Dermal fillers can be used for temporary line and wrinkle removal or lip, nose or cheek enhancement. They are placed under the surface of your skin to restore the natural contours of your face or lips that were lost with aging, expressions, smoking, or drinking with straws.
As with most injections, patients should avoid aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, e.g. Advil, Vitamin E, ginseng, garlic, and alcoholic beverages 48 hours prior to treatment as they will increase the risk of bruising at the injection site. Results and longevity of the product are highly dependent on the above pre-treatment precautions and proper aftercare.
