QWO Treatment

Pre - QWO Treatment

  • 2 Weeks before treatment:
    • Avoid consuming alcohol/or smoking 2-days before your treatment and 2-days post-treatment.
    • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications 10-14 days prior 3-4 days post treatment. Medications such as Aspirin and other NSAIDS, vitamin E, fish oil, Gingko Biloba, Ginseng, and St. John’s Wart should be avoided as they can increase the chance of bruising.
    • Consider taking Arnica tables 1 week prior to injections to prevent bruising. Arnica can be found at any health food store.
    • Days leading up to the procedure, be more aware of areas that bother you. This will assist us in marking you.
