Frequently Asked Questions and Important Tips for Maximizing Effectiveness and Appearance Before and After your Dermal Filler Injection
- Avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, St. John’s Wort, oral Vitamin E, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) in the 24 hours prior to your treatment as they may promote the risk of bruising and bleeding in the injection area.
- If you are currently taking anticoagulation medications (Warfarin, Coumadin, Heparin, Lovenox, Enoxaparin, Lepirudin, Refludan, Ticlopidine Ticlid, Clopidogrel, Plavix, Tirofiban, Aggrastat, Eptifi- batide, Integrilin), discuss the use of these medications with your healthcare provider prior to your treatment. You may or may not be a candidate for treatment with cosmetic dermal fillers.
- If you are prone to cold sores (oral herpes simplex), take your prescribed medication (Famvir, Famciclovir, Valtrex, Valacyclovir, Acyclovir) as prescribed in the 24 hours prior to your treatment.
- Avoid applying pressure or touching the treated area for 6 hours after the procedure. The area can then be gently washed with a cleanser and water.
- Immediately after the treatments, you can apply an ice pack, as there may be mild swelling. You should use a cold compress if needed.
You may experience redness and bruising from 1-7 days after the treatment. Avoid any trauma to the skin for up to 2-5 days, such as bathing with very hot water, strenuous exercise, or massage.
- Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin to achieve your best results. If there is any crusting, apply antibiotic cream and notify your provider. You can use an antibiotic ointment for 2-3 days or longer.
- Makeup may be used after the treatment has stopped swelling unless there is epidermal bleeding. It is recommended to use new makeup to reduce the possibility of infection. Keep the area moist. Any moisturizer without alpha-hydroxy acids will work.
- Avoid tweezing, waxing, bleaching or laser services at the site of the treatment. Do not use any irritants such as Retin-A, Benzoyl Peroxide or astringents.
- Avoid vigorous scrubs, exfoliation or facial treatment in the area of treatment for 72 hours.
- Avoid Microdermabrasion, Microneedling or Vibradermabrasion for 72 hours after cosmetic dermal fillers.

- Avoid manipulation of the area following the injection unless specifically instructed otherwise by your healthcare practitioner.
- For pain/discomfort, use cool packs and over-the-counter analgesics (Acetaminophen, Tylenol).
- Oral or topical Arnica Montana, an herbal supplement, may help with reducing swelling caused by cosmetic treatments. DO NOT take Arnica Montana if you have liver or kidney problems.
- Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, St. John’s Wort, oral Vitamin E, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) may promote the risk of bruising and bleeding in the injection area.
