GF1 Aftercare can be used after skin manipulations like laser treatment, dermabrasion, acid-induced skin peels and waxing. It disinfects the skin before treatment and supports it to heal quickly afterwards.

Benefits of the Thoclor GF1

Benefits of GF1The primary benefits of GF1 when used pre-treatment, or as an aftercare product to support the skin after manipulation are:

  • A strong non-cytotoxic 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 in darker skin types.

Treatment complications from a chemical peel, micro-needling, laser, dermabrasion or waxing can include:

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

GF1 will assist in preventing all these complications.

Directions & Recommendations of the GF1

Apply GF1 before any skin treatment begins. This will ensure all the pathogens that might be present on the face will be destroyed before the treatment.

  • Wash your face with a liquid skin cleanser and gently pat dry with a clean towel.
  • Holding the bottle approximately 15cm from your face spray GF1 on the face, neck and around the eyes until the skin is moist.
  • Continue with the treatment as normal (the skin does not have to dry when GF1 is used to disinfect the skin before treatment; pathogens are destroyed on contact).

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

  • Apply GF1 again IMMEDIATELY after the treatment to a clean, dry face.
  • Allow the skin to dry naturally (do not wipe off). We don’t recommend accelerating this drying with a hair-dryer or fan as the molecule is active when the skin is damp, so allowing this to evaporate naturally means you get the optimal contact with the skin and the active ingredient has time to be absorbed completely.
  • Apply once every 30 minutes for the rest of the day of your treatment.
  • If your skin is still red the day after your treatment apply GF1 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.
  • Switch back to your regular routine of GF2 morning and evening.
  • Your GF1 should be used again before your next skin manipulation treatment on the same basis.

Thoclor’s GF1 will not harm your eyes and is safe if accidentally swallowed.

Caution of the GF1:

DO NOT MIX with other products. Always apply GF1 to a clean, dry face. We recommend that you don’t use any other cosmetic products whilst the skin is healing post-treatment. Once your skin has recovered you can resume your regular skin routine.
