What kind of post care is needed after my Votiva Fractora treatment?
Patients should heavily moisturize the treatment area with vaseline and avoid direct sun exposure for 48 hours. We also recommend that patients use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process. You can apply makeup 2 days after the treatment. Chemical peels work extremely well in addition to Fractora. In some cases, chemical peels are even done the same day after your treatment to further enhance results.
