MEDICATION PRECAUTIONS
precautions If you want to be pro-active to decrease bruising during injection treatments such as Restylane, Botox and Mesotherapy; the following prescriptions and non-prescription medications may be discontinued for at least two weeks prior to having any injection procedure to ensure that your platelets have time to recover. These specific preparations have been found to affect your blood by decreasing the amount of time it takes for coagulation and decreasing the amount of red blood cell production which can lead to increased bruising. If you are taking any antiarthritics or anticoagulants for control of a medical disorder, you will need to consult your treating physician for recommendations as to the alternatives. If you must take these medications, appropriate determinations as to whether they may be a detriment during the procedure may be discussed.
