Here’s a List of Things To Avoid For Optimal Injectable Filler Results
Injectable Fillers are a popular way to enhance facial features and reduce the signs of aging. Fillers are a cosmetic treatment that adds hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, to areas that need to be filled out or smoothed out.
Fillers are often used to plump lips, reduce wrinkles and creases, and add volume to the cheeks and other areas of the face. Fillers are a minimally invasive treatment that also helps to add more definition to facial contours.
Results are usually seen immediately after treatment. However, there are some things that you need to avoid both before and after your filler treatment to ensure optimal results.
Avoid These Things Before Your Filler Treatment
- You should avoid taking medication that might thin your blood, including ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen. In addition, it would be best to avoid alcohol, caffeine, and smoking, as these can affect the healing process.
- Avoid facial treatments such as Chemical Peels, MicroNeedling, and Microdermabrasion for at least two weeks before your filler appointment.
5 Things to Avoid After Your Filler Treatment
- You should avoid exercise for at least 48 hours, including exercise. In addition, please avoid direct sun exposure and tanning, as this can cause the filler to migrate to an undesired area.
- Avoid Blood Thinners and Specific Medications, and Alcohol for 24 hours after treatment.
- No Makeup for 12 Hours after treatment to avoid infection.
- No Dental Appointments for 2 weeks after treatment to avoid infection.
- Avoid Any Facial Treatments for at least 2 weeks after your filler treatment.
