What Should I Avoid After Getting Fillers Done?

Undergoing dermal filler treatments can enhance your appearance, but proper post-filler care is essential. Here’s a concise guide on what to avoid after getting fillers:

1. No Touching or Massaging

Avoid excessive touching or massaging the treated area to prevent displacement of the filler.

2. Skip Strenuous Exercise

Steer clear of strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours post-treatment to minimize swelling and bruising.

3. Limit Sun Exposure

Protect your skin from excessive sun exposure to prevent swelling and complications. Use high SPF sunscreen if you’re outdoors.

4. Aoid Blood Thinners

Steer clear of blood-thinning medications and supplements before and after the procedure to reduce the risk of bruising.

5. Watch Alcohol Intake

Limit alcohol consumption for a few days post-filler to prevent dehydration and exacerbation of swelling.

6. No Additional Facial Treatments

Postpone other facial treatments or procedures immediately after fillers to allow the skin to heal

7. Mind Your Sleeping Position

Sleep on your back with your head elevated on the first night to minimize swelling and ensure even filler distribution.

8. Quit Smoking At Least Temporarily

Refrain from smoking for a few days after fillers to support the healing process. Quitting smoking altogether can reduce the wrinkles around the mouth.

In conclusion, proper post-filler care is essential for optimal results. Follow these guidelines, adhere to your provider’s instructions, and contact them with any concerns during the recovery period.
