Dermal Filler Treatment Care Instructions

Post Treatment Care Instructions for Dermal Filler

  • Do NOT massage or apply pressure on the injected area for 48 hours.
  • Avoid rigorous exercise activities, excessive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages on the day of treatment.
  • No facials or saunas for 48 hours after treatment.
  • You may gently wash with soap & water.
  • You may apply make-up (preferably pharmaceutical grade mineral makeup) as usual.
  • Drink plenty of water for the next few days.  It helps improve the outcome of the Filler.
  • There may be some mild swelling. You may apply ice packs for 15 minutes every 1 hour, if needed.
  • There may be some bruising. It will resolve like any other bruise in about a week. You may apply Arnica cream to help with healing.
  • We recommend Tylenol if you have any discomfort. Avoid aspirin as it may worsen bruising.
  • It is normal to feel firmness or small lumps at the injection site at first.  These will soften over time.
  • If there is a visible lump, after 48 hours, you may gently massage to smooth it out.
