If you’re paying for quality injectable treatments, you want to make sure you’re getting the best results possible. This means, of course, choosing a reputable surgeon. Cosmetic surgery is not a decision you should make lightly. We recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon that will ensure a smooth, successful procedure.
While injectable treatments are far less invasive than other cosmetic surgeries, such as lip reduction surgery, it is still vital to consult professionals to avoid complications.
Consult Your Specialist
Once you’ve completed your procedure, ask your specialist for what you should or should not do post-treatment.
Do’s and Don’ts
Some common do’s and don’ts are to avoid touching the treated area for 48 hours after treatment. Gentle facial expressions after treatment, however, can help prolong treatment results as it helps the solution distribute evenly across the area.
Try to avoid exercise for a minimum of 24 hours after treatment.
For stomach and side-sleepers, we recommend trying to sleep on your back so as not to place pressure on the treated area.
Try to keep sunlight exposure to a minimum and limit alcohol consumption for the first week.1 This is especially important for cosmetic surgeries completed in warm climates such as Florida, where there are harsh and damaging sun rays year-round.
When discussing your procedure with your specialist, they will ask you about your skincare routine. Make sure to mention every product you use so that they can tell you about any possible side effects or reactions they may have with your treatment. Once you have approval from your specialist, you can continue your skincare routine post-treatment.
Healthy Living Translates to Healthy Skin
Living a healthy lifestyle post-treatment can ensure a smooth procedure. It also, of course, has the added benefit of improving your body’s overall health. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and a healthy body means healthy skin!
Things to Do Post-Injectable Treatment
These additional steps will ensure that your procedure yields the best possible results.
- Eat a healthy diet, and stay away from sugar and dairy products
- Stay hydrated
- Avoid tobacco use
- Wear sunscreen when exposing yourself to the sun
- Have a consistent sleep schedule
- Limit stress
Further Steps to Take
If you are unsatisfied with the results of your most recent treatment, we recommend consulting with our board-certified plastic surgeon to find out the best options available for you. If you opt for injectable treatments, keep in mind, these are temporary treatments that often last anywhere from three to five months.1 Make sure to follow the advice given to you after your procedure to maintain the results for as long as possible.
