Thermocoagulation Recommended Aftercare
FOR BEST RESULTS KEEP THE SCABS ON AS LONG AS POSSIBLE
Scabs should remain on the skin for an average of 7 to 10 days or longer.
KEEP SCABS AWAY FROM WATER
Water will make the scabs soft and mushy and peel off too soon.
Wash your face with a damp face cloth avoiding the scabs.
After treating full back or stomach areas, bathing rather than showering may be best. Washing hair in the sink is an option until the skin heals and scabs fall off.
Sleep in fresh clean sheets and pillowcase. Do not pick or scratch the scabs. Wash hands thoroughly before applying aftercare.
Apply Rejuvenqe Oil, cold-pressed coconut oil, repair balm or ointment 2 to 3 times daily. This will help nourish the area for faster repair, healthy cell renewal and optimal results. As well, prevent the scabs from drying out too fast and remain on the skin longer to protect and encourage healing.
Nourishing serums and fragrance-free moisturizers may also be applied over the oil. No retinol A or AHA exfoliating products on treated areas for 30 days.
When treating areas on the body, wear loose clothing for the following week until the scabs fall off. Women may need to go braless and wear a loose dress. Choose older clothing as the coconut oil may stain the material.
Do not wear makeup or apply sunscreen until the scabs fall off. Wear a hat to protect treated areas on the face from direct sunlight.
Keep your body hydrated and drink plenty of water. Refrain from drinking alcohol for 5 days after having a spider vein treatment. Alcohol causes inflammation which may cause the cauterized veins to reopen.
If any scabs should appear red or irritated and you are concerned, please take a photo and send to me for assessment.
If needed, follow-up treatments may be performed after 4 weeks on the face and neck and after 6 weeks on the body.
