Dermal Fillers: Pre-treatment Instructions

There are numerous cosmetic procedures people undergo to improve their appearance. One option people may choose is getting Dermal Fillers at Ästhetik Rx in Bowmanville. Dermal fillers are widely available. At Ästhetik Rx we exclusively use Teosyal dermal fillers.

What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable chemicals. They can be used to fill out wrinkles, frown lines, and laugh lines. They can also be used for contouring of the face and to enhance facial symmetry.

Dermal fillers are made of various chemicals. Each type has different purposes and consistencies. They can hydrate the skin, plump the skin, and encourage collagen production.

Depending on your needs, you and your technician will go over the options to see what will work best. It's possible they may suggest a combination of fillers for different areas of the face.

How To Prepare For Dermal Fillers
If you plan to get dermal fillers,here is what you should do:

One Week Before
1.Stop taking blood thinning medications
2. Stop taking supplements such as: ginseng, ginko biloba, St. John's Wort, Vitamin E, and garlic

Two Days Prior
1. Stop the use of retinols and anti-aging products
2. Do not wax,pluck,or use hair removal cream on the treatment area
3. It's optional, but taking Arnica may lessen bruising

1. Do not get dermal fillers if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
2. If you have a history of cold sores, it's important to let the technician know beforehand.

Benefits Of Fillers
Dermal fillers appeal to people because:

Clients about Ästhetik Rx

  • I went for a consultation at Asthetik Rx. I have always wanted Botox to erase some lines on my forehead but was always very nervous. The place is very clean and modern. The Staff was very knowledgeable and explained the procedure from start to finish, and also answered all my questions and concerns. The results were amazing and the price didn’t break the bank either. Excellent place!
