Pre-treatment products should include Revive serum every morning, Repose serum every evening, and for breakout prone areas, Balance serum twice daily. Avoid sun exposure, tanning, or using any self-tanning products for at least 4 weeks before treatment. You should also stop using retinol or glycolic acid products for 2 weeks before treatment. One week before treatment, avoid alcohol, aspirin, and other blood-thinning medications or supplements. After your Fraxel Dual treatment, you can expect dryness as the skin sheds in tiny columns over the following 1-2 weeks. This process is barely visible but can feel like sand on the skin. MMSkincare Essentials like Revive, Repose, and Rescue are formulated to optimize this collagen building process. We highly recommend using the Revive Serum generously to all areas of red or pink skin several times a day to maximize your skin healing and redness reduction; apply the Repose Serum to all areas every evening covered by the essential Rescue cream for extra soothing moisturization; use the Revive hydrogel masks daily for 4 days for 20 minutes for an incredibly good healing experience. Last, Sasha Suncare Mineral face lotion and body SPF are perfect to add to your skincare kit to protect your skin year round. If you experience pink acneiform bumps after fractional laser treatments, this is considered a sterile folliculitis where tiny hair follicles are inflamed. Add to your routine the MMBalance serum twice daily to control these areas of breakouts.
