Dermal fillers are a great choice for anyone who is looking to feel as good about their outside appearance as they do about their inside. For those who feel that laugh lines and bags under their eyes are making them appear older than they should, Botox injections or tear through corrections are powerful treatments to aid you in feeling your best.

These treatments are ideal for those who are looking to erase wrinkles and laugh lines or simply brighten up their look. But what do you need to do to prepare for a dermal filler treatment? At NewDermaMed we have helped countless clients achieve results with dermal fillers. Below, we will detail what you should know about and how to prepare for dermal fillers.

Do I Need to Do Anything to Prepare for my Treatment?

You don’t need to do much to prepare for dermal fillers, but you may wish to consider doing the following to reduce bruising and swelling.

  • Avoid medications such as Aspirin, Motrin and Ibuprofen which can be blood-thinning.
  • Avoid topical products such as retinol or anti-ageing creams.
  • Avoid irritating procedures such as waxing or hair removal in the area
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages a day before treatment.

All these factors should be discussed with your care provider as you may have other factors to consider based on your own personal circumstances.

What Should I Do on the Day of Treatment?

Your care provider will give you their directions on what you should do on the day of your treatment. Most providers will ask that you arrive with a clean face and not wear makeup.

What Can I Do to Promote Healing?

Dermal fillers typically don’t require extensive healing. You may experience some redness, swelling or bruising in the area of your treatment but this should subside. In order to reduce your chances of bruising you can consider avoiding alcohol and strenuous activity. Consider taking it easy after your treatment and try not to irritate the area of your treatment after it has been completed. Always speak with your service provider about aftercare for your treatment as well as what adverse effects you should consider watching out for.

How Can I Choose A Great Service Provider?

When it comes to choosing a great service provider for your dermal filler treatments, it is always best to go with a professional. A professional clinic such as NewDermaMed ensures that you will be cared for by qualified professionals who are using the appropriate products. Always have a consultation with your care provider before your procedure and don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Your best preparation for a dermal filler treatment is to be well informed about the treatment. Always take the time to ensure you understand what the treatment entails, what you should do to prepare for your procedure as well as what you should do after. Also make sure you and your care provider discuss realistic expectations of results and ensure that you understand how long your under-eye fillers, lip fillers, or Botox treatments should last.
