The quick treatment procedure and easy availability of the fillers have turned the dermal fillers treatment into one of the most preferred choices of people for skin rejuvenation. However, to let the treatment go smoothly and making the results last longer, there are a few do’s and don’ts that one needs to be aware of, both before and after the treatment. Here are some of the most vital ones of them:


Pre-Treatment Care

Following the pre-treatment care instructions play an important role making the application of dermal fillers a successful one. Though the precautions are not that difficult, but they are indeed serious. Here are some of the most important precautions to take:


It’s better not to consume any alcoholic substances, at least 24 hours before the beginning of the treatment.

If you're taking any blood-thinning or anti-inflammatory medications, then consult your doctor and if possible, stop taking them two weeks before opting for the fillers treatment.

In case you have suffered any serious skin condition earlier, it’s best to inform the professional in advance who will inject the fillers.’

Stop taking any kind of medication that may cause your skin to swell up. Because it’ll then become difficult to determine the real effect of the treatment.


Post-Treatment Care

The dermal fillers treatment is a quick procedure and may take only ten to half an hour to complete, based on the depth of the treatment. Though there is no downtime after the finishing of the treatment, but sometimes the skin area which is treated may feel tender or get swelled a bit. Therefore, here are few post-treatment care tips that you should keep in mind:


You can apply makeup on your skin right after the ending of the treatment. However, you need to make sure that you stay gentle to the area where the fillers are applied.

It's better not to touch the treated area before at least six hours of the treatment.

Make sure you have a follow-up appointment with your doctor who injects the filler into your skin to have a normal check-up to make sure that everything is fine.

Avoiding a direct exposure to the sun or excessive heat is strongly advised.


Though unlike other anti-aging skin treatments, dermal fillers show no serious side effects. But in the case of any discomfort after the treatment, make sure that you bring that to the notice of your doctor. If all the Above-mentioned precautions and post-treatment care are taken carefully, the risk of any side effects can be naturally minimized.
