2. Do NOT pick at your skin.
3. Do keep your skin clean with mild soap or cleanser and water.
4. Do use witch hazel, salicylic acid, or any mild acne solution if you have problems with breakouts. Protect your skin with an antibiotic ointment if you work in the health care industry.
5. Contact Barbara at 785.554.5590 if you have any concerns.
The following activities should be avoided for 24-48 hours after a treatment to prevent contaminating the freshly treated area:
