  • Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area unless instructed by provider.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.

  • Avoid extensive sun or heat for 72 hours.

  • Avoid consuming excess amounts of alcohol or salts to avoid excessive swelling.

  • If you have swelling, you may apply a cool compress for 15 minutes each hour.

  • Use Tylenol (acetaminophen) for discomfort.

  • Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling.

  • Take Arnica or apply Arnica balm to help the bruising and swelling. Begin taking at least two days prior to injections.

Dermal fillers last, on average, 6-12 months. It is recommended at the time of your treatment to schedule your next appointment for optimal anti-aging benefits. The most typical side effects (bruising, swelling, redness) are temporary and will resolve. However, please call the office to notify us if you experience any additional side effects
