What to Expect
Avoid dental procedures, including cleanings, and vaccinations two weeks before and after your appointment.
Avoid travel within 48 hours of SkinVive treatment.
Avoid strenuous exercise, ibuprofen, aspirin or alcohol for 24 hours as this might increase your risk of bruising.
We advise a pre-treatment with Valtrex for patients with a history of cold sores.
Taking Arnica before or after the injections may decrease the risk of developing a bruise and/or help to diminish the bruise faster.
Avoid facial massage including at-home devices for two weeks.
Bruising and swelling may occur, but will typically subside after several days. You may apply arnica and ice (for no longer than 5 minutes at a time) to the affected area periodically.
Avoid wearing makeup and touching your face for 24 hours after your treatment.
Avoid strenuous exercise, ibuprofen, aspirin or alcohol for 48 hours as this might increase your risk of bruising. For mild soreness/tenderness, Tylenol can be taken.
If you experience pain or changes to your skin (paleness, blisters or bruising extending beyond the injection sites), please contact us immediately. Text or call 917-573-6806
