Preparing for an Appointment with the Best Filler Injector in Maryland

Prior to undergoing dermal fillers, most women and men spend a great deal of time searching for the best filler injector in Maryland.

Once they find the right specialist and schedule an appointment, they may be unsure what steps they need to take before their visit.

If you can relate, continue reading to learn the dos and don’ts before and after injections.

Preparing for an Appointment with the Best Filler Injector in Maryland

Although cosmetic injections do not require a great deal a preparation, there are several things you should do before an appointment with the best filler injector in Maryland.

Approximately one week ahead of your visit, discontinue over-the-counter blood thinners – such as aspirin and NSAIDs (Advil and Motrin). At this time, it’s also a good idea to stop taking supplements, including St. John’s Wort, Gingko biloba, primrose oil, garlic, ginseng, and Vitamin E.

Two days prior, you should avoid using topical skincare products, including retinols and acid-based products. In addition, do not perform any type of hair removal, such as waxing, plucking, or depilatories, on the intended treatment area.

You should also start taking Arnica to help limit the chance of post-injection bruising.

Finally, the day before your appointment, avoid drinking alcohol.

Filler Post-Care Tips

Dermal fillers are a zero-downtime treatment and typically produce immediate improvement.

That being said, there are several precautions patients should take to reduce swelling and bruising and optimize filler results. These include:

  • Apply ice immediately after to reduce swelling
  • Take acetaminophen as needed for pain relief
  • Apply Arnica to injection sites to reduce bruising
  • Avoid exposing the treatment area to intense heat – such as saunas and hot tubs – until all swelling and bruising subside
  • Avoid rubbing or picking at the injection site
  • Avoid alcohol and strenuous exercise, which can exacerbate bruising
