What to Do:

Follow Your Aftercare Instructions Carefully

There’s a reason why providers strongly stress aftercare instructions. Following them will help you achieve the most stunning results possible and ensure they last as long as possible! Injectable treatments can have different effects on everyone, so it’s critical that you follow directions to prevent any potential issues down the line. Our talented team at Re:nu 180 Medspa will always provide clear aftercare instructions after your treatment, so you can adjust your daily routine as needed and confidently flaunt flawless results.

Stay Hydrated

It’s important to drink water during any season, but in the summer heat, it’s absolutely essential. Being dehydrated can drastically affect how injections settle in the skin, so drink plenty of water before and after your treatment. It’s also wise to avoid alcohol and caffeine for at least 24 hours post-treatment, as these ingredients can cause increased bruising and swelling. Once you receive your treatment, you’ll want to rock your results as soon as possible, so don’t let dehydration stand in the way of being fabulous!

What to Avoid:

Sun Exposure

Once the warm weather hits, it’s hard to resist the urge to lounge outside every chance you get. But before you go basking in a bathing suit, it’s important to understand the sun’s effect on the skin. In addition to premature aging, sun exposure can cause inflammation, pigmentation changes, and breakdown fillers. So, protect your skin by applying sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and always pack your favorite hat.

Sweating and Exercise

While injections are usually fast-acting, most products need at least 24 hours to settle into the skin completely. Engaging in exercise or other sweat-inducing activities can cause your injectable treatment to shift or migrate, leading to uneven results. But if you’re in the mood to get moving, you can always go for a casual walk to let out some energy. Just remember to avoid putting pressure on the treatment area as a rule of thumb.

By following these tips, you can enjoy the benefits of injectable treatments while still enjoying the summer season. Remember that post-treatment care is crucial for optimal results, so take care of your skin, and you can be youthfully radiant all year round!
