Vivace Aftercare

IMMEDIATELY AFTER TREATMENT
• Avoid exercise, swimming, hot showers or any heat inducing activities 48 hours post treatment and ensure you keep the treated area clean.
• ‘Stratamed’ or ‘Stratacel’ is applied to skin post treatment and should be applied over the next 48 hours am and pm to encourage healing.
• Do not rub, scratch or pick at your skin 5-7 days post treatment.
• Minimise and avoid unprotected sun exposure as it may cause post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin which has the potential to be permanent).
• Avoid applying make-up directly after treatment. Mineral make-up can be worn the day following treatment, however it’s best to wait 48 hours.
• SPF 50 must be worn daily
• Only use a mild gentle cleanser to keep treated area clean and avoid any exfoliating and active skincare 5-7 days following your treatment. Eg. Do not use BHA, AHAs or acids on skin post treatment including Rationale No 5 serum and No 6 cream.
• Injectables and facial treatments including peels and microdermabrasion should not be performed for up to 2 weeks post.
• LED healing light therapy can be done straight away and continued over the week following your procedure to encourage the healing process.
• Men are advised to not shave for up to 1 week post treatment.

AFTER THE SKIN HAS HEALED (1 WEEK LATER)
• A normal skin care regimen can be resumed once the skin has completely healed (generally 1 week following your treatment).
• Mineral make-up can be worn once the skin has healed (wait 48 hours if possible). Using makeup on broken skin poses a risk of infection due to infiltration of makeup into open tissue, this also poses risk of hyperpigmentation & scarring.
• AHA and BHA actives can be used to soften and superficially resurface the epidermis but only once the skin has recovered (ie 5-7 days post).

BETWEEN TREATMENTS
• Daily application of topical Vitamin C and Vitamin A serum is recommended for acceleration of regenerative process and to enhance results.
• Please report any side effects to your treating doctor/therapist.
• It is essential that you attend your review appointment 2 and 4 weeks’ after each treatment.
• SPF50+ is essential for use every day.
