  • Avoid exercise on the day of treatment

  • Stat hydrated before treatment

  • If you have a beard - please shave the night before ( or at least a few hours prior to appointment).

Aftercare Advice

  • Do not wear heavy make-up for 12 hours

  • No swimming, no facial waxing and no exercise for 24 hours

  • No sauna, sun beds or sun exposure. No botox, collagen injections or dermal fillers for 48 hours

  • Do not use any anti ageing creams, AHA's, glycolic, retinol or exfoliating products for 72 hours

At all times during a course of collagen lift:

  • wear minimum SPF 15, exposure to sun should be avoided. (UV is the number one external factor that accelerates the ageing process).

  • Regular moisturiser applications are vital to replenish moisture and prevent the skin from becoming dry and peeling.

Possible Side Effects:

If skin feels hot, splash with cold water, pat dry and moisturise regularly with a gentle, hydrating moisturiser.

Skin may appear red after treatment, especially if it is your first treatment. This is perfectly normal and any redness will generally subside within 72 hours.
