As with any medical grade treatment, bruising can happen. Here are some hints and tips to avoid potential bruising:
Stay hydrated. Drink lots of water during the 48 hours before your appointment.
Try to stay away from alcoholic beverages for a couple days before your treatment. (Yes, that also means wine…sorry ladies!)
Ideally, you should avoid taking Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Vitamin E and fish oil for approximately 10 days prior to treatment.
Your comfort during your appointment is our number one priority! Please don’t be shy. Let your provider know if there is anything we can do to make you more comfortable.
If you received an injectable treatment, make sure you have ice at home. You’ll want to keep the ice on the area of treatment throughout the next few hours in intervals of 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. This will help lessen any potential swelling.
If you received a microneedling or laser treatment, make sure to use the skin care products we recommend over the next few days.
