BEFORE

  • 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).

 

AFTER

  • 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.
  • Please contact the clinic if you have any queries at all by emailing hello@theglowclinic.ie.
