Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the provider has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you.

Patient Forms

No need to fill out paper forms! MDC Cosmetics patients use our PhreesiaPad when they arrive and complete the electronic check-in interview from the waiting room. Our digital solution collects full patient history, signatures for consent forms and insurance information. Patients can even make their co-payment or pay their outstanding bill.

Pre-Treatment

We are pleased that you have chosen MDC Cosmetics for your treatment. We encourage you to call the number listed above with any questions regarding your treatment. Please refer to the following pre-treatment instructions to optimize your outcome:

  • Please notify your provider of any changes to your medical history, medications or allergies prior to treatment.
  • If you have a history of cold sores we recommend starting a Valtrex at least 24 hours prior to any injections.
  • Discuss all allergies with your provider prior to treatment. A topical numbing cream is applied to the area prior to filler treatment that contains Lidocaine. The numbing agent will remain on the area for approximately 15-20 minutes. Some minor irritation from the Lidocaine may occur but should resolve shortly following the treatment.
  • Please discontinue the use of all Aspirin or Ibuprofen products at least 5-7 days prior to your appointment to minimize bruising. It is also beneficial to stop the use of herbal supplements such as but not limited to: Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Omega 3, Flaxseed Oil, Tumeric, Garlic, Ginseng, Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, and Black Cohosh.
  • **PLEASE NOTE: If NSAIDs are prescribed by a medical professional, you are required to seek advice from that provider prior to discontinuing any prescription medications.**
  • Bruising is very common after filler injections and may occur with Botox and Dysport potentially lasting up to 2 weeks. Understanding this will help you to better prepare for and appropriately schedule your treatment.
  • Any person who is pregnant, nursing, or trying to conceive should avoid any injectable treatments.
