Had 2 vials of Artfill yesterday. Is there anything I can do to prevent infection or migration?

Monitoring of Artefill or silicone reaction
I would continue to monitor closely to prevent a subclinical infection, granuloma, or reaction to the Artefill.

Anything to do to prevent infection or migration after Artefill treatment?
There is really nothing special that you need to do after an Artefill treatment to prevent infection or migration. As long as the injection was done with a sterile technique, there should be little chance of an infection. Artefill should not migrate once it is injected.
