After Care

Anti-Wrinkle After Care

  • Don’t rub the treated area today – no facials, massages or pressure to the treated area

  • Don’t apply make up for 4 hours – although unlikely it can increase the risk of infection

  • Stay upright for 4 hours post treatment and try to sleep on your back the first night

  • No alcohol or exercise for the rest of the day

  • For any pain we'd suggest paracetamol; anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin or ibuprofen are not recommended as they increase your likelihood of bruising

  • Hirudoid or arncia cream can help resolve a bruise

  • Treatments take up to 14 days to take full effect. If after two weeks you have more movement than you would like, a "top up" with extra product injected to the area may be performed, at an additional cost.

Please schedule a follow up appointment if desired after two weeks.
