Spray tanning Aftercare

  • Remove all jewellery
  • Remove all make up

The correct precautions to be taken 24 after tanning:

  • Do not have a shower or bath for up to 8 – 10 hours whilst the tan is developing or wash your hands.
  • Make sure you do not touch your tan whilst the tan is developing as it can be transferred on to the palms of your hands.
  • Do not apply make up or moisturizes until the tan has been washed off.
  • Once the tan has developed have a shower/bath and rinse the tan until the water runs clear. Do not exfoliate at this point just wash with a normal body wash.
  • When you get out of the shower/bath pat yourself dry with a towel. Make sure you do not rub as this can cause the tan to shed quicker.
  • Moisturise your entire body every time you bath or shower in order to keep the skin soft and supple and prolong the tan. It is preferable use the same brand of tan and moisturiser, as the products are cohesive and this will extend the tan.
  • The tan will always come off a little quicker on the face and the hands, as these are the parts of the body that are washed and exposed to the outside elements.
  • When the tan starts to come off, it is important to exfoliate the tan in a circular motion with a suitable exfoliator, preferable the same brand as the tan and moisturiser, you can also use either gloves or brush, to help buff off the excess tan and give a more even tan as it wears off after about a week or so.
  • Avoid activities that make you perspire.
  • Drink through a straw as contact with liquid can strip colour from around your mouth whilst the tan is developing.
  • Avoid swimming pools as the chlorine can cause the tan to fade prematurely.

Cryo Pen After Care

  • Blisters, Blistering can happen with any cryotherapy treatment and is indiscriminate. The Cryopen is the most effective way of avoiding blisters as we are only treating the affected area and not healthy tissue. If a blister does appear, please don’t pop it. It will go down on its own. If it pops, weeping may occur. If so, use a smear of Savlon or Germolene cream twice a day. An adhesive dressing such as a plaster can be used to cover the area to protect it.
  • Skin Tags These turn black at the base and drop off over a period of one to six weeks. Larger skin tags of 3mm+ may need a second freeze. Please contact us after six weeks if they need to be retreated.  If the area does become tender, you can use Savlon or Germolene twice a day. A plaster can be used to cover the area to stop the treated area being irritated by clothing rubbing on it.
  • Warts and Verrucae It is recommended if they are still there, warts and verrucae should be re-treated 4 weeks after your first treatment.
  • Milia These are superficial keratin filled epidermal cysts and normally flatten and disappear with Cryotherapy quite quickly. There is no need to do anything other than follow the blister advice if one appears
  • Pigmentation and cherry Angiomas The treated area may raise and look like a bee-sting. Do not worry this is perfectly normal. The redness will subside in a few hours.
  • General advice for all skin lesions In the case of all lesions, over the next 24 hours the area will go darker and develop a crust on the surface. Do not pick this off. When it naturally falls away you will see new skin which is a shiny pink colour.  This is not scarring. It will re pigment over the following weeks and could take several months.
  • The histamine in the area which was treated will create an itchy sensation for between ten and sixty minutes, do not worry this is perfectly normal.
  • Do not pick the treated area at any time after treatment otherwise the area will take longer to heal.  If a wheel/scab is knocked off accidentally it will also take longer to heal, but you should still have the same outcome of a successful treatment.
  • Please use a sunblock factor 50 on any pigmentation removal until it has re-pigmented, this may take up to eight weeks.
  • You can continue to use make up, deodorant or perfumes on treated areas but try and leave for as long as you can on the day of treatment.
  • If the small crust has not fallen off after four weeks, please wait until it has done so before contacting the clinic. Skin sometimes takes several weeks and even months to regenerate.
  • If the skin being treated is tanned please remember the healing skin will no longer be tanned. It will eventually re-pigment as it matures.
  • Permanent alopecia can occur in a treated area which is usually covered with hair.
  • Treatments that do not heal after six weeks should be reviewed by your doctor or dermatologist. Please contact us to tell us if this happens

 

These aftercare guidelines will be updated occasionally so you should check before each treatment for any changes or additions.
