Pre and Post Care Information
Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, green tea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen and NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after the anti-ageing injections. Facial tenderness is also common for up to 4 days but should not require more than mild analgesic.
It is normal to experience some pulling for the first 3-4 days after having PDP Cog threads but uncommon for this to last more than a week. It may be best to avoid very chewy foods for the first 2 days. Cold Pack on face as tolerated and required. Any asymmetry after 14 days may be managed with a further thread or filler.
