Dermal Filler Do's and Don'ts: Your Guide to Post-Treatment Bliss 

Congratulations on your decision to enhance your natural beauty with dermal fillers! At Evolve Med Spa, we want to ensure you achieve optimal results and a comfortable recovery. Here's your essential guide to post-dermal filler aftercare, packed with do's and don'ts to navigate you towards post-treatment bliss:


  • Cool It Down: Swelling and redness are common after filler injections. Apply a cold compress to the treated area for short intervals (10-15 minutes) throughout the day to minimize these temporary side effects.
  • Elevate When You Rest: Sleeping with your head slightly elevated for a few nights after treatment can help reduce swelling around the eyes and cheeks.
  • Embrace Gentle Skincare: Stick to your gentle skincare routine, but avoid harsh products or scrubbing the treated areas. Pat your face dry instead of rubbing.
  • Hydration is Key: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to promote healing and flush out any impurities.
  • Listen to Your Body: Avoid strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours after treatment. Strenuous activity can elevate your heart rate and blood pressure, potentially affecting the filler's placement.


  • Don't Pick or Touch: Resist the urge to massage, rub, or pick at the treated areas. This can irritate the injection sites and disrupt the filler's settlement.
  • Hold the Aspirin: Avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen for at least 48 hours after treatment, as they can increase your risk of bruising.
  • Say No to Saunas and Steamy Rooms: High heat can cause swelling, so avoid saunas, steam rooms, and hot showers for at least a week after treatment.
  • Sunscreen is a Must: Sun exposure can break down dermal fillers faster. Apply sunscreen daily with SPF 30 or higher to protect your investment and maintain your youthful look.
  • Skip the Makeup Application Party: Avoid applying heavy makeup for the first 24 hours after treatment. Harsh makeup products and application tools can irritate the injection sites.

Maximizing Longevity:

  • Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: A balanced diet, adequate sleep, and managing stress levels can all contribute to the longevity of your dermal fillers.
  • Sun Protection is Crucial: Sun exposure is one of the biggest factors contributing to dermal filler breakdown. Consistent use of sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher helps protect your fillers and maintain your results.
  • Schedule Follow-Up Appointments: Regularly scheduled appointments with your Evolve Med Spa injector allow them to monitor your progress and address any concerns you may have.
