The day after your treatment and for the next four days, just apply the cream three times a day. Only apply a thin layer of cream to allow the skin to breathe.
Keep your hair away from your face in the first two days to avoid infection.
The treated area may experience the following symptoms for two to seven days after the treatment, which is completely normal
Dryness and itching
Don’t be tempted to remove any scabs by force that may form on the treated area as this may remove the pigment along with the crust.
Things you should avoid for 1-2 weeks
Soaps, facial cleansers, water on pigmented areas
Washing pigmented area
Retin-A on pigmented areas
Makeup on pigmented area for 5 days, including non-allergenic
Hot, steamy, long showers
Sun on pigmented areas
Jacuzzi or saunas
Terry towels on pigmented areas
Ideally, you should avoid water for at least one week, but that is not always possible. So, shower with your back to the water to avoid water, shampoo, and conditioner from getting into the pigmented areas.
Make sure you wash your hair with your head tilted backward to stop water running down you face.
Cover the pigmented area with a sufficient amount of the cream provided.
If the area does get wet, pat dry very gently with a clean towel or tissue.
