Advanced Skin Tightening Pre/Post Care


Advanced Skin Tightening Pre/Post Care

Pre Care LST

  • Avoid the sun for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your laser treatment. Sun-exposed skin is more susceptible to injury during laser treatments. PLEASE NOTE: Recently tanned skin CANNOT be treated due to risk of burns and/or hypopigmentation.
  • Avoid all topical medications to the treated area for one week prior to your appointment.
  • Discontinue use of self-tanning products 2 weeks prior to your appointment. All residual self-tanner must be removed.
  • Discontinue use of any antibiotics at least one week prior to your treatment. Let your provider know if you are taking any prescription medications.

Post CareLST

  • Wear a daily sunblock (SPF 30+) at all times. Avoid all sun exposure to reduce the chances of hyperpigmentation.
  • Do not pick or scratch the treated area and avoid products that cause irritation. Do not use abrasive scrubs, toners or products that contain alpha- or beta- hydroxy acids, or retinoids (ie. Tretinoin, Retin-A, Tazorac, Differin, Renova)
  • Treat your skin with care when washing for 24 hours. Use lukewarm water and gentle products.


Immediately after treatment, you may feel like you have a sunburn. You may experience some erythema (redness) and/or swelling (edema), which may last up to 2 hours or more.  Although not likely, the redness could last up to 2-3 days.
