Do’s And Don’ts For Dermal Fillers


Dermal fillers are one of the most commonly sought-after facial rejuvenation treatments that can help add or restore the lost volume in your skin, making it appear smoother, plumper and younger-looking than ever.

Like other injectable treatments (such as Botox), dermal fillers can treat various signs of aging and can help:

  • Smooth lines and creases
  • Fill in deep static wrinkles
  • Add a natural and subtle lift to your sunken cheeks
  • Plump up your thin lips
  • Fill in under eye hollows
  • Reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars

Although dermal fillers are safe to get, the right preparation and practicing the right aftercare can help you achieve optimal facial rejuvenation results that don’t look overdone.

For this reason, we have compiled a list of important do’s and don’ts for your next dermal filler appointment. 


  • Do choose a board-certified injector to make sure that you get optimal results safely. 
  • Do have a thorough discussion about the particular signs of aging you’re looking to treat, your aesthetic goals, and expectations from the injectable treatments. 
  • Do inform your treatment provider in case you’re allergic to any of the components of dermal fillers, have active skin infections at the injection sites, or have underlying health conditions that might diminish your results. 
  • Do avoid the excess intake of alcohol as well as smoking at least a week prior to the treatment as they might delay the healing process and increase the risk of bruising at the injection site. 
  • Do take the prescribed medications (if any) as instructed and adhere to the aftercare guidelines strictly.


  • Do not take any blood thinner medications such as aspirin (with your attending physician’s approval) for at least a week prior to the treatment as they might increase the risk of bruising and bleeding during the treatment. 
  • Do not apply any makeup or harsh skin care products on your face before going in for the appointment. 
  • Do not massage or rub the treated area as it may cause the filler to spread in the surrounding area. 
  • Do not apply ice directly on the injection sites.
  • Do not go out into the sun (without applying good sunscreen), perform heavy workouts, or use a sauna bath and hot tubs for at least a few days after the treatment as they might increase the risk of swelling and bruising at the injection sites. 
  • Do not pick at the injection sites as this may result in complications. 
  • Do not schedule any other facial or injectable treatments for at least 2 weeks after your dermal filler appointment. 

Last but not the least, dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of common signs of aging by restoring the skin’s lost volume. 
However, going to the right injector, and following the proper aftercare can further enhance the results of this amazing facial rejuvenation treatment as well as minimize the risk of side effects.
