FAUX FRECKLES AFTERCARE

Since the skin on the nose area is very thin, some tenderness/discomfort is to be expected. Some swelling/redness may occur during/after the procedure.

Day of the procedure: The Faux Freckles may appear dark right after the procedure. Don't worry, as the freckles will fade into a natural and sun-kissed look. Some redness may be present, but this will subside over the next few days. 

  • After the procedure, make sure to blot any excess lymph fluid (clear-looking liquid) with a clean gauze/paper towel. 

  • Gently wash the treated area 2-3 hours after the procedure with a gentle cleanser. Pat your face dry with a clean paper towel and allow it to air dry for a few minutes. After your face is dry, gently apply a very thin layer of ointment over the treated area(s) with clean fingers or a clean cotton swab.

Day 2-3: The Faux Freckles may appear darker and more bold than the day of the procedure. This is normal! Be sure to keep the treated area dry during this time. Your skin may have started forming small scabs at this point.

  • Gently wash the treated area twice a day (morning and night) with a gentle, unscented facial cleanser. Pat your face dry with a clean paper towel and allow to air dry for a few minutes. After your face is dry, gently apply a very thin layer of ointment over the treated area(s) with clean fingers or a clean cotton swab.

Day 4-7: Most of the redness/tenderness should have subsided by this point. Your small scabs will be starting to flake off. Your face may also feel itchy, but do not scratch or itch the treated area! Be sure to keep the treated area dry during this time.

Day 8-14: You may resume washing your face, but stay clear of harsh scrubbing/exfoliants in the treated area. It may appear as if the freckles have dramatically faded/disappeared, but this is normal. During this time, the skin will have an opaque/"milky" look to it.

Day 15+: Your Faux Freckles should have almost fully healed by this point. Be sure to wear sunscreen after the freckles have healed, as this will prevent excess fading of the freckles. 

If you are able to, it is best to avoid wearing glasses/sunglasses for a few days, as they may rub against the Faux Freckles. This could cause irritation and a possible infection.

*Please note that everyone's healing process will be different as everyone heals differently. Some individuals may scab more than average, while others may experience barely any scabbing. Age, skin type, health, diet, sun exposure, pre-existing conditions, etc. all play into how long it will take you to, personally, heal. Some individuals may heal quicker than anticipated, while others take longer than average.
