After-care instructions for filler with Aquamid

  • Do not exercise or swim for the first 24 hours post treatment.
  • Avoid the sun for the first 24 hours
  • Do not use make up the day of the treatment.
  • Make sure you drink plenty of water
  • For lip enhancement: Avoid hot drinks and hot food for the first 24 hours. Do not use lipstick on the day of treatment. No kissing for 24 hours post treatment.

  • Avoid IPL, laser, Microdermabrasion and chemical peels for at least 2 weeks. 

Possible side effects after filler with Aquamid

  •  Redness, swelling and bruising. Compress with an ice pack. Take Arnica, either as a topical cream or tablet to reduce these side effects.
  •  Infection in the injected area. This is a rare side effect and should be taken seriously. Please contact your treating doctor for advice. Our experience shows that patients who seek advice from clinics where they do not have knowledge of Aquamid are less successful with treating infections than patients who seek advice from a doctor who has a better understanding of their treatment.
  •  It is crucial to NEVER take medicines containing steroids for the treatment of infections after having Aquamid. This can potentially worsen the condition.
  •  Allergic reactions such as severe swelling, itching and redness within 24 hours post treatment. Please contact your treating doctor if this occurs.

Repeat treatment and maintenance

No repeat treatments are necessary. If you are not happy with the result after 10-14 days, please come back to the clinic for a consultation with your doctor.

To maintain the effect of the filler you will need new injection after 5 – 7 years in average.
