Post-Operative Instructions for Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (HA)

Please observe the following after treatment with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (HA) or Perlane

  • Cold compresses (a cloth dipped in cold water, wrung out, and applied to the injected area)
    may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling.
  • Avoid touching the treated area within six hours following the treatment so you do not
    accidentally injure your skin while the area is numb. After that, the area can be gently washed
    with soap and water.
  • Until there is no redness or swelling, avoid exposure of the treated area to intense heat (sun
    lamp or sun bathing).
  • If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures
    could contribute to another occurrence. Speak with your physician about medications that may
    minimize a recurrence.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, and high
    doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. These agents may increase
    bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
