QWO Pre + Post Care Instructions

2 Weeks Before Your Procedure:

  • Avoid consuming alcohol and/or smoking 2-days before your treatment and 2-days post-treatment.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications 10-14 days prior and 3-4 days post-treatment. 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 chance of bruising.
  • Consider taking Arnica tablets 1 week prior to injections to prevent bruising. Arnica can be found at any health food store. We have Arnica available at ENIC.
  • Days leading up to the procedure, be more aware of areas that bother you. This will assist us in marking you.

Day of Your Procedure:

  • 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.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing. Thong underwear is preferred if treating the buttocks.


  • Your procedure will last approximately 30 minutes depending on the areas treated.
  • You are welcome to bring entertainment: a phone, tablet, and/or earphones to listen to during the procedure.
  • You may drive to and from our center.

What to Expect:

  • Extreme physical activity and exercise should be avoided within the first 24 hours post-treatment. Elevating your core temperature and increasing your heart rate via exercise will cause more swelling.
