Post-Treatment Instructions

To minimize the risk of possible side effects and complications, please consider each point under your specific treatment. The outcome and duration of treatment results are dependent on many factors, including but not limited to age, sex, tissue conditions, general health and lifestyle conditions, and sun exposure. Ensure you complete your medical history and speak to your provider if you have any questions or concerns. Follow all instructions and recommendations made by your provider for your specific treatment. If you have concerns about Pre-Treatment Care points, please contact us and speak to your provider to seek advice.

Disclaimer: You are not a candidate for treatment if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have open sores in the treatment area.

Two days post-treatment:

  • No exercise or activity may increase the heart rate or blood pressure.

Two weeks pre and two weeks post-treatment

  • No skincare with active ingredients (Ex: Retinol/Retin-a, Lotion P50, Tretinoin, hydroquinone)
  • After any injection (dermal filler or wrinkle relaxer) wait at least two weeks for any type of facials, including our Biologique Recherche facials, Diamond glow, Oxygeneo, microneedling, etc.
  • All services must be booked at least two weeks before any big event.

Four weeks pre-treatment and four weeks post-treatment

  • Four weeks pre and four weeks post-treatment- No Sun exposure/ spray tan
  • Four weeks post-treatment- Avoid dental work if treated with Dermal Fillers.
  • Four weeks must be between any laser treatment and dermal filler/neurotoxin. (ex: RF microneedling, IPL, ResurFx, Picofractional, etc.)

You can read more specific details about each treatment below.

COSMETIC INJECTABLES and PDO THREADS

  • Results from the dermal filler and/or neurotoxin injections will take approximately 4 to 14 days to appear. (Bruising and swelling may still be apparent in that time period. Sculptra does take longer to see results so plan accordingly with your provider)
  • Do not use the following products two weeks before and two weeks after your treatment: Retin-A, Retinoids, or similar Vitamin A compounds.
  • It is recommended that clients wait at least a week post-treatment to fly. Changes in cabin pressure can precipitate the worsening of any swelling or bruising.
  • Avoid pressure on treated areas for the first few days post treatment. Sleep on your back and slightly elevated.
  • Avoid dental work (including standard teeth cleaning) at least one month following treatment.
  • Do NOT manipulate the treated area following treatment. Don’t touch the injection sites for twelve hours immediately following treatment – this reduces the risk of infection transmitted from hands or movement of the product into unwanted muscles.
  • Avoid significant movement or massaging of the treated area unless otherwise instructed by the provider. If a small lump occurs after filler treatment, that is after the initial 24 hours period, contact your provider.
  • Do NOT lie down for 4 hours after your neurotoxin treatment — this will prevent the product from tracking into the orbit of your eye and causing drooping eyelids.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment (or longer depending on the pre-treatment instructions).
  • Makeup may be worn 24 hours after treatment in treated areas. Check with your provider to clarify your makeup type and the specific treatment.
  • If you have swelling you may apply a cool compress for 15 minutes every hour; if you have excessive swelling.
  • Do not plan facial treatments, facials, facial waxing, chemical peels or microdermabrasion for two weeks after treatment.
  • Do not plan Laser/IPL or energy-based facial treatments for six weeks after treatment.
  • Studies show that smoking doesn’t immediately undo the benefits of a Botox treatment, but it will have an adverse impact over time, and tends to shorten the positive effects. If there is any bruising from the treatment, it may take longer to heal if the patient continues to smoke.

LASER TREATMENTS

  • After laser treatments, do NOT receive facial treatments or microdermabrasion for at least four weeks.
  • In the treatment areas, avoid dermal fillers and/or neurotoxin at least four weeks prior and four weeks after treatment.
  • Avoid neurotoxin at least two weeks prior and two weeks after treatment.
  • Do not use the following products two weeks before and two weeks after your treatment: Retin-A, Retinoids, or similar Vitamin A compounds, harsh scrubs or exfoliating products and bleaching creams. Check with your provider for further instructions regarding your specific laser treatment.
  • Avoid tanning, spray-tanning or sun exposure four weeks before and four weeks after treatment.
  • Do not wax two weeks before and two weeks after treatment.
  • After laser hair removal, the treated hair may not shed immediately. Please be reassured that the hair will eventually exfoliate. Anywhere from 5-14 days after the treatment, shedding of the treated hair may occur.
  • After laser hair removal, do not use any other hair removal treatment products or similar treatments (waxing, electrolysis or tweezing) that will disturb the hair follicle in the treatment area for 4-6 weeks after the laser treatment is performed. Shaving may be used.
  • Check with your provider if you plan to go for a swim or use a hot tub or sauna after your treatment.
  • Do not pick or scratch the treated area for 14 days post treatment.
  • Makeup may be worn 24 hours after treatment in treated areas. Check with your provider to clarify your makeup type and the specific laser treatment.

SKINCARE TREATMENTS and BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE FACIALS

  • Avoid tanning, spray-tanning or sun exposure four weeks before and four weeks after treatment.
  • Do not wax two weeks before and two weeks after treatment.
  • Do not exercise vigorously 3-4 days after peels; avoid excessive perspiration. (no hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms, etc.)
  • Do not use the following products two weeks before and two weeks after your treatment: Retin-A, Retinoids, or similar Vitamin A compounds, harsh scrubs or exfoliating products and bleaching creams.
  • Check with your provider if you plan to go for a swim or use a hot tub or sauna after your treatment.

FAT DISSOLVING OR BODY CONTOURING

  • Do not use the following products two days before and two days after your treatment: Retin-A, Retinoids, or similar Vitamin A compounds.
  • It is recommended that clients wait at least a week post-treatment to fly. Changes in cabin pressure can precipitate the worsening of any swelling or bruising.
  • No exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment.
  • Follow all directions regarding compression garments as instructed by your provider.
  • Do not wash or take a shower for at least 4 hours after treatment.
  • Swimming, hot tubs, saunas and massages are not recommended for 48 hours after treatment.

Maggie and her team at Medizen are world class. The genuine care and attention paid to the clients needs are some of the many reasons they are the best med spa in the state of Ohio. Highly recommended. Unlike any other experience available in the Columbus health and wellness community.

If you are looking for an aesthetic clinic or medspa that only has your best interest in mind, stop looking. MediZen is your one stop shop. Their art of fillers is unparalleled - it’s conservative and beautiful, they educate on small steps and actually talk you out unnecessary procedures, but will always have a clear logical treatment plan for you ready. I love that I do not have to know what procedure or filler I need - they always guide me what is best for me to achieve natural results without the risk of being overdone or anyone knowing I had anything done. Highly highly recommend!
