What to Expect 

Day 1-3: You may bruise. Needles have pierced your skin- there are vessels inside of us that may get poked. Following pre and post care WILL greatly reduce your chances of bruising. **Apply OTC Arnica gel to any bruising for faster healing.

 Swelling can last several days depending on how aggressive of a treatment you received. Make sure to plan your social calendar accordingly! We recommend planning 2 weeks ahead.

Day 2-7:  You may notice skin dryness as skin has been stretched a bit tighter and HA filler is designed to draw or attract lots of water. Drink extra water, apply approved lubricants only... no petroleum or vitamin e based stuff. Do not pick, scratch, or scrub at treated skin! 

Day 5-7: Notify provider if any irregularities or concerns exist at this time-they may want you to pop in for a visual assessment.  Swelling can take a full 2 weeks to completely resolve.
