Here are a few simple tips to make sure you get the most out of your treatment, and minimise downtime.
Avoid alcohol, omega 3s, garlic, ginko biloba, salmon and other oily fish to minimise the risk of bleeding and bruising.
Attending your appointment makeup free also reduces the risk of bruising (as removing makeup will stimulate the circulation in the superficial blood vessels and increase the likelihood of a bruise).
Avoid touching your face after your treatment, and if you have had dermal fillers, please avoid makeup for 24 hours. You can purchase Clinisept+ in clinic if you wish (antiseptic that is kind to skin, and what we will use on you in clinic).
Avoid heavy exercise, sweating and heat for 48 hours following your treatment. This includes steam rooms, saunas and excessive sun exposure.
Avoid facial massage or facials for 2 weeks, unless advised otherwise.
Avoid air travel for 72 hours following anti-wrinkle treatment.
You can apply arnica and creams contains bromelain (pineapple extract) to minimise bruising. You can also take supplements that contain these ingredients.
