Pre and Post-Care Guidelines

Pre Treatment Advice and Documentation

Before attending your consultation be sure to have full details of any medication you may be taking, your practitioner will also be asking for a medical history and its important that you can provide a full and comprehensive account of any recent or past aliments.

Prepare any questions you wish to ask so that they are not forgotten.

Typical questions asked are:

  • How experienced is my practitioner?
  • Will I see the same practitioner each visit?
  • What happens if I don't get the expected result?
  • Will I have contact with my Practitioner out of hours?
  • How do I know that the product used in my treatment is of the highest quality?
  • Will it be me that ultimately decides how much or how little treatment I have?
  • Will I be under pressure to have treatment on the day of my consultation?
  • Will any side effects of treatment be explained to me?
  • Are there any hidden costs of treatment such as prescription fees?...

...and the list goes on, but these are some of the most important.

Before Botox and before facial filler treatment you should request a copy of our content form so that you can have time to consider the implications and side effects of treatment.

These can be mailed to you upon request

 

Guidelines for Botox and Azzalure Treatments

 

By having botox or Filler treatment with Tinkable you have chosen well, because we pride ourselves on our after care.

We offer you the opportunity for a review after every treatment. With Botox treatments your review will be booked at the time of your treatment, normally 14-21 days post treatment depending on the type of Toxin you may have had. With dermal fillers we ask that you allow at least 14 days to pass and all post procedure trauma has passed before requesting your review.

Reviews are a win-win process for both Tinkable and of course the patient.

It allows both parties to discuss the end result and the aesthetic outcome, any post procedures concerns, requests etc can be dealt with at this time. It also means that we must deliver what we said we would, Its not like in most other clinics where you never see the same practitioner twice or promises are made by a treatment advisor (sales person).

Below are a number of post treatment after care advice sheets relating to some of our more popular treatments, however some after care advice is very dependant on the individual and so cannot be shown on this page. But the following will give some indication.

Once you become a client with Tinkable, you will have in your possession a 24-hour call number.

Sometimes a question might arise that you forgot to ask, or you may have forgotten exactly what your practitioner said etc. If the number cannot be answered when you call a return call will be imminent. Please do not use this number to make bookings.
