  • Arnica is optional prior to treatment to help minimize bruising. We carry multiple options within our office.
  • If possible, come to your appointment with a clean face, free of makeup.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • Do not apply makeup preferably for 4 hours after treatment. Waiting 24 hours is best.
  • Continue to avoid alcohol for 1-2 days if bruising occurs as it could worsen.
  • Continue to avoid blood thinning medications for up to 1 week as bruising occurs.
  • Some people feel that continuing to take arnica after treatment (while bruising persists) can help to heal bruising faster.
  • Call the office immediately if the areas treated become red or hot to the touch days after treatment.
