So if your skin is in need an anti-aging treatment this is the one for you! If you already have or are considering Botox please do your research between the both before hand. Don’t get me wrong Botox is a great temporary solution for fine lines and wrinkles however, using it long term can cause more problems. 

This is because botox paralyses the muscle which then causes the muscle to deteriorate as the muscle does not get any movement or exercise. As a result, once the Botox has worn off a few months later the problem is worse and you are forced to have more to temporarily improve your skin and continue in a downwards cycle.

Pre-Treatment Care

You should try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes sunbathing (natural or artificial). Practitioners are unlikely to treat someone who has sunburn for example, as they would be more likely to suffer pain from the addition of heat to the already damaged skin; however, an established tan would be fine. 

Some women find that their skin is more sensitive right before and during their menstrual cycle so if you are a woman, you might want to take this effect on pain threshold into consideration when scheduling your treatment appointment(s).

Post- Treatment Care

No special care is needed after treatment although your practitioner may suggest some of the following:
 
  • A light application of soothing/moisturising lotions, creams or gels to the treatment area, such as aloe-vera.
  • Cool, moisturising mists applied as you feel necessary.
  • Cool water rinses or ice packs applied to the treatment area.
  • No direct sunlight such a sunbathing or sunbed for 48 hours after the treatment as skin is more sensitive and prone to burning.
