Before & After your Filler Treatment

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT

  • Immediately after your filler treatment, the most commonly reported side effects are temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within 2-3 days. Cold compresses may be used immediately after the treatment to reduce swelling.
  • Avoid applying make up to the treated area for 4 hours following treatment.
  • Avoid exercise for 24 hours.
  • Avoid facials or Light therapy treatments for 2 weeks.
  • Until the redness and swelling have resolved, avoid exposure of the area to intense heat (sunlamp or sunbathing).
  • If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that any stimulation of the area could contribute to another occurrence. If you are predisposed to cold sores, you will be provided with a prescription for Valtrex to prevent to risk of a breakout. Take the medication as directed.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements for two days after the treatment. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
  • If you feel small bumps in the treatment area, gently massage the product a few times per day. This should help the product disperse.
