Before instructions for Hyaluron Pen Filler Treatment
DOES IT HURT? It is not an overly painful procedure, some say its pain-free, but It is essential to recognize that pain threshold levels vary from person to person and our clients comfort throughout the entirety of the procedure is of utmost importance. A topical anaesthetics can be applied (optional) to numb the area before. Personal circumstances such as the timing of a menstrual cycle may increase discomfort throughout the procedure, and the topical anaesthetic may lose its intensity for regular smokers. If you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, be conscious that this may affect your sensitivity tolerance to the procedure.
BE PREPARED FOR A LITTLE REDNESS, SWELLING and/or BRUISING. Prepare for some redness, swelling and/or bruising on your lip/mouth area or facial skin, that may occur just after the procedure. Different types of skin react differently to the procedure so just keep that in mind when making plans for the next couple of hours/days after your Hyaluron Pen treatment appointment.
SCRUB the night/week heading up to your lip procedure, use a lip/sugar scrub, (sugar and coconut oil), toothbrush or face cloth to gently exfoliate your lips and keep them hydrated with a lip balm.
DRINK 8 glasses of water every day for two weeks prior to your appointment & continue daily after your procedure
COME TO THE PROCEDURE WITH MINIMAL MAKEUP. Normal daily make up is totally ok, we suggest you do not put on any makeup on your facial &/or Lip area being treated
MEDICATIONS. There are certain medications we suggest you not to take within the 48 hours before the procedure. These are for example Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve and also other pain-killers. Also, we suggest you avoid medications that have any other strong effect on your body. Please always check with your doctor first.
CONSUMING ALCOHOL BEFORE THE PROCEDURE. It would be just perfect if you would not have any sort of alcohol drink within the 48 hours before the procedure. Do not consume larger amount of alcohol the night before the procedure, or your appointment will need to be rescheduled and your deposit lost.
PLEASE AVOID PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN RETINA. In case you are using products that contain a significant amount of Retin A (tretinoin) we suggest you to cut down the usage of those one week before the procedure. This, however, concerns the facial area only. Basically when you know when your appointment time is coming up, just cut down using these products on the area of the treatment. That also concerns products that contain a significant amount of A-vitamin. Avoid topical products such as Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinol, Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or hair removal cream on the area to be treated for 3 days prior.
PLEASE AVOID AHA SKINCARE PRODUCTS BEFORE THE PROCEDURE. This concerns the week before the procedure. We suggest you avoid skincare products that contain Alpha-hydroxy-acid. In addition to that, we also suggest you cut down the usage of anti-ageing products on your possible treatment area two weeks prior to the appointment. Also, if you are taking one or many of the following medications, you should take a break one week before the treatment: Primrose oil, Garlic, Ginko Biloba, Ginseng or Vitamin E.
BLOOD-DONOR. It is not in your best interest to go donate blood on the appointment day. Basically, that might just strain your body too much and you might start feeling weak. As well as there may be some issues regarding the contents of your blood the day after the procedure, So make sure you let them know you have had Hyaluron fillers
OTHER PROCEDURES. To achieve the best result regarding Hyaluron Pen you should not have other treatments that concern the dermal layer of your skin 2 – 4 weeks prior to the appointment. In addition to injections that actually concerns also other sorts of skin rejuvenation procedures, such as permanent cosmetics, tattoos, lasers, chemical procedures etc. BE OPEN ABOUT YOUR ALLERGIES OR CHRONIC ILLNESSES. Be sure to tell our Hyaluron Pen treatment professional everything you consider even mildly important about the chronic illnesses or allergies you might have. Please list everything you know about cosmetic substances that have had a negative effect on your skin. Be aware that you are obligated to fill in an additional information in your consultation about the state of your health and everything affecting that (such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, any sort of neurological disorders in your past, etc) in the salon.
