Pearl Laser Post Care Instructions

  • Apply plain Vaseline to treated areas 3-4 times a day or more if needed to maintain a continuous layer on your skin for the first 3-4 days. Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands prior to touching your face.
  • Do not put ANY other creams, ointments or products of any kind on your face until you are told it is ok to do so.
  • Do not pick, rub, scrub or irritate your skin in any way while healing.
  • You can leave the Vaseline ointment on and soak the treated area with a clean soft cloth and the following solution: 1 teaspoon of plain white vinegar to 2 cups of water. This solution may be mixed up ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator.
  • Washing at least twice daily with a mild non-soap cleanser such as Cetaphil can be done in place of soaks.
  • Apply a layer of Vaseline ointment to the treated area immediately after soaking. If the skin gets dry or scabbed you need to soak more often.
  • Skin may be red for the first 3-7 days or longer and then turn darker as the skin begins to slough (peel).
  • Edema. (swelling) may also occur. Sleeping on 2 pillows with your head elevated is helpful.
  • The skin will usually start sloughing on day 3 or 4. Do not pick at it but allow .skin to slough off on its’ own.
  • It is OK to shower but do not let the shampoo or hair products get on the face. Do a soak after the shower followed by Vaseline.
  • It is normal for skin to feel “sunburned” and/or tight.
  • Ibuprofen or acetaminophen may be used if needed.
