Tingling and stinging is relatively common when you first begin using your treatment. It simply means that your skin is reacting to the ingredients in your formula. This tingling and stinging should fade within fifteen minutes or so after applying your treatment, but there are a few things our doctors recommend for you to help lessen it in the meantime:
- Use the ‘Sandwich Technique’: apply a moisturiser 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after applying the Software formula
- Avoid applying your treatment to the areas around nose, eyes and mouth—these areas are more sensitive and prone to irritation
- Use only a small amount of treatment (1–2 pumps) and increase the frequency of application over time
- Apply the Software treatment at night, and wash it off after a few hours
If none of these tips help, please stop using your treatment and get in touch with us. We can arrange another consultation with your doctor.
