Aftercare for your Injectables.

Updated: Jun 17


You may experience minor discomfort after your appointment, but we find the most of our clients are able to head back to work or return to their normal activities the very same day.


Here is how to look after yourself post "Pep Me Up" appointment.
















Aftercare for Dermal Fillers.


Immediately after your treatment, you will notice some swelling in the injected areas, which may exaggerate the results you see in the mirror.


We advise that you should wait for two weeks before making any judgments about your filler treatment because the swelling needs to subside, and the product needs this time to settle and really work its magic.

Remember that your final result will be seen approximately four to six weeks after treatment.

Here is a list of normal side effects that will resolve on their own within a few days.

  • Swelling and bruising.

  • Red needle puncture marks

  • Asymmetry- ( it is common for one side to swell more than the other.)

  • Tenderness

  • Itching in the area


With lip fillers you may notice the following side effects post-treatment;

  • A much larger upper lip compared with the lower lip

  • Swelling in the philtrum, the skin coloured area above the upper pink lip

  • Significant projection increase of the upper lip

  • You may experience some lumps, we recommend to gently massage these a few times a day. If the lumps are still present after 2-3 weeks please get in touch for a review.

It's important to remember that these are temporary side effects and should improve over the first 2-3 days.

Here's what you should avoid for the first 24 hours:

  • Strenuous exercise

  • Alcohol

  • AHA, Retinols, Vitamin C etc

  • Waxing

  • Intense heat (e.g. solarium or sauna)

  • Avoid pressure on the treated areas for the first few nights (i.e. sleep on your back if possible)

What can I take for pain relief?


Pain is usually mild after filler injections. Pain relief such as paracetamol may be taken as directed by your Physician.

  • Avoid putting any pressure on the area
