Dermal Fillers Pre-Treatment
Dermal filler cannot be administered to any patient who is pregnant, breastfeeding or has a severe allergy to bee stings.
Please avoid using alcohol, Aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications (eg. Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aleeve etc.) for 2 days prior to treatment to minimize the risk of bleeding and bruising. Consider stopping your fish oil or Vit E supplements for a few days prior as well as they may increase your chance of bruising.
On the day of your treatment, wash your face thoroughly with an antibacterial soap if you have it and do not apply foundation or makeup to the area to be treated.
Please ensure that you have something to eat and drink one hour prior to your appointment.
Treatment with fillers can cause swelling and bruising, particularly around the lips. We suggest to book your appointment for filler treatment at least 5-7 days prior to an important event.
If you have any questions or concerns prior to your treatment, please do not hesitate to contact us.
