PRE / POST CARE TREATMENTS

Dermal Fillers / Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Pre Treatment Preparation

  • Medications and supplements designed to increase blood flow may increase your risk of bruising, as will alcohol.
  • Do not take blood thinning medications such as Aspirin and Nurofen for 3 – 4 days prior to treatment.
  • Avoid herbal or vitamin supplements for 7 days prior.
Aftercare
  • Maximise facial activity for half an hour after treatment (facial gestures such as frowning, raising your eyebrows and squinting). This will attract the muscle relaxant to the tissue receptors.
  • Do not have facial treatments, rub or massage the treated area for 24 hours after your injectables. You may cleanse gently with cotton wool.
  • Avoid lying face down for 4 hours.
  • Do not undertake strenuous exercise on the day of treatment.
  • Some clients experience a mild headache after anti-wrinkle injections. If this occurs, take Paracetamol as needed, but avoid Aspirin, Nurofen, Ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory medication which could increase the risk of bruising. Medications and supplements designed to increase blood flow may increase your risk of bruising, as will alcohol.
  • Do not take blood thinning medications such as Aspirin and Nurofen for 3 – 4 days prior to treatment.

Laser/IPL Hair Reduction

Pre Treatment Preparation

  • Shave the treatment area within 12 hours of your appointment.
  • We cannot treat you if you have sunburn or any type of tan (including natural, solarium or spray) on the treatment area.
  • Do not wax or pluck the treatment area within 2 weeks of the treatment.
  • Do not use Retinol (topical Vitamin A) or Hydroquinone (whitening creams) within 3 days of treatment.
Aftercare
  • Do not shave for 48 to 72 hours after treatment. Do not pluck, tweeze, thread or wax hair that has been treated today. This will help reduce any chances of a mild infection in the damaged follicle. The hairs will drop out naturally over the following days and weeks. Please note that hair re-growth occurs at different rates on different areas of the body. You can shave between treatments at the clinic.
  • Do not use bleaching creams or perfumed products for 24 to 48 hours, and if possible, avoid waxing as this removes the base of the hair that we are targeting with the laser IPL machine.
  • The area treated may be red, warm and bumpy for up to 24 hours after treatment. If skin is uncomfortable or itchy, you can cool the area with a cold facial towel. Apply the after-care recommended. If you have any concerns, please contact your laser/Pulsed light clinician.
  • Avoid wearing tight clothing. Keep the area clean and dry.
  • Resume use of deodorant/antiperspirants after 24 hours. (if underarms after treated)
