Dermal Fillers are effective in treating facial concerns associated with aging and volume loss and restoring a desirable youthful appearance. To maintain the youthful glow, the result largely depends on the cosmetic doctor, the type of filler used, and the aftercare guide.
Here are some tips:
Minimize bruising and swelling
Dermal filler treatments have minimal downtime and immediate results but with minor side effects. Tiny bruising and swelling may be noticeable after injectable treatment. These are normal reactions and should subside within 24-48 hours. A patient may gently apply an ice pack or Amica cream. Any topical treatments, supplements, and over-the-counter pain medication should be discussed by a cosmetic doctor during the consultation or after the procedure.
Avoid touching the treated areas
Hyaluronic acid fillers are malleable while settling into the treated area. It is strongly recommended to avoid touching the injection site 24-48 hours following the procedure. Applying pressure may cause movement and leave dents or dimples that may require corrective treatments.
Contact your cosmetic doctor if you experience side effects
Side effects are uncommon, but if you experience the following symptoms, you must contact the SKIN CLUB – Cosmetic Doctors immediately:
- Severe pain
- Fever or chills
- Hotness or increased redness of the treated area
- Rash, blotches or discoloration
- Use only quality skincare products
Skincare products also enhance the effects of the hyaluronic acid Dermal Fillers. It is important to enquire with your cosmetic doctor the best products for you to better complement the effects of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections.
Wear sun protection
Overexposure to the sun can damage the skin and lead to sunspots, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and sagging. Applying a quality sunscreen or using a foundation with added SPF can help to maintain the results of your Dermal Filler treatment and minimize aging.
Dermal Filler results and your skin quality rely on what you put in your body. The healing post-treatment can be optimized through drinking water and eating foods high in skin-loving nutrients and reducing your intake of inflammatory foods.
Schedule follow up treatments
Regular touch-ups can maintain your facial treatment results since Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are only temporary. Follow up treatments optimize your youthful appearance, and can teach your muscles to respond more effectively to dermal fillers in the future.
