No pre-tests are required for any of the fillers Dr. Behr uses. Certain precautions should be taken if possible before your treatment. Avoid aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, Vitamin E and St. John’s Wort for one week. Treatment can be done if one of these medications is taken, but they might increase your risk of bruising. Also if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, let Dr. Behr or her staff know so she can prescribe a medication to minimize recurrence.
