POST-PROCEDURAL CARE - DAY 1 TO 5
• The healing time for any given treatment varies between different clients. The following represents the general recovery phases you might expect. Individual clients may experience variations from this course.
• Swelling of your wrinkles occurs immediately. Significant swelling and redness of the treated areas and untreated parts may occur following your procedure, and will be maximal at 24 – 48 hours. To minimize swelling, keep your head elevated. It is not uncommon for clients to experience under-eye swelling for the first 1 to 2 days, but this swelling will subside. There will be redness and slight heat emanating from the treated area for the first 24 hours, akin to a mild sunburn. It is unusual to experience severe or excessive pain; you should notify us if this occurs. Tiny scabs will usually be formed 24 – 72 hours post-treatment, and may remain for several days. The scabs should not be touched or scratched even if they itch, and should be allowed to shed off naturally.
• Some mild discomfort may occasionally follow resurfacing treatment. You may return to regular activities immediately. It is advised that you avoid hot baths, saunas, Jacuzzis, and pools for the first two days following treatment, as the bacteria common to these sites can affect the skin post-resurfacing and cause an infection. Some minor heat emanating from the treated area is normal, but please do not apply ice or cooling compresses, as that heat is the body’s natural healing response.
• Post-treatment care, including applying of moisturizers or supporting creams on the treated skin, is at the Physician’s discretion. Make-Up: After 24 hours, most resurfacing clients are ready for makeup to hide the pinkness of the skin. If applied, it is important that you remove all makeup from the skin at night. Do not sleep with make up on the treated area.
• Avoiding direct sun should become a permanent component of your long-term skin care program. Always use an SPF 30 or greater beginning 24 – 48 hours after the skin has fully healed. Sun exposure, tanning beds, and artificial sunless tanning lotions are not allowed in the treated areas during the course of the treatment and healing. Long-Term
• In addition to avoiding direct sun exposure, we suggest all clients use long-term skin care that will optimize the youthful, rejuvenated appearance you have achieved. We offer clients a program for long-term facial skin maintenance This unique program offers state- of-the-art skin maintaining and rejuvenating creams that are only available and administered by our skin specialist team.
• The following are some of the symptoms that should alert you to the possibility of an impending or existing complication and you should contact the clinic: Infection: Infection may be present if you notice increased (rather than decreasing) facial swelling after the first 24 – 36 hours.
Redness spreading beyond the area of resurfacing, that is warm and tender to touch.
POST-PROCEDURAL CARE - DAY 1 TO 5
• Do not get the treatment area wet for 48 hours and do not apply any cosmetic or cosmeceutical products on the treated area except the DermaHeal/Stratamed 4 hours, with clean fingers.
• A mild to intense sunburn-like sensation is anticipated. This usually resolves within 2-3 hours of treatment but may persist for up to 2 days. Application of CLEAN cold compress or an ice pack every hour for 5 to 10 minutes may be soothing and reduce swelling but is not necessary.
• Completely avoid sun exposure to treated areas for first 48 hours
• On day 3, you should start applying a sun block with SPF 30 or greater daily to sun-exposed treated areas between treatments and for 4-6 weeks after last treatment.
• Bathe or shower as usual. Treated areas may be temperature sensitive. Avoid use of strongly scented lotions or soaps, prescription strength exfoliant creams, loofah sponges, and aggressive scrubbing to treated areas during healing phase
• Allow any blistered or open areas to heal without any intervention. If healing is delayed, a thin coating of antibiotic ointment may be advised. Do not pick at these areas. Picking may result in infection or scarring. Allow any crusting to heal without any intervention, crusting will resolve in 3 to 14 days. Application of antibiotic ointment is not recommended for crusting. Do not use exfoliants during this phase. Allow shedding to occur naturally.
• Applying cosmetics on treated areas (mineral makeup permitted after from Day 3)
• Avoid Swimming, Hot tubs and Jacuzzis
• Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs as this will cause unwanted side effects
• Increased photosensitivity to UV can occur when taking certain medications. During your treatment programme, if you have commenced or changed dosage with the following medications, you must advise your clinician:
Antibiotics – doxycycline (acne), minocycline, Tetracyclines, Sulphonamides
Antihistamines – Diphenhydramone, Cyproheptadine
Herbal preparations – St Johns wort, Gingko Biloba, citrus oils, Herbal HRT therapies
AFTER CARE ANTI-WRINKLE
Q: What should I avoid doing after treatment?
The treatment involves administering micro-needle injections into or around the facial muscles to relax the action of the muscles that causes wrinkles. To allow the wrinkle relaxant to perform optimally, it’s best to avoid the following:
- Rubbing or massaging injected area for at least 4 hours after treatment
- Strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
- Wearing tight-fitting headgear that covers the forehead.
- Lying on your front; try to keep upright position for 4 hours after treatment.
- Drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours before and after treatment.
- Applying make-up for at least 24 hours after treatment. Mineral make-up may be applied immediately after treatment. However, you should take extra caution not to use too much pressure around the treated area.
Q: How soon can I resume normal activities?
Anti-wrinkle injections offer a quick and safe procedure with minimal impact on your normal activities during the day of injection. You may resume normal daily activities immediately following treatment. However, you should wait at least 4 hours before performing light exercises such as walking, jogging or upright yoga. Strenuous workouts such as weight training, cross training and long-distance running are best to avoid for the first 24 hours.
Q: How long do the effects of anti-wrinkle injections last?
It’s impossible to give a definite answer as some people experience longer lasting results than others. Scientific evidence shows the effects typically last between 12-16 weeks.
Q: What are the possible side effects to wrinkle relaxants?
Beyond a slight redness or tiny raised bumps around the injection points that typically disappear after about 30 minutes, there are no side effects related to anti-wrinkle injections for the majority of cases. Since everyone’s physiology is not identical, a small minority may experience minor bruising or temporary headache – the latter can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
Q: When is the best time to reschedule a treatment?
When you notice the wrinkles that you have smoothed or reduced slowly begin to reappear, the treatment effects are wearing off. Once the effects have worn off, it is safe for you to treat the same area with anti-wrinkle injections. NOTE: Due to the treatment, no new wrinkles will have been formed in the interim.
It is recommended that treatments be scheduled 12-16 weeks after the last treatment. You may administer multiple treatments in different areas at the same time. Since the anti-wrinkle agent does not accumulate in your system, it is perfectly safe to top up treatments in the same area once effects have worn off.
