The effect of your treatment is immediate. Filler can be slightly mobile for a few hours following the procedure so it is important that you keep facial movements minimal and do not rub or massage the area for the rest of the day.
Immediately after the treatment it is quite normal for there to be slight redness, swelling and tenderness around the treated area. These signs will gradually disappear in a few days. Wash and dry your face with gentle patting movements.
It is possible that you may be able to feel or see where the product has been placed for about two weeks following treatment. As the filler gradually incorporates into the matrix of your skin, these signs will lessen. If you have had stronger, more uplifting filler, it is possible that the filler will be palpable for longer.
Please avoid the use of makeup for the rest of the day to prevent the introduction of infection at the injection sites.
Do not have facial beauty treatments or massage for two weeks following treatment and avoid exposure to strong sunlight, very cold temperatures, saunas and solariums for the same length of time.
If there is discomfort following treatment you may take paracetamol. Avoid the use of aspirin, ibuprofen and other anti-inflammatory drugs as these may increase the risk of bruising.
There is a chance of bruising with filler treatments, caused sometimes through the pressure of the product on capillaries under the skin. Bruising may be apparent at the time of treatment or may develop later and may be anything from more likely mild to moderate or occasionally heavy. This is an unfortunate side effect of filler treatments. Bruising will subside in time and the use of arnica cream can sometimes be helpful. Cool compresses for two days following treatment can help. After two days, warm compresses will encourage blood supply to remove traces of the bruise.
Although your treatment result is immediate, the overall result will look much better in about two weeks when any trauma has subsided and the plumping effect of the product has really started to take effect.
