What are the possible side effects?

Swelling: depends on multiple factors and just because you didn’t swell one time, does not mean you will not swell the next time you do a treatment. Sometimes an anti-swelling medication will be given after your injection.

Bruising: While we rarely see them in patients, some people are predisposed to bruise. We suggest that you avoid fish oil, alcohol, and ibuprofen products to minimize the chance of bruising. Bruises can last 2-3 days or up to 2 weeks depending on type and location. Arnica pills can be purchased during your visit that can help heal bruises more quickly.

When will I see my final results?

With filler, the immediate results are a view into the future but aren't the final results. If you like your filler right away, you’ll love it in two weeks as the work begins to settle. The swelling you notice will go down and you'll quickly see your longterm results. While you may have some soreness initially, the area will start to feel and look more natural in no time!

Can I put makeup on?

You can! We recommend Oxygenetics - a fully breathable and post treatment safe foundation.

What if I want more?

We offer complementary consultations 2 weeks after your filler appointment. We can discuss your plans for further treatments then!

The Basics

Avoid massaging the treated area. Avoid heat, tanning, saunas, hot tubs, and exercise for 24 hours. Avoid excess alcohol and salt. Use ice for swelling 15 min/hr.
