How do I prepare for cosmetic injectable services/treatments?2018-04-06T13:28:19+00:00

We all like to have a glass of wine or a cocktail every now & then but before a cosmetic injectable treatment, it really isn’t the best thing to do. To avoid any post treatment bruising and swelling for a period of seven days ( one week) prior to your appointment please refrain from consuming any alcohol, caffeine or taking medications or supplements that can cause your blood to thin. This includes ibuprofen, advil, fish oils and blood thinners. Please notify your aesthetician or certified cosmetic injector should you have issues with clotting or if you are a free bleeder. You want to also refrain from working out, sweating, receiving a massage, eating spicy foods or any type of aggressive cleansing with or without a brush for about 72 hours post treatment. This will avoid the spreading/breakdown of product and give you the most optimal results.

How long after injectable or laser treatments can I get a facial or a massage?2018-04-06T13:24:14+00:00

Post injections you want to wait a period of TWO WEEKS to receive any type of skin care/facial treatment that involves the manipulation of tissue or massaging of facial muscles.
