Aftercare for Dermal Fillers

  •  Avoid touching the treated area or applying with any kind of products for 6-12 hours following treatment. Light Makeup, Lip Balm or Skincare can be applied and the area can be gently washed with soap and water.

  • Do not exercise for 48 hours after your procedure as it can cause migration of filler.

  •   Do not expose the area to heat for 2 weeks after your treatment. This means sunbeds or saunas, steam room or sunbathing.

  •  If you are using aspirin or any similar medication, please be aware that this may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Do not take any blood thinning medications before or after your lip filler appointment for 48 hours.

  • The final result will be 14 days after treatment. After this time if you have any questions, please book in for a review after this two-week period is up.

  •  Please note that it is normal for the treatment area to remain swollen for up to two weeks. During this time the area may feel bumpy, become bruised, look uneven and may feel sore. Please do not panic if this is the case. However any extreme bruising, discolouration, whiteness of the area or blanching of the skin please contact immediately. 

  • Many clients find they need two or three sessions in order to layer filler on top of one another especially if you have virgin lips or treatment area. You may not receive the results you desire in one session. 

  • Please remember each individual is different and has a different facial anatomy therefore one persons results will not be identical to another. Therefore the practitioner cannot be held accountable if several sessions are needed. 

Aftercare for SMPU 

  • Microblading post-care and Semi-permanent makeup post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows, Lip Liner, Lip Blush or any SPMU Treatment.

  • Please read the following aftercare carefully as they apply to our eyebrows treatments.

  • Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7 days after your procedure.

  • Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the shower head or take a bath.

  • Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post procedure. Avoid picking or scratching as it can pull off scabs prematurely and cause patchy results or scarring. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.

  • After 4 days, make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the post-care ointment with a cotton swab and clean hands. This can be done twice a day, at night time and morning time, but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself. Please continue to apply the ointment for 7 days.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post procedure:

  • Increased sweating

  • Practicing sports

  • Swimming

  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning

  • Exposure to UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading

  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the treatment area

  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment

  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris

  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds

  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab

No kissing, rubbing or friction on treatment area 

 

Day 1-3
