Where to apply your Software formula
Start with using 1-2 pumps of formula and apply it in on your face to the cheeks, forehead and chin, spreading the formula evenly across these areas. See the diagram below for reference.
Avoid applying your formula around the eye area, the mouth and creases of your nose. The skin in these areas is more sensitive and so is more likely to be susceptible to side effects such as irritation.
How often to apply your Software formula
It can take some time for your skin to adjust to your treatment. Our Software medical team recommends the below as a general guide on how often to apply your formula:
Weeks 1-2: Apply formula twice a week (every 3-4 days)
Week 3-4: If your skin is adjusting well* apply treatment 3-4 times a week
Week 5-6: If your skin is adjusting well* apply treatment 5 times a week
*We recommend listening to your skin and only increasing the frequency of the formula if your skin is doing well and you aren’t experiencing troublesome side effects. Every skin is different and it’s OK to take things slowly if you need to.
