Pre-treatment advice

  • We prefer the client to attend appointments make up free to reduce the risk of infection. however, this is not a necessity. The area is fully cleaned and made sterile prior to treatment

  • For optimal results and to minimise the chance of bleeding and bruising at the injection site, avoid all blood thinning medication and supplements one week before the appointment. These include ibuprofen, aspirin, vitamin E, and John warts. Please speak to us before stopping these and consultant your GP. 

  • If you have suffered from cold sores or have an active cold sore please inform us prior to treatment.  

  • Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to treatment to avoid extra bruising. 

  • Take Arnica tablets prior to treatment to minimise bruising risk. These can be found in most supermarkets and health stores. 


Aftercare advice

  • Dermal fillers can take 2 weeks to settle, so we advise you to wait the two weeks to see the final results.  

  • You will experience swelling which tends to get worse over the first 24 hours and then settle after the following 48 hours. You can use a cold compress to reduce the swelling by applying this for 15 minutes each hour. To reduce the risk of swelling you can also sleep face up and slightly elevated.  

  • You also may bruise after this treatment, this is why we advise taking arnica tablets. 

  • No strenuous exercise for 24 hours post-treatment. 

  • We advise no sunbeds, steam room and swimming pools post treatment for 72 hours

  • Post treatment we advise no touching the area, applying make up or products for 12 hours unless advised to. This is to reduce the risk of infection. 

  • No alcohol or smoking for 24 hours. 

  • Wait at least 2 weeks before having any facial or laser treatments.
