HIFU - Before and Aftercare
There is often a little redness after treatment. There may also be some swelling or bruising. This resolves quickly without issue. You may also feel a little tender in the treated areas which usually resolves within 2 – 3 days. You may have a headache after treatment of the forehead area; I would suggest an over the counter remedy such as paracetamol if this is troublesome.
- Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before your appointment
- Arrive for your appointment make up free
- Take paracetamol about 20 mins before treatment commences, if required
- Avoid sun beds and sunbathing for a week before treatment
- Avoid microdermabrasion and skin peels for a week before treatment
