Can I have anti-wrinkle or dermal fillers when breast feeding or pregnant?

There is no clinical evidence suggesting that having anti-wrinkle or dermal filler is unsafe in pregnancy or while breastfeeding, but it is sensible and professional practice to not have this treatment as a precaution.

Is there downtime for dermal filler treatments?

Recovery time varies for each patient and for different types of filler. You can resume most activities right away, but it is recommended that you avoid physical activity for the first 24 – 48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. It is also recommended to avoid alcohol and blood thinning medication for the first 24 hours post-treatment. Bruising, redness, swelling and tenderness can be normal side effects of dermal filler, so if you have a special occasion coming up we recommend having treatments 2 weeks prior to the event to let your areas of treatment completely heal.

How long will my anti-wrinkle treatment last?

It’s definitely recommended you keep on top of your treatments, if you see movement starting to reappear book in for a touch-up. Anti-wrinkle treatments are proven to last longer if you maintain and keep on top of treatments. We explain it like this – if you stop using your muscles, they won’t grow and once you start using them again, they will grow. The same principle applies to anti-wrinkle injections, we are stopping the muscle from working so if it doesn’t have the chance to start working again then it won’t grow. No muscle movement = no static lines.
