CARE

Avoid strenuous exercise or straining for about 48 hours after your treatment.

For 48 hours following your QWO treatment, avoid medications and supplements that can cause bruising. Compression garments (Spanx, biker shorts) may be worn following treatment to improve comfort.

Following QWO treatment, there is moderate to severe bruising. After treatment, 84% of study participants experienced bruising.

When bruising occurs on buttocks, it is typically eggplant-purple in color. It usually takes 2-4 weeks for bruises to disappear. After the first QWO treatment, bruising typically lessens in severity, and with repeated treatments, bruising generally disappears. Avoid medications, supplements, and foods that can thin the blood (examples: Advil/ibuprofen, aspirin, alcohol, vitamin E, fish oil).

Oral Arnika Forte starting 1-3 days before treatment and continue until bruising has resolved. Take as directed on bottle.

Avoid excessive sun exposure during treatments and for 2 months following last treatment to avoid post- inflammatory hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration) around treatment area.

In the first few days after a QWO treatment, there may be mild discomfort, pain, or warmth. The discomfort is usually not severe enough to interfere with daily activities. There was no correlation between soreness and sometimes dramatic bruising. The discomfort associated with QWO treatment may be reduced by taking extra strength Tylenol.

It is likely that swelling or fullness will occur after treatment. It is a common side effect that may last for 1-2 weeks after treatment.
