The team at InMode has revolutionised cosmetic care by developing state-of-the-art non and minimally invasive techniques. Patients no longer have the factor in a lengthy downtime and recovery period when preparing for cosmetic treatment. In fact, many of InMode’s devices can be used for treatments that are conducted over your lunch break, meaning you can make it back to the office with fresh and glowing skin.
However, the fact remains that there are certain strategies you can follow to increase the effectiveness of your treatment. Your clinician will take you through what to expect during the procedure and how you can best prepare. In the meantime, here are some general points to consider when preparing for cosmetic treatment.
Things to Consider Before Your Appointment
Ahead of your appointment with your provider, consider these cosmetic treatment tips.
Schedule Procedures When You’re Healthy
Ideally, any time of cosmetic procedure, regardless of how invasive it is, should be scheduled when you’re healthy. Eating a balanced diet, exercising, drinking plenty of water and getting enough sleep are all things you can do to improve your general health and wellbeing, increasing the likelihood that you’ll be satisfied with the end results.
Learn What to Eat Before Treatment
Depending on the nature of your treatment, there may be certain foods and beverages you should steer clear of ahead of treatment.
These will be tailored depending on the treatment — in fact, some non-invasive options may not require this type of preparation at all. This factor is certainly something to discuss with your clinician ahead of time.
Stay Hydrated by Drinking Water
Many patients seek out cosmetic treatment in an effort to achieve radiant, hydrated skin.
While we can’t go past the power and performance of devices like the Morpheus8 and Forma, ensuring you drink enough water every day is a small thing you can do to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
This is true whether you’re preparing for cosmetic treatment or not — but drinking water in the lead up to any type of procedure is certainly a good idea.
Stop Smoking at Least Several Weeks Before Your Treatment
Smoking is one of the worst things you can do by your skin and plays a significant role in accelerating the natural ageing process. Smoking is known to cause wrinkles, skin damage, and even delayed wound healing, none of which will increase the effectiveness of cosmetic treatment.
If you want the best results possible, speak to your doctor about strategies you can use to quit smoking ahead of time.
Prepare a Space to Get Rest
While InMode’s range of cosmetic workstations and handpieces are non and minimally invasive, if it is your first time receiving any type of cosmetic treatment, you may want to give yourself some time to rest and recover.
Until you know exactly how your body will respond to treatment, factor in a space and time for a short recovery period. Your doctor can give you information about recovery periods for your specific procedure.
Follow All Recovery Instructions
Your clinician understands the InMode workstations inside and out and can give you detailed and tailored recovery instructions.
Follow these as closely as possible — doing so increases the likelihood that you’ll be happy with the end results.
Questions to Ask Your Aesthetician or Clinician Before the Procedure
Before you find a clinic that offers InMode treatments, it’s a good idea to come up with a list of questions you can ask the aesthetician or clinician. These questions might include:
- Are my skin goals achievable?
- What is your experience performing this procedure on people with my skin type?
- Does this procedure involve any downtime?
- How long will the results last?
- How can I maintain these results?
- In addition to this procedure, what can I do to help achieve my skin goals?
