Before Dermal Filler Treatment
Avoid using aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen), St John’s Wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements as these may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
Talk with your healthcare professional if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores. He or she may prescribe a medication to minimize recurrence.
If you are a person that bruises easily, you can take a dose of Homeopathic Arnica (found at supplement stores) the night before, immediately prior to procedure, and another immediately after procedure, and every 6 hours as needed. Topical arnica can also be used on bruises to speed up the healing process.
