What is the best way to prepare for dermal fillers?
We recommend to stop taking natural blood thinners such as St. johns wart and fish oils 5 days prior to your procedure.
Afterwards the most common side effect of having dermal fillers are bruising, swelling and tenderness. So, plan to have these procedures when you have some downtime and no major social functions for 2 weeks to allow bruising and swelling to restore.
How much does it cost?
Dermal fillers are usually priced per 1ml syringe, but we do offer packages for full face rejuvenation, which can be discussed at your consultation appointment with Dr. Martina.
