Last updated 8th December 2022

Dermal Fillers

Do not expose the area to intense heat for the first 24 hours. Avoid pressure on the treated areas for the first few nights (i.e. sleep on back of possible). Avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for 24 hours. Do not use AHA, Retinols/Vitamin C therapy or oil based make-up for 24 hours

Avoid facials, facial waxing, Glycolic or AHA peels, IPL or energy based treatments and microdermabrasion for two weeks after treatment. Please check with your physician before undergoing other facial treatments within this time

Avoid dermal fillers two weeks before or after COVID19 vaccination. If you are having lip fillers and have had cold sores, consider Acyclovir before and after treatment.

If you have any concerns, please contact your practitioner on

Wrinkle Injections

You may begin to notice the effects of your treatment within 2-14 days. Avoid putting any pressure on the treated area for 24-48 hours after treatment. Do not massage the area of injection for at least 24 hours after treatment. Do not apply makeup for 6-8 hours post treatment. If you feel unwell or are concerned about any aspect of your treatment, contact the clinic.

Chemical peels, geneO and Radiofrequency microneedling recovery...

Your skin needs protecting from the sun after these treatments. Using daily factor 30-50 sun protection is important, especially in long car journeys.

You may also find your skin is a bit more dry than usual while you are recovering so you may find it helpful to carry a moisturiser in your bag.

Try not to pick at peeling or dry skin and just moisturise when you notice it. As always, remember to keep hydrated!

Fat dissolving injections

These injections can take 6 weeks to have full effect and it may take more than one treatment to get the results you're after. Massaging the area after treatment will also help.

Applying pressure and a cold compress to the treatment area will help reduce swelling and bruising after treatment.

It is important to have a low fat diet for the 2 weeks after your treatment. Using apps like Myfitness pal can help with this.
