Frecator Post Care Instructions
Frecator Post Care Instructions
- Do not wash treatment site until the next day after the Freactor treatment. Softening of the brand-new scab with water may cause it to come off prematurely and the skin will take longer to heal.
- Do not scratch the treated area. During the healing process the area may become itchy but it is important to completely avoid touching and scratching of the treated area.
- Do not apply any product on the treatment site. Products that are not instructed to apply most likely to cause irritation of the skin.
- Do not use sauna, steam room, swimming and Jacuzzi or take a long shower or do activities that cause excess sweat until the scab falls off. Extra wetness of the treatment site may cause the scab to fall off prematurely and this will result in the scab to form again and it causes delay in the healing process.
- Do not use any acid product until two months after the treatment. There should be no exfoliation on a brand-new skin as it may cause major irritation or acid burn to the new cells.
- Do not have microdermabrasion treatment or any other exfoliations for at least one month after the treatment.
- Wear sunblock every day.
- Apply Neosporin if there is a redness around the treatment site (apply at night only)
- Schedule a micro dermabrasion procedure one month after the treatment as it will speed up the cellular turn over and healing process.
- The treatment area will form an immediate protective scab which can be from gray light brown to dark brown or even black in color.
- Keep the treatment area as dry as possible.
- The scab will fall off naturally in an average 7 to 10 days.
- Large and deeper skin irregularities may produce 2 to 3 successive crust and last up to three weeks.
- In an area of good blood supply and abundant subcutaneous tissue healing will be rapid.
- During the healing process each skin type reacts differently based on the amount of pigment cells in the skin. Pigment cells give the skin color and serve as a protective barrier against environmental damage.
- The body ‘s natural healing and defense mechanism starts working immediately after the skin being treated with Frecator.
- After the scab falls off the new skin appears to be very fresh and light pink in color. From this point on the healing continues till the color blends into the original skin tone.
- There are different stages associated with the skin’s healing process based on a natural response of the skin. The process involves color changes on the treated area, called post inflammatory pigment which is a temporary pigment response to inflammation.
- It is extremely important to continue to follow post care instructions explained in this document.
- The lighter your skin tone, the faster it will be for the treated area to blend into its original skin shade. For example, very fair skin may take 2 to 3 weeks, medium to deep skin tones may take up to 4 months to 6 1/2 months for the skin to blend into its original skin shade.
- Recovery time may also be longer on treated areas that are further away from the heart (where the blood circulation is not as good).
- Arms and hands can take up to six months legs and thighs can take up to 12 to 15 months to blend into its original skin shade.
