Post-Care Dermal Filler Protocols
Follow Aftercare Instructions
Pay close attention to the aftercare instructions provided by your healthcare provider. These instructions may vary depending on the type of filler used and the area treated.
Avoid Touching or Massaging
Do not touch or massage the treated area immediately after the procedure. This can help prevent the filler from shifting or spreading to unintended areas.
Minimize Swelling and Bruising
To reduce swelling and bruising, you can apply cold packs to the treated area for short periods (follow your provider’s recommendations). Avoid applying ice directly to the skin.
After the procedure, stay upright for a few hours and avoid lying down or bending over. This helps prevent the filler from moving.
Limit Physical Activity
Refrain from strenuous exrecise and physical activities for a day or two after treatment, as excessive movement can affect the filler’s placement.
Avoid Sun Exposure
Minimize sun exposure and protect your skin from UV radiation for at least a week after the procedure. Sunscreen and protective clothing are essential.
Depending on the filler used, you may need to schedule follow-up appointments to assess the results and make any necessary adjustments.
Report Any Concerns
If you experience unusual side effects or have concerns after the procedure, contact your healthcare provider promptly.
