Filler Post-Treatment Instructions
  • We recommend that you drink 8 glasses of water per day after treatment. Be aware that you must guard against infection by keeping the skin clean, especially in the first 48 hours. You may gently apply a small amount of makeup after 6 hours. Avoid excessive rubbing or manipulation of the skin. The filler injected is quite malleable for the first few days – DO NOT press on the treated area and if possible, try to sleep on your back.

  • The use of Tylenol (acetaminophen) is permitted. Arnica gel or tabs can be helpful to minimize bruising/swelling. Aspirin, alcohol and heavy exercise are permitted after 24 hours unless there is significant bruising.

  • After filler treatments, you may experience some minor swelling, redness, itching, bruising, headache or tenderness. This will typically last for less than a week. It is normal to feel the sensation of newly placed filler for several weeks.

  • For at least 2 weeks after treatment, avoid prolonged exposure to hot or cold temperatures (For example, hot tubs, winter sports or prolonged sun exposure.

  • We would like to see you 2 weeks after treatment in order to assess the outcome of the injections and repeat your personal photos. Additional injections may be undertaken at an additional fee. Please report any bruising/swelling/skin problems that persist for more than 1 week or any other symptoms that cause concern to our office.

  • Over the course of the next few weeks, the Filler will settle into position and absorb water, improving the initial effect. Fillers usually last for 6-18 months depending on the area being treated and the total amount used and your body’s unique metabolism.

Enjoy your younger, more refreshed looking face!
