Fibroblast Treatment Aftercare
DO NOT SCRATCH OR PICK!!!
Fibroblast Treatment What to Expect:
- Patient will experience a mild burning sensation immediately following any Fibroblast Lift treatment procedure. This is similar to sunburn which should resolve within a few hours. However, this depends upon your sensitivity tolerance and this discomfort may last longer. If you fell particularly uncomfortable, anti-inflammatories such as (Advil or Anti-Histamines) such as Benadryl is suggested. It is up to the individual to decide on self-medication.
- As a natural healing response, it is usual for the treated area to become swollen, especially around the more delicate area such as the eyes.
- Ice packs not only soothes but also helps the swelling. Recovery can vary depending on your natural rate of recovery. Most people find it only a few days.
- In extreme cases (specifically if clients do not follow aftercare guidlines) the swelling can last several days longer and may interfere with vision if the treatment was performed in the eye area.
- Initially after treatment and up to 3 days later, there may be occasional weeping. This is the natural healing response to the Fibroblast Lift procedure.
Fibroblast Treatment Healing:
- Wash face with a mild cleanser like dove soap twice a day and apply healing ointment. Do this till the scabs are off usually takes 1 week or so.
- As the treated area begins to heal , you will notice the drying out process whereby a brown/black crust develops on the surface of the skin. This will flake off after a few days but in some cases can take up to 10 days.
- DO NOT PICK !!!! – The crusting as it can lead to infection or scarring. It is important to keep this area clean.
- It is strongly advised that you use sunscreen SPF 30-50 sunscreen (throughout the year including the colder months) to avoid sunburn, as the area’s sensitivity to sunlight will be heightened for up to 3-4 months post Fibroblast Lift procedure.
- Boiled lukewarm water is best for cleaning the treated area.
- DO NOT use alcohol based cleansers as this will slow down the healing process.
- If at any time the treated area (s) become too hot, red or show signs of pus, please contact us or your doctor for advise as you may be developing an infection.
- It is important that these crust are not removed (never scratch, otherwise a scar will remain). Instead twice daily in the morning and in the evening, carefully clean the areas, then disinfect it with distilled water spray and gently dab with a clean, lint-free cloth. Then apply apply provided ointment twice daily.
- After the independent peeling of the scab crusts (typically the 5-8 days), pink/red skin forms.
- Swimming and Sauna are only permitted 3 weeks after procedure and once all the crusts have fallen off the skin surface and is completely healed and closed.
- Smokers may experience a significant worsening of the blood flow, which increases the risk of wound healing and/or slowed healing.
- Note that after the crusts are lost a slight redness may remain in the following area treated in the weeks or months. It takes 4-6 weeks (sometimes longer) until the skin has reached it’s normal color again.
- Follow up treatment will not be before 8 weeks from the first treatment date.
