What Can I Expect in the Recovery from Cosmetic Injectables?
A major benefit of cosmetic injectables is the quick improvement patients can typically achieve after only one session. You can resume your normal activities right after your session, which is why cosmetic injectables are often referred to as “lunch hour” treatments – they have a convenience factor that many other treatment options do not offer. Dr. W. Matthew White takes the time to fully discuss with you what you can expect throughout your treatment, including how long cosmetic injectable results last, as well as what you may experience during your recovery.
Should you opt for a dermal filler, like JUVÉDERM® or RADIESSE®, you may begin to see the positive effects immediately following your treatment. This improvement continues to take effect over the first few days. Keep in mind as you recover, symptoms like slight swelling, bruising, or redness may occur but should fade within a few days. If you undergo BOTOX® injections, side effects are typically minimal, but you may experience slight numbness, bruising, or swelling – these should diminish over the first couple days.
Though minimal, side effects are common following an injectable treatment. However, if you are concerned with any symptoms you are experiencing and think they may be abnormal, please do not hesitate to contact our office. Dr. White can assess your situation and determine whether your recovery is going smoothly, or if you are in need of medical attention.
