Pre-Treatment Info

    Although there is no specific pretreatment required for fillers (other than skin testing with Artefill and rarely used collagen products)) the following precautions should be taken. Patients should discuss their medications and supplements with their injector. Aspirin, ibuprofen products and some vitamins and some herbal supplements should be discontinued to limit bleeding and bruising. Your physician will direct you as to which, if any medication should be discontinued and for how long. The skin in the treated area should be clean and free of any local skin irritation of infection at the time of treatment.
