This is not the time to bargain shop for the cheapest price in town. Choose a reputable injector that you feel confident and comfortable with to achieve your goals.
Post Injection Care
After getting filler injections, your injector should provide you with detailed care instructions. Most common: 1: Do not rub or massage the injected area for the first 1-2 days. 2: Avoid strenuous exercise as well as sleeping on your side or stomach for the first 1-2 days. You will also be advised to follow a proper skin care regiment that will help you achieve the youthful radiance you are looking for. Sunscreen and cleansers are key, and your injector will take the time to provide you with a thorough skin assessment and recommendations based on your specific skin type.
How long does filler last?
In general, dermal fillers will last about 6-24 months depending on the type of filler you received.
