OptiLight Guidelines

Before Your OptiLight Treatment:

  • Avoid extended sun exposure for 2 weeks prior to treatment, including tanning beds and tanning lotions.

  • Discontinue any products containing Retina-A, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents or Vitamin C for one week prior and one week after treatment.

  • Notify us if anything changes with your health history or medications prior to each session.

The Day of Your Appointment:

  • Please arrive with a clean face, no creams or make-up on the treatment area if possible.

  • Makeup wipes will be used to clean your face prior to treatment.

  • Allow 30 minutes for the session.

  • Pre-treatment photos will be taken for documentation.

  • Eyeshield and protective goggles will be placed over your eyes and coupling gel applied to face.

  • Test spots will be performed first to establish energy level and may increase with each subsequent session. Each session will have 2 passes with the faceplate and 2 passes with the Optlight tip.

  • Your eyes will be protected but you will see a bright flash of light with each pulse.

After Your OptiLight Treatment:

  • You skin may be sensitive after: any warmth sensation, redness, and/or swelling usually resolves within several hours to 3 days post-treatment.

  • Your skin may feel like it has a slight sunburn for a few hours after treatment. It is ok to apply aloe vera or Aquaphor.

  • You may apply a clean cold washcloth to the treatment area post-treatment (avoid applying ice packs to the treatment area).

  • Sun spots and age spots may darken and pigmented areas may crust and begin to flake after a few days.

  • Do not pick, rub, scrub, or exfoliate while healing.

  • Avoid hot showers and baths until the area is fully healed,cool to warm water should be used when cleansing the area.

  • No saunas or hot tubs for 4-5 days after.

  • Make-up can be applied post-treatment as long as the skin is not broken, irritated, or inflamed. Avoid scrubbing or irritating the area post-treatment.

  • Avoid exercise or vigorous activity at least 24 hours post-treatment.

  • It is crucial to avoid any sun exposure for the 1st 48 hours post-treatment. Avoid tanning as much as possible as this may enhance melanin regeneration, resulting in unwanted hyperpigmentation.

  • Apply sunblock with SPF 30 or higher daily. Avoid extended sun exposure and wear a hat and sunglasses when outside. Try to keep the treatment area out of the sun as much as possible for at least 4 weeks post-treatment.
