Skinvive After Care Recommendations

Skinvive may be repeated as needed or as recommended by your provider. 
  • Redness, swelling and bruising are all expected and common after Skinvive treatment. Bumps may also be present for a few days. 
  • Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area unless instructed by provider.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or anything that increases your heart rate for 24 hours. Avoid extensive sun or heat for 72 hours (no sauna, hot tub).
  • Avoid consuming excess amounts of alcohol or salt to prevent excessive swelling.
  • You may apply a cool compress or ice pack for 15 minutes each hour while awake to reduce swelling.
  • Use Tylenol (acetaminophen) for discomfort. No NSAIDs (ibuprofen, aspirin) for 24 hours as they can increase/prolong bleeding or bruising.
  • Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling. You may want to consider taking Arnica to help with the bruising and swelling.
  • Avoid wearing makeup the day of procedure.
  • Sanitize your phone before putting it to your face and try to talk on speaker phone as much as you can day of. Wait a minimum of two weeks before dental work, immunizations, or other aesthetic treatments.
