Post-Care Q Switch Protocols
After treatment, it’s crucial to protect the treated area from the sun. Continue to use sunscreen with a high SPF and wear protective clothing for at least a few weeks post-treatment.
Avoid hot showers, saunas, and strenuous exercise for the first 24-48 hours after treatment to prevent excessive heat and sweating that can irritate the skin.
Minimize Physical Activity
Swelling and discomfort under the chin are common after Belkyra. Applying ice or cold packs to the treated area for short intervals, as recommended by your provider, can help reduce swelling.
Skin Care Products
Follow your practitioner’s recommendations for post-treatment skincare. They may suggest gentle cleansers and moisturizers while avoiding harsh products like retinoids or glycolic acids until the skin has fully healed.
Swelling and Redness
It’s normal to experience some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort after Q-switch laser treatment. Applying a cold compress can help alleviate these symptoms.
If blisters form, do not pop them. Keep the area clean and apply an antibiotic ointment as recommended.
Avoid applying makeup to the treated area until your practitioner gives the green light, typically after a few days.
Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and assess the need for additional treatments.
Results may take several weeks to become fully apparent. Be patient and follow your practitioner’s advice for optimal outcomes
