What Steps Should Be Taken Post-Treatment?

Clients are asked to follow a post-treatment regimen of topical antibiotic ointment to prevent infection, and to avoid sun exposure or use strong sunblock while outside. An elevated white discoloration with or without blood is sometimes seen immediately following treatment, but disappears within 24 hours. A crust can also form over the treated area, and will slough off within 14 days. Clients are encouraged not to remove the crust.
