Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like substances used to restore volume, smooth out lines, and enhance facial contours. They can plump lips, soften wrinkles, and rejuvenate the skin. With immediate results and minimal downtime, they provide a non-surgical solution for achieving a more youthful and refreshed appearance. 

Pre-Treatment Instructions 

  • The patient should be in good overall health. A full medical, surgical, and dental history must be performed on all patients for optimal results. The patient should not be taking any current antibiotics, immunosuppressants, or blood thinning medications for at least two weeks prior to the dermal filler treatment. 
  • Any vaccinations should be scheduled two weeks prior to or two weeks after the dermal filler procedure. 
  • If you develop a cold sore, blemish, rash, etc., prior to your appointment, you must reschedule. Let us know if you are prone to cold sores – a pre-operative medication may help prevent cold sores after treatment. 
  • If you have a special event or vacation coming up, schedule your treatment at least two weeks in advance. Patients should not travel within 48 hours following a dermal filler treatment in case of complications. Plan appointments accordingly. 
  • Avoid taking Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids, ideally two weeks before dermal filler treatment and three days following the procedure. 
  • Discontinue Retinols or any prescription strength face creams two days before and two days after treatment. 
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours prior to treatment in order to prevent thinning of the blood, which will lead to an increase in bruising and swelling after your procedure. 
  • Please try to come to your appointment with a clean, make-up-free face. 

Post-Treatment Instructions 

  • Do not touch, massage, or manipulate the areas treated with dermal filler for at least 24-48 hours following the procedure. For dermal filler in the lips, avoid straws, smoking, and excessive lip activity for the next 48 hours. You can cause migration of dermal filler if the areas are manipulated, which could lead to poor results. 
  • Avoid Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or other essential fatty acids ideally two weeks before treatment and for a few days following. These medications/supplements will thin the blood and can cause more bleeding, bruising, and swelling. 
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine 24 hours before dermal filler treatment. These will also thin the blood, leading to an increase in bleeding during the procedure and bruising and swelling afterward. 
  • Avoid vigorous exercise and heat/sun exposure for 24 hours following dermal filler treatment. 
  • Discontinue any Retinol or prescription-strength topical face creams two days before and two days after dermal filler treatment. It is best to wear no makeup or lipstick until the next day. Earlier use can cause infection. 
  • Expect some bruising and swelling around the areas that were injected. Arnica tablets can be taken to help. It is recommended to take sublingual (under the tongue) pellets three times a day. Ice can also be applied for 10-15 minutes at a time to help with excessive swelling.
  • You must wait until your 2-week follow-up appointment before any enhancements. Do not love or hate your results for at least two weeks! 
  • Please report any excessive pain or swelling, blanching of the skin, redness/irritation, warmth of the skin, blisters, dark excessive bruising, or anything that looks or feels unusual to your injector ASAP.
