We accept a number of insurances for medical visits. Please scroll to the bottom of this page for an overview of the plans we accept. If you have any questions you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I reduce the chance of bruising after my filler or botox appointment?
Refrain from blood thinners, including aspirin and ibuprohen 10 days prior to injections. Refraining from caffeine and alcohol can also help reduce bruising as they are also blood thinners. Fresh pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that reduces bruising, so eating pineapple both before and after can help. Bromelain can also be taken as a supplement in pill form. Lastly, arnica tablets taken both before and after treatment can reduce bruising.
If I need a biopsy or something removed from my skin, can this be done in your office?
