After Care Instructions
1. Immediately following the procedure, a dressing may be applied to the treated areas. Leave on overnight. It will be removed in the AM and you will begin the
vinegar soaks as instructed below (see #4). If the dressing should come off
sooner, do not replace it, begin vinegar soaks and then apply a layer of
Aquaphor or Vaseline.
2. Post Op pain is usually minimal and can be treated with either Tylenol 1-2 tablets every 4 hours and or moist cold packs to the treated areas. If the doctor gives you a prescription for Vicodin or Tylenol #3 try to save this for bedtime.
4. Vinegar Soak Technique: Lie down with towel under your head with a clean guaze pad or wash cloth, gently soak the treated areas for 10-15 minutes using 1
teaspoon white vinegar in 1 cup of cool tap water. Make sure the gauze or
wash cloth is particularly soaked.
Pat dry and apply an ample coat of
Aquaphor Healing Ointment with Q-Tips or gauze. Repeat 4 times daily or
more often for comfort. If the vinegar soaks stings or burns, dilute with more
water. Prepare a new vinegar solution with each soak to prevent contamination.
5. Shampoo hair daily in shower using Baby Shampoo. 6. Apply sunscreen daily for the following two weeks after the procedure. Prior to this, avoid sun exposure by wearing a wide brimmed hat. Remember to avoid sun exposure to the treated area for 3-6 months. 7. Treated areas may remain pink for up to 12 weeks. Cover make-ups may be used when the area is healed (day 9-10). 8.

If darkening of treated areas occurs after treatment you will be given bleach creams that can be used twice daily/ Decreased pigment will be noted 1-3 months. 9. Take all oral medications as instructed by your physician. 10. Please call if you have any questions or concerns. 1506 E Chapman Ave, Orange CA 92866
