DERMAL FILLER PRE-TREATMENT

  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications for a period of at least 2 weeks before treatment as they can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.

  • Don’t consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to your treatment as alcohol may thin the blood and increase your risk of bruising.

  • Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event such as a wedding or vacation, since the results can take up to 14 days to appear.

  • If you have sensitive skin discontinue irritating skin products (i.e. Retinol) 2 days before and after your treatment. 

  • Avoid dental work for 2 weeks before your treatment

  • Reschedule your appointment at least 48 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the treatment area or if you are feeling unwell.

  • Book your workout before your treatment.

DERMAL FILLER POST-TREATMENT

  • Herbal supplements such as Arnica may help decrease bruising and swelling.

  • Do not touch, manipulate or massage the treated area unless directed by your physician.

  • Do not undergo facial/laser treatments or microdermabrasion after dermal filler injections for at least 10 days.

  • Avoid applying makeup for 24 hours.

  • Avoid strenuous activity for 48 -72 hours.

  • Avoid extreme heat (hot yoga, steam or sauna, tanning beds) for 48 - 72 hours. 

  • Avoid dental work for 2 weeks post-treatment.

  • Swelling, redness and bruising may occur, however, if you experience increased pain, bruising, swelling or discolouration of the skin, contact us immediately.
