Learn How to Prepare for Your Non-Surgical Process with Dr. Truesdale
Prepare for Your Appointment
Dr. Truesdale offers a wide variety of non-surgical solutions to help you achieve your aesthetic goals, such as Fillers, Botox, PRP injections, and RF-microneedling.
It’s no problem if you don’t know exactly what you’d like to get done, and you certainly don’t need to come prepared with the brand or type of treatment in mind that you’d like. After you share your goals, Dr. Truesdale will offer his expert suggestion on the best non-surgical solution for you.
For most non-surgical procedures, there is no need to schedule a separate appointment for a consultation. Dr. Truesdale will give a short but informative consultation prior to the procedure, so that you can learn about the procedure and be treated in one (1) 30-minute or one (1) hour appointment!
If you are scheduled for Fillers:
Do not take aspirin (ASA, Excedrin) or anti-inflammatory medications (Motrin, Ibuprofen, Advil, Excedrin, Naproxen, Anacin,etc) for one
(1) week prior. These medications can cause increased bruising and bleeding. Tylenol is fine to take.
Try to avoid alcohol, as well as anti-aging topical products, and hair removal procedures for two days prior to your appointment.
If you are scheduled for Botox or Dysport:
Do not take aspirin (ASA, Excedrin) or anti-inflammatory medications (Motrin, Ibuprofen, Advil, Excedrin, Naproxen, Anacin,etc) for one (1) week prior. These medications can cause increased bruising and bleeding. Tylenol is fine to take.
Ideally, do not drink alcohol for one week prior, as it can increase the chance of bruising.
