You’ve just undergone your hyfrecator treatment to rid your skin of unsightly concerns like skin tags, cherry angiomas, fibromas, seborrheic keratosis, and sebaceous hyperplasia. As with many cosmetic procedures and treatments, the biggest question that’s asked tends to be: “What now?” And while so many people tend to think the worst when it comes to cosmetic treatment recoveries, the real truth is that the recovery is not nearly worth the worry. The same can be said for a hyfrecator treatment. With that said, this blog will help you understand what to expect after your treatment, including recovery, results, and the potential need for future treatments.
Immediately after your hyfrecator treatment you may experience redness and soreness at the treatment site. This discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and should dissipate quickly. One of the many benefits of this cosmetic procedure is that it is minimally invasive with little-to-no downtime, so you should be able to resume your normal, daily activities without missing a beat.
As far as aftercare goes, it is important that you do not pick at or rub the treatment area during the healing process. This may be easier said than done, though, since many patients experience some slight irritation at the treatment sites. In addition to keeping your fingers away from the treatment area, applying vaseline to the site can be beneficial, as vaseline can help the area heal faster by keeping it moisturized. Your wounds should heal completely within two weeks.
After a few weeks, you will have a follow-up appointment. At this appointment, one of our skincare professionals will check on the wounds and answer any questions that you may have regarding the recovery and results.
As mentioned above, your hyfrecator treatment should heal within about two weeks. Once healed completely, your results should be long lasting. The success of a single treatment is often dependent on the severity of the skin concern. Because of this, some patients only need one treatment session to achieve optimal results while others may require additional treatments to remove additional skin concerns.
If any other lesions appear on your skin, then additional hyfrecator appointments may be scheduled. A thorough consultation with our skin specialists will help determine if a hyfrecator treatment is necessary or if one of the other procedures we offer will address the concerns that you are experiencing.
