I had Restylane Lyft injected into my upper cheek area yesterday (Monday). My doctor said it was okay to wear makeup... But!

Makeup after fillers-safe after a few hours.
I generally ask patients not to place their makeup until after the injection holes close up, usually in a few hours after the injections have been done. Mainly I recommend this to avoid the risk of infection. Also I have started asking patients not to push the ice pack hard against their cheeks so as not to flatten the filler I have placed in their cheeks. However, I do NOT advise them after a few hours to avoid sleeping on their side, etc, as the filler really doesn't migrate or flatten after a few hours. Makeup the next day, in your case, should be fine.
Safe with make up!
It's safe to remove your make up. Your Restylane Lyft is not going to move now that its been 24 hours.

Restylane Lyft and Makeup
It is perfectly safe to wear makeup after Restylane Lyft. When it comes to removing makeup you can go with facial wash and mild water to remove your makeup gently, instead of rubbing with cotton pads or wipes.

Removing makeup after filler
Thanks for your question. You should be fine to both apply and remove makeup after any fillers. Just be gentle and you should be ok. I hope you love the Restylane Lyft. It is one of my favorites for the upper cheeks!
After injections, it is perfectly safe to wear and remove your makeup, even eye makeup. We do not recommend a deep massage, but cleaning makeup is generally a gentle process. Filler will not become displaced with gentle makeup removal or application. Best, Dr. Green
It is ok to put on makeup after having Restylane injected yesterday. It is also ok to gently remove your makeup. Good luck!
I love Restylane LyftIt is OK use makeup after filler. Fillers usually set after 2 -5 days. You may notice some swelling a day or so after the fill,er is placed but this should resolve.
Makeup Application and Removal after Filler is OK
I would advise not doing more than “daily
activities” for 4 hours after the procedure. After 4 hours, it is fine to
remove your makeup/wash your face as long as you are not doing a deep facial
massage or applying consistent, deep pressure to the area.
