Cleanse the skin two times a day with plain, lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser, beginning the morning after the treatment. Use your hands and gentle patting motions. Do Not rub, scrub, or use an exfoliant or skin brush such as a Clarisonic on the treated area.
Moisturizer should be applied generously with clean hands over the treated area and reapplied whenever your skin feels dry. Do not apply any other products that you were not instructed to use. We recommend using SkinMedica HA5 for hydration.
Sunscreen is a MUST and should be used daily beginning the day after treatment and used consistently for up to 3 months post-procedure. Use a physical sunscreen with Broadband UVA and UVB protection and a SPF of 30. Ensure to reapply during sun exposure. We recommend SkinMedica Mineral Shield sunscreen, which comes in tinted or clear.
For general post-treatment discomfort, an over-the-counter oral pain reliever might help, such as Tylenol if you have no contraindications to taking it. Avoid scratching and itching as scarring and pigmentation complications can occur.
Tips & Tricks
Use soft cloth and soft towels to avoid any scrubbing.
Make-up can typically be worn once the peeling process is complete.
Wear a wide-brimmed hat or protective clothing for 2 months post-treatment to avoid blistering, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and hypopigmentation.
When showering, avoid getting shampoo directly on the treated area.
Avoid strenuous exercise and sweating until after the skin has healed.
There may be some degree of swelling immediately post-treatment, however, if you experience excessive swelling or any of the following signs of infection, you should contact our office immediately.
Signs of infection include:
Drainage – looks like pus
Increased warmth at or around the treated area
What to Expect and What you Should Do:
Feeling of Warmth
What to expect – The treated area may be extremely warm for 1-2 hours after the treatment. Warmth may continue for 12-24 hours after the treatment.
What to do – Cold compresses may provide comfort during this time. Also, a mineral water spray might provide some relief and much needed moisture to the skin.
What to expect – Redness is normal and expected.
What to do – Use gentle cleansers and keep your skin moisturized and out of the sun which will allow your skin time to heal and limit further stress on your skin.
What to expect – MENDs (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris) will appear on the 2nd or 3rd day after treatment as tiny dark spots and bronzed appearance to the treated skin.
What to do – MENDs are part of the healing process where treated tissue is working its way out of your body as new fresh skin is regenerated. During this time, your skin will be very dry and feel like sandpaper before flaking and peeling off. Keep your skin well moisturized to support the healing process. Do not pick at your skin.
Possible Side Effects:
What to expect – Swelling is common and expected immediately after treatment.
What to do – Use of a cold compress will help to relieve the swelling. To avoid further swelling, you may choose to sleep in an upright position the first couple of nights after the treatment.

lives up to them.
I was referred to Judy and I'm so glad I went. She is very informative and caring about making her clients look the best! I'm happy with my results and I can't wait to go back. Thank you.

I had Judy use a filler to fix a pretty deep triple marionette line wrinkle. She explained everything to me in detail. She took great care in getting it just right and making sure I was happy.
I have been to Refine Aesthetics twice now, and will continue to come back. Judy is professional and has taken care to ensure I was satisfied with the results both times I stopped in.

Judy does an amazing job, I cannot say enough good things about her and my results. I used to be insecure smiling for photos because my top lip would disappear. She has made my lips look so amazing and NATURAL. Also my genetic 11’s are no where to be found. Judy makes sure I am good and numb and I am always 100% comfortable.
I’ve been seeing Judy for 3 years. She’s very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. I recently had cheek fillers. I was extremely nervous and she guided me through the procedure. Every time I’ve gone, it’s been clean and sterile.
Michelle was fantastic! She went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable during the treatment. She was very thorough and communicative through my consultation. She took her time to explain everything to me and ensured the procedure was done EXACTLY to my liking. The pricing was also really good. 10/10 would recommend.
Judy is the best at Botox! Gives a beautiful and natural, not fake, look. And she’s fun to chat with too! Highly recommend her business.
Judy is exceptional at what she does. She listens to her clients and explains everything well. The office is always very clean and inviting. All the staff are warm and welcoming.
Judy is always on time! I never feel rushed, and I love her attention to detail. The office is beautiful, clean and inviting. It's always a good experience ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐
Judy did a fantastic job using Volbella. I had tiny lines around my mouth, which can be very sensitive to fill. She numbed it so perfectly that I never felt any discomfort. Results look fabulous and very natural. I’ll be going back to see her again.
Judy is awesome! I've been going to her for years and have always received great results and amazing service. Highly recommend.
Judy is the most professional aesthetician I’ve ever met in my entire life. I went to another person just this week and the difference between that person and Judy is night and day. She is incredibly knowledgeable. She is incredibly kind.…
I have been seeing Judy for Botox treatments for about 7-8 years. She’s amazing and trustworthy….keeps my look fresh without ever being overdone.
I’ve been coming here for over a year for Diamond Glow facials and Botox. Super friendly staff and amazing results each time. My facials are so thorough and relaxing!
I’ve been going to refine aesthetics for several years. Judy and Amber are fantastic. My skin looks better than it did 20 years ago. Highly recommend!!!
