Complete guide to filler aftercare

Whether you’re new to the world of fillers or a seasoned pro, proper care is vital for optimal results. Join us as we explore practical tips and precautions to ensure a smooth recovery and prolonged benefits from your treatment. Let’s dive into the specifics of post-filler care and ensure your skin stays looking its best!

Immediate Aftercare 🕐

  1. Avoid Disturbing the Area
    While the treated area may feel slightly different at first, it’s important to avoid touching, rubbing, or applying pressure. Doing so could potentially displace the filler or even lead to complications.
  2. Stay Hydrated
    Hydration is a fundamental component of healthy skin. Drinking plenty of water is particularly vital after dermal filler treatment, as these injectables work by attracting water molecules, thereby amplifying their volumising effect.
  3. Avoid Intense Physical Activity
    For the first 24-48 hours post-treatment, it’s best to minimise vigorous exercise. Such activities could increase blood flow, potentially causing the filler to move from the treatment area.

Aftercare in the First Week 🕓

  1. Addressing Swelling and Bruising
    Mild swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site are common side effects. Use a cold pack on the area to alleviate these symptoms. It’s advisable to avoid aspirin and alcohol.
  2. Limit Sun and Heat Exposure
    Sun and heat can worsen swelling or discomfort post-treatment. It’s recommended to shield the treated area from the sun, and if necessary, use a high SPF sunscreen.
  3. Gentle Skin Care Routine
    Continue with a gentle skincare regimen. Treat yourself to a selection of high-quality, non-irritating products.

Long-term Aftercare 🕕

  1. Regular Touch-ups
    For sustained results, regular touch-ups are crucial. The frequency will vary depending on the type of dermal filler used and your body’s metabolism.
  2. Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle
    A healthy lifestyle, including balanced nutrition, hydration, regular exercise, and a consistent skincare regimen, can enhance the longevity of your dermal fillers.
  3. Regular Consultations
    Keep regular appointments with your beauty expert for follow-ups. They can guide you on any additional care you might need and plan for future treatments.
