When it comes to fillers, intense heat can cause the product to break down more quickly or produce less effective results. For this reason, it's best to avoid exposure to intense heat for at least 12 to 24 hours after your appointment. Fortunately, studies have shown that lasers can be used after filler injections without increasing side effects or decreasing the effectiveness of the filler. This includes studies on Thermage, infrared light, and other treatments.
However, some doctors have used a 1064nm laser to try and reduce the effects of hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvaderm or Restylane. If you're concerned about the longevity of your fillers, it's best to speak with the doctor who gave the injections and see what they recommend. In addition, there are a few things you can do to help your fillers last longer. Try sleeping on your back, as this removes the pressure that can cause the filler to break down faster.
Additionally, be gentle on your skin and avoid rubbing or pressing on your face during your skincare routine. Finally, when it comes to sunbathing after lip fillers, it's best to avoid it as heat can lower the water content in both the skin and the filler if heat reaches the filler. Skin plumping and tightening technologies provide safe and synergistic results.
