How To Prepare For Dermal Fillers

Smooth and moisturised skin, plumped features, softened lines and wrinkles… Is there any skin wonder that dermal fillers can’t achieve? Here at our Inverness skin clinic, it’s one of our top treatments, and it’s easy to see why. Our clients love how quick and easy treatment is, and how soon they see results. It’s also easy to prep and manage skin both before and after treatment, which we’ll cover in today’s post. So, if you’re interested in dewy, youthful, smooth skin, dermal fillers could be the treatment for you.

Getting ready for treatment

The first step to having dermal fillers here in Inverness is a consultation. It gives us time to get to know each other, so treatment feels more personal on the day. And, of course, we’ll put your mind at ease by talking through all the pros and cons of your dermal fillers, so you know you’re making the best choice for you. We might also recommend other procedures which could help give you the results you’re looking for, or conversely, if we don’t feel dermal fillers are right for you, we’ll be clear, open and honest. After all, we want all our clients to love their results!

A few days before

* First off, avoid any blood thinners, which could cause, or worsen, side-effects like bruising or swelling. This includes pain relief like aspirin and ibuprofen.

* It’s also a good idea to check in with us (or your GP) about any supplements you might be taking too, for similar reasons.

* We recommend avoiding putting products on your skin, or using any hair removal treatments, prior to treatment.

* In the final 24 hours, avoid drinking alcohol.

On the day

We ask our clients to arrive without make-up and will use numbing agents to ensure your dermal filler treatment is as comfortable as possible. We’ll also advise you further on any aftercare you may need to follow, but as a general rule, follow the pre-care instructions, keep out of the sun, and avoid heat treatments (such as spas or saunas).

Maintaining your results

We do all we can to help our clients achieve gorgeous, glowing, youthful skin. We’d love to help you on your good skin journey, too – wherever you are! Rest assured that we’ll be with you, every step of the way, to help achieve the results you’re looking for and offer ways to maintain and prolong them for the future.
