The process of brushing acid
❶ Communicate with your doctor before surgery. After examining and assessing the condition of the face, wash off facial oils and flakes with icy salt water. Then apply petroleum jelly to the inner and outer corners of the eyes, the corners of the mouth, and the depressions on the sides of the nose. Avoid irritation caused by causal skin buildup. Meanwhile, keep a small fan in hand to make your treatment more comfortable.
❷ Eye protection is required during use. The doctor will generally adjust the time according to factors such as the concentration of the peeling solution and the end-point reaction of the skin, and it will end in about 8 minutes.
❸ Ice compresses with gauze to relieve symptoms of itching, burning, and redness that may occur after surgery. Don’t panic if you get pimples after brushing the acid, this is normal.
