  • Please be patient, the healing part is a process. Take time to rest, sleep and heal.

  • Oedema (swelling) may also occur. Sleeping on 2 pillows with your head elevated helps.

  • Ice the treated area for at least 10 minutes every hour. Please don’t use ice directly on skin, use a clean towel covering the ice pack.

  • Apply a fine layer of Vaseline ointment (or topical advised by your doctor) to treated areas several times a day if needed to maintain continuous layer on skin for the first 2 days. Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands prior to touching your face. 

  • CLEANING THE SKIN: Until the scabs come off, you may use a gentle cleanser or antibacterial cleanser to cleanse the area. Salt water mix is also a great idea for the cleaning and healing process. 

  • Avoid other creams, ointments or products of any kind on face until the scabs have completely healed.

  • Avoid picking the scabs and over exfoliating, let the scabs heal and come off on their own. 

  • Do not expose your skin to the sun or tanning beds. remember UVA light passes through house and car windows. Use of sunscreen with SPF 50 is crucial to maintain results and help prevent post inflammatory pigmentation (darker areas)

  • Shower as normal.

  • Panadol may be administered if required. 

  • If you experience itching, an over the counter antihistamine may be helpful.

  • A two week review is highly recommended post initial treatment.
