The Ultimate Guide To Dermal Filler Aftercare


Dermal fillers are a popular choice for those seeking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, enhance facial contours, and achieve a more youthful look without undergoing surgery. While dermal fillers are known for their immediate results and relatively low downtime, proper aftercare is crucial to ensure the best possible outcome and longevity of the treatment. This ultimate guide to dermal filler aftercare will provide you with all the essential information needed to care for your skin post-treatment.

Immediate Aftercare Instructions

Avoid Touching the Treated Area

It’s natural to feel curious about the changes to your facial contours, but it’s crucial to avoid touching, pressing, or massaging the treated areas for at least 24 hours to prevent unintentional shifting of the filler.

Minimise Exposure to Heat

High temperatures can exacerbate swelling and redness. Avoid direct sunlight, saunas, hot baths, or strenuous exercise for the first 24-48 hours post-treatment.

Stay Hydrated

Hydration is key to helping your skin heal and maintaining the filler’s aesthetic results. Drink plenty of water and consider using a hydrating moisturizer to support skin health.

The First Week: What To Expect

Swelling and Bruising

Some swelling and bruising at the injection sites are normal and typically subside within a week. Applying a cold compress gently to the area can help reduce swelling.

Skin Care Products

Wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup. When you do resume your skincare routine, opt for gentle, non-irritating products to avoid causing inflammation.

Sleeping Position

To avoid putting pressure on the treated areas, which could potentially displace the filler, try to sleep on your back for the first few nights after your treatment.

Long-Term Care and Maintenance

Follow-Up Treatments

Dermal fillers are not permanent. To maintain your desired look, schedule follow-up treatments as recommended by your practitioner at Immaculate Touch.

Sun Protection

Prolonged sun exposure can degrade the quality of the filler and accelerate the aging process of your skin. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect your skin and prolong the results of your treatment.

Healthy Lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, adequate hydration, and regular exercise, supports overall skin health and can enhance the longevity of your dermal filler results.
