- Wound care: Let soapy water wash over the incision site (do not scrub) then apply antibiotic ointment (Bacitacin) to the incision points twice daily for one week while the skin is healing after the initially removing the pressure garment. Tiny scabs may appear during the healing process. Please do not do pick at the scabs.
- Cleanse the treatment areas gently with mild soap such as Cetaphil or Cerave and water after 48 hours. Avoid drying or irritating facial products including Retinoal and acids (Salicylic or Glycolic) for 3 weeks after the procedure. Do not rub or irritate the area.
- Although these effects are rare and temporary, redness and swelling may last up to 3 weeks and are a part of a normal reaction. Bruises occur in for some people and last 1 to 2 weeks and are a normal reaction to the treatment. Some patients report burning sensation, tingling or a tightening sensation in the treatment area for up to 3 months.
- Limit physical activity and exposure to excessive heat (including fires) and UV light for 2 weeks.
- For facial and neck procedures: Sleep on serval pillows or in s recliner to keep your head elevated for at least two to three days to help minimize swelling. Minimize talking and chewing for 48 hours. We recommend following a soft diet for the first 48 hours.
- Makeup may be applied as soon as 72 hours after the procedure to cover any redness or bruising. Aviod the incision points that may be healing.
- If treatment was done on the face or neck, facial shaving should only be done with an electric razor for the first week.
- Burns and changes in pigmentation are rare although may occur. If you notice small white bumps, that may take a few weeks to resolve.
- Only take prescribed pain medication or Tylenol for pain relief (not both) after you procedure, unless instructed otherwise. Other pain relievers such as Aspirin or NSAIDS (ie, Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aleve, etc.) can thin the blood and cause bleeding or bruising. The only exception to this rule is if your primary care doctor has prescribed you to take a daily Aspirin, NSAID, or other blood thinner.
- Do not drink alcohol for several days as instructed by the doctor after procedure. Drinking alcohol can negatively affect healing and can cause thinning of the blood, bleeding, crusting and/or bruising.
- Remember, although the skin has initially healed, it takes 3-6 months before any changes in skin tightening can be perceived and twelve months before final results in skin tightening can be appreciated.
