Post-treatment InformationKrauss Dermatology2019-02-25T23:00:06-05:00
- 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.
- Sleep with your head elevated on at least 2 and preferably 3 pillows for 1-2 nights.
- Do not scratch, pick or traumatize the area in any way. You may apply your normal moisturizer and sunscreen normally.
- 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.
