Pre- & Post-Treatment Tips

  • If you wear makeup to your appointment, we'll need to remove it before your treatment in order to get a clean canvas.

  • Nervous for your first time? Bring a friend! Planning a date day for your filler treatment makes your experience twice as fun.

  • If taken pre-treatment, arnica and bromelain can help reduce post-treatment swelling and bruising. You can also take Tylenol.

  • Avoid alcoholic beverages the night before your appointment. It can make skin more susceptible to bruising.

  • It's best to avoid aspirin and NSAIDs (Advil, Motrin, Aleve) for a week before your treatment to help reduce bruising.

  • You are not a candidate for these injections if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Cold packs are your friend. Use them liberally for 8 hours after your treatment to help reduce swelling.

  • Avoid exercise for 24 hours after your treatment. And facials are a no-go for at least 2 weeks.

  • You may lie down after fillers, but please avoid laying on your face (even the sides of your face).

  • It’s important to stay hydrated! Be sure to drink plenty of water after your treatment.


What's the difference between fillers and botox?

While both treatments address signs of aging, dermal filler adds volume and "fills" wrinkles, while Botox and other wrinkle relaxers temporarily relax facial muscles to reduce the appearance of lines.

What's the downtime? Can I go back to work?

One of the things that makes dermal fillers so great is there's little downtime. There's no reason you can't go back to work afterwards, although keep in mind that you may experience some redness, swelling or bruising.

Will it hurt?

We use a topical anesthetic before making injections to help minimize any discomfort during the treatment. We also use an icepak before and after. You can also take Tylenol before and after to help reduce any pain. You may experience bruising and swelling, which can take 1-2 weeks to go away. Therefore, we don't recommend scheduling your appointment right before a big event.

What Should I Avoid After Treatment?

After your treatment: No exercise/working out for 24 hours; no facials for 2 weeks. Try not to touch the area excessively for the first 24 hours, except to apply arnica gel. And you may want to avoid salty foods and alcoholic beverages as they can contribute to swelling.

When Will I See Results?

You'll start to see results almost immediately, and can expect to see full results in about 2 weeks.
