How to Prepare for Your First Dermal Filler or Wrinkle Relaxer Appointment

By: Our Team


Deciding to invest in anti-aging treatments is a significant move toward maintaining a youthful appearance. At Beautiful Skin Denver in Denver, CO, we are dedicated to providing our clients with top-quality dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers. We understand you may have questions before your first procedure, so we've put together a list of key steps you can take to prepare.

Research your treatment options

Your first move before any treatment should be thorough research. The world of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers offers a variety of options tailored to different skin needs. For instance, dermal fillers can be excellent for adding volume to your lips and filling in wrinkles, while wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® are more targeted at easing fine lines. This initial research will give you a baseline understanding of what to expect. To get the most accurate and personalized advice, consult the team at Beautiful Skin Denver, who will answer all your questions.

Schedule a consultation

A consultation is more than just a quick chat; it's your opportunity to get personalized, expert advice. At Beautiful Skin Denver, we offer in-depth consultations where we evaluate your skin type, discuss your skin concerns, and recommend the most appropriate anti-aging treatments for you. This meeting is also your chance to get a full breakdown of the cost, duration, and expected outcomes so you know exactly what you're getting into.

Consider timing and lifestyle

Timing is everything when it comes to dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers. First off, understand that the results may take a few days to show. While most of these treatments require minimal to no downtime, strenuous exercise immediately after the procedure is not recommended. If you have an important event coming up, such as a wedding or an anniversary, it would be wise to schedule your treatment at least two weeks in advance to give your skin ample time to heal and the results to fully manifest.

Follow pre-appointment guidelines

Your experience at our med spa in Denver, CO will be enhanced if you adhere to the pre-appointment guidelines we provide. This could range from avoiding blood-thinning medications and supplements like aspirin and fish oil to not consuming alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before the procedure. These guidelines are designed to minimize potential side effects like bruising and to maximize the effectiveness of your rejuvenating skin treatments.

What to expect after the procedure

The post-treatment phase is critical for ensuring your skin heals correctly and the results last as long as possible. You may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising after the treatment, but these typically subside within a couple of days. Beautiful Skin Denver will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, which often include keeping the treated area clean and avoiding makeup for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
