Post-Treatment Botox

  • Do NOT manipulate the treated area for 3 hours following treatment. Do NOT receive faciallaser treatments or microdermabrasion after Botox injections for at least 10 days. Ask your provider if you are not sure about the time frame of certain services.

  • Some providers believe that smiling and frowning right after Botox treatments helps the Botox find its way to the muscle into which it was injected after treated.

  • Do NOT lie down for 4 hours after your Botox treatment. This will prevent the Botox from tracking into the orbit of your eye and causing drooping eyelid.

  • It can take approximately 4 to 7 days for results to be seen. If the desired result is not seen after 2 weeks of your treatment you may need additional Botox. You are charged for the amount of product used. Therefore, you will be charged for a product used during any touch-up or subsequent appointments.

  • Do NOT perform activities involving straining, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercise for 6 hours after treatment. This will keep the Botox in the injected area and not elsewhere.

                                         POST CARE SKIN REJUVINATION

 

 

Up to a Month After Treatment

After and between treatments, it’s essential to apply a generous amount of sunscreen to the area being treated each day. Not just once, but three or four times. The skin will feel sensitive to UV radiation for several days after treatment, so it’s important to not just wear sunscreen that first week but to also avoid being outdoors for long periods of time and to cover the area with a scarf or hat. After a few days, the skin will no longer feel sensitive to sunlight, but it’s still essential to apply sunscreen several times a day, especially if several treatments are still required.

It should come as no surprise that if avoiding the sun is a must, then tanning beds are out of the question. Any plans for a tan should be put on hold after laser resurfacing treatments. Tanning is off limits throughout the whole process, which can take several months depending on what’s being treated.

Maintenance and Upkeep

Now that the age spots are gone and wrinkles eliminated, it’s time to focus on maintaining this youthful new look. Bad skin habits often lead people to get laser skin rejuvenation, but that shouldn’t be the go-to answer for skin imperfections.

For those who sought out laser treatments to reduce the signs of aging, there are a few things that can be done to prevent those wrinkles from coming back. Most importantly, avoid the sun. Even being outside for a short period of time can damage the skin, so it’s important to wear sunscreen, not only around the treated area but everywhere that the skin is exposed. Tanning beds and laying out on the beach are now hobbies of the past, and umbrellas and sun hats should always be accessible.

Moisturizing is also an important part of maintaining the skin’s new appearance, as it will postpone the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as keep the skin hydrated. If collagen production is one of the biggest issues, moisturizing will also keep the skin’s elasticity around longer. There are also some other choices to reconsider, as changing diet and lifestyle can produce collagen. Some examples are:

  • Add vitamin C to diet

  • Get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep a night

  • Consume healthy forms of protein such as seafood, eggs, meats, beans, and soy

  • Exercising regularly

Laser skin rejuvenation is great for eliminating imperfections and reversing the signs of aging, but these treatments won’t last long if skincare doesn’t become the main focus after completing the necessary laser treatments. The combination of laser treatments and a proper skincare routine can keep those wrinkles and sun spots away for years to come!

                POST CARE FOR INJECTED PRP WITH VAMPIRE FACELIFT

 

 

• What to Expect After Treatment: Immediately following the procedure, the most commonly reported temporary side effects are redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, tingling, numbness, lumpiness, and/or a feeling of pressure or fullness at the injection sites and/or in the treated area(s). Cold gel packs/ice may be gently applied immediately after treatment to reduce swelling.

• To Avoid Bruising: Avoid alcohol consumption for a minimum of 6 hours and refrain from taking blood thinners such as Aspirin and NSAIDS for several days. Tylenol is recommended if needed for discomfort.

• To Maximize Results and Prevent Complications: o Avoid touching or scrubbing at the injection sites for 24 hours after treatment.  Sleep on your back with your head elevated and avoid rubbing the treated area for 2 weeks.

• Combination Therapy for Optimal Results: PRP Therapy stimulates your skin to grow new, younger tissue however; it does not prevent muscle movement or resurface the skin. Most patients see best results when combining their PRP treatments with other anti-aging procedures such as Botox, Dermal Filler,Jet Peel etc.

• Follow up Appointment: Most patients see improvement within 2-4 weeks with continued improvement for up to 12 weeks. If the desired level of correction has not been reached within 4-12 weeks then we recommend repeating the procedure at 4-12 week intervals until you achieve the result you desire.

• Maintenance Treatments: The results of this treatment can last up to 2 years, but results vary and research documenting the longevity of results is ongoing. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months.

POST CARE FOR TOPICAL APPLICATION OF PRP WITH VAMPIRE FACIAL • To Maximize Results: For a minimum of 5 hours after the PRP has been applied to your skin, do NOT: Wash your skin, expose the treated area to direct high heat, or engage in activities that will get the skin wet or cause you to sweat (blow dryer, sun exposure, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, very hot shower, hot yoga, strenuous exercise, etc.) • For best results and efficacy: We recommend a series of 3-6 treatments administered at 2-4 week intervals. You may notice immediate as well as longer term improvements in your skin.

Avoid any trauma to the skin for up to 5-7 days, such as hot water, strenuous exercise, massage, facials, hot tubs or saunas.

  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated area to avoid causing any adverse reaction. If any crusting appears to apply your post procedure lotion as needed to soothe the skin.

                                  POST CARE MICROBLADING EYEBROW

 

Taking care of the area of skin where microblading took place is similar to tattoo care, if a bit more intensive. The pigment immediately following the procedure will appear quite dark, and the skin underneath will be red. About two hours after microblading, you should run a wet cotton swab that has been dipped in sterilized water over the area. This will get rid of any excess dye that’s on your brows. It will also keep the area sterile. It will take anywhere from 7-14 days for the skin to begin to appear healed and for the pigment to fade to its regular shade.

Follow these steps to properly take care of your skin after microblading:

  • Avoid getting the area wet for up to 10 days, which includes keeping your face dry during a shower.

  • Don’t wear makeup for at least a week. This is because the pigments are still settling in to the shallow cuts in your skin caused by the blading.

  • Don’t pick at scabs, tug, or itch the eyebrow area.

  • Avoid saunas, swimming, and excessive sweating until the area is completely healed and you have a follow-up appointment.

  • Keep your hair away from your brow line.

  • Apply any medicated cream or healing balm provided by your technician as directed.
