FAQ – MEDISPA
1. What is the recovery process like, post-treatment?
Downtime after a medical spa cosmetic procedure will range between a few hours to a full day. The recovery time depends on the procedure chosen and the areas being treated. Local anesthesia is offered if any sedation is required. The majority of our patients will not need time off from work and often to return to work on the same day.
2. How long does the procedure take?
A cosmetic procedure is fairly quick. Length of body treatment typically ranges from 15 minutes to an hour. A procedure done at the same time as another may take additional time. Injectables are routinely quick, however, laser treatments may take longer due to waiting for anesthetic cream to take affect.
3. Will these Med Spa treatments cause me to miss work?
Most patients do not miss any time at work and can return to their normal routine on the same day. Combining a procedure with another may necessitate a longer recovery time. Always consult your physician regarding any questions or concerns.
4. How long before I can resume normal exercise?
Strenuous activities should be avoided post-treatment for most cosmetic and some aesthetic treatments. The risk of bleeding, bruising and swelling increases significantly. An appropriate healing time must be allowed. Recovery period restrictions depend on the patient’s medical condition and the procedure performed. Lighter activities, i.e. slow walking, can be performed after anesthesia has worn off. Heavier activity, like running, cycling, heavy lifting or yoga are allowed once 2 weeks have passed. It will take six weeks before the patient can participate in contact sports. Always consult your MedSpa director or physician there are ever any questions or concerns related to post-treatment.
5. Can cosmetic Med Spa Treatments be combined with other facial surgery?
Definitely. In addition to offering MedSpa services, SB Aesthetics is an aesthetic facial plastic surgery center. Many of our patients will prefer to combine the aesthetic treatments that they receive with a facelift when they receive non-surgical medical spa treatments, such as Botox . Med Spa treatments can be combined with one another as well, as many patients will often receive dermal fillers in tandem Botox Cosmetic.
