Post Treatment

Patients receiving treatment should follow post treatment Instructions.

What should I do after treatment?

Aftercare is as important as your treatment. If you do not perform good aftercare your results will be severely affected.

You will notice little crusts on the treated area. These will be covered with concealer which we will give you as part of your treatment. You must not pick or scratch these, otherwise you will scar.

You must wash the area with the designated soap twice daily, then apply antiseptic as directed. The area should then be patted dry with a clean towel. Thereafter apply Oxygenetics to the treated area.

You must protect the treated area from sunlight, so the use of a high factor sunscreen (at least SPF30) for at least two months after treatment is mandatory. You must not use sunbeds in this time. You may exercise, swim and apply your normal skincare when all the crusts have come off and the wound has settled down.

The crusts can crack and ooze – if this happens, do not pick them. Apply your aftercare products and leave the area to heal.

Smoking can cause problems with the blood flow to wounds and treatment areas. We advise you to quit.

You must not use products other than those we tell you to apply in the healing period. This includes moisturisers, shower gels and perfume to the area that has received treatment. Do not cover the area with plasters, it will scar!

Failure to comply with aftercare instructions can result in diminished results and poor outcome, incomplete healing, skin textural changes, scarring or pigmentation. Take the aftercare seriously – you may think that it is better if you don’t apply the aftercare products or follow your instructions but you will get a bad result. If you are worried at all or need our reassurance then you must call us before deciding to change your aftercare protocols!

We recommend scheduling review appointments. They should be scheduled roughly 14 days after your treatment. The follow up appointments allow us to assess your progress and if any follow up treatments are needed.


Possible risks and complications

Plexr is a relatively safe treatment. After the initial swelling and crust formation, both of which are normal, there will be pink “baby” skin which will initially be itchy and then slowly achieve normal colouring.

The risks include:

Purpura (red-purple discolouration, bruising)

Swelling (this is profuse and may last up to 7 days, especially on treatment of the eyes)

Scabbing & Crusting (so-called Carbon-crust, which usually resolved within 5-10 days but can take significantly longer)

Skin Color and/or Textural Changes (skin can remain pink for up to 4 weeks)

Hyperpigmentation/hypopigmentation (darkening/lightening of the skin; transient or long term)

Scarring (rare, possibly permanent if the proper after care instruction are not upheld).

Reactions to local anaesthetic gel Infections at the treatment site

Reactivation of cold sores (around the mouth) – should you suffer with cold sores please let your clinician know

These are all complications which are usually associated with poor aftercare. However, some patients may experience these even when good aftercare is exercised.


Things to consider before commencing with treatment


Plexr is a new treatment and the procedure is relatively safe. However, complications can occur in the aftercare period if proper care is not taken.


You must take it easy for two weeks. You will need to take time off work and the scabs on the treated area look brown and scabby for up to two weeks, which can look a bit scary. You will not be able to cover these fully and this is not a no downtime procedure.


If your eyes feel gritty after the procedure, please make sure you rinse them thoroughly with running water and get in touch with us.


If you have your upper eyelids treated, you will also get swelling of the lower eyelid post- operatively. You will look very, very swollen and it can potentially take a whole week for this to resolve. This is in line with normal healing. We suggest you take an adequate amount of time off work and warn your friends and family that you will be looking less than great in the healing period.


Please do not go decorating your house, cleaning your house, on holiday, on sunbeds, swimming, or going out doing sports as this will disrupt your healing and irritate the skin.

If you pick the scabs they will weep. If they are weeping, please continue with the wound care and disrupt the area as little as possible.


Plexr treatment is not for the faint-hearted. The results are fantastic, but there is significant downtime. It’s not no surgery, it’s SOFT surgery. Please do not be under any illusions about it being a magic wand.

A few simple guidelines both pre and post-treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one.

