Bear in mind that the sloughing period falls within one week of the treatment on average but may last for up to 10 days. Most people will want to avoid big events during this time period. Additionally, it is important to avoid excessive, direct sun exposure for at least 2 weeks after the treatment as the skin will be especially vulnerable during this period. It is typically recommended to undergo a Clear + Brilliant treatment at least two weeks prior to an event or vacation, and ideally 3 – 4 weeks beforehand.
