Taking proper care of the face after injections is important to avoid and prevent possible side effects and to have a faster recovery.

In this article we will mention all the subtleties of the treatment at home and the necessary post ‘beauty injections or intradermal fillers’ care

It may seem logical, but this is not always the case. After the treatment, many patients leave the aesthetic medical practice and forget to follow the facial care routine at home, without even realising the negative consequences of doing so. We must emphasise that the period after the procedure is no less important than the procedure itself.

For this reason, here are 10 tips that will help us to achieve skin regeneration and preserve the results for as long as possible, avoiding the appearance of side effects or complications.

After the injections, you should wash your face exclusively with drinking, mineral or boiled water and after that, use chlorhexidine solutions. This routine should be followed for 3 days, without omissions.


Furthermore, it is important to use products that have antiseptic and antibacterial properties. This ensures that the pathogenic flora is kept at bay. For example, you could use Traumeel®, which should be applied two or three times a day. With regard to the lips, in addition, it is also recommended to use a gel or cream with an antibacterial and antiviral component 3-4 times a day for a week.


Before going outdoors, we must protect the face with a cream with SPF 50+, and nevertheless, it is not advisable to sunbathe directly without a physical barrier for the following 7 days after the injections. It is also strictly forbidden to expose yourself to active heat (bath, sauna, spa, solarium, etc.) for 7-10 days.


We should also mention that the day after the treatments, the use of decorative cosmetics such as make-up and medication is not recommended, except for those indicated by your doctor.


After the treatment, it is necessary to completely limit mimic activity in the area where the injection was given, except in the case of treatment with the neuromodulator, where a series of exercises is recommended in the following two hours.


Facial massages and microcurrent devices should also be eliminated from the daily routine, as they may cause accelerated biodegradation of the drug.


For one thing, sleeping on your stomach is harmful, so you should try to sleep in such a way that your face is not in contact with the pillow. This is a rule to follow throughout life, especially after undergoing ‘beauty injections’.


In the case of treatments with hyaluronic acid, you should avoid any alcohol intake two days before and 2 days after the procedure.


Do not use ice, cold compresses or masks with cooling effect for 24 hours after the treatment.


Likewise, we do not recommend the practice of sport or physical activity during the 7-10 days following the treatment.
