DERMAL FILLER AFTERCARE ADVICE

Just a little reminder of your aftercare advice.

  • Apply a cool compress to the treatment area (do not apply ice directly to the skin) for 10 minutes every half an hour on the day of treatment.

  • Avoid any heat inducing activities for 24 hours such as strenuous exercise, spas, saunas and hot showers.

  • Avoid pressure on the area for the first 48 hours (sleep on your back if possible, no face down massages).

  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours (However got those wanting the best results from their fillers we recommend that clients abstain from alcohol for 7 days prior and 7 days post treatment for optimal results….eishh who said beauty was easy).

  • Avoid active cosmeceutical products (AHAs, retinols, vitamin C) and oil based makeup for 24 hours.

  • Use a topical treatment to soothe and calm the skin such as Bepanthen or Arnica cream. Use this three times/day for the next 7 days.

  • Avoid facials, waxing, chemical peels, skin needling, microdermabrasion, IPL or laser treatments for 2 weeks after treatment. Please discuss your future treatment plans with any of our consultants if you are uncertain.

  • Do not massage the treatment area unless instructed to do so.
