After having dermal fillers, patients are recommended to begin exercising the facial muscles. Making exaggerated facial movements for around one hour after dermal fillers will help to work the product into the muscle. If you forget to do this, don’t worry. It will not affect your treatment.
There is minimal downtime associated with dermal fillers. But, some redness at the injection site and minor swelling are normal after the procedure. Applying a cold compress to the area can help to relieve some discomfort. If you are experiencing prolonged discomfort after dermal fillers, it is best to contact Clinica Lase as soon as possible. If you are experiencing a headache, you can take paracetamol for relief.
After the procedure, it is recommended not to use any products that contain AHAs, BHAs and Retinoids. These products should not be used for around 48 hours. If you are feeling self-conscious about the redness, makeup can be applied after the procedure, as long as it is mineral makeup, this will be good for feeling more confident. All sponges and brushes should be cleaned properly to make sure there is no risk of infection.
Facial treatments and massages should be avoided for around 48 hours after having dermal fillers.
