Things You Should Not Do Before And After Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Don’t:  Take Blood Thinners

It’s important not to take blood thinners or Aspirin, Vitamin D and Fish Oil a few days before your anti-wrinkle injections.  This will help avoid bruising and improve the healing process. Alcohol and caffeine also act as blood thinners so avoid them 12 hours prior to your appointment.

Don’t:  Wear makeup to your appointment before any injections to avoid risk of infection.  Your doctor will clean the skin with alcohol or an antiseptic.

Don’t:  Apply anything that may contain bacteria to your face.  Cosmetics are not completely sterile so it’s best to avoid for 24 hours following an injection.

Don’t:  Exercise rigorously after getting an injection.  Perspiration can introduce bacteria into the injection site, increasing your risk of infection.

Don’t:  Get chemical peels, microdermabrasion, facials etc. for 24 hours.

Don’t:  Get anti-wrinkle injections if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

*Call your doctor if you experience any side effects from you anti-wrinkle injections.
