Before the laser facial procedure, it is good if you can hydrate your skin as much as possible. A good recommendation is to stop using retinoids, such as retinol, at least 3 days before the procedure (but best – a week before the procedure). This is not mandatory, but it is beneficial, especially in cases in which the patients have more sensitive skin. It is also recommended to stop using glycolic acid and all other ingredients, which can peel or sensitize the skin a few days before the procedure. Before every procedure, the doctor will examine the skin, so that they can know whether they can treat it safely. Come to the clinic without makeup or skincare products on the skin, if you are in a hurry and only have time for the therapy itself. If not, the cosmetics will be removed in the clinic. After that, you will be invited to a laser room, where the doctor working with you will give you small dark glasses, which will protect your eyes from the laser. After you lay down and put on the glasses, the Nd:YAG laser will be turned on and the doctor will use it on your face in zones, moving the applicator in a circular manner. The laser works both on the surface of the skin, as well as in the deep layers and targets bacteria and impurities, decreases pore size, stimulates the synthesis of collagen and treats hyperpigmentation.
