Pre-Op: Botox & Fillers

 Botox: PRE - TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS 

 

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, by reducing some possible side effects associated with the injections.  We realize this is not always possible; however, minimizing these risks is always desirable.  

  • Patient must be in good health with no active skin infections in the areas to be treated

 

  • Patient should not be needle 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 / blood thinning medications ideally, for a period of two (2) weeks before treatment.  Medications and supplements such as Aspirin, Vitamin E, Gingo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and can increase the risk of bruising/swelling after injections.

 

  • Schedule Botox® appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which may be occurring, i.e., wedding, vacation, etc. 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: PRE-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

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 results.

Testimonials

Thank you for allowing me to take a moment to comment on the excellent care I recently received from Dr. Bruce Abdullah of the Grand Dental clinic. As a registered nurse and health care professional, I realize the importance of seeking skilled and experienced practitioners when considering any kind of medical or dental procedure. Having recently returned to the Midwest, I researched providers in my area. I was extremely pleased to find that Dr. Bruce Abdullah had 23 years of experience, and 16 years of teaching experience at the University of Illinois. Dr. Abdullah recently performed 4 gum grafts for me, and I was absolutely amazed at the gentleness and precision of his technique. I experienced minimal pain following the first two grafts, and was actually able to go to work the evening following my second set of grafts. I felt that I was able to receive world class dental care close to my home in Channahon. I was most appreciative of the pain free care I received both during and following the procedures. I would highly recommend Dr. Abdullah to any patient considering a dental procedure, and I would like to thank Dr. Abdullah and his staff for their excellent technique and considerate care approach.

Submitted with much appreciation and respect,

Ann. L, BSN

Dear Dr Abdullah,

In 2000 and 2001, I had two different implants fail and cause me quite a bit of discomfort. While I knew that I needed yet another implant, I was hesitant and put it off for several years. However, my daughter, Dr L. (a general dentist) encouraged me by speaking so highly of your skills. Knowing that she is straightforward to a fault, I scheduled an implant with you on October 31st, 2012. I simply couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. The procedure caused me no pain and healed in less than a week with no bruising or discomfort of any kind. Thank you so much for performing the implant with such skill. In addition, your mannerism put me at ease. I can and will recommend you as a gifted periodontist.

Sincerely,

Linda L.

We can only consider ourselves the luckiest people because of having such a dear doctor like you. You have given us back the joy of living with healthy teeth. Thank you!!!
With warmest thoughts and best wishes to you.
