Post-Smoothbeam® Instructions

  1. The treated area may be slightly red, with mild soreness like a sunburn for a few hours to two days. These symptoms, if they occur, can be relieved using cold compresses and Tylenol. If a large facial area has been treated, you may experience swelling. If this occurs, keep your head elevated, and prop it up on several pillows at night.
  2. Make-up may be applied very gently starting the day after treatment. Use equal care in removing the make-up to avoid trauma to the skin.
  3. Cleanse the treated area gently with a mild cleanser (such as Cetaphil), and apply a mild moisturizer. Vaseline jelly or Aquaphor ointment once or twice a day to any crusted or peeling areas. Call to inform the office about any crusting or scabbing right away. Use moisturizer with sunscreen when going outdoors. Do not, under any circumstances, pick or rub the treated areas even if a scab forms (which is very rare).
  4. Strictly avoid sun exposure for at least a month after treatment to minimize the risk of dark discoloration in the treated skin. Use sunscreen of spf 30 or higher, preferably containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide daily, and a hat during sun exposure.
  5. Call our office right away if you are experiencing any crusting, scabbing, worsening redness or pain.
