After Procedure Pointers

 

Following your treatment you may experience:

  • Reddening, swelling and sensitivity of the skin in the area for up to 48 hours

  • The treated area and surrounding skin may feel hot for up to 48 hours.

  • Pin dot crusting in the area that has been treated or small scabs may appear.

  • The skin may itch as the healing process takes place. Apply a light covering of neosporin if the itching becomes unbearable. But remember the area best heals when not occluded.

  • Everyone heals differently and the process can take up to 14 days, but generally happens sooner

Following treatment, ensure that you adhere to the client aftercare advice to avoid unwanted reactions or infections:

Pin dot crusts or scabs may appear to seal the skin and prevent infection. These must not be rubbed or picked off, as to do so may result in scarring. The crusts or scabs may be indistinguishable and “felt” rather than “seen”.

Do not touch, rub or irritate the treated area. When washing and cleansing, use a gentle soap or perfume free cleanser and gently pat the area dry to avoid dislodging any crusts, scabs or the treated Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra.

  • Avoid activities for 48 hours that stimulate blood flow following this treatment e.g. exercise, hot showers, hot baths, hot spicy foods and alcohol.

  • Avoid activities for 48 hours that may irritate or dislodge any crusting, minor scabbing or the treated Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra e.g. swimming, saunas, steam rooms, facial steaming, exfoliating, enzyme exfoliation, waxing and other skincare treatments until the area has completely healed.

  • Protect the treated areas by using  SPF 30 or better. Treated Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra can create hyperpigmentation.

  • Avoid the possible friction on the treated areas such as wearing tight fitting glasses, squeezing spots, careless or erratic tweezing or blowing the nose too vigorously.

  • Avoid using any possible skin sensitizers or irritants such as perfumes, perfumed body lotions or deodorants.

Daily Skincare Regimen STEPS:

Step 1 - Double Cleanse
