Microneedling post-treatment instructions-
Do not use anti-inflammatory medications such as Motrin, Advil, or Ibuprofen as they will interfere with the natural inflammatory response that is responsible for your skin rejuvenation.
Avoid tanning and sun exposure for at least a week after your procedure. If you are in the sun make sure you are using an SPF of at least 30 and re-applying every hour.
Eat fresh pineapple to optimize healing.
Avoid strenuous exercise, sweating, and swimming for 24 hours.
Treat skin gently, washing with a mild cleanser and cool water.
No exfoliation for three days after treatment. (Washcloths, Clarisonic brushes, scrubs, enzymes, retinol or acids)
Restart professional skincare after 72 hours.
Avoid make-up for at least 24 hours. It is best to use mineral make-up for a week following the procedure. Clean all make-up brushes before use.
Avoid excessive heat such as a sauna, hot shower or even putting your face near an open oven or over boiling water while cooking.
Do not scratch or pick at the skin.
Help your skin heal by using antioxidant/skin lightening serums. Ask your skincare professional for the best one for your skin.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! This is your most important task prior to your airbrush tanning appointment. Removal of all dead skin 24 hours prior to tanning will ensure a flawless, even tan and ensure it lasts as long as possible.
Shave or wax 24 hours prior to your appointment. Apply a deep moisturizer the evening before.
Shower the morning of your appointment. Do not apply moisturizers, deodorant, or perfume after your shower as these can be barriers to the solution and cause uneven or green color.
Bring LOOSE, DARK clothing to wear home. Flip flops are recommended. You will dry with a fan after the tan, but the solution may remain slightly wet for about an hour. Tight clothing and socks can cause unwanted lines.
Most women tan nude, if you would be more comfortable with a swimsuit on please feel free to bring one. Men must wear some sort of bottom during the tan.
Avoid water and sweating. Shower at four hours for a light tan, six hours for a medium tan, and eight hours for a dark tan. Shower using a PH balanced shower gel.
Do not use drying soaps, loofahs, washcloths, or exfoliants.
When you shave, be sure to use a sharp razor.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize with a water-based moisturizer. This is the best way to keep your color.
Swimming and excessive sweating can pull your color out faster.
Make sure you have exfoliated all the color off before your next appointment.
Most importantly enjoy your sexy, cancer-free tan!!!

Avoid oil-based products used around your eyes.
Do not use mascara or lash curlers on lash extensions.
Clean your lashes every few days with a gentle, oil-free eye make-up remover.
Be sure to book an appointment for a fill every 2-4 weeks to keep your lashes looking full; this will also help you avoid having to pay the cost for a full set. (Lash appointments made after 3 weeks from the previous lash service are considered a full set.)
Discontinue use of any topical medications such as Retin-A at least one week prior to service
If you have used Accutane you must have stopped using it at least six months prior to any skincare service

Discontinue the use of at-home skincare with glycolic acid, salicylic acid, retinol, or enzymes at least three days before your treatment
If you have a history of cold sores it is recommended that you take an anti-viral for at least three days before your treatment
For best results use a glycolic cream such as Glymed’s Treatment Cream nightly, available at Beaute Marque, for at least two weeks prior to your treatment. Discontinue the use of it three nights prior to your appointment
Avoid sun exposure for at least seven days. If you absolutely cannot avoid the sun you must use a sunblock of at least 30 SPF and re-apply every two hours while in the sun. A hat and sunglasses is also recommended. Our favorite is Glymed’s Environmental Protection Gel available at Beaute Marque Studio.

No chemical peels, laser treatments, or facials for at least a week after your treatment
You may continue your Glymed Treatment Cream after three nights
It is possible to have a few breakouts after the treatment because any trapped bacteria will be brought to the surface. DO NOT pick or pull at the skin for at least seven days as you are more likely to pigment.
Keep your skin clean and moisturized. This is a great time to use serums and high-quality moisturizers since the skin is going to absorb the product deeper than usual. If you need help finding the best products for your skin, let your provider know
Pre and post care are the same as microdermabrasion except that with most of the chemical peels you won’t be able to get your face wet for 12 hours after the peel and you want to avoid any heat such as saunas, hot tubs or steam from boiling water.
If you have sensitive teeth you may want to use a toothpaste for tooth sensitivity for two weeks prior to your appointment. There is a mineral desensitizer that you can purchase for only $15 at your appointment to help with sensitivity. It is also good for home use to restore depleted minerals to the teeth.
Make sure you have no cavities, the application of the whitening gel to cavities will send small shock-like pains into the tooth
No food or drink for one hour after your treatment
Follow the white food diet for 24 hours to avoid re-staining the teeth
Your results will last months longer if you avoid smoking, teeth-staining foods, and drinks
Avoid acidic and extremely hot or cold food and drinks as these allow stains to penetrate the enamel
