Aerolase

Aerolase: Pre Treatment

Pre-treatment

Aerolase offers a versatile solution for various concerns, including hair removal, vein treatment, and wrinkle reduction. To ensure a smooth and successful experience, here's a breakdown of pre-treatment preparation:

Sun Protection and Self-Tanning:

  • Minimise Sun Exposure: Avoid direct sunlight, self-tanning products, and tanning beds for at least 2 weeks before your treatment. Sun exposure can make your skin more susceptible to side effects.
  • Daily SPF 50+: Diligently apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 50+ daily in the weeks leading up to your appointment. This reduces the risk of hyperpigmentation.

Skincare Product Adjustments:

  • Active Ingredient Pause: Discontinue the use of topical products containing Vitamin A, AHAs, and BHAs 1 week prior to treatment. These ingredients can increase skin sensitivity during the laser procedure.
  • Skip Other Treatments: Avoid undergoing any other facial treatments, such as scrubs or peels, for 1 week before your Aerolase appointment.

Consultation and Communication:

  • Schedule a Consultation: During your consultation, discuss your desired outcome and any questions you may have with your DNTL Code therapist. They will explain the treatment process, potential risks, and realistic results tailored to your specific needs.
  • Medical History Disclosure: Inform your therapist about your complete medical history, including any history of Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections.
AEROLASE: POST TREATMENT

Following your Aerolase treatment at DNTL Code, we recommend adhering to the following aftercare protocol to optimise results and minimise potential side effects.

Transient Erythema:

  • Mild erythema (redness) is a common post-treatment reaction. To promote comfort, cool compresses may be applied for up to one hour following the procedure.

Cleansing and Moisturising:

  • For the subsequent 2-3 days, cleanse the treated area with lukewarm water and a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser as recommended by your DNTL Code dermal therapist. Avoid harsh scrubs or products containing potentially irritating ingredients like AHA and BHA’s or Vitamin A products for 48-72hrs after treatment.
  • To maintain optimal hydration, utilise a fragrance-free moisturiser throughout the day.

Sun Protection:

  • Following Aerolase treatment, the skin exhibits increased sun sensitivity. Rigorous sun protection is paramount. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 50+ daily, regardless of weather conditions.

Exercise:

  • Light physical activity is permissible; however, strenuous exercise or activities that induce significant sweating are best deferred for 2-3 days post-treatment.

Individualised Care:

  • While these guidelines provide a general framework, your DNTL Code therapist will tailor aftercare instructions specific to your unique treatment plan and skin type.

Communication:

- Should you experience any unexpected discomfort, prolonged erythema, or blistering, please do not hesitate to contact your DNTL Code therapist promptly

Bioremodelling

Bioremodelling: Pre Treatment

Bio-remodelling
injectables offer a unique approach to skin rejuvenation by stimulating
collagen and elastin production. To optimise results and minimise potential
side effects, here are some crucial pre-treatment care guidelines:

Consultation and
Communication:

  • Open Dialogue: During your consultation, openly discuss your desired outcomes and expectations with your DNTL Code therapist. They will explain the bio-remodelling process, potential risks, and realistic results achievable based on your individual needs and skin concerns.
  • Medical History Disclosure: Inform your therapist about your complete medical history, including any allergies, current medications (prescription and over-the-counter), and previous cosmetic procedures.

Blood Thinning
Medications:

Discontinuation or Adjustment: Certain medications, such as blood thinners or some supplements, can increase your risk of bruising after the injection. Discuss with your doctor and DNTL Code therapist if any medications need to be adjusted or temporarily stopped before treatment.

Sun Protection:

  • Sun Avoidance: While bio-remodelling doesn't directly target sun damage, maintaining good sun protection habits is essential for overall skin health. Continue applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily, even on cloudy days.

Hydration:

  • Hydration Support: Staying well-hydrated in the days leading up to your treatment is beneficial. Drink plenty of water to optimise your skin's health.

Discontinue
Certain Products:

  • Active Ingredient Pause: Inform your DNTL Code therapist about any topical skincare products you are using, particularly those containing retinols, AHAs, BHAs, or benzoyl peroxide. You may be advised to discontinue their use for a few days before treatment to minimise skin sensitivity.

Realistic
Expectations:

  • Gradual Improvement: Bio-remodelling works by stimulating collagen production, which is a gradual process. Be prepared for subtle improvements over time, with the full results typically taking 2-3 months to become evident. Often, an initial course of 2 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended.

Appointment
Preparation:

  • Arrival Time: Arrive at your appointment on time to allow for any necessary paperwork or pre-treatment preparation.
  • Makeup Removal: Remove all makeup from the treatment area before your appointment.
  • Comfort Clothing: Wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the injection sites.

