   2. Do not exercise the day before or for 48 hours after the Morpheus8 RF Microneedling treatment.

 

   3. Avoid medications such as: Aleve, Advil, cold remedies, Vitamin E or aspirin 3 days prior to treatment.  (Any type of blood thinners)

 

   4. Avoid Retin-A, chemical peels, injectable fillers or Botox 2 weeks prior to treatment.

   6. Day of treatment, wear comfortable clothing.  NO JEWELRY.

 

   7. Notify us if you have or have had cold sores in the past.  We cannot perform the procedure if a cold sore is active.

 

   8. If you have open cuts, wounds, abrasions or active acne or cold sores breakouts, we cannot perform the procedure.

Post Treatment Instructions

 

 

What to be expected:                                                                                                                                 

 

  • Day 1: Skin will be erythematous (red) and flushed after treatment, depending on the intensity of the treatment. Pinpoint bleeding may occur. Do not apply makeup on treated area for 24 hours. ( After 24 hours, If the skin is still red, it is best to use a tinted moisturizer instead. )

  • Day 2: A red or pink hue persists like a moderate sunburn. Swelling and slight bruising may be noticeable on the second day. Minor needle stamping grids may be visible. Apply moisturizer as needed on the treated area.

  • Day 3: Skin can be pink or normal color. If there was any swelling, it will subside. The skin can feel dry or feel tight. Skin ‘can’ break out with a few milia (small white bumps under the skin) or even a mild acne flareup (If you have acne-prone skin), but it should subside quickly.  Your skin is healing from the inside out.  It will continue healing and rebuilding collagen/elastin for the next 4 weeks.

 

Post Treatment Home Care:

 

   1. Wash with a gentle cleanser using your fingers only. Gently massage the face with lukewarm water. Do not scrub or use a washcloth or a Clarisonic brush. Use your fingers, gently.  Do not use exfoliating products for 72 hours.

 

   2. May feel like a mild/moderate sunburn, so cold compresses may be applied following treatment for comfort. ** If neck or décolletage are treated, the redness might last slightly longer.

 

   3. Apply 1% Hydrocortisone cream if you choose or Benadryl spray or gel on treated areas to reduce itching or redness if this should occur.

 

   4. Do not exercise for 24 hours after treatment.  Avoid strenuous exercise for 2 -3 days after treatment.

 

   5. Avoid saunas, steam rooms, hot baths or showers until redness is gone.

   6. Continue to avoid sun exposure to the treatment areas and apply a broad-spectrum sunblock with SPF minimum of 30+.  Apply it at least 30 minutes prior to sun exposure and repeat after every two hours of sun exposure.

   7. After 3 days clients can return to regular skin care products.  Makeup may be applied after 24 hours, if needed.

 

   8. Avoid waxing, facials, botox, injectable fillers or any other skin care treatment two weeks after treatment.

 

   9. New cell regeneration requires at least 6-8 - 8 oz. glasses of water a day (if you already drink that- increase by 2 - 8 oz. glasses)

 

  10. If skin becomes painful, swollen, or inflamed,  please notify us immediately and/or doctor or pharmacist.

Booking Policies/Cancellations/No Shows

We respect your valuable time and strive to maintain a timely schedule each day. In order to do this, we request that you are punctual and inform us if you are going to be late or if you are unable to make your appointment as soon as possible.  While we realize that sometimes lateness is unavoidable, we try to adhere to the schedule and will most likely have to reschedule you if you are more than ten minutes late for your appointment.

 

Please understand that all it takes is one late appointment in the morning and every appointment thereafter is affected negatively. We like to have ample time to devote to you for your service and we often have appointments scheduled back-to-back, which makes it impossible to make up for lateness. Therefore, we do not run over scheduled appointment times.  We absolutely will not rush through your treatment(s).

 

Please note that all appointments must be paid in full with a credit or debit card via our secure on-line booking system.

 

Your appointment time is reserved for you and only you. 

 

When appointments are cancelled within 24 hours or less, there is a no-call/no show, or we are unable to fill this time slot, in order to minimize these occurrences, you are responsible for the full cost of the service booked.

 

No Refunds.  You may reschedule, if necessary.  You may use your paid treatment(s) within 6 months of this signed contract.  You may also transfer the payment (if you no longer want the Morpheus8  RF Microneedling) for another type of facial/facial treatment(s) within the 6 months, with no reimbursement or credit from the payment.

 

In the event that you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please text 615-414-7939 with as much advance notice as possible and at least 24 hours in advance of your service to avoid any charges for your service. Our normal operating business hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10:00am – 4pm.

An email or text message is an acceptable method to communicate your cancellation and MUST be confirmed by us. ** Please note that verifiable emergencies will be handled on a per case basis.

 

If you have any type of contagious illness, we request that you reschedule your appointment immediately, even if it is within the 24-hour cancellation period.  We will reschedule it to a later day and time.  Please do not show up for your appointment if you are not feeling well. We will not be able to provide your service.

 

We strive to offer you the highest quality of care and appreciate your patronage!

Thank you for understanding.
