After receiving a treatment with hyaluronic acid filler, it is important to follow certain care to ensure the best results and minimize possible side effects. Here are some general recommendations:

  1. Avoid touching the treated area: Do not massage or press the area where the filler was applied for at least 24 hours.

  2. Keep your head elevated: During the first few hours after treatment, keep your head elevated to prevent the filler from moving. And sleep on your back for the first 2 days.

  3. Apply cold compresses: Use cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. Apply in 10-15 minute intervals.

  4. Avoid intense exercise: Avoid intense physical activities for the first 24-48 hours to reduce inflammation and the risk of bruising.

  5. Do not consume alcohol or smoke: Refrain from consuming alcohol and tobacco, as they can increase swelling and bruising.

  6. Stay well hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and aid in the recovery process.

  7. Avoid exposure to sun and heat: Do not expose yourself to the sun, saunas, or tanning beds for at least a week. Heat can increase inflammation and bruising.

  8. Follow the doctor’s instructions: Follow all specific instructions given by your doctor or specialist. This may include the use of certain topical products or avoiding others.

  9. Report any adverse effects: If you experience severe pain, prolonged redness, noticeable asymmetry, or any other unusual symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.
