Treatment Aftercare

Immediately after treatment, there may be a burning sensation. This will usually resolve during the remainder of the day although if it is particularly uncomfortable or persists for a longer period, then an anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen can be taken.

Following treatment, it is normal to have some swelling. Cold compresses may be applied to reduce the swelling.

If the swelling is more severe, an anti-inflammatory medication and/or anti-histamine may help alleviate the swelling.

Crusting will usually develop over the treated area, this will often initially be brown or black on the surface of the skin and flake off over the following days. It normally takes 3 to 5 days to clear but may take over 2 weeks to completely disappear. It is essential to not pick at this crusting as this may lead to infection or scarring.

Occasionally the treated area may become a little weepy, this is part of the normal healing process and will improve with time. However, if it 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 a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Do not use alcohol based cleansers.
