GF1 Aftercare was specifically developed to boost the skin’s ability to Repair itself after aesthetic and dermatologic procedures, speeding up the recovery time of the skin after having an elective procedure. GF1 not only prepares and disinfects the skin before a skin treatment, but can be used after a session of micro-needling, laser treatments, dermabrasion, acid-induced skin peels and waxing to ensure organised collagen formation without infection, inflammation or swelling. The result: skin is supported to Repair and heal far more quickly post-treatment. Whether you are a dermatologist, aesthetician, skincare therapist, or someone who is committed to a regular aesthetic regime, our GF1 Aftercare works to help fight infection, treat excess inflammatory responses and speed up the recovery process.

Benefits

The primary benefits of GF1 Aftercare when used pre-treatment, or as an aftercare product to support the skin, include:

  • A strong non-cytotoxic (not toxic to cells) antiseptic action against all pathogens without damaging the skin’s microbiome.
  • A reduction in inflammation, which means less redness, pain and minimal downtime.
  • 60% to 70% faster healing when using GF1 as directed.
  • Much lower risk of Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) especially in darker skin types.

GF1 Aftercare is more concentrated than our GF2 Skin Rejuvenation range. It has been formulated with the specific intention of optimally supporting the skin after a treatment, while also effectively preparing the skin before the treatment starts.

When used for post-treatment aftercare, GF1 Aftercare assists in preventing a number of potential complications. Potential treatment complications that can result from a procedure like a chemical peel, micro-needling, laser, dermabrasion or waxing, include:

  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Discolouration
  • Koebnerization (a form of psoriasis)
  • Rashes and delayed healing due to inflammation
  • Prolonged redness of the skin

Description

Pre-treatment

Spray GF1 onto clean skin before any skin treatment begins. This ensures that any pathogens on the face are eliminated before the treatment.

  • Wash your face with liquid skin cleanser and gently pat dry with a clean towel.
  • Holding the bottle approximately 15cm from your face spritz GF1 onto the face, neck and around the eyes until the skin is moist. Any pathogens on the skin will be killed on contact.
  • The treatment can now begin (skin does not have to dry).

Post-treatment

Once your skin treatment or procedure is finished follow these guidelines to speed up the healing process, prevent infection and reduce inflammation:

  • Apply GF1 IMMEDIATELY after your treatment to a clean face (please wash any other lotions or product used during the treatment off first). A slight stinging or a feeling of tightness may occur for the first day of use.
  • Allow the skin to dry naturally (do not wipe off). We do not recommend accelerating this natural drying process with a fan or hair-dryer as GF1 Aftercare’s key component, the hypochlorous acid (HOCl) molecule, is active when the skin is damp. Allowing GF1 to evaporate naturally means optimal contact time with the skin, and the active ingredient (HOCl) has time to be completely absorbed by the skin.
  • Continue to re-apply by spraying GF1 Aftercare to the face or the area treated once every 30 minutes for the rest of the day of treatment.
  • If your skin is still red the day after the treatment, keep applying GF1 Aftercare once every hour to the affected area until the skin is no longer red.
  • At this point, your skin will have recovered and healed from the treatment. You can now switch back to your regular routine of GF2 morning and evening.
  • Your GF1 Aftercare should be used again before your next procedure or treatment in the same way.

Note: GF1 Aftercare will not harm your eyes and is safe if you accidentally swallow some.

Precautionary Note

  • DO NOT MIX GF1 Aftercare into or with any other product. Always apply GF1 onto a clean dry face, and allow it to dry completely on the skin.
  • For optimal results during the post-treatment healing phase we recommend suspending the use of other products until the skin is healed. This helps to reduce the number of ingredients on the skin whilst it is in a healing phase, and minimise any potential reactions or complications.

    GF1 has become our go to product for almost everything; burns, cuts and bruises. So I am an Optometrist and I developed conjunctivitis, I used GF1 and WOW, the fastest recovery ever. I now advice my patients to use. A friend got burnt with boiling water, she was in so much pain, we put some GF1 and in no time it stopped the burning feeling. after using a few times she never blistered or anything after. An amazing product. I now order in bulk.

    GF1 is amazing to use after micro-needling and peels to reduce redness and to speed up recovery time! I can definitely recommend the use of GF1 before and after any skin treatments. It is an absolute lifesaver!

      Thanks for your comment Maurizia – do you perhaps mean a needling treatment?
