Post Treatment- Restylane Silk
Restylane silk is a injectable filler used to smooth lines around the mouth and deliver beautiful fuller lips! Post treatment after Restylane is very simple.
There is some minor bruising and swelling 24-48 hours after being injected, applying cold compresses to reduce this will help. washing your face gently is fine! try not to massage to hard in the areas injected, and try sleeping on your back for a couple nights! I hope this helps you on your journey!:')
After care for your restylane injections
After you have had your lips injected, it is fine to continue your normal daily skin care routine. Importantly, it is not uncommon to get swelling. Things that make that worse would be manipulating your lips and probably eating salty foods. It is better to ice as much as possible that first night. Do not fret the swelling however, I think that the swelling actually helps distribute the product more uniformly and the result is a very natural lucious lip.
I appreciate your question.
There should be no issues to resume your normal skin care regimen post injection. With that said, your MD should have reviewed everything with you at the end of appointment. For any immediate questions/concerns, please call injecting MD.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
Skin care regimen after Restylane Silk
Thank you for your question. You should be fine to resume your skin care regimen after your procedure. I would avoid a lot of firm manipulation of the lip area as this may induce more swelling.
Yes, you can resume your skin care regime after
Restylane Silk injections. However, for the first few hours after injections,
avoid using any skin products with acids or exfoliative scrubs as this may
sting at the injections sites. Furthermore, for the next 24-72 hours make
sure to avoid vigorously scrubbing around the lips to avoid increased swelling.
Thank you for your question. There shouldn't be a problem using your face product soon after getting your injectable. Just make sure you don't massage the treated area. Best wishes Dr JSB
Washing your face after fillers
Yes you may wash your face gently with any kind of cleanser. Try to avoid any heavy massaging to the areas that were injected.
You should be able to return to your normal skin care routine. The biggest thing to avoid is heavy pressure to the area injected. Topical skin care will should never affect filler or toxins is a negative way.
Washing the face gently should not effect your filler treatment
It's fine to wash your face after treatment with any filler (or toxin such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) as long as you do so gently.
Skincare after Restylane Silk
You can return to your normal skincare routine after any fillers. We just suggest you don't press on the area or scrub it harshly, which really, you should never be doing anyway.
