Patients can return to their usual daily activities immediately after the injections. There may be some bruising and swelling, but this can usually be avoided by following simple aftercare tips. The effects of the treatment typically begin to show within a few days, and can last several months, depending on the individual. Regular treatments will extend the lifespan of the results.
