    Understand that any type of injection increases the risk of bruising, bleeding, and/ or swelling to the area treated that may take anywhere from 2-14 days until symptoms disappear. Taking certain precautionary measures can decrease the risks of these symptoms happening to you, but are not a guarantee. Please read the following tips we have provided and consider them when scheduling your treatment.

    In order to minimize the risk of possible side effects and complications of injections please follow these simple steps:

    Pre-Treatment 

    • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
    • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible, for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
    • Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from the injections will take approximately 4 to 7 days to appear. Also bruising and swelling may be apparent in that time period. 
    • If you have a history of cold sores please let your provider know, they may put you on an anti-viral medication prior to treatment.
    • Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.
    • You are not a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

    Post-Treatment 

    • Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area. Unless instructed by the provider.
    • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
    • Avoid extensive sun or heat for 72 hours.
    • Avoid consuming excess amounts of alcohol or salts to avoid excess swelling.
    • If you have swelling you may apply a cool compress for 15 minutes each hour.
    • Use Tylenol for discomfort.
    • Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling.
    • Take Arnica to help the bruising and swelling, start at least 2 days prior to injections. If you have swelling you may apply a cool compress for 15 minutes each hour.
    • Use Tylenol for discomfort.
    • Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling.
    • Take Arnica to help the bruising and swelling, start at least 2 days prior to injections.
