Most people are able to continue with normal activities. Some will have some redness, pin- prick marks, swelling (particularly following a lip treatment) which should settle within a few days. Cold packs may be advised to help alleviate swelling and arnica may be recommended to reduce bruising. Your practitioner will provide you with aftercare advice.
Bruising and swelling may be more apparent the next day and can take up to 14 days to disappear. Tenderness should settle within 48 hours.
After treatment it is expected that you will see an improvement straight away although due to initial swelling, the product may feel hard or lumpy or asymmetrical immediately afterwards. The final results are best judged at a 2-week review appointment.
