Before your treatment avoid medication like aspirin, ibuprofen, and St. John’s wort and alcohol in the days leading up to your treatment. Smoking is discouraged before and immediately after treatment. Eat and replenish fluids prior to treatment. Adhering to preparatory advice can help to prevent swelling, bruising and bumps. It is essential you inform your practitioner, about any medical conditions, current medications and allergies or sensitivities.
Avoid strenuous activity, sunbeds, blood thinners and alcohol for at least 24 hours post-treatment. It is imperative to maintain maximum hygiene around the treated site, including clean toothbrush and pillowcases. We typically advise applying new and clean makeup after 24 hours. You should notice the effects of Juvéderm or other fillers right away, but optimum results are seen after the swelling reduces. Results typically last around one year.
