Discomfort

Post treatment sensitivity is normal and can last from 2 days to 2 weeks or more depending on your body’s natural ability to heal. This sensitivity is caused by inflammation. We therefore advise the use of anti-inflammatories such as Advil or Motrin.

  • 600mg. every 4-6 hours for the first 48 hours after treatment.
  • 1000mg. Extra Strength Tylenol may be added to this regimen in cases of more severe discomfort.

If you are unable to take NSAIds you may take Tylenol alone but as it does not have anti-inflammatory properties you may experience discomfort caused by inflammation for a longer period of time.

If you are concerned about what you are feeling or are uncertain about anything please contact our office at 781-341-5300 or 508-880-8500.
