How Long Until I Can Return To My Normal Activities After Body Contouring?
Non-surgical body contouring procedures are non-invasive. This means you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment, unlike more traditional surgical procedures, which call for all sorts of pre-procedural preparations, anesthetics, and bed rest.
With Thermage and VelaShape, the only post-procedural side effects are redness and mild swelling — but both typically subside within twenty-four hours after a procedure. To reduce the risk of bruising or other complications, avoid taking aspirin or sun tanning before treatment.
