1 Don't touch:

After getting your shots of fillers injected, you should not rub or massage the area after the treatment for up to 48 hours.

2 Keep clean:

Clean your face very gently with a non-soapy, mild face wash or cleanser. Immediately after the injection, apply some ice to soothe the areas and minimise the swelling or little bruising that may have appeared.

3 Try to avoid:

Avoid getting a facial done during the week post filler treatment. Also, you should not indulge in heavy exercises right after, or for a couple of days, post fillers.

4 Be gentle:

You can apply make up after the filler is injected. However, removing makeup should be done in a very gentle manner. No harsh strokes while cleaning those areas.

5 No Painkillers:

Do no take any pain killer medication for any kind of pain in the body for the next 24-48 hours, as these medicines thin the blood and may increase the chances of bruising at the areas treated with dermal fillers.
