Aesthetic Pretreatment Instructions

Neurotoxin Injections

(Botox, Jeauveau, Xeomin, etc.)

  • If you have a special event or vacation coming up, please keep in mind that you may want to schedule your treatment at least 2 weeks in advance. Results from the dermal filler and neurotoxin injections will take approximately 4 to 14 days to appear. Also bruising and swelling may be apparent at that time.

  • It is recommended to discontinue the use of Aspirin, Motrin, Ginkgo Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week before and after treatment to minimize bruising or bleeding. Please consult with your primary physician prior to discontinuing any medications.

  • It is recommended to discontinue Retin-A two (2-3) days before treatment to avoid any increased redness and irritation.

  • You need to be off antibiotics at least 2 weeks prior to your dermal filler or neurotoxin appointment. Depending on what antibiotic you are taking and the reason you are taking it could need up to 4 weeks, please check with your provider for further details.

  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. (All of these factors may increase risk of bruising and swelling).

  • Be sure to have a good breakfast or lunch, including food and drink, before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.

  • Notify your provider if you are pregnant, could be pregnant, or you are breastfeeding. Treatment will be postponed.

  • If you develop a cold / flu, cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. in the area to be treated prior to your appointment, we recommend that you please reschedule your appointment until it resolves.

  • Please, come to the appointment with a clean face and avoid wearing makeup.
