Right After treatment

  • Arnica and/or bromelain can help lessen immediate inflammation 

  • Some redness may occur post treatment 

  • Brusing does happen and may last up to 1 week in length. 

  • Avoid excessive alcohol intake the day of your injection. 

Filler Post Care
  • Results are seen immediately with dermal fillers; however best results are seen 2-4 weeks after injections. This is because swelling, bruising and the dermal filler gel itself needs time to settle and heal. Most fillers last 9-12months. However, some can last for up to 2 years. You will need to do touch ups to keep the filler looking its best.

  • We do NOT recommend flying on an aircraft after any filler treatment for the first 48 hours.

  • Ice may be applied GENTLY for swelling and tenderness. Do not keep ice on any one area for more than 10 minutes.

  • Sleeping on your back with your head elevated on a few pillows will help with swelling.
