Initial Aftercare

  • Avoid touching the treated area or applying with products including moisturisers, face-wash within 24hours following treatment. Please make use of the handy antiseptic wipes we gave you if you by accident touch the treated area/s.
  • Until the initial swelling and redness has resolved please do not expose the area to intense heat. Eg sunbeds, sunbathing, please use sun protection post treatment if you cannot avoid being in the sun. Also avoid any extreme cold temperatures.
  • Please do not participate in strenuous exercise for 48 hours after your procedure as it can cause migration of filler due to increased blood flow and excess bruising/ swelling.
  • If you have previous suffered facial herpes, there is a risk that injections could contribute to another eruption, please do not have fillers when you have a coldsore.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol and the use of aspirin or ibuprofen for 24 hours following treatment please be aware that the above may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site as they are blood thinners.
  • We get a lot of clients ask if they can kiss after treatment - of course but we would advise not to kiss in order to prevent infection/ contaminating the injection site until healed (24 hours)
  • You may eat and drink as normal, however please be aware that the lidocaine will have effect for two hours after injection and therefore you will be numb take care with hot foods.
  • The use of topical arnica cream or tablets may help manage bruising.
  • Avoid any facials, micro-dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser and sun beds for at least 14 days.
  • Changes of air pressure in aeroplanes may increase swelling therefore avoid flying for 48 hours after treatment.

Any injection causes an inflammatory response – This means two things;

1 ) This is not your final result - It is not uncommon for the treatment area to remain swollen for up to two weeks. During this time the area may look very uneven, feel lumpy/ bumpy, bruised and may feel sore, if you are uncomfortable please do not take ibuprofen, as this is a blood thinner and will worsen swelling. Paracetamol would be appropriate (if you feel it is necessary) Please do not panic. It is normal during this period to not be entirely happy with your results. Patience here is key. The final result will be apparent approximately 14 days after treatment. If you have any minor concerns, please book in for a review after this two-week period is up. Any initial discomfort during this period can be eased by application of ice.

2 ) This is not your final result - Any injection causes an inflammatory response. This can easily cause disappointment over the following weeks because as the swelling subsides, the treatment area may look significantly less plump than it looked immediately after injection. The filler has not dissolved nor disappeared, you have not wasted your money. The filler has simply sunken and formed a layer at the base of your treatment area. Many clients find they need two or three sessions to achieve your desired outcome and in order to layer filler on top of one another – until the filler no longer has room to sink – leaving you with a fuller/ more contoured finished look. Clients usually swell more for the first to third treatment, clients can mistaken this for filler and in fact it is swelling which usually subsides after two weeks. Unfortunately, we cannot predict how many sessions each individual will need to achieve their desired result and therefore cannot be held accountable if several sessions are needed. The results of your treatment durability are influenced by several genetic and lifestyle factors completely out of our control. It is dissolved by your metabolism and therefor everyone dissolves filler at a different rate and not one is the same. Aesthetics is an art process - not an exact science.
