- There is a possibility that you may experience dryness and sensitivity with a flushed appearance. This is nothing to worry about . It is the result of the treatment causing an increased sensitivity to vitamin A in your daily skin-care product and should return to normal within a few days.
- If you are prone to developing cold sores, you may experience some after this treatment. I therefore advise that you use a suitable antiherpetic preparation, such as Zovirax, for a week in order to minimise the side effects. Should you develop a cold sore, please treat as you normally would and contact your doctor.
- Please ensure you keep the treated area clean for the first few days after your procedure and follow the aftercare recommended by me to minimise the risk of an infection.
- It is unlikely for you to experience an increase pain, inflammation or redness, or for you to develop white spots that you cannot wash away. If this should happen, please consult me and your GP as soon as possible.
