Is it safe to massage the area after a dermal filler injection?

JUVEDERM® . 2 answers . 4 years ago

Does it become more swollen if the area is massaged after the injection? I am getting a lot of comments about how swollen my face is after the filler injections and I thought that would help.

In some cases, depending on the placement of the product, it does help to message the face. Messaging the face will not help with swelling, but may help to reposition the product after injection. The best course of action is to share your concerns with your injector and determine how to address your issues from there.

It depends on how much you massage and how much pressure you place. In general, I don't recommend it to my patients only because I don't feel patients know when to stop and when is too much. Instead, I recommend patients to use ice for 5 minutes at time for several times for up to 3 days.
