There are things you can do before being treated with Restylane ® to improve your experience and results –Avoid using St. John’s Wort, high doses of vitamin E supplements, aspirin, or nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen, for one week prior to treatment because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site –For patients prone to facial cold sores, treatment can cause a recurrence; a medication may be prescribed to reduce your risk
