After your treatment:

  • Avoid sun exposure and use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen  to prevent further sun damage
  • Bruising, redness and swelling are common and resolve with time
  • A “bug bite look” is common and usually resolves in 1-2 days
  • Avoid heat – hot tubs, saunas, etc. for 1-2 days
  • Avoid skin irritants (examples below) a few days post-treatment
  • Products containing tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents, etc.

Leg vein treatments only:

  • Compression stockings (20-30 mm/hg) are optional
  • Avoid high impact activity 3-5 days
  • Hemosiderin staining (brown staining) may occur after a treatment and usually resolves with time (can take 1-2 years) but, on a rare occasion, it may be permanent
