Proper “pre” and “post” care is essential to achieving optimal results from your treatment. If there are any outstanding questions after reading the information provided below, please do not hesitate to call us. We want to ensure all of your questions are thoroughly answered.


Pre-Treatment Instruction:

  • Schedule your appointment with plenty of time before a major event. The swelling after this procedure may take up to 2 weeks to resolve.
  • Inform our team if you have any history with difficulty swallowing, known allergies, take allergy medications or have ever had an anaphylactic reaction.
  • Women who are pregnant or nursing CAN NOT get this treatment.
  • To minimize bruising avoid the following ~7 days prior to treatment: baby aspirin, Aleve, Motrin, multivitamins, vitamin E and D, fish oils, alcoholic beverages. These are blood thinners and will cause you to bruise more easily. Note: DO NOT discontinue baby aspirin or any blood thinners prescribed by a physician before checking with THAT PHYSICIAN.
  • Wash your face and neck area the day of your procedure, and do not apply moisturizer, sunscreen, makeup or any other products to your skin. This will help to minimize your risk of infection.

Post-Treatment Instruction:

  • Do not panic if you see redness, swelling or bruising that lasts a couple of weeks after your treatment. This is normal and to be expected. The more fat there is the more swelling there will be. However, if symptoms persist longer than expected, please call our office.
  • Ice the area carefully. Make sure to keep a cloth barrier between your skin and the ice pack to avoid potential frostbite.
  • You can apply a cool compress to the area for the first 24 hours after treatment
  • Avoid strenuous activity for the first few days after your injections.
  • Sleep with your head elevated for the next several nights (~1-6 nights) to avoid additional swelling.
  • Do NOT massage the area. This will cause further irritation.
  • Take ibuprofen or acetaminophen as instructed. If your pain is not made manageable by these over-the-counter medications call your injector
