Instructions for Post-Venus Legacy Laser


DAY 1-7:
-The healing time for any given treatment varies between different clients. The following represents the general recovery phases you might expect. Individual clients may experience variations from this course.

-Swelling of your wrinkles occurs immediately. It is possible for clients to have their under eye area swollen for the first day, but this swelling will subside. There will be redness and very minimal warm emanating from the area for the first 3 hours. You should notify us if you experience pain that is severe or excessive, as this is unusual.

-Bruising is not at all common, but let us know if this occurs.

Post redness is mild, and you may return to regular activities immediately. Do not apply ice or cooling compresses as the heat response is the body’s natural healing response.

Moisturizer may be applied immediately after each treatment, and then should be applied regularly throughout the course of the treatment.

Can be applied immediately after the treatments. It is important that you remove all make up that is applied to the skin at night. Do not sleep with make up on the treated area.

You should notify us if you experience pain that is severe or excessive, as this is unusual.

Sun Avoidance:
Sun avoidance should become a permanent component of your long-term skin care program. Always use an SPF 30 or greater even on a cloudy day.

Long-term Skin Care:
In addition to sun avoidance, we suggest all clients use long-term skin care that will optimize the youthful, rejuvenated appearance you have achieved. We offer clients a program for long-term maintenance of your facial skin. This unique program offers state-of-the-art rejuvenating creams that are only available and administered by our medical team.

Home Regimen:
To enhance the results of the treatments, it’s recommended to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Gaining weight during the treatments could compromise the end results.

Warning Signs: The following are some of the symptoms that should alert you to the possibility of an impending or existing complication and you should contact the clinic.
Infection: Infection may be present if you notice:
(i) Increased (rather than decreasing) facial swelling after the first 24-36 hours.
(ii) Redness spreading beyond the area of resurfacing that is warm and tender to touch.
