I have recently(1 wk) had “age spot removal with dry ice back of hands. The areas are sensitive red feel hot and burning. Should I be concerned and what then? Thankyou
This is unusual for a week post treatment. I would recommend you see the doctor who did it for you to see if there is any infection or complication causing this feeling.
We generally don’t do ‘dry ice’ or cryotherapy to the back of the hands, as we use laser treatments that tend to be more specifically targeted to the brown spots as opposed to cryotherapy which is non-specific treatment.
