Aftercare after once your treatment has been completed is very important and must be followed immediately after the treatment and in the recovery period.
A complete aftercare sheet and advise will be provided at the end of the treatment, with help and support available via phone & email.
After the treatment you may feel a burning sensation, this will usually disappear during the remainder of the day. If it is particularly uncomfortable or persists then anti-inflammatory medication can be taken.
You may have some swelling after a treatment which is completely normal, especially around the eyes, this mast last for a few days.
Swelling usually only lasts a few days, ice packs or a cold compress can be used to help soothe and reduce swelling. If swelling is more severe an anti-inflammatory or anti-histamine can be used to help alleviate the symptoms.
Crusting will usually develop over the area treated, this will initially be brown or black on the surface of the skin and will flake off over the following days. It may take up to 2 weeks to completely disappear. It is important not to pick at this crusting as this may lead to infection and/or scarring.
Sometimes the treated area may become a little weepy, this is normal and part of the natural heeling process and will improve with time. If however the area starts to become hot or red or if there is any pus present, then please contact the clinic for advice as this may suggest an infection has developed.
It is essential to keep the treatment area clean, dry and protected with broad spectrum sunscreen.
Do not use alcohol based cleansers.
