What should I do after my dermal filler treatment?

- We also recommend sleeping with your head slightly elevated for the first night after your treatment, making sure to avoiding putting pressure onto the area.
- To help reduce bruising you can purchase Arnica or Hirudoid cream from your local chemist.

After your filler treatment it is normal to experience some minor redness, bruising and swelling, this will usually subside after a few days. The best way to avoid any bruising is to limit the intake of any blood thinning medications (such as aspirin, warfarin, or any type of anti-inflammatories) as well as over-the-counter blood thinners (like fish oils) in the week prior to your treatment.
