We would always advise to consult with a healthcare provider or a dermatologist before applying any new product post-augmentation to ensure it's safe and won't interfere with the results of the procedure.
Ensure you are using pure, high-quality Aloe Vera gel. Some over the counter products labelled as Aloe Vera may contain additives or preservatives that might irritate sensitive post-procedure skin.
