Here at The Beauty Room Skincare & Beauty Clinic we pride ourselves in offering the best customer care possible, which is why we have created the aftercare clinic, a section of our website dedicated to pre and post treatment advice on all our therapies to guarantee you get the most out of your treatments.  

Medical Aesthetics Aftercare 

Botox- as Botox has no recovery time, there is little aftercare required. Immediately following treatment you can enhance its effects by gently moving the treated area with mild facial exercises. For the first 2 hours after treatment, its important not to rub the affected areas. For the succeeding 24hrs, don't engage in vigorous exercise, drink alcohol or experience prolonged sun exposure whether natural or artificial        

Dermal Fillers- Immediately after treatment, there may be a slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area, this is a normal result of the injection. The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears in a day or two. Apply an ice-pack to the treated area, this will reduce the initial swelling, if you are having lip treatment the initial swelling may last longer. Avoid touching the treated area for 6 hours following treatment, after that, light make-up can be applied and the area can be gently washed with soap & water.    

Medik8 Skin Peel Aftercare

After treatment we will provide you with a sample size of our Medik8 recovery cream which will keep the skin hydrated post treatment.

Superfacial-  Treat your skin gently (no wash cloths or facial sponges) wear SPF and limit time outdoors (to minimise sun exposure) do not use AHAs, topical steroids, retinol or physical exfoliants.

Age Peel, Beta Peel & White Peel- Apply your sample of recovery cream for at least 24-48 hours after treatment, you may notice that the skin changes it could feel tight and dry and some peeling may occur, your recovery cream will help to keep the skin hydrated. Do not pick any spots or flaky skin, avoid any physical excursion or exercise that will cause unnecessary blood flow. 

  

Waxing Aftercare

Please note- Some slight soreness, small bumps and erythema (redness) are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. these symptoms should subside over the next 24-48 hours.

Keep the waxed area clean and avoid heat & friction during the next 24-48 hours, this means;

*No hot baths or showers (cool luke warm water)

*No Saunas, hot tub or steam treatments

*No Tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or tanning lotions)

*No sport, gym or other exercise

*Avoid touching and scratching the area with unwashed hands

*Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools

to sooth and protect skin apply an aloe vera cream to the waxed area regularly for 3 days following your treatment, always wash your hands before applying product.

To Prevent ingrown hairs

Start a few days after your treatment, you can use a body brush and brush the body daily in upward stokes or use an exfoliating mitt or loofa in the bath or shower, also moisturise the area every day which will keep the skin supple and help new hairs to grow through normally.

You may also notice a small amount of re-growth after a week or so, it can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to get in a growth cycle that gives best results, hair needs to be 1/2 cm long before it can be successfully removed.

For best results please DO NOT shave between appointments.  

Tanning Pre-treatment & Aftercare
