Are There Any Treatments I Can't Get with Fillers?

 Are There Any Treatments I Can't Get with Fillers?

Dermal fillers have become one of the most popular ways to smooth out fine lines and restore youthful volume to an aging face without surgery or a lengthy recovery. 

When they’re administered by a licensed and trained professional like Dr. Divina Averilla, dermal fillers produce symmetrical, subtle, natural-looking results, and the vast majority of patients who see us for treatment are thrilled with their new look. 

To top it off, we use the industry’s leading fillers, such as Voluma® and others in the Juvéderm® line, and Radiesse®. These fillers offer the best, most dramatic results.  

However, cosmetic treatments can be fickle, and if you’re not careful, you could undo your results, prolong your recovery, or worse, develop an infection. We want our patients to leave wanting more after their treatments, so we take great care to ensure you know the best post-filler practices. 

Here’s a closer look at what not to do after your injection. 

Off-limit treatments after fillers

It’s extremely rare, but dermal fillers can migrate within your skin under constant pressure. So, we recommend avoiding treatments like facials, massages, and microdermabrasion for the first two weeks following your injection. 

We also strongly encourage you to keep from rubbing or massaging your face, as you can disrupt the symmetry of your fillers and exacerbate bruising or swelling. The same goes for goggles and other accessories that put pressure on the treated areas. 

Off-limit habits after fillers

It’s summer in Vegas, so avoiding the sun is almost impossible. But if you want to keep your fillers in mint condition, we suggest limiting or avoiding direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a week or so. Direct exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause redness, bruising, and/or swelling in the treatment area. 

What you can do

You’re not on lockdown after you get fillers. In fact, there are a few treatments we recommend for you in combination with dermal fillers to give your skin a complete refresh. Botox®, for example, is an excellent companion to fillers. 

Besides a needle prick, we don’t add significant or consistent pressure to your face, so the fillers plump your features and smooth out static wrinkles. We also offer Botox injections to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. 

Feel free to maintain your regular skin care routine, cleaning, exfoliating, and moisturizing as you normally would — just be careful when applying the products to your face for the first couple of weeks. 

If you’d like more information about how to care for your skin after fillers, don’t hesitate to contact us. You can schedule an appointment online or over the phone.
