I  would avoid exercise right after a filler is placed.  It shoudl be ok by the next day, but it may unroof bruising and further swelling.

It is safer not to exericise for a day after the injections to minimize bruising and swelling but the exericise shouldn't make it migrate to other areas provided the tissues are not being squeezed and manipulated.

We commonly ask our patients to avoid strenuous exercise for 24-36 hours after Restylane injections to minimize the chances of swelling. Others doctors may have different regimens.

Thank you for your question. It is advisable not to exercise for 24 hours after injection. This is to help minimize bruising and swelling. However, exercising should not make the filler migrate as long as the tissues are not being squeezed or manipulated. Best of Luck