Exosomes Post Care

POST CARE FOR INJECTED EXOSOMES FOR PAIN RELIEF

● What to Expect After Treatment: ​Immediately following the procedure, the most commonly reported temporary side effects are redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, tingling, numbness, lumpiness, and/or a feeling of pressure or fullness at the injection sites and/or in the treated area(s). Cold gel packs/ice may be gently applied immediately after treatment to reduce swelling. The procedure may initially increase the symptoms for one to three days (and occasionally, up to ten days), and then may decrease in intensity.
● To Avoid Bruising​: Avoid alcohol consumption for a minimum of 6 hours and refrain from taking blood thinners such as Aspirin and NSAIDS for several days. Tylenol is recommended if needed for discomfort.
● To Maximize Results and Prevent Complications: ​o Avoid touching or scrubbing at the injection sites for 24 hours after treatment. o Avoid direct high heat (blow dryer, sun exposure, sauna, steam room, very hot shower, hot yoga, strenuous exercise, etc.) for 24 hours after treatment.
● Maintenance Treatments: ​The results of this treatment can last up to more than 1 year, but results vary and research documenting the longevity of results is ongoing. Follow up visits are recommended every 6-12 months. POST CARE FOR TOPICAL APPLICATION OF EXOSOMES WITH MICRONEEDLING

A few simple guidelines both pre and post-treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Pre and Post Care

PRECARE INSTRUCTIONS: TO PREPARE FOR THE BLOOD DRAW ASSOCIATED WITH PRP THERAPY

● PRP Therapy is very safe because cells from the patient’s own blood are used, which means there are no preservatives and no chance of the body rejecting the cells. The primary risks and discomforts are related to the blood draw where there is a slight pinch to insert the needle for collection and there is a potential for bruising at the site.
● For optimal results and to decrease the chance of bruising at the draw site, please avoid all blood thinning medications and herbal supplements for 1 week prior to your appointment. Avoid taking Aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) such as such as Ibuprofen, Motrin and Aleve. In addition, very high doses of some Vitamins and supplements can thin your blood and increase the chance of bruising. Please notify your provider if you are taking Coumadin, Plavix, or any other blood thinners for a medical condition.
● During the course of your treatments, notify our staff of any changes to your medical history, health status, or personal activities that may be relevant to your treatment.

Lipotropic nutrients are a class of natural ingredients that play an important role in the body’s use of fat. These compounds enhance liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up the metabolism of fat and its removal. Our formula of Lipotropics has been formulated to enhance your current weight loss efforts i.e. following a healthy diet plan, staying well hydrated, and exercising.

Side effects are rare

Upset stomach and urinary problems​:

If you are not adequately hydrating, this fat-fighting cocktail can put a strain on the kidneys. This strain can lead to a stomach ache and possibly urinary problems. These side effects are temporary and will subside as you hydrate.

Exhaustion from Lipotropic injections:​

One of the ways that lipotropic injections help you lose weight and fat is by temporarily changing the function of the digestive system. By increasing your metabolism and efficiency of the digestive tract, your body is working at a higher level than usual. This increased workload can lead to extreme exhaustion in the period immediately following the injection.

Pain or tenderness at the injection spot​:

It is possible to experience some pain and tenderness at the point of injection. The pain tends to go away quite quickly. Please contact us if you are experiencing swelling, pain, and redness at the injection spot after a few days, as you may have an infection at the injection site.

A few simple guidelines post-treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one.

A few simple guidelines both pre and post-treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one.

Neuromodulators (e.g. Botox, Xeomin and Dysport) are meant to temporarily block the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles – reducing the activity in these muscles which decreases the appearance of lines/wrinkles.

After placement into the targeted muscle, the weakening effect gradually begins anywhere from 24 hours – 5 days and is not complete for two weeks. Therefore, optimal results are not seen for at least two weeks. Any assessment for touch-ups cannot be performed until 2 weeks after the initial treatment.

Instructions:

● Do not rub the site.
● You may experience stinging at the injection site for 10-15 minutes
● You may experience temporary redness and/or bumps. This usually subsides in
a few hours.
FOR 24 hours unless otherwise noted (to allow product to settle evenly):
● Do not bend over.
● Maintain an upright posture for 6 hours.
● No vigorous exercise for 12 hours.
● Do not lie down flat for 4 hours. If you lie down, lay at an incline.
● Do not lie on your side. Lay on your back at an incline.
● Do not consume alcohol (thins blood)
● Do not take Vitamin A
● APPLYING MAKEUP – For 24 hours after treatment please wipe the treated areas with alcohol before and after you apply makeup to protect from bacteria
● Do NOT take Aspirin. Some patients develop a headache, which can be treated with Ibuprofen or Tylenol. This usually lasts less than 24 hours.
● For 24 hours, do not have any facial treatments, micro-dermabrasion, or electrolysis
