Frequently Asked Questions

Will I bruise from my anti-wrinkle or filler treatment?
The L8NBS practitioners are fully qualified and pride ourselves on being at the forefront of new treatments and techniques, ensuring the best results through the least invasive ways. In spite of this, bruising can still happen. The face and body are made up of thousands of arteries and veins underneath the surface of the skin, which makes knowing exactly where they are, virtually impossible, as every individual’s anatomy slightly varies.

Sometimes bruising can not be avoided, but our practitioners at the Late Night Beauty Salon will do everything in our power to prevent this. There are ways in which our clients can assist in preventing bruising, through changes in lifestyle choices. These changes should be done before, and after we administer their treatments.

Please see below steps you can take to help prevent bruising:

* Anica
Anica is a plant used as a homeopath treatment, specifically for the care of bruising, focusing on the reduction of pain, swelling and discolouration. Anica can come in small pallets – which are to be taken 4 hours before and after treatment, by dissolving 2 tablets under the tongue and repeat every 4-6 hours, until symptoms are relieved.
Anica also comes in a cream, which should be applied on and around the treated area, three times a day.
* Cold press
Directly after treatment, patient should apply a cold press.
* Alcohol
The consumption of alcohol should be avoided 48 hours before and after treatment takes place.
* Caffeine
The consumption of drinks containing caffeine such as coffee and teas, should be avoided 48 hours before and after treatment takes place.
* Exercise/Sun Bed/Sun Bathing/Sauna
Exercise, sun bed/sun bathing and the sauna should be avoided for at least 48 hours before and after treatment takes place.
* Water
Increase water intake before and after treatment.

In light of the above, if you are getting ready for an event, we suggest doing your anti-wrinkle/filler treatments 2 weeks minimum before, just to allow the face to settle from any potential bruising and/ swelling before your big day.
