The Countdown is on…

The festive and New Year period is arguably the year’s busiest season in our social calendars and one we want to look our best for.
Many of our treatments require some downtime so we want to help you plan, to make sure you are looking your best for whatever events your season may hold.
Here is our handy guide for the downtime required with treatments at MediZen:
Dermal Fillers
Fillers need time to settle and you may have slight bruising. It’s best to plan treatment a few weeks before your event.
Medical Skin Needling
Your skin will be red and peel for up to a week after treatment. With camouflage make-up, you will be able to resume normal activities within a week but it’s best to allow a few weeks before an important event.
Your skin may need time to heal and settle, so for optimum results, we recommend visiting us at least a week in advance.
Your skin may be slightly red after for a few minutes so you can usually get a HydraFacial the day before a big event!
With Perk eye or face treatment there may be slight redness for a few minutes. With Perk lip treatment you will see immediately plumper lips! You also get Perk homecare for a top-up before your big event.
Laser Thread Vein Removal / 3JUVE
After treatment, your skin will be red and some swelling can occur. Depending on your concern, multiple sessions are sometimes required so you may need to plan this type of treatment a few months ahead.
You may be tender and swollen for a few days after, allow for at least a week before any big event.
Laser Hair Removal
After a Laser Hair Removal session, you are able to resume normal activities right away but there may be some slight redness. Results are usually best after a course of six sessions spaced six weeks apart so it’s best to plan at least a year ahead!
Treatment side effects will be discussed with you fully in your consultation, these timelines are a rough guide and will depend on your individual concerns and what you hope to achieve.
