  • Do NOT touch, press, rub, or manipulate the areas injected for at least 6 hours after the treatment. This can cause irritation, sores, or possible scarring. You will feel lumps there for at least 3-10 days. If you SEE lumps and bumps, call your provider!
  • Avoid Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids for at least 3 days after treatment. Taking these may increase the risk of bleeding and/or bruising. If you have bruising, it will fade and go away like any other bruise. This may take up to 7-10 days.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high-sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours after your treatment. Using these may increase the risk of swelling and/or irritation.
  • Avoid the use of Retin-A or similar products 2 days after the treatment to avoid increased irritation or redness. You may use a gentle cleanser and a moisturizer and Aquaphor for the lips.
  • Avoid cosmetic treatments such as laser, ultrasound, peels, facials, or microdermabrasion for 2 weeks after treatment.
  • Avoid wearing makeup until the following day. Earlier use may cause pustules.
  • Try to sleep on your back instead of on your sides, vigorous exercise, and pressure changes (flights) to avoid shifting the product for 2-3 days.
  • If you received midface injections, avoid submerging your head for 24 hours. Also, avoid dental cleaning or dental work for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your treatment.
  • Please report IMMEDIATELY to the provider if there is ANY increased pain, increased swelling, redness, blisters, or itching after your treatment.
  • Gently ice the treated areas for the next 24 hours if needed: 20 mins on and 20 min off.
