Important guidelines before having a dermal filler treatment

juvederm-03-smIt is good to know what to expect before you undertake a dermal filler treatment.  Our nurses have been treating patients for over 18 years now and we have thousands of happy clients!

Most of our clients here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics like to arrive 15 minutes early for their treatment.  This enables the removal of make up and they can then have comfort cream applied to their treatment area.  This greatly helps prevent discomfort during the procedure.

It is not advisable to have  a dermal filler injection very close to an important social event, in case you have a bruise or some swelling.

Book your treatments at least two weeks before, depending on your healing process.  Please avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen for 24 hours before and after treatment.

After your treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness, a faint bubble like appearance and an itching sensation. This is a normal result of an injection.  These are temporary and generally disappear gradually over a period of 7 to 14 days.  If they continue or if any other reactions occur, please contact your nurse practitioner.

Avoid touching the treated area for 6 hours.  After that, light make-up can be applied and the area can be gently washed with soap and water.  If instructed by your nurse, gentle massage of the treated skin may begin 6 hours following the injections and should be conducted with clean scrubbed hands.  If you have pets, you should wash your hands before touching your treatment area.
