How Long After Sclerotherapy Should I Wait Before Having Smooth Shapes Done?

I had sclerotherapy today and want to start with smooth shapes ASAP but I am sore and I can't imagine I should get the smooth shapes done anytime soon. Is 7-10 days long enough? Please help.

I would wait a few weeks at least before trying SmoothShapes after getting Sclerotherapy.  

Good luck.

Cellulite Treatments After Sclerotherapy


If you are having the SmoothShapes done to the areas where you had sclerotherapy, I would wait 3 to 4 weeks before doing the treatment. I am rather conservative, but I wouldnt want anything to interfere with the success of your sclerotherapy nor would I want you to have unnecessary discomfort or damage from doing SmoothShapes too soon after sclerotherapy.
