After Care Guide

A list of things to do after your treatments

Botox

To ensure you recover well post botox, please avoid the following…

6 hours

  • touching the injection site/s & applying make up

8 hours

  • Laying flat on your back or lying face down (massages)

24 hours

  • Alcohol

  • exercising and heavy sweating

  • massaging or rubbing the injection sites

  • wearing a helmet or goggles

2 weeks

  • Facials, microdermabrasion or facial massage


Please note: Botox takes 10-14 days to kick in completely. let it settle and work its magic. trust the process.

Dermal Filler

Applies to all dermal filler procedures - lips, cheeks, chin, jawline, tear trough & skinbooster

6 hours

  • touching the injection site/s & applying make up

8 hours

  • lying face down (massages)

24-48 hours

  • Alcohol

  • exercising and heavy sweating

  • massaging or rubbing the injection sites

2 weeks

  • Facials, microdermabrasion or facial massage

  • 4 weeks if you have had tear trough or cheek filler

 

Please note: It is normal to experience pain and discomfort at the injection site/s post injection. Stay hydrated, take paracetamol for pain, arnica to help prevent bruising and apply ice to the area to help reduce swelling.

Filler can take 3-6 weeks to settle completely. It is common to experience some lumps and bumps within the first 2-3 weeks as it takes time for filler to integrate into the tissue. Please do not massage these bumps out yourself - leave it to me, I'll assess you at your follow up appointment.

Laser Hair Removal

First 72 hours

  • avoid hot showers, spa pools or sweating as heat can exacerbate irritation

Have red bumps or the histamine reaction discussed in clinic? don’t stress, take an antihistamine and apply cool compress. this is a normal reaction (about 20% of patients will experience this) and will subside over the next 3-5 days.

2 Weeks

  • STAY OUT OF THE SUN, PLEASE! YOUR BEAUTIFUL SKIN HAS JUST BEEN LASERED WITH HEAT … AND IS NOW SENSITIVE. THE RISK OF HYPO AND HYPERPIGMENTATION INCREASES HUGELY IF YOU GET BURNT.

  • SLIP, SLOP, SLAP AND WRAP. SIMPLE :)

 

4 Qeeks / in between sessions

  • your may experience hair fall over the next 14 -21 days. this is normal and expected! shave in between laser sessions and exfoliate.

  • please do not pluck, epilate or wax the treatment area. just shave, babe.

 

FOR BEST RESULTS, FINISH YOUR COURSE OF TREATMENTS, TRUST THE PROCESS AND ENJOY SMOOTH, HAIR FREE SKIN!
