DERMAL FILLERS

Avoid make-up for up to 12 hours after treatment

Avoid sunshine, sauna and steam rooms for two weeks after treatment

You may have temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites which may be present for up to two weeks after treatment

The filler may appear lumpy for the first 5-7 days after treatment due to swelling and the healing process, this will settle down in due course

Avoid applying pressure to or massaging the treated area for 2-3 days following treatment

Gently apply cool compress to extreme swelling

No smoking after treatment, and avoid excessive alcohol consumption

Arnica gel or tablets from pharmacy can assist in healing

 

Sleep on your back the evening after the procedure, to ensure filler is not disrupted during sleep.

The duration of the effect is very individual, skin type and muscle activities are factors which can influence the longevity of the dermal filler. Combination treatments or successive treatments may be required for optimum effect.
