After receiving your anti wrinkle treatment, the actions you take in the hours and days following your appointment can notably influence the outcome. To optimize results and minimize potential side effects, Serenity Cosmetic Clinic provides a set of recommended practices and precautions post-treatment.
Refrain from touching or rubbing the treated area until the following morning. Stay clear of facial treatments, laser procedures, or massages for a week to minimize potential complications. It’s advisable not to lie down for the next 4-6 hours to prevent unintentional rubbing of the treated areas. Similarly, avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours post-treatment for the same reason. Stay away from heat treatments like saunas, hot tubs, or tanning for up to 48 hours. In case of headaches or pain, consider using paracetamol, but avoid medications like ibuprofen (Nurofen) or diclofenac (Voltaren) for the next 24 hours. While there’s a slight risk of bruising, it is usually temporary and minor, easily concealable with makeup. Arnica tablets and hirudoid cream can assist in reducing bruising. The effects of your treatment will become noticeable between 4-14 days. If, after 2 weeks, you observe more muscle movement than expected, adjustments can be made during your follow-up injection assessment, incurring an additional cost. Ensure this follow-up appointment is scheduled within 1 month of the initial treatment.
