Treatment Instructions

Thank you for your business with Central Utah Aesthetics. In an ideal situation it is prudent to follow some simple guidelines before treatment that can make all the difference between a fair result or great result. These suggestions also reduce some possible side effects associated with the injections.

We realize this is not always possible; however, minimizing these risks is always desirable.

Botox (Botulinum Toxin)

  • Patient must be in good health with no active skin infections in the areas to be treated
  • Patient should not be need phobic
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment. Alcohol may thin the blood which will increase the risk of bruising.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medications for a period of two weeks prior to treatment.
  • Medications and supplements such as Aspirin, Vitamin E, Gingo Bilboa, St. John’s Wort, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and can increase the risk of bruising/selling after injections.
  • Schedule Botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which may be occurring (ie. wedding, vacation, etc. It is not desirable to have a very special event occurring and be bruised from an injection which could have been avoided.

Dermal Fillers

A few simple guidelines before your treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one.

  • Patient should be in good overall health. A full medical and dental history must be performed on all patients for optimal result.
  • If you develop a cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. prior to your appointment you must reschedule.
  • If you have a special even or vacation coming up, schedule your treatment at least 2 weeks in advance.
  • Let us know if you are prone to cold sores – a pre-operative medication may help prevent cold sores after treatment.
  • AVOID 24 hours before your treatment: Alcohol, caffenine, motrin, gingko biloba, garlic, flax oil, cod liver oil, vitamin A, vitamin E, fatty acids, niacin supplements, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, or cigarettes. This is to reduce the incidence of bruising after these procedures.
  • Discontinue Retin-A two (2) days before and two (2) days after treatment.

The CoolSculpting® procedure is a non-invasive procedure that is intended to change the appearance of the treatment area by delivering controlled cooling at the surface of the skin to break down fat cells that are just beneath the skin. This procedure is not a treatment for obesity or a weight-loss solution. The CoolSculpting procedure does not replace traditional methods such as diet, exercise or liposuction.
