What to Expect after Submission

  • Immediately following the procedure, the most commonly reported temporary side effects are redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, bleeding, scabbing, tingling, numbness, lumpiness, and/or a feeling of pressure or fullness at the sites and/or in the treated area(s).

  • Apply ice and pressure throughout the first 24 hours. Ice application can be for 10 minutes at a time, 3-5 times throughout the first 24 hours. This will help minimize swelling and pain.
