1. To Avoid Bruising
To minimize the chance of a bruise, we advise that you should stop taking tablets that affect blood clotting a week before, such as:
- NSAIDS (ibuprofen, voltaren)
- fish oil
- evening primrose oil
However, if you’re on aspirin or blood thinners for a medical reason like stroke or DVT or any heart conditions, please do not stop taking them.
2. Tell us about illness
Please let us know if you are ill on the day or within 2 days of your treatment. This includes a cold, cough, sore throat, flu, bladder infection or fever. We can’t use dermal filler if you’re unwell, so we may need to reschedule your appointment.
3. Timing with other facial treatments
To have filler you’ll need to be fully recovered from treatments such as laser resurfacing, dental procedures, or surgery. Usually one month is required. Please contact us for advice if you’re unsure.
4. Minimal or no makeup
If possible, we suggest minimal or no makeup at the time of your dermal filler treatment. Your face will be thoroughly cleansed with complete removal of all makeup before your dermal filler treatment to ensure the best hygiene and safety for your treatment.
