Dermal Fillers Side Effects & Aftercare
Possible Side Effects of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers sometimes result in temporary bruising, redness and swelling at the treatment site. If you have any discomfort you may take paracetamol but avoid the use of aspirin, ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory drugs as these may increase the risk of bruising. Dermal fillers can also be slightly mobile for a few hours following the treatment so it is important that you keep facial movements minimal and do not rub or massage the area.
It is possible that you may be able to feel or see where the product has been placed for about two weeks following treatment. As the filler gradually incorporates into the matrix of your skin, these signs will lessen.

Aftercare Advice following Dermal Fillers
After the treatment we would advise you to avoid extreme facial expressions and alcohol so the dermal fillers can settle in place. Avoid touching or putting on make-up to the treated area for at least 12 hours after the treatment to prevent infection. For 2 weeks following your treatment avoid extremes of heat like the sauna, solarium, sun bathing, skiing etc. This is in order for you to get the best result possible from your dermal fillers treatment.
