Accordingly, avoid use of Accutane for 6 months prior to treatment.
Additionally, avoid tanning beds, spray tans, and sun for a minimum of two weeks.

Also, stop the use of Retin – One week prior to the treatment.
Before treatment, shave the area closely the day of the treatment.
Besides this, avoid makeup on areas to be treated. Comparatively, if there is makeup on the treatment area, it shall be removed prior to the treatment.

Laser Genesis POST-CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Emphatically, apply a cool pack (not frozen) to the treated site immediately after treatment. Eventually, cool packs are applied for 10 min with a 10 min interval for approximately 2 hours or needed during post-treatment.
Following treatment, moisturize with Aloe Vera gel or any light fragrance-free moisturizer, after the first 48 hours.
Use high factor sunscreen, SPF 45 or higher. A good sun block will contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide and will protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
Further, the first 5 days following treatment, care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated site. Thereafter, avoid hot baths, massage, and exercising.
Instead, Apply 1% hydrocortisone cream to the treated area every 12 hours for the first 48 hours.
Likewise, If scabs appear after blistering, they should be kept soft with a lubricating cream. Blistered or ulcerated skin may be treated with an antibiotic ointment or burn treatment cream.
Meanwhile, if bruising occurs, avoid picking at it. Picking can cause scarring. Moreover, once the scab falls off, the skin may be lighter, or darker. This usually resolves over a few months. There will be an obvious color difference from the unburned skin.
Nonetheless, Fillers or other injectables should not be done within 2 weeks before/after treatment, or at the discretion of the physician.
Henceforth, avoid using skin irritants, Retin-A, Benzyl Peroxide, Glycolic Acid, and astringents on the treated areas. Chemical peels are not recommended throughout the treatment series.
Significantly, don’t tan after treatment. Tanning after treatment may cause hyperpigmentation.
