After Care

Dermal fillers

Following your dermal filler treatment, you will feel tender, a little swollen and bruising may be apparent. This is all normal and should subside over the coming days. Below is a list of post-treatment instructions to promote healing.


  • Do not rub or touch the treatment areas for at least the next 4 – 6 hours to minimize your risk of infection.

  • No strenuous exercise for the next 24 – 48 hours 

  • No other facial or aesthetic treatments to the area for a minimum of 2 weeks

  • No face down massages for the next 7 days.

  • No active skincare (retinoids/vitamin A / AHA’s) products for 24 hours after treatment.

  • Do not massage, press or push the areas injected unless otherwise directed by your practitioner.




The following symptoms are NOT considered a normal reaction following a dermal filler treatment. If you have any of the below symptoms, notify us immediately so we can organise a review in person.

  • Skin Discolouration to the treatment area or surrounds that appears purple/blue/white/grey/red in colour. This is a sign of a vascular occlusion and requires immediate intervention.

  • Ulceration or blistering to the treatment area or surrounds.

  • Severe swelling that impacts normal activities (e.g. Eating, drinking, sleeping)

  • Increasing pain within the days following treatment

  • Redness and heat to the injection site or surrounds.

  • Inflamed, hardened lumps with discomfort to touch.

  • Discharge, ooze or persistent bleeding from the injection sites.

  • Persistent itchiness with or without a rash.

  • Delayed sudden presentation of hard, inflamed lumps in the areas of injection.

If at any stage you have any concerns regarding your treatment, please do not hesitate to contact FORME Aesthetics by email or phone call.
