After treatment, you’ll receive Post Treatment Instructions that detail everything you need to know about recovery. In most cases, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities right away or within 24 hours. Normal side effects include swelling, redness and bruising, but these should dissipate within a few days. You may be able to prevent these symptoms from being as pronounced by avoiding caffeine, alcohol and aspirin for one to two days before your appointment. Twenty-four hours after treatment, you can cover any bruising with makeup.
For two days following your appointment, stay away from swimming, hot tubs, rubbing your face or working out. Once healed, your jawline should look amazing for about a year before needing a touch-up.
