If your reflection in the mirror every morning is showing more and more signs of aging, you might be considering facial rejuvenation treatments, such as microneedling or dermal fillers. While microneedling benefits provide great results, combining microneedling with dermal fillers over the course of a few weeks or months can give you optimal results.
Laser treatments or microneedling first can help you prepare your skin for fillers and help you turn back the clock on the signs of aging.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatments to Consider Before Dermal Fillers
Skin rejuvenation treatments, such as microneedling and laser resurfacing, utilize your body’s natural healing response to stimulate collagen and elastin. This increase in collagen and elastin helps treat skin concerns, such as acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone, and skin texture. When you choose to have one or both treatments before dermal fillers, those fine lines or scars you hope to target with the fillers will already see a reduction.
The skin tightening and collagen remodeling these treatments produce can alter the type, amount and location of dermal fillers necessary to achieve the results you desire.
Prepping Your Skin for Fillers
Microneedling or laser treatments are a good way to get your face ready for dermal fillers, but there are some other things to consider. To prep your skin for fillers, you want to make sure that you keep your skin in optimal condition. This includes regular skincare, including sunscreen, and drinking water to provide hydration. Before your filler appointment, avoid drinking alcohol, as well as taking blood thinners, like aspirin and ibuprofen, and certain supplements, such as vitamin E and fish oil. These can contribute to bruising after filler treatment.
