Aftercare Advice for Skin Blemish Removal

Updated: May 3

Advanced electrolysis is a precise and effective method for removing unwanted skin blemishes or vascular irregularities such as skin tags, milia, spider veins, warts, sebaceous hyperplasia, cherry angiomas, and age spots. After undergoing an advanced electrolysis treatment, proper aftercare is essential to ensure your skin heals well and minimize any potential side effects. Here is the essential aftercare advice to follow post-advanced blemish removal treatment with advanced electrolysis:

Keep the Area Clean

Gently clean the treated area with a mild non-foaming cleanser and lukewarm water. Avoid harsh or scented cleansers, as they can irritate the skin. Use a soft cloth or your fingertips and pat the area dry; do not rub.

Avoid Skincare Products with Active Ingredients

Refrain from using skincare products with actives such as AHA, BHA, and Retinol on the treated area for at least 72 hours to prevent further skin irritation.

Cool Compress

If you experience mild redness or swelling, applying a cool compress for short periods (around 15 minutes) can help soothe the skin. Ensure the compress is clean and gently pat the area afterward.

Avoid Sun Exposure

Protect the treated area from direct sunlight for at least two weeks post-treatment. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 50 daily. Reapply if needed. Sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation and slow down the healing process.

Avoid Hot Baths and Showers

Hot water, such as hot baths and showers, can irritate the treated area. Stick to lukewarm or cool water to avoid exacerbating any redness or discomfort.

Avoid Swimming

Stay away from swimming pools, hot tubs, and other bodies of water for a few days after the procedure to prevent infection.

Avoid Scratching or Picking

It's essential to resist the urge to scratch or pick at the treated area, as this can lead to infection, scarring, or complications. Let any scabs or crusting fall off naturally.

Moisturize Gently

After the initial healing period, you can use a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated. Consult your provider for recommendations on suitable products.

Loose Clothing

Wear loose-fitting clothing over the treated area to prevent irritation and friction. Avoid tight or abrasive fabrics.

Avoid Perfumes and Fragrances

Stay away from perfumes, scented lotions, or any products with strong fragrances as they may irritate the treated area.

Proper hydration and a balanced diet with essential vitamins and minerals support the healing process.

Follow-up Appointments

Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your skin care specialist. They will monitor your progress and address any concerns or questions you may have.

Be Patient

The healing process may take time, and it's normal to experience some redness, swelling, or scabbing, which will gradually subside. Results vary based on the modality of treatment and the individual's skin.
