Dermal fillers have become a popular part of cosmetic dermatology, offering patients the opportunity to smooth out lines and wrinkles and refresh their appearance without anyone realizing that “the work has been done.” To ensure you get the most out of your procedure, there are certain tips you should follow before and after receiving dermal fillers. Five days before treatment, take arnica, an herbal product that reduces swelling and promotes healing. For two days before you receive dermal fillers, don't take any over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil & Motrin), aspirin, or Aleve as these medications can increase the chances of bleeding, bruising, and complications during and after injections. When you come to the office for your procedure, make sure your face is clean to reduce the risk of infection.
Your doctor will clean it again before the injection. You may need to wait about an hour after the procedure to apply makeup. When you do, use clean brushes and new cosmetics. To get the best results from your dermal fillers, it is recommended to have a facial treatment 2 to 4 weeks after receiving them.
This will help replenish and stimulate your skin's collagen for a healthier and younger look. By following these tips on dermal fillers, you can ensure that you get the most out of your procedure and achieve a natural-looking result.
