Post-treatment Information

Post-Treatment Instructions

  1. You may elect to ice the area post treatment but must do so very carefully. Use an ice pack with the fabric side against the skin, or wrap a soft plastic ice pack in a wet thin towel. Apply the ice pack approximately 15 seconds on, and 15 seconds off. Icing too vigorously can cause frostbite and scarring.
  2. Sleep with your head elevated on at least 2 and preferably 3 pillows for 1-2 nights.
  3. Do not scratch, pick or traumatize the area in any way. You may apply your normal moisturizer and sunscreen normally.
  4. Call the office at 781-416-3500 if you have any difficulty swallowing, crusting or scabbing, asymmetry of your smile or any other unusual symptoms.
