Facial Filler


  • To have the best chance of avoiding bruising during the procedure, abstaining from the use of alcohol and anti-inflammatories (like ibuprofen) for 1 week prior to the procedure is best.

    • Supplementing with arnica and/or antihistamines before the procedure can be beneficial for bruising & swelling.​

  • Coming with a clean face is always preferred, but we understand this is not always possible.


  • Avoid the following for 24 hours:

    • Makeup​

    • Strenuous exercise

    • Heavily massaging the area

    • Abstaining from alcohol can decrease bruising

  • No dental work or vaccines for 2 weeks.

  • Things that can decrease swelling:

    • Icing the area for 15 mins​

    • Sleeping with your head elevated

  • Normal Reactions:

    • Tenderness and/or swelling to the area for 24-48 hours

    • Being able to feel the filler. This will go away, give it 2 weeks.​​
    • Bruising is normal
  • When to call:​

    • Pain out of proportion​

    • The skin is pale in color

Remember, you can always call your injector if you feel that something is wrong.
