Preparing for Profhilo® treatment
For at least 24 hours before treatment, you should avoid drinking alcohol and taking anti-inflammatories or aspirin. Please consult your GP beforehand if you are taking these for an ongoing medical condition.
Profhilo® aftercare, downtime and side-effects
After treatment, we advise you to not wear makeup and avoid going to the gym, sauna or steam room for at least 24 hours. You should also avoid touching or rubbing the injection site for a few days post treatment.
You may experience a little bruising and inflammation where the needle has punctured the skin, but this will naturally disappear after a while, just as any bruise would.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment and you should be able to return to work straight away.
