What Should You Avoid After Dermal Fillers?

By: Dr. Leah Waage


If you've recently had a dermal filler procedure done by Dr. Leah Waage at Lazerdoc in Leavenworth, KS, congratulations! You've taken a significant step toward enhancing your natural beauty. However, your daily routine may need to adjust slightly during your dermal filler recovery to ensure optimal results. Understanding aftercare for dermal fillers is crucial so you can get the most out of this noninvasive procedure.

Should I avoid certain activities after dermal fillers?

One of the top aftercare tips to remember is to avoid strenuous exercise for about 24 – 48 hours after receiving dermal fillers. Excessive sweating can increase the risk of inflammation or bruising at the injection site. Along the same lines, try to sidestep extreme heat like saunas, hot tubs, or direct sunlight. These heat sources can also worsen swelling or bruising.

What about my skincare routine after getting dermal fillers?

Take caution with your skincare routine during your dermal filler recovery. It's essential to avoid touching or massaging the treated area for at least a day after the procedure. The fillers need time to settle, and unnecessary pressure might lead to an uneven distribution. On top of that, be mindful of the skincare products you use. Stick to gentle cleansers and moisturizers, and stay away from chemical peels for a few days, as they can irritate the treated areas.

Is there anything I should eat or drink after dermal fillers?

Regarding food and drink after dermal fillers, staying hydrated is key. Hydration helps your body metabolize the fillers more effectively, leading to better results. However, avoid consuming alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours post-procedure, as alcohol can lead to dehydration and potentially increase bruising or swelling.
