Skinlifting Aftercare

 Skin 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 naproxen or ibuprofen can be taken. 

 

If you have had any procedure work done around the eyes—Following treatment, it is normal to have some swelling. This can be significant around the eyes and can last for several days and may lead to interference with vision in the initial period. 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. It may up a week 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. Do not use alcohol based cleansers.
