After Care

An aftercare sheet will be given to you on your surgery day. You will be required to soak the treated area for 10 minutes, every few hours, using 1 teaspoon of vinegar (white) per 2 cups of water. Aquaphor or Vaseline is to be kept on your face continuously for 6 to 8 days. Any scabs should be gently soaked off. After soaking, pat the skin dry with a towel and apply more ointment over the treated area. Oozing of clear fluids, mild to moderate swelling, and a mild burning sensation may occur. Redness is expected for 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure and will fade gradually over 4 to 12 weeks.
