Dermal Fillers Pre-Post Care:1) Dermal filler treatments typically consist of a few injections using a small needle. To minimize the chance of getting a bruise from the treatment, it is recommended that you stay off medications and supplements that may thin the blood. Common examples of these are listed below. Consult your physician before discontinuing any medications or supplements that have been prescribed or recommended for you for medical reasons.
|Supplement / Medication||Stop # Days Prior to Procedure|
|Aspirin or Aspirin Products||7 Days|
|Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, other NSAIDS||3 Days|
|Vitamin E||3 Days|
3) Other treatments, such as laser, Thermage, IPL, microdermabrasion, and peels, should not be done on the same day as Dermal Fillers. These treatments can stimulate blood flow to the skin which may increase the likelihood of bruising and swelling in the area.
4) No massages or pressure to be applied to the treated area for 6 hours after the procedure.
