How can I best prepare for my filler appointment?
For appointments, it is best to avoid alcohol or blood thinners for at least 48 hours before treatment to decrease the bruising risk. This includes aspirin, ibuprofen, flax/fish oil, oral vitamin E, and prescription blood thinners. Drinking a lot of water. Arnica montana can be used pre-and post-treatment to minimize swelling and bruising. This comes in a topical gel or oral pellets and can be purchased at health food stores or Amazon.

What is the downtime for Filler?
Volume containing hyaluronic acid is injected into the lips to add height and hydration to the lips and correct asymmetry. Using Filler, the shape of the lips can be optimized to flatter the patient's features. We always perform a thorough consultation included with your appointment so we can meet your custom goals. Lip flip can be added on for $40. Available as a half or full syringe. Lip filler lasts on average 1-2 years.
What are the post-treatment restrictions for Filler?
Avoid vigorous exercise for 24-48 hours. No alcohol or blood-thinning medications/ supplements until bruising is resolved. No facials or massages for 7-14 days. Keep injection sites clean. Sleeping on your back when possible can prevent indentation of the Filler. Avoid firmly massaging the treatment area. Avoid excessive heat, such as saunas, for 48 hours. You may ice the area once numbing has worn off (usually about one-hour post-treatment) to decrease swelling and bruising. You may continue taking Arnica montana until bruising and swelling have resolved.
