What to Avoid After Getting a Dermal Filler

Cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers are becoming more and more popular to rejuvenate areas filled with wrinkles and those lacking volume. At A New U in Ormond Beach, we offer a wide range of dermal fillers specific to different areas of the body and focal points. Before receiving dermal fillers or cosmetic injectables, it’s important that you take some things into consideration that should be avoided following the treatment.

Intense Heat

Intense heat that comes from suntanning or direct sun exposure can cause treated areas to become red, bruised, and swollen. To avoid this, you should prevent direct exposure to the areas treated with dermal fillers for at least 24 hours, and be proactive with applying quality sunscreen and wearing protective clothing over treated areas.

Pressure on Treated Areas

Another thing that should be avoided is any type of pressure on the treated area. This could include anything from a massage or microdermabrasion to wearing eyewear that presses against the treated areas. These should be avoided for the two weeks following your treatment as dermal fillers can potentially migrate from the target area if the right pressure is applied. Additionally, you should avoid rubbing the injection site as it could cause irritation, bruising, and swelling.

Strenuous Exercise

Due to dermal fillers being metabolized by your body, it is important that you avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after receiving your treatment. Since exercise increases the metabolization process, doing so too soon after treatment could result in dissatisfying dermal filler results.

Similar to exercising, alcohol causes the dermal fillers to be excreted through the liver and kidneys faster than normal. Additionally, the blood thinning effects of alcohol can cause excessive bruising after a dermal filler treatment. To prevent these things from affecting your dermal filler results, avoid drinking alcohol the day before and after your treatment.
