Advice For Aesthetic Treatments

As you approach your appointment at Sorella, these steps will guarantee a smooth and hassle-free experience.

At our aesthetic skin clinic in Kent, the hydrafacial is one of our favourite treatments.

The Run Up To Your Appointment

  • Avoid Blood Thinning Substances - In the week leading up to your appointment, steer clear of substances like aspirin, ibuprofen and anything else that can thin the blood.

  • Stay Hydrated - Hydration is the foundation of healthy skin. Ensure you are well-hydrated in the days leading up to your treatment.

  • Stop Taking Herbal Supplements - Avoid herbal supplements such as garlic, vitamin E, ginko biloba, St. John’s Wort and omega-3 capsules.

  • Prepare For Bruising - Bruising is normal following an aesthetic procedure. However, you can minimise its extent by taking arnica tablets 48 hours prior to your appointment.

The Day Of Your Appointment

  • Arrive Relaxed - We want your experience to be both enjoyable and stress-free. Arrive a few minutes early so that you can settle in and embrace your upcoming rejuvenation. 

  • Arrive Makeup Free - Come to your appointment with a clean face, free of make up. This ensures that Danni and Georgi have a clear canvas to work with.​

Advice For Skincare Treatments

Before you give your skin the care it deserves, here are some guidelines you should follow.

The Run Up To Your Appointment

  • Stop Topical Retinoids - Up to 48 hours before your skincare treatment, it’s important to halt the use of retinol. Similarly, you should stick to a gentle skincare routine to keep your skin in optimal condition. 

  • Sun Protection - Prevent sun damage by applying adequate suncream. This will help your skin maintain its health for the transformative journey ahead.

  • Avoid Waxing - If your treatment involves an area that you would usually wax, opt for alternative hair removal methods like shaving.

  • Ask Questions - Feel free to ask any last-minute questions or discuss your concerns before the treatment begins. After all, we’re here for you.

The Day Of Your Appointment

  • Cleanse & Moisturise - Start your day with a gentle cleanse and moisturise your skin. This will ensure that your skin is prepped for treatment. 

  • Discuss Your Concerns - Whether you have last-minute questions or want to address any concerns, make sure you talk to us before your treatment begins.

Depending on the treatment, we may recommend waiting a specific period before applying makeup. However, we’ll guide you on this throughout your post-treatment care.
