    • Avoid any blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, and fish oil for 10 days before the procedure.  However, do not stop any prescription medication without first talking to your doctor.
    • If you have a history of cold sores, we will discuss the need for medication at the time of your consultation.
    • Arnica tablets can be taken to help prevent bruising or swelling. They are available for purchase at our office for your convenience.
    • Following your treatment, it is best to avoid strenuous exercise for at least 14 days. Light exercise such as walking is okay, but make sure to discuss it with your provider first.
    • For some time after treatment, we do not want you making excessive facial movements, smoking, using straws, or opening your mouth wide to prevent any distortion of the facial muscles. 
    • No make-up can be worn for 3 to 5 days.
    • Further recommendations including skincare products and activity recommendations will be provided at your consultation visit.
