Post-filler care

After a filler treatment, gentle skin care is recommended.  Arnica gel can be applied to areas that are bruised or are developing bruising.  Applying ice in the physician's office right after the treatment can help minimize swelling.  However, with the use of canulas to inject, the risk of bruising is minimized.

Wait a few hours before applying concealer or makeup,...

Wait a few hours before applying concealer or makeup, and about 6 hours for applying lipstick or gloss after lip injections. Moisturizers and your normal skin care regimen are fine to maintain the day of your injections going forward.

Consult your physician if you have any specific questions about your skin or if you think it is not looking as expected after injections.
