Dermal Filler Pre & Post Treatment Instructions

AVOID: Alcohol, caffeine, aspirin, motrin, gingko biloba, garlic, flax oil, cod liver oil, vitamin A, vitamin E, fatty acids,niacin supplements, spicy foods, or cigarettes for at least 3 days to one week before your treatment. This is to reduce the incidence of bruising after these procedures.

DO NOT: touch, press rub or manipulate the implanted areas for the rest of the day after treatment. Avoid kissing, puckering and sucking movements for the rest of the day as these motor movements can undesirably displace the implanted dermal filler material. Irritation, sores, and post-operative complications including scarring are possible if you manipulate the dermal filler implants.

VOID: Vigorous exercise and sun and heat exposure for 3 days after treatment.

DISCONTINUE: Retin-A 2 days after treatment.

It is best to wear no makeup or lipstick until the next day. Earlier can cause pustules.
One side may heal faster than the other side.
You may expect some bruising and swelling around the areas that were injected. Apply ice for the first hour after treatment for ten minutes on and ten minutes off.
You must wait 1 week before enhancements.

***Please report any redness, blisters, or itching immediately if it occurs after treatment***
