Do come to your appointment with no make up.
Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hrs prior to treatment. Alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising. It would be better if you don't have alcoholic drinks more than 72 hrs.
Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for at least 1 week before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, gingko biloba, ginseng, St. John's wort, omega 3/fish oil supplements, ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS) have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending. While results from dermal fillers are noticeable immediately, results from neuromodulator treatment will take approximately 4 to 14 days to appear (results vary per individual's response and adherence to post treatment instructions).
Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hrs in advance if you have a rash, cold sore, blemish or if you are experiencing a cold or viral illness symptoms. REPORTS OF ALLERGIC TYPE REACTIONS WITH COVID VACCINATION AND FILLERS HAVE BEEN REPORTED BUT ARE RARE.
If you have a history of cold sores, please let Dr. Stewart know as you can be prescribed antiviral medication prior to treatment .
Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chance of getting lightheaded during treatment.
PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING are contraindicated and you will not be treated.
Schedule dental cleaning or dental work at least 4 weeks before or after your dermal filler appointment. This is not necessary when just getting neuromodulators.
You need to be off antibiotics at least 2 weeks prior to your dermal filler or neuromodulator appointment. Depending on what antibiotic you are taking and the reason you are taking it, you could need up to 4 weeks. Please check with Dr. Stewart.
