Dermal Filler Aftercare

Essential Steps to Preserving Your Fresh Look

After investing in dermal fillers, the next vital step is the right aftercare

When you walk out of House of Beauty’s doors, conveniently located in Camberley, your skin may be glowing and refreshed, thanks to the wonders of dermal fillers. This skin rejuvenation procedure can provide immediate results, enhancing your appearance and boosting your self-esteem. However, to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of these impressive results, it’s crucial to adhere to a proper aftercare regimen.

In this extensive post, we will guide you through the integral steps to care for your skin after your dermal filler treatment, providing useful tips to keep your skin in its prime condition.

Understanding the Magic of Dermal Fillers

Before delving into the specifics of aftercare, take a brief moment to understand what dermal fillers truly are with our comprehensive dermal fillers guide. Dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers or injectables, are substances introduced under the skin to restore lost volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles, or enhance facial contours.

Navigating Dermal Filler Aftercare

Immediate Aftercare

Once you step out of our beauty salon, there are a few key instructions to keep in mind:

Avoid Disturbing the Treated Area

While the treated area may feel slightly different at first, it’s important to avoid touching, rubbing, or applying pressure. Doing so could potentially displace the filler or even lead to complications.

Stay Hydrated

Hydration is a fundamental component of healthy skin. Drinking plenty of water is particularly vital after dermal filler treatment, as these injectables work by attracting water molecules, thereby amplifying their volumizing effect.

Refrain from Intense Physical Activity

For the first 24-48 hours post-treatment, it’s best to minimise vigorous exercise. Such activities could increase blood flow, potentially causing the filler to move from the treatment area.

Aftercare in the First Week

The first week following your dermal filler treatment at House of Beauty involves preserving the results and reducing potential side effects.

Addressing Swelling and Bruising

Mild swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site are common side effects. Use a cold pack on the area to alleviate these symptoms. It’s advisable to avoid aspirin and alcohol, both of which can exacerbate bruising.

Limit Sun and Heat Exposure

Sun and heat can worsen swelling or discomfort post-treatment. It’s recommended to shield the treated area from the sun, and if necessary, use a high SPF sunscreen.

Long-term Aftercare

Beyond the first week, long-term care becomes a vital aspect of preserving the effects of your dermal filler treatment.

Regular Touch-ups

For sustained results, regular touch-ups are crucial. The frequency will vary depending on the type of dermal filler used and your body’s metabolism.
