Every day, thousands of people in the U.S. are making the decision to do something about the effects of aging. More specifically, injectable fillers are becoming some of the hottest, most popular treatments available in the cosmetic procedure marketplace.
In order to ensure that you receive the best results, it is important that you take the time to prepare before receiving injectable fillers.
- Talk to a Board-Certified Physician and Ask Questions
Overall, a board-certified surgeon is your best resource for the truth about preparing for filler treatments. As these individuals are experienced professionals, they should be able to tell you everything that you need to know about how to prepare for injectable fillers in your pre-treatment consultation.
Be warned about seeking advice from unknown individuals. Miscellaneous websites on the internet, for example, can be filled with a lot of information that can be incorrect if not coming from a knowledgeable source.
- Be Careful About Taking Medications and Treatments Before your Procedure
Two weeks prior to receiving your filler treatments, you will want to pay special attention to what you put in your body. Take care and avoid certain agents that may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection sites. Some of the most common medications that can bring on these effects include aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (such as Advil and Motrin), Vitamin E, Gingko Biloba, and even fish oil supplements!
While it may be okay to take acetaminophen, such as Tylenol, to deal with some of the swelling that may happen after your procedure, it’s best to consult with your surgeon to clarify the best plan of action for you.
- Be Good To Your Body
While it’s important to treat your body well every day, make sure to take care of yourself in the weeks leading up to your procedure. For example, taking healthy steps such as leafy greens in the weeks prior to your procedure will boost your body’s natural Vitamin K, which can reduce the appearance of bruising and swelling following your procedure.
These are just a few of the preparations you can take to boost the effectiveness of your filler treatment experience.
