  • Wear the compression bandage for the advised period –
    • 24-48 hours for treatments on the face and under the chin

  • Return to every day activity as normal, but avoid vigorous exercise (including jogging and swimming) for 14 days.
  • Avoid saunas, steam baths or hot water for 7 days.
  • Mild analgesia may be taken if required e.g. paracetamol.
  • Avoid intense massage of the treatment area for 4 weeks.
  • Redness of the treated area is common and normally subsides with 24-48 hours.
  • Pain, swelling, bruising, discomfort and irritation may be present for several days.
  • Please contact us immediately if you experience persistent symptoms as follows:
    • unexpected pain, severe bruising or marked swelling of the treated area
    • heat, redness or tenderness of the treated area
    • marked discharge from the incisions after the first 24 hours
    • signs of systemic infection (flushed, temperature, feeling unwell)
