Pre/Post Treatment Guideline: QWO

2 Weeks Before Qwo Procedure

  • Accordingly, avoid consuming alcohol and/or smoking 2-days before your treatment and 2 days post treatment.
  • Additionally, avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications 10-14 days prior and 3-4 days post-treatment. Afterward, medications such as Aspirin and other NSAIDS, Vitamin E, Fish oil, Gingko Biloba, Ginseng, and St. John’s Wart should be avoided as they can increase the chances of bruising.
  • Afterwards, consider taking Arnica tablets 1 week prior to injections to prevent bruising. Also, arnica can be found at any health food store. We have Arnica available at ENIC.
  • Altogether, days leading up to the procedure, be more aware of areas that bother you. This will assist us in marking another one of your problem areas.

Day of Your Procedure

  • Basically, avoid shaving, laser hair removal, electrolysis, waxing threading, and use of depilatory creams the day of your procedure.
  • Do not apply creams or lotions to the area being treated because it will not be helping in application.
  • Before treatment, wear loose-fitting clothing. Besides loose-fitted clothing, thong underwear is preferred if treating the buttocks.

Procedure for QWO:
