Aftercare for Dermal Filler

  • Immediately after dermal filler treatment, there may be a slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation to the treated area. This is a normal response to the skin as a result of treatment and generally disappears in a few days.

  • The initial swelling for the lips and tear trough area may last longer.

  • Do NOT rub or touch the treated area until the next morning.

  • Do NOT consume alcohol or do strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.

  • It is recommended not to apply make up to the treatment area for 24 hours after the injection.

  • Try to avoid lying down for 6 hours after treatment.

  • It is recommended not to apply any pressure to the treated areas for the first few nights (please sleep on your back if possible).

  • For cheek fillers: It is recommended to avoid restrictive headwear, including goggles, sunglasses or motorcycle helmets for up to 4 weeks.

  • Lip Filler: Do not smoke for at least 24 hours after having lip injections. Even better, take this opportunity to give up smoking altogether. Do not wear lipstick for 24 hours.

  • It is recommended to avoid extended exposure to sun or UV light and extended exposure to extreme hot or cold temperatures including hot drinks (if your lips have been treated).

  • Do not use AHA, Retinols, Vitamin C therapy, Glycolic, Acids, Scrubs for 5 days after treatment.
