Skin Boosters Pre-Treatment Instructions:

To reduce the chance of bruising, avoid the following 2 weeks prior to treatment. If any are prescribed by a doctor, then you must consult your doctor prior to avoiding the medication.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Pain Relievers such as Ibuprofen
  • Aspirin – *if you have been prescribed Aspirin, do not discontinue unless you have had authorisation by your GP.
  • Fish Oil
  • Glucosamine
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Vitamin E
  • Exotic or Herbal Supplements
  • Have you ever had a cold sore? If so, please call me prior to your appointment if you have had one in the last 2 weeks as this could affect your treatment and you may need prescribing an anti- viral.

On the day of treatment: It is advisable to drink some water and a little something to eat before arriving. After Treatment: For treatments around the mouth I suggest avoiding eating directly after your treatment – This ensures the product “settles”.

Skin Boosters Post-Treatment Instructions:
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours after treatment
  • No increased blood pressure (i.e. sauna’s, hot tub, exercise) for 4 hours post treatment (Helps prevent bruising)
  • It is recommended that make up not be applied until 1 hour after treatment to allow the skin to breathe
  • Avoid excessive facial expressions and strenuous exercise for 4 hours after your treatment. (This helps the product to “settle” without disturbing the location where it was injected.)
  • Do not rub or massage the area for 24 hours unless instructed to do so – Redness and swelling may last for 1-2 days
  • Avoid Excessive Sun and Heat: Until any initial swelling and redness has resolved
  • Apply Sunscreen: Proper and frequent application of sunscreen is important. The sunscreen should offer broadband protection (UVA and UVB) and have a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or more.
  • There is a risk of bruising which is only temporary and can be covered up with make-up
  • If local anaesthetic has been administered, take extreme caution with HOT foods and drinks until the effect of the anaesthetic has completely worn off.
Skin Boosters Possible Side Effects

The intensity and duration of your side effects depends on the treatment aggressiveness and your individual healing characteristics, but usually can last up to a week after treatment.

  • Redness: Mild redness can be expected for 24hr’s following treatment
    • You may apply Mineral makeup immediately after treatment to minimize the redness.
  • Swelling and bruising: Usually lasts two to three days, although sometimes longer
    • To minimize swelling you can apply cold compresses to the treatment area for 10 minutes every hour.
    • Sleep elevated the first night. Use as many pillows as you can tolerate.
    • Take Arnica tablets which are available over the counter at your local pharmacy or herbal supplement shop.
    • The initial swelling after treatment to the lips may last longer. Some patients experience swelling for up to a week and the lips can look somewhat ‘uneven’ during this time. After the swelling has subsided, you will be able to see the true results.
  • Tenderness/Pain: Mild tenderness can be expected for 24hr’s following treatment
    • You may take an anti-inflammatory Paracetamol if necessary.
