Brand new to Amélie? We literally can't wait to meet you! Whether you are here for a consult or planning a same-day treatment, here are a few tips and tricks to help you have an amazing amélie experience.
BEFORE your appointment
If you are planning on getting any injectables (Kybella, Botox, or Dermal Fillers), bruising is possible. We work very hard to avoid it, but even with the best techniques... It happens. Please drink lots of water and avoid alcohol for the few days leading up to your appointment. You can also take Arnica tablets (an over-the-counter oral herbal medication) per package instructions, or apply Arnicare (an over-the-counter topical herbal ointment) to the treated area; either option will help to minimize bruising. If you are regularly taking Aspirin, Ibuprofen, fish oil, and Vitamin E that was NOT recommended by your physician, you can back off on these medications as another way to avoid bruising (ideally 2 weeks prior to your injection appointment). If you normally wear makeup, no need to remove it before your appointment! We will take care of you from start to finish. If you are scheduled for a CoolSculpting treatment, please eat a filling, high-calorie meal beforehand! Although you will be watching Netflix or napping during your treatment, your body is still working hard... Please fuel it!
DURING your appointment
When you arrive at Amélie, please check in at the front desk. We have drinks and snacks available for you before your appointment… Enjoy! If it's your first time at Amélie, please arrive 5-10 minutes early. We'll give you an iPad and have you answer a few quick questions before your appointment begins. That way, we have more time during your appointment to talk about YOU and your goals!
Once your appointment begins, it's our mission to not only provide you with awesome results, but to make you comfortable as well. We have refreshments, blankets if you're chilly, music for relaxation, or Netflix for entertainment. Truth be told... You may never want to leave. We totally understand!
AFTER your appointment
If you received an injectable treatment, we recommend avoiding all strenuous activity for the first 4 hours. Also avoid any activity that would put pressure on your face such as a massage, a nap, or waxing appointments. We will apply a moisturizer and sunscreen before you leave your appointment. If possible, avoid applying makeup for a few hours to avoid causing blemishes.
We will always contact you after treatments to check in on how you are feeling! Please give us a call, text, or shoot us an e-mail if you have any questions or concerns during your recovery. We are here to help!
