Postcare for High Frequency

Use an SPF on your face to protect it after any advanced facial.
Drink plenty of water. This is to help flush out the toxins from your body now that your lymphatic drainage system has been boosted by your treatment.
Don’t have any other facial treatments for 24-48 hours to allow your skin to recover from the treatment and reap all the benefits.
Avoid make-up for 24 hours to allow your skin to breath and to support the skin-cleansing effect of the treatment.
Avoid touching the skin to prevent bacteria or germs from your fingers getting onto your skin.
Avoid sun beds and UV rays.
