Post Treatment Guide For Coolsculpting®

What to Expect After Your Injectable Procedure?

Side effects of injectables are relatively minor but may include bruising, swelling, redness or tenderness around the injection site. Side effects from injectables typically resolve within 4-7 days following your treatment for fillers and just 30-60 minutes following Botox. To reduce the impact of side effects we recommend the following:

Botox – Post Treatment Instructions

  • Remain upright, no bending over or reclining for 4 hours
  • Do not exercise or elevate your heart rate after treatment for the remainder of the day
  • Do not massage or scratch the injection sites
  • Avoid makeup for 2 hours after injection
  • We recommend exercising (flexing) the treated muscles every 10 minutes for 1 hour post treatment

Filler – Post Treatment Instructions

  • You may apply cool compresses as needed to reduce swelling for the next 8 hours
  • Gently massage any nodules that may appear during the next 24 hours
  • Avoid prolonged sun or UV exposure for 1 week
  • Avoid makeup for 4 hours

Kybella – Post Treatment Instructions

  • No exercise and avoid salty foods for 48 hours post treatment.
  • To allow for intended inflammatory process and proper healing, avoid NSAIDS or other inflammatories such as Ibuprofen or Motrin.
  • Tylenol may be used as directed for relief of any discomfort.
  • Elevate the head above the level of the heart to assist with the decrease in swelling.

When Should I Expect to See Results?

Many of our clients report seeing initial results in as little as 1 month following their treatment. However, we advise that it typically takes 3 months to see full results from your procedure. Results are sustained indefinitely with healthy lifestyle and nutrition habits.

I had the Signature Facial and the Dermaplaning Treatment at Elan. This was by far the best facial that I have ever had! It was so relaxing and my skin was absolutely radiant after my treatment.

I also had dermaplaning which I had never done before. I have sensitive skin so I was a little nervous at first, but the esthetician calmed my nerves and the results were magical!

Anna Dickerson

I had a fantastic experience at Elan. I got (my first) microdermabrasion facial & was super impressed by the communicative approach, aftercare advice, &, most importantly, results.

You can tell how much care & attention is put towards the client’s experience which is refreshing.
