Pretreatment require: You can undergo injections such as perlane, radiesse, juvederm, or Restylane (dermal fillers) when you do not have active cold sores and are pre treated with an antiviral (acylovir) prior to the injections. Seek the advise of a board certified plastic surgeon.

Perlane (dermal fillers): Cold sores are not a contraindication to filler injections. Have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
