5 Things You Absolutely Must Avoid After Getting Filler:
A Guide to Post-Filler Care
So, you’ve just had your fillers done – but the journey doesn’t stop there – post-filler care is just as crucial as the injection process itself. While high-quality fillers such as Laboratori Collagenil Stylema can work wonders on your skin and appearance, taking care of your skin after the procedure is equally important. In this guide, we will discuss the five things you absolutely must avoid after getting fillers.
Avoid touching, massaging, or applying pressure to the treated area.
After getting fillers, your skin is prone to swelling and bruising. Any pressure applied to the treated area might worsen the swelling or cause your skin to bruise even further. Avoid touching or massaging your face, no matter how tempting it may be. Doing so will not only prolong the healing process, but it can also cause the fillers to shift or migrate to unwanted areas.
Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight.
Sun exposure can cause damage to your skin and ruin the results of your filler treatment. The sun’s rays can break down the filler material faster, causing it to become less effective. Wearing SPF 30 or above, and a hat, while going outside can prevent this. This helps the filler do its work and optimizes results.
Avoid excessive exercise or physical activity.
Avoiding excessive exercise or physical activity after the procedure is important because sweating and heat can cause your skin to swell up and become irritated. Sweating increases blood flow, which could cause your filler to shift to unwanted areas or dilute the fillers. Additionally, avoid massages or facials with a lot of heat or stimulation for at least one-week post-filler to give your skin time to settle and heal.
Avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements.
Taking certain medications like aspirin or ibuprofen and supplements like Vitamin E and fish oil can thin your blood and increase the risk of bruising or bleeding with the filler treatment. It’s essential to consult with your doctor or a qualified clinician ahead of time to let them know about the medications and supplements you are currently taking before the filler treatment.
Avoid using makeup too early after the procedure.
While makeup can cover the swelling or bruises after getting fillers, it’s important to give your skin time to heal properly. Applying makeup too early can prolong the healing process, so it’s best to wait at least 24 hours before putting any makeup on. It is helpful to support your skin with high-quality products such as Laboratori Collagenil Re-Pulp line, and they can even prolong the benefits of your filler treatment with regular use.
Getting fillers is a great way to enhance your beauty and boost your confidence. However, as our guide has shown, it’s equally important to make sure you avoid certain things after the procedure to achieve optimal results. In summary, avoid touching or massaging the treated area, excessive sun exposure, excessive exercise, blood-thinning medications or supplements, and makeup too early after the procedure. Follow these tips, and you’ll be well on your way to achieving beautiful, youthful-looking skin.
