If you see a “bruise” or “hickey” after using the Pore Cleansing MD System then this indicates that the vacuum/suction setting is too strong, you’ve overworked your skin or your skin is too sensitive. This Tool is not recommended for anyone with sensitive skin, on sensitive areas or active acne. In most cases this should resolve within 1-2 days and can dissipate more quickly if you:
- Make a cold compress by placing crushed ice in a zip lock bag wrapped within a soft cloth and hold this on the area for 3-5 minutes three times an hour.
- Ask a pharmacist or your doctor about using an Over the Counter treatment to localized areas of irritation 1-3 times per day—avoiding the eyes.
Do not use the Pore Cleansing Tool if you have red, sensitive skin or visible red capillaries. Avoid using the Pore Cleansing Tool if you have a bleeding disorder, visible capillaries, active acne, or are on blood thinning medicines because this will greatly increase your chance of causing a bruise or “hickey.”
