Advice following treatment:

  1. Try not to get too hot for 48 hours
    • Avoid saunas, steam rooms, sunbeds, extreme hot weather, alcohol, strenuous exercise
    • This is to avoid the risk of increased swelling and bruising
  2. Try not to touch the treated areas for at least 2 hours
    • Ideally avoid touching it for 6 hours
    • This will help to avoid infection
  3. Avoid makeup/spray tan for 6 hours
    • This will help to avoid infection
  4. What to do in case of swelling/bruising
    • Apply a cold towel to the treated areas to soothe discomfort and/or swelling

When Will I See Results?

Dr Nicole says:

  • Results are usually visible straight away
  • There may be some initial swelling which will settle with time
  • Final results can usually be seen within 2 weeks
