Combining Injectables With Other Facial Procedures

Despite some sources advising that you can have a facial or microdermabrasion as soon as 1 week post an injectable session, it is not the best thing to do for your newly injected enhancements.


The injected product needs to finish maturing/ stabilizing in the skin before you bombard it with more action

Synergy effect

Many clinics now offer various combinations of different anti-ageing treatments. Skilled Therapists at LaserQueen Clinic offer your the knowledge of the effects of such combinations. Base your decisions on that knowledge. Correct combining and sequence of anti-agening treatments will ensure the safest delivery and the most effective outcomes for your skin.

Combining Injections and laser

As one of the absorbing targets (chromophores) in the skin when it comes to laser based skin rejuvenation treatments, is water, there is a theoretical risk of dissolution of newly injected gel like fillers, when such lasers are administered to treated these areas

We propose to have you laser based skin rejuvenation treatment done first and then the filler/ injections procedure, once the process of collagen remodelling has been completed. Avoid laser treatments after your injectable treatment for 3 weeks to allow the injected product to fully mature and stabilize



Injectables and chemical peels

All chemical peels elicit some amount of inflammation. This this inflammation has a theoretical risk of degradation of the newly injected dermal fillers.

We advise to defer medium-depth peels till the post-peel erythema fades or till collagen remodelling is completed approximately in 2.5-3 weeks



Injectables and microdermabration and other facials

Despite some sources advising that you can have a facial or microdermabrasion as soon as 1 week post an injectable session, it is not the best thing to do for your newly injected enhancements. The injected product needs to finish maturing/ stabilizing in the skin before you bombard it with more action.

Dermal fillers in particular are at high risk of being moved away from the injected site during even the most gentle muscle manipulations with facials or probe/sucking actions with microdermabrasion



Injections and Dermal Fillers

Combining skin preparation as well as fillers and anti-wrinkle Injections is a new rejuvenation paradigm called liquid facelift. Since the hyperactive or hypertonic muscles play a prominent role in producing wrinkles, it is better to relax the muscles first with the toxin injection, and then administer fillers about 2 weeks later. For the nasolabial groove, fillers are injected first and then the toxin is injected.

We found that the effectiveness of fillers (both gel like and non-gel like) were not altered by injections performed over areas treated with the filler.



What are injectables after care instructions?

It is normal to have some redness, swelling and tenderness in the treated area and this will pass quickly.

Injectable after care include

  • No harsh cosmetics and makeup on the areas treated until the redness & swelling are gone
  • Avoid exercising strenuously for about 48 hours
  • No sunbeds. No exposure to extreme cold until the redness and bruising are gone. For post lip enhancement however, ice will help to reduce swelling
  • Avoid products with AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids/Glycolics), BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids) or Retinoids for a week
  • No alcohol for 48 hours. It diliates blood vessels and may increase swelling or bleeding
  • Avoid blood thinners (Aspirin/Disprin and anti inflammatory for 48 hours.
  • Do drink plenty of water the day (approximate 8 glasses of water is recommended daily)
  • Gently massage any lumps in the area treated by dermal fillers. . It will help distribute the product evenly. Do this with clean hands to prevent any risk of infection.

There are no miracle cures; it’s about having the right product administered by the experienced cosmetic doctor in the right place to create the desired effect. Be sure to call on a qualified team to get the antiageing results you’re looking for.
