We generally advise our patients to elevate their arms for 5 days however this would depend on the degree of swelling. We also instruct our patients to avoid lifting or bearing any weight on your arms for several days to weeks. You must stay out of the sun until the healing process is fully completed or skin in the treated area may develop irregular pigmentation and scars may become raised, red or dark.
