Going for skin care procedure, keep 3 things in mind-
- Avoid tanning and sun exposure for two wks prior to treatment. Use a sunscreen SPF more than 30.
- Beware of what you are using every day. Discontinue use of any products containing glycolic and lactic acids ( these are high strength alpha hydroxy acids ) and prescription vitamin A derivatives ( retinoids) one to two wks prior to the procedure.
- Any open sores, lesions, acne, skin infections etc. limit certain procedures till they heal.
