Following our Pre-Care Policies is necessary and required for all appointments. Failure to follow these instructions can result in complications and we may be forced to reschedule the appointment.
Do not plan any special events for at least one month after your treatment. There may be swelling and bruising for 1-2 weeks following your appointment and it may take up to a month for tissue to ultimately settle.
If getting lower facial treatments, please ensure that you do not have any dental appointments for 2 weeks before or after treatment.
If you are currently taking aminoglycoside antibiotics and are seeking Neurotoxin (Dysport) injections, please call to reschedule as we will be unable to perform this treatment.
If you work in a healthcare setting that requires an N-95 or similar, tight-fitting mask, please know that wearing such masks is not recommended for 2 weeks after receiving under-eye, cheek, nose, or jawline filler. If this will not work for you, please consider rescheduling.
Hydrate frequently, especially if you are being treated with dermal fillers. Fillers draw water to the surface and dehydration can severely minimize results!
Begin avoiding blood-thinning medications, foods, and supplements (unless they are prescribed to treat a health condition) to reduce chances of bruising and swelling.
Blood-thinning items include:
If you usually use pain relievers, please use Tylenol and have it on hand as it does not thin blood. Of course, please avoid Tylenol if it is contraindicated with any of your medical conditions or medications.
Do not consume any alcohol.
Take Arnica (unless you are allergic or it is contraindicated with any medications/medical conditions you have, including high blood pressure). Arnica can be purchased in our office, at Vitamin Shoppe, or on Amazon. Please follow the directions on the label and do not take it if it is contraindicated with any of your medications/medical conditions.
Do not come on an empty stomach. Please arrive ready for treatment (clean face, no makeup, hair secured away from the face).
After your treatment has fully settled, please reach out by phone (610-393-1253) or email and let us know if there is anything we can do to improve your results or experience.
