Should certain precautions be taken after the treatment?
Immediately following treatment, some patients find the application of an ice pack to be soothing to the treated area. Some patients may require the application of a topical antibiotic cream or ointment. In addition, care should be taken in the first few days following treatment to avoid abrasive skin cleansers and not scrubbing in the area should take place. A bandage or patch may be helpful in preventing abrasion of the treated area.
