Minor bruising post-filler treatment is normal. Injecting facial fillers can cause a little bruising or red spots, although experienced injectors can minimize these effect. Excessive bruising after treatment can not be treated (other than using makeup); therefore, patients should be consoled on preventing bruising before treatment. Defyne Aesthetics recommends to its patients:
- No Aspirin, Ibuprofin or similar pain killers one week before treatment. Paracetamol is recommended as a substitute.
- No Vitamin E1 supplements one week before treatment.
- No alcohol consumption two days before treatment.
- Take one pill of Arnica the morning of the treatment.
