CARE

If approved by your primary care provider, avoid all blood thinners one week before having your injections. This may include Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Aleve, Motrin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Garlic, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Ginkgo biloba, and Primrose oil.

Avoid alcohol 1-2 days prior to treatment to lessen the chances of bruising. 

Prepare for bruising and swelling are always a possibility (especially under eyes)

Plan procedures 2-3 weeks before important events.

No dental work 2 weeks prior to your treatment.

Arnica is optional prior to treatment to help minimize bruising.

If possible, come to your appointment with a clean face, free of make-up.

We will not treat you if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or leaving town within 5 days.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!  Drink at least 64 oz of water and eat a good snack before coming to prepare for the blood draw.

Take 2000 mg of Vitamin C daily before your treatment.  The earlier you start, the better!

To lessen your chance of irritation & redness, pause the use of Retinol & exfoliating acids 3 days before your treatment & for 3 days after

CARE

Do not massage the treatment area

Keep your head above your heart for 4 hours

Do not exercise for 24-48 hours

Continue to avoid Aspirin for 2 weeks post-procedure (do NOT stop taking any prescribed anticoagulants for this procedure unless cleared by your prescribing practitioner).

If you are having pain or soreness, it is okay to take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) as directed per package recommendations

Do not apply ice to the treatment area for 72 hours

Avoid hot baths, saunas, and steam rooms for 3 days

DON’T worry, the swelling will come down and the bruising will subside 

The treated area may look asymmetrical or uneven (especially in the tear troughs or lips) for up to 10 days following the procedure, this is normal.

The treated area may feel firm when touched, this is normal

This treatment does not require “touch up” treatments as it is your own body’s natural collagen process that is working over the course of several weeks to months after treatment.

Call the office immediately if the areas treated become red or hot to the touch days after treatment.

Call the office 801.557.5200 as soon as possible if patchy, red, or hot patches appear in the treatment area or around the treatment area, if you have severe or increasing pain, or if the area becomes red or hot to the touch after the procedure.
