Before the procedure, we will have a detailed consultation to learn more about your medical history and preferences. If you’ve had allergic reactions to fillers or injectables in the past, we would not recommend treatment. It’s also best to wait until after pregnancy or breastfeeding to start or resume fillers. If all looks good, we will proceed with the treatment. Dermal fillers can take as little as 15-30 minutes and is often referred to as a ‘lunchtime procedure.’
In the days leading up to treatment, avoid over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication and supplements like ginseng, Ginko, garlic, and Vitamin E. Do not consume alcohol on the day of treatment. Immediately after treatment, avoid sun tanning, tanning beds, saunas, and strenuous exercise. Use an ice pack for excess swelling and avoid picking at the injection site.
