What To Do After The Treatment?

A great ‘thing` about our treatments is that they have minimal downtime.

So whether you had Botox injection, dermal filler for wrinkles, a lip filler, a cheek filler, a nose filler, or any other treatment, you should normally be able to stroll out of our clinic and continue your life as normal.

Also, there will normally be no or very few side-effects. That said, some people do experience either:

  • Light swelling
  • Bruising, or
  • Redness 

The good news is that these side effects are temporary, and are normally completely gone within 48 hours.

That said, there are a few actions you should try to avoid in the time after the treatment, in order to ensure that you get the desired result. 

We advise that you do not take painkillers, blood-thinning medications, and alcohol for about 2 days after the treatment.

The reason for this?

All of these are blood thinning, therefore they can potentially increase bruising where the injections were made, and they may make the treatments less effective.

Should you be uncertain about whether a medications is OK or not, just ask us. 👍

We recommend that you do not touch the areas where the injections were made for 2 days. And in addition, we ask you to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for about a week.

You should also not do any facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasions, etc. for about a week.

The reason is tha you don’t want to apply much pressure to the injection areas early on, because this can cause the injections to move to areas where it was not intended.

You can exercise lightly immediately after the treatment, but you should not do any strenuous physical activity for about 2 days. This can also potentially shift the materials that were injected to areas where it should not be.

Also, we recommend that you don’t wear caps or tight hats, if this applies pressure to the treated area. This could also potentially move the injected material.

A few more things:

We advise that you don’t scuba-dive or fly the next 2 after your treatment. This is because changes in air pressure can potentially move the injections.

And also regarding scuba diving, if you put on a scuba-diving mask where you had an injection, this can also shift the injection.

And lastly, we also recommend that you are cautious with strong direct sun exposure and high heat (sauna, very hot showers, etc.) for 2 days after the treatment. 

These factors can potentially make the treatment less effective.

In the event you may notice any side effects or concerns from the treatments, please call us as soon as you can.

Other than thia, you can continue your normal life as you otherwise would. 👍
