Showering after Infini?

I read that for Fraxel, you should not shower for 48 hours after the procedure. How long should you go without showering after an Infini treatment?

I do not ask my patients to avoid showering or bathing post treatment, but exposure to warm or hot water can make any redness or swelling more notable. I advise gentle cleansing of the treated area twice daily with a mild cleanser, as well as applying a post-procedure cream to aid healing and avoid dryness. In our office, we also offer LED light and oxygen treatments to speed healing after Infini treatment.

All ok, with INFINI

All good to shower with INFINI - your specialist will have their own post op instructions. I normally place and anti inflammatory ointment if I am not combining this with PRP. 

All good to shower 12-24 hours after, but be guided by your Specialist as he or she will have their own special set of instructions that work best for your procedure.

We recommend our patients wait until the next morning to shower after an Infini procedure.  This allows ample time for the microchannels to close.  Consult with your provider for their specific post procedure recommendations.

24 hours is safe. After this time, all the pores are sealed enough for showering. We also use oxgenetics makeup several hours after the treatment.

Infini Post Procedure

We usually recommend patients wait to shower after 24 hours. The micro-needling openings will be closed and therefore describe the chance of bacteria getting in. They can wash their face with a non-harsh wash and pat dry. Hope this helps.

Next day would be fine.  All microchannels will have closed by then.  Certainly rinse more than lather.  We encourage our patients after Infini to use an Epionce post laser kit that contains a Milky Lotion Cleanser, Medical Barrier Cream and post laser sunscreen for the first week.

This can safely be done in the morning following your procedure. By that time, all the small channels created by the microneedles will be closed up. It is the same for Fraxel as well.
