Before a treatment makeup and all other cosmetics should be removed to ensure the skin is clean. This can be done using an astringent or facial cleansing lotion. Using cold water will ensure that pores are not dilated. It is strongly advised to not take any anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. Aspirin, Advil etc.) at least 3 days prior to treatment as they may increase swelling or bleeding at the injection site. It is also recommended to avoid alcohol, fish oil, ginkgo and omegas before treatment as well.
For the first day or so after a treatment with Reyoungel, try to keep the face relaxed by not making any highly expressive facial movements and avoiding any strenuous exercise. It is also important not be exposed to extreme heat (e.g. sauna, tanning bed, etc.) for a few days after the treatment as this may reduce the longevity of the results. Unless instructed to, do not massage the injected area. Makeup can be reapplied immediately after the treatment.
It is important to remember to avoid the following things immediately before/after the treatment:
• Advil, aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs
• Fish oil
• Strenuous exercise
• Extreme heat or cold
