Post Care Instructions


AVOID sun exposure and tanning beds for 2 weeks

DO NOT take hot showers, use hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms or exercise (or any activities that will cause sweat)

Maintain a cool temperature to your shower or bath water because the skin will be extra sensitive to heat.

DO NOT pick, rub or scratch the area

If your facial area was treated, you may start using makeup again as soon as the skin looks and feels back to normal.

There may be redness or some swelling to the treated area. The skin will be sensitive, similar to sunburn. Therefore, treat the skin gently. Use Aloe Vera or Hydro-cortizone.

Should you experience swelling, redness, or any unusual marks in the treated area after 72 hours, please call the office to see the doctor immediately.


Ice following your treatment for the next 48 hours.

Avoid additional treatment in the related area for the next 2 weeks.

Avoid sleeping on the injection site for the first 2 nights.
