Why You Should Avoid Exercise After a Filler Injection?

Facial fillers are an excellent solution for those who want to turn back the hands of time without going under the knife. Whether it is a neuromodulator like Botox or a filler such as Juvederm, facial injections are a quick and relatively painless procedure that requires no social downtime. However, if your “social” time involves a hard or strenuous workout, you need to know the consequences.

After getting a facial filler treatment, it is recommended that you wait at least 24 to 48 hours before your resume exercise. What does cardio or weight lifting have to do with your recent facial rejuvenation treatment? The reason patients are advised to hold off on exercise is to reduce bruising. Many people turn to fillers due to their ability to provide effective results in a highly discreet process. In other words, you won’t have to hide behind closed doors after your treatment like you would if you had just undergone plastic surgery. The only thing that could ruin this perk is heavy bruising at the injection site.

Most aesthetic professionals, such as those at Olansky Dermatology Associates, have perfected their injection techniques to virtually eliminate facial bruising and swelling. However, when the tiny needle is injected beneath the intricate skin tissues of the face, it can rupture small blood vessels along the way. These blood vessels can heal and recovery quickly, but if you exercise and get your heart rate up, they could become more visible and result in delayed bruising after your treatment. Therefore, it is best to keep your blood pressure down as best you can, and let your facial rejuvenation products go to work.

If you want to take extra measures to reduce the likelihood of bruising, you can also follow a few tips before your injection therapy. Patients should stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, Excedrin, Advil or Aleve one week before your treatment and avoid taking St. John’s Wort or Vitamin E two to three days prior to your appointment.

If you do notice any bruising or swelling, use a cold compress on the area to minimize it. Most bruising is slight and can be easily concealed with makeup. To learn more about our non-invasive wrinkle treatments at Olansky Dermatology Associates, please call us today.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
