Dermal Filler Precare

  • Do not use any of the following 7 days before your treatment: NSAIDS (advil / naproxen), aspirin, omega-3, garlic.

  • If you are using any blood thinners (medication) discuss this with your injector before your procedure.

  • Do not consume alcohol the day before or on the day of your treatment.

  • Inform your injector before your treatment if you are prone to getting cold sores.

Dermal Filler Aftercare
