The dos and don’ts of dermal fillers

Beauty treatment with dermal fillers

In cosmetic dermatology, dermal fillers have been popular for some time. That’s because fillers can look very natural when applied by a trained professional. Lines and wrinkles can be smoothed out with a simple technique that won’t be noticed by anybody but the patient themselves. To get the most out of your dermal filler treatment, follow these dos and don’ts.

Pre- and post-treatment of dermal fillers

Take the time to read and understand the following instructions, as this will ensure that you are prepared for the procedure and reduce any potential risk.

Remove all your makeup before your appointment because we’ll have to do that anyway.

Pregnant women and nursing women should avoid dermal fillers. It’s best to wait until the baby is no longer being breastfed.

Avoid taking any over-the-counter blood thinners such as ibuprofen or aspirin in the days leading up to your treatment. Consult your doctor if you’re unsure about which medication to avoid. If you routinely take a medicine, talk to your injector about whether or not it’s right for you.

Do not drink alcohol for at least 24 to 48 hours before having dermal fillers put on your lips. There is an increased risk of bruising.

Do not engage in strenuous exercise the day before or the day of your dermal filler treatment.

Post-treatment don’ts of dermal fillers

There is a risk of infection, so don’t touch the treated area.

Dermal filler injections need 48-hour abstinence from alcohol consumption. Bruising is more likely to occur if you drink alcohol.

Do not engage in any strenuous physical activity following dermal fillers. Do not engage in intense exercise for 48 hours following the procedure, as this can raise the risk of blood clotting and bruise.

The treated region should not be massaged for one week, including facials and facial waxing!

For the first 24 hours following therapy, refrain from donning any cosmetics; this is also recommended before Botox treatment.

Wear sunscreen whenever you leave the house, as instructed above.

Pretreatment Dos of dermal fillers

Check to see if the treatment you’re getting is safe and what the risks are.

If you have a cold sore, keep antivirals on hand and take them as a preventative measure.

Inform your doctor about any medications or supplements you take, whether daily or occasionally.

Staying hydrated is essential.

Post-treatment dos of dermal fillers

Expect some swollen and bruised skin. Needles are inserted into your skin for a period of time that might range from a few days to a week or more.

If you are experiencing any long-term pain, abnormal bruising, excessive swelling, or anything else that is causing you to worry, contact your practitioner.

After your treatment, apply ice to the region. With this, you can alleviate any swelling and discomfort you may be experiencing.
