PRE-FILLER INSTRUCTIONS

PRE-FILLER CARE

  1. STOP using aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen, Aleve, vitamin E, gingko biloba, fish oil, green tea, St John’s wort, or other anti-inflammatory medications, if okay with primary physician. These medications should be discontinued 2 weeks prior to the procedure as they increase the risk of bruising. For mild discomfort or headaches, Tylenol is preferred.

  2. DO NOT drink alcoholic beverages 24 hours before your treatment.

  3. Expect that you may have some bruising and swelling after the procedure. Auriderm topical gel may be applied 2-4 times daily for 3 days prior to the procedure and immediately afterwards. Over the counter Arnica supplements (available at supplement stores, Whole Foods, etc.) have also been shown to decrease bruising. To receive the benefits from Arnica, please start taking supplements 3 days prior to treatment.

  4. Inform the nurse or physician if you have a history of medication allergies, history of anaphylaxis, orany other medical conditions.

  5. Make sure to schedule your treatment at least 4 weeks prior to an important event.
