Injectable Dermal Fillers Treatment

PRE & POST TREATMENT in an ideal situation it is prudent to follow some simple guidelines before treatment that can make all the difference between a fair result or great result, by reducing some possible side effects associated with the injections. We realize this is not always possible, however minimizing these risks is always desirable.

  • Patient must be in good health with no active skin infections in the areas to be treated
  • Patient should not be needle phobic
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment Alcohol may thin the blood which will increase the risk of bruising
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory / blood thinning medications ideally, for a period of two (2) weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as Aspirin, Vitamin E, Gingo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and can increase the risk of bruising/swelling after injections. This is more important prior to dermal filler treatment, as fillers have a higher risk of bruising associated with their injection than Botox®
  • Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event

Dermal fillers are injected into your skin to fill lines and restore lost volume, enhancing your facial contours and lips for natural-looking results. They’re injected into the deeper layers of skin at the site of sunken areas creases, scars or to smooth and fill out the area for a firmer, more youthful appearance.


Many different treatments are often used at the same time with dermal fillers or other cosmetic procedures for an all-over smoothing of wrinkles and facial lines and restoring of lost volume. For example, Botox Cosmetic® treatments may be used on forehead wrinkles, while a dermal filler may be better used to treat lines at the mouth area.


Follow-up treatments are usually required to maintain the effect. For instance, hyaluronic acid fillers (Juvederm®, Restylane™ and Perlane®) last up to 12 months. Keep in mind that everyone’s skin is different, the timing of any additional wrinkle treatment will vary from person to person. When repeat treatments occur over time, either the interval between appointments becomes longer, or less product is required to achieve the same results, or more areas can be treated with the same amount of product.


After your initial dermal filler treatment, you should notice visible results immediately.
