Fillers Pre-Treatment Instructions & Checklist:

PRE-FILLER CHECKLIST

Please refrain from having the following procedures at least two weeks prior to your filler appointment or your appointment must be rescheduled.

  • Dental work (e.g., cleanings, fillers, etc.)
  • Vaccinations (incl. Flu shots, and Shingles)

Please inform us if you have had any of the following a week before your filler appointment; depending on the severity, you may need to reschedule your appointment.

  • Cold or Flu
  • Sinus Infection
  • Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or Fish Oil

PRE-FILLER INSTRUCTIONS

  • Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (e.g., Ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve), St. John’s Wort, Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E, or Fish Oil (Omega 3’s) supplements for one week before treatment. These may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Tylenol is okay to use if effective and tolerated.
  • Avoid Alcohol 24 hours before the appointment, and 24 hours after treatment.
  • Take Arnica (available at our office) to help reduce bruising and swelling. It’s best to start the Arnica two days before the procedure (three (3) pellets UNDER TONGUE every eight hours). Avoid eating or drinking 15 minutes before and after taking pellets for best absorption. We will give you Arnica in the office before your treatment and will have you continue for two days after treatment.
  • Eat pineapple daily or take bromelain tablets (available in the vitamin section at the health food store) starting one week before your treatment and continue until receiving your treatment.
  • Please tell your doctor if you have experienced cold sores in the past. If injecting around the lip’s, medication may be prescribed or administered at the time of treatment to prevent a flare.
  • IMPORTANT: Do not schedule a massage, or participate in rigorous exercise activities, lift heavy items or use a snorkeling mask for 72 hours after treatment.
  • IMPORTANT: Do not FLY for 72 hours after treatment.
  • IMPORTANT: Do not have any dental procedures for two weeks after treatment.
