Know Your Skincare Products and Medications

Follow Pre-Treatment Instructions

Come with clean skin, if possible!

Coming in with a clean, makeup-free face means that I will have more time to assess and treat your skin, instead of removing your makeup. Although, I do understand if you absolutely cannot avoid wearing makeup.

Be sure to take a picture of all of your skincare products and medications. Knowing what you use on your skin, and in your body, is important to your skin health and treatment effectiveness. Your esthetician needs to be aware of everything you use.

It's important to follow the pre-treatment instructions below to ensure that your skin gets the focus it deserves. Be honest with your esthetician during your consultation to avoid causing any harm to your skin.


  • Do not exfoliate your skin or use any harsh products for 3-5 days before your treatment.

  • Do not pick at your skin or blemishes.

  • Take pictures of all of your medications, supplements, vitamins, and skin care products you are currently using. 

  • Avoid using any retinols or any Vitamin A topicals for at least 7 days before your treatment.

  • Do not tan for 5-7 days before your facial.

  • Avoid using Accutane, RetinA, Renova, and Tretinoin for 6 months before receiving any facial treatments.



  • Avoid using hot water on your skin the day of. I normally suggest using lukewarm water always on your face.

  • Do not exfoliate for 5-7 days after your treatment, unless otherwise advised.

  • Do not wear makeup for 12+ hours after a facial.

  • Treat your skin very gently for the next 3-5 days.

  • Use suggested professional products as suggested by your esthetician.

  • Do not pick at your skin or blemishes, as this can cause your skin to become irritated, and can also cause adverse pigmentation.

  • Do not tan for 7 days after your treatment. For many conditions it's important to avoid tanning at all.

  • Avoid touching your skin with hands that have not been washed. It's important to keep your hands clean to avoid spreading bacteria to your clean, new skin.

  • Reach out to your esthetician if you have any questions, comments or concerns!
