Profound®, the non-surgical facelift, is quickly becoming one of the most popular med spa treatments on the market. Known for its incredible results with minimal downtime, many people are thrilled to have another option for rolling back the clock.
With the right Profound prep, you should enjoy excellent results.
However, much like a surgical procedure, there are some preparation steps you need to take. Here are three do’s and don’ts for the week before your Profound treatment.
Do Hydrate Well Every Day
Step one of how to prep for Profound treatments is to drink 64 ounces of water each day in the week before treatment. Hydrated skin responds best to Profound.
Don’t Indulge Your Bad Habits
Alcohol, tobacco and non-nutritious foods should be off limits in the week before treatment. Alcohol and tobacco harm your skin, while good nutrition prepares your body to respond to treatment.
Do Discuss Your Prescriptions with Your Provider
Some medications can cause complications when paired with Profound treatment. Be open with your provider about any prescriptions you are on.
Don’t Take NSAIDs
While you might be tempted to take over-the-counter pain medications just in case Profound causes discomfort, taking the wrong ones will cause bruising.
Do Disclose Your HSV Status
The herpes virus and Profound do not interact well. However, you can still be treated. You just need an antiviral medication first.
Don’t Catch any UV Rays
Finally, a big “what not to do” before Profound is spend time in the sun or in a tanning bed. Avoid UV rays as much as possible for 5 days before your treatment.
