Prescription and Homeopathic Medications that May Cause Bleeding or Bruising

During non-surgical and surgical facial rejuvenation in Charlotte, we want to minimize bleeding both during and after the procedure.  During a non-surgical procedure like Botox, Dysport, or injectable fillers, (Restylane, Perlane, or Juvéderm) bleeding from the injection may cause a bruise.  During surgery, bleeding can make the surgery more difficult and create bruising.  At Carolina Facial Plastics, we strive to minimize downtime and bruising.  We want our patients to know the prescription and homeopathic medications that thin the blood and interfere with the body’s ability to clot.  These should be avoided 10-14 days before any procedure.

 

Common medications include:

–          Coumadin

–          Plavix

–          Heparin

–          Fish Oil

–          Vitamin E

–          Vitamin C

–          Garlic

–          Ginger

–          Ginkgo

–          Ginseng

–          Green Tea

–          Omega 3

–          Feverview

–          Nonsteriodal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s)

  • Aspirin
  • Advil
  • Motrin
  • Ibuprofen

–          St John’s wart

–          Warfarin

–          Alka-Seltzer

–          Pepto-Bismol

–          Alcohol

 

A good rule is to avoid herbals that start with “G” (Garlic, ginseng etc.)

 

If you have a headache or other pain, Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe to take.  This will not increase your chances of bleeding.

 

This list is not inclusive.  If you have questions about whether a specific medication, either prescription or homeopathic, is safe to take before a procedure in Charlotte, please call our office.
