Post treatment


So you’ve had your treatment with us, what next?

  • Here at Omega Derma, we provide you with free open access post treatment advice.

  • Your practitioner will provide you with written advice after your treatment – please read this carefully.

 

 

Just in case you need a reminder, here is the information

  • Common symptoms after treatment can include bruising, swelling and redness at the injection site.
  • These symptoms are not uncommon and can resolve within a week or two.
  • Using an ice pack, cold compress or Arnica cream can help reduce these issues.
