Botox and Skincare Post Halo
You may resume your regular skin care routine, including Retinol, about two weeks after your Halo treatment. This however is on a per patient basis. All skin is different. Some patient’s skin may still be too sensitive even at 2 weeks to start back on retinoid. Your provider should be able to suggest the proper skincare routine at your follow up visit.
Hope you found this answer helpful. All the best!

Thank you for your question. You can resume your regular skin care routine, including your tretinoin, as soon as two weeks after your Halo treatment. We advise patients on a case by case basis, as some patients are still too sensitive at the two week mark to start back on retinoids. Your provider should be able to advise you at your follow up appointment. We also recommend waiting two weeks for Botox as well. I hope this helps!

Tretinoin after Halo
Around 2 weeks is a good time to go back to Tretinoin. Some patients feel like their skin feels sensitive right after the laser so it's up to the patient when you feel like you're ready to restart your Retin A routine.
