Injectable Eye Fillers Aftercare and Management

Injectable or soft-tissue fillers can help fill in deep facial lines and creases, restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. When injected beneath the skin, these injectable facial fillers can help plump up creased wrinkles and sunken areas of the face adding fullness to areas such as the lips, cheeks and lift the upper and lower eyelids

Injectable Eye Fillers After Care in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles

Upper and lower injectable eye fillers aftercare is simple and does not generally interfere with our Beverly Hills patient’s daily routines. Patients should avoid over exposure to heat and sunlight, as they might increase swelling or bruising at injection site. Patients should also avoid chemical peels, skin resurfacing, and laser enhancements because those procedures can cause inflammation to injection areas.

Injectable eye fillers post treatment pain should be minimal – while swelling should subdue in the first few days after the injection. Upper and lower injectable eye fillers healing time varies depending on the individual being treated. Patients can generally expect some pain, redness, swelling, and possibly itching – swelling may last up to 36 hours.

Occidental vs. Asian Upper Eyelids

The Asian upper eyelid also appears more full and “puffier” than the Occidental upper eyelid. The reasons include the following differences between Asian upper eyelids and Occidental upper eyelids:

  1. Orbital fat is also located at a lower position in the upper eyelids which also herniates easier and as a result “bulges” easier.
  2. Thicker brow fat which allows for a more prominent eyebrow.
  3. Thicker subcutaneous fat layer of the skin which allows for a difficult crease to form.

Injectable Eye Fillers Recovery and Management Tips

The benefits of eyelid injections or fillers are easy to see: the treatment is fast, minimally painful, and easy to recovery from. Dr. Zoumalan usually sees his Beverly Hills patients the week after he has given a filler injection to make sure that his patients are recovering as quickly as possible. He will make sure that his patients are not experiencing any discomfort and that they receive beautiful looking results.

  • All injectable eye fillers should be performed in a medical setting with sterile instruments. Treatments done in areas such as hotels, homes, spas, or resorts are not being considered a medical environment regardless of who is performing the procedure.
  • Do not let price be your guide – if you are offered an eye filler treatment that costs less than the standard treatment, it is likely that some compromise is being made. Whether it is the skill of the provider or the quality of the filler or products, you should not risk making a bargain with your face.
  • The least risks and best results come from using the right equipment and latest technology. That is why you should only have eyelid fillers injected by a board-certified cosmetic eyelid surgeon with ongoing, special training.
  • Preserve your upper and lower eyelid fillers by using a daily moisturizer with high SPF or sunscreen. Sunscreen helps to protects against post-inflammatory pigment changes due to the needle sticks from injections.
