Pre-PDT InstructionsKrauss Dermatology2019-04-22T18:50:36-04:00
- It is imperative to protect the treated skin from the sun for a full 4 weeks prior to PDT. This is best accomplished by the use of SPF 30 sunscreen daily (containing zinc oxide) and a hat worn during times of greater exposure to the sun’s rays. Any tan or “color” from the sun can increase the chance of discoloration. Artificial tanners should be stopped 3 weeks before treatment.
- Wash your face well just prior to your appointment to remove any make-up or creams.
- Come to the office with a hat as you will need to protect your skin diligently for the 48 hours post procedure.
- Let us know if you frequently get cold sores on the lip so we may prescribe medication to prevent a flare after the procedure.
