Stop a few days before C and B
I advice all my patients to stop active products 2-3 days before, however to moisturise your skin +++ leading up to the C and B treatment. Every specialist will have their own pre op care, so contact your Clear and Brilliant specialist for their advice. Dr Davin Lim
Preparing for Clear & Brilliant can be different for some patients.
Preparing for Clear & Brilliant can be different for some patients. It is important that each patient receives a skin consultation with their provider. At that time the provider will give them instructions about a corrective at home regimen to follow before the treatment to help obtain the best results. If a patient is being treated to improve his/her pigmentation, sun damage etc.,they should be on a brightening regimen for 4 weeks pre treatment. It's always important for everyone to prep the skin by using exfoliating products provided by your professional. If a patient is using any active ingredients (ex: Retinol,Retin A ,Alpha/beta hydroxyl Acids) must be stopped 2 weeks before treatment. Avoid direct sun exposure 5-7 days prior to the treatment.
Prep for Clear and Brilliant
Hi septembergirl2016, thank you for your question.
I definitely recommend contracting your treating physician for these details, as every practice generally will have a customized, written set of pre and post care instructions you will follow for your procedure.
Note: Every practice will differ in policy on when to stop a topical irritant before a procedure and when to resume.
For Clear and Brilliant, these products are generally stopped from 72 hours to 1 week prior to laser.
Best of luck,
