How Long After Filler Can You Get a Facial?

How Long Can You Get a Facial After Filler?

If you are someone who thrives on a good skincare routine, you probably have standing appointments in your calendar for various treatments that help revitalize and rejuvenate your skin. Things like microneedling, chemical peels, facials, Botox and filler are high on your priority list, and you take care to schedule your visits ahead of time to stay organized.

The Importance of Timing Facial Treatments and Fillers

As you schedule your appointments, you might be faced with situations where it may be advised not to have a specific treatment immediately after you’ve had something else done. For example, a lot of people ask questions about whether or not it is okay to get filler after facial treatments, or vice versa, and how long you need to wait in between these two treatments.

Prepping Skin Before Fillers with a Facial

In general, it is better to get a facial before getting fillers. In fact, it can help prep and pamper skin before getting the injectables. Before scheduling the facial followed by filler on the same day, or within days of each other, make sure to always discuss the timeline with your provider. Those with sensitive skin might want to stick to a basic facial rather than something more intense like a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, just in case there is any irritation to the skin. You don’t want to be in the midst of experiencing side effects when going in for the facial filler.

Waiting Period for Facials After Fillers

When it comes to getting a facial after getting fillers, it is recommended to wait at least 5-7 days. Your face will be very tender and sensitive for the first couple days after the treatment. You want to make sure to give your body enough time to heal, and give the filler enough time to settle in. Rubbing or massaging the face too soon after the treatment, even if done gently, can potentially cause it to move around and have a negative affect on how the filler is working.

If the filler is moved around and dispersed to other areas of the face, it won’t be doing its job and you won’t achieve the desired look you were hoping for.

Fillers, also referred to as dermal fillers, are a very cost-effective option to obtain natural looking smooth skin in a quick and convenient time frame. Fillers can smooth fine lines and wrinkles, add volume to the skin and increase the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. The best part is that there is absolutely no need for invasive surgery and appointments take no more than one hour.
