Dermal Filler After Care Guide

Dermal Filler After Care

After receiving dermal filler injections, it’s essential to follow specific aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results and minimize potential side effects. Here’s a detailed guide for your post-treatment care:


Expect Some Swelling or Bruising: It’s common to experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites. This typically subsides within a few days to a week.

Gentle Skin Care: Maintain a gentle skincare routine. Use mild, non-irritating products and avoid aggressive scrubbing or exfoliation for a few days post-treatment.

Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help maintain the hydration level of the skin and support the effects of hyaluronic acid-based fillers.

Cold Compress: If you experience swelling, you can gently apply a clean, cold compress to the area for a few minutes at a time.


Avoid Strenuous Exercise: Refrain from vigorous physical activities for at least 24 hours post-treatment to minimize swelling and bruising.

No Alcohol Consumption: Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours after treatment as it can increase the risk of bruising and swelling.

Avoid Extremes of Heat and Cold: Stay away from extreme heat (like saunas or hot tubs) and extreme cold until any swelling and redness have subsided.

No Pressure on Treated Areas: Avoid sleeping directly on the treated areas for the first few nights and refrain from applying pressure or massaging the area.

Delay Other Facial Treatments: Wait at least 24 hours before engaging in other facial treatments or procedures.

Important Alerts:

  • Seek Medical Attention for Unusual Symptoms: If you experience any severe or unusual symptoms, such as significant pain, irregular swelling, or signs of infection, contact your healthcare provider immediately.


Dermal fillers offer immediate results, but the final effect is visible once any swelling or bruising subsides. Everyone’s body reacts differently to fillers, so it’s important to closely follow these aftercare instructions and communicate with your healthcare provider about any concerns or unusual reactions you may experience. Proper aftercare is crucial for the success and longevity of your dermal filler treatment.