Questions and
Concerns:

  • Open Communication: Don't hesitate to ask your DNTL Code therapist any questions or voice any concerns you may have before your treatment.
Bioremodelling: Post Treatment

Following your bio-stimulator injection treatment at DNTL
Code, a dedicated aftercare regimen is essential to maximise the benefits and
promote optimal healing. Here's a detailed guide to ensure a smooth recovery:

Minimise Discomfort:

  • Transient Swelling and Redness: Mild swelling and erythema (redness) are common at the injection sites. Applying cool compresses for brief intervals throughout the day can alleviate discomfort.

Minimise Bruising:

  • Blood Thinning Medications: To minimise the risk of bruising, avoid blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and certain supplements (e.g., fish oil, vitamin E) for at least 7 days prior to and following treatment, unless medically necessary and cleared by your physician.

Gentle Skincare:

  • Cleansing: For the next 24 hours, avoid cleansing the treated area. Thereafter, cleanse gently with lukewarm water and a fragrance-free cleanser recommended by your DNTL Code therapist. Avoid harsh scrubs or products containing irritating ingredients like AHA and BHA’s.
  • Makeup: Refrain from applying makeup to the treated area for 24 hours to minimise the risk of infection. If you want to wear makeup, please use mineral based makeup which is non-comedogenic.

Minimise Inflammation:

  • Heat Exposure: Avoid strenuous exercise, hot showers, saunas, and excessive sun exposure for 24-48 hours after treatment. These activities can exacerbate inflammation.

Optimise Results:

  • Facial Massage: In some cases, your DNTL Code therapist may recommend gentle massage of the treated area to promote optimal product distribution. Follow their specific instructions for duration and frequency.

Maintain Hydration:

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to support healing and collagen production.

Individualised Care:

  • While these guidelines provide a general framework, your DNTL Code therapist will tailor post-treatment instructions specific to your unique treatment plan and skin type.

Communication:

  • Should you experience any unexpected discomfort, prolonged swelling or redness, or signs of infection (e.g., fever, pus discharge), contact your DNTL Code therapist promptly.
Chemical Peels: Pre-Treatment

Chemical peels offer a versatile solution for addressing various skin concerns. Here's a breakdown of essential pre-treatment preparation to ensure a smooth and successful experience:

Sun Protection and Self-Tanning:

  • Minimise Sun Exposure: Avoid direct sunlight, self-tanning products, and tanning beds for at least 1 week before your treatment. Sun exposure can increase your skin's sensitivity to the peel.
  • SPF 30+ Daily: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily in the weeks leading up to your appointment.

Skincare Product Adjustments:

  • Active Ingredient Pause: Discontinue the use of topical products containing Vitamin A, AHAs, BHAs, or benzoyl peroxide for 1 week before treatment. These ingredients can increase skin sensitivity during the chemical peel.
  • Other Treatment Avoidance: Avoid undergoing any other facial treatments, such as waxing or laser hair removal, for 1 week before your appointment to prevent irritation.

Hydration and Lifestyle:

Hydration Boost: In the days leading up to your treatment, focus on proper hydration to optimise your skin's health. Drink plenty of water and consider using a hydrating moisturiser.
Healthy Habits: Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as they can impair healing.

Consultation and Communication:

  • Open Dialogue: During your consultation with your DNTL Code therapist, discuss your desired outcomes, any concerns, and your current skincare routine. They will explain the chemical peel process, potential risks, and realistic results tailored to your specific needs.
  • Medical History Disclosure: Inform your therapist about your complete medical history, including any allergies or skin conditions.

Appointment Preparation:

  • Arrive on Time: Arrive at your appointment on time to allow for any necessary paperwork or consultation.
  • Makeup Removal: Remove all makeup from the treated area before your appointment.
Chemical Peels: Post Treatment

Following your chemical peel at DNTL Code, proper aftercare is essential to optimise results and minimise potential side effects. Here's a detailed guide:

Gentle Cleansing:

  • Non-Irritating Cleansers: Use gentle, fragrance-free cleansers recommended by your DNTL Code therapist to cleanse the treated area. Avoid harsh scrubs or products that may irritate the newly healing skin.

Sun Protection:

  • Rigorous SPF Defence: Following a chemical peel, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun. Rigorous sun protection is crucial. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 50+ daily, reapplying every two hours, and more frequently if sweating or swimming.
  • Sun Protection Gear: When outdoors, wear protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses to provide additional sun protection for the treated area.

Moisturisation:

  • Hydration Support: Keep your skin well-hydrated by applying fragrance-free Moisturisers prescribed by your DNTL Code therapist. These cosmeceutical Moisturisers will promote healing and optimal results.

Exfoliation Avoidance:

  • Hold Off on AHAs and BHAs: Avoid using products containing AHAs or BHAs, as they can further exfoliate and irritate your newly peeled skin.

Natural Desquamation:

  • Let It Flake Naturally: Allow any peeling or flaking skin to come off naturally. Avoid picking or peeling at the skin, as this can lead to scarring or discoloration.

Follow-Up Appointments:

  • Monitor Healing: Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your DNTL Code therapist to monitor your skin's healing process and address any concerns you may have.
