Dermal Filler

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that helps facilitate the skin’s ability to stay hydrated. Hyaluronic acid fillers are body-safe clear gels that, when injected beneath the skin, can help to fill in facial wrinkles, restore volume loss, and refine your facial features.

Pre-Treament Instructions

  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)​

  • Avoid ibuprofen or any other anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment.

  • Bruising and swelling will be apparent for approximately 7 to 14 days.

  • Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.

  • If you have a history of cold sores please let your provider know. You would need to be on an anti-viral medication prior to treatment, as there is a risk for exacerbation. 

  • Please arrive with a clean face.

  • Discontinue Retin-A before and 2 days after treatment

  • Schedule your Dermal Filler and Botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from the Dermal Filler and Botox injections will take approximately 7 to 14 days to appear.

  • Tylenol is fine

  • Do not apply products that are potentially irritating for 2 days (retin-a, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, hydroquinone, etc). 

  • Avoid intense heat (sunbathing) or extreme cold for the first 2 weeks to avoid further inflammation to the area. 

  • Avoid laser, IPL, or skin tightening treatments of the area for at least 2-3 weeks, especially treatments that create heat in the dermis.
