Belkyra Aftercare

  • Sensation or bruising in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection and generally disappears in a few days. The initial swelling after a lip treatment may last longer. If symptoms persist or other reactions occur please contact your physician.
  • Apply a cool compress for 10 minutes every hour on the day of treatment
    (do not apply ice directly on your skin).
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Do not expose the area to intense heat (e.g. solarium or sauna).
  • Pain relief such as Panadol may be taken if needed to maintain comfort.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Do not use AHA, Retinols/Vitamin C therapy or oil-based make-up for the first 24 hours.
  • Avoid facials, facial waxing, Glycolic or AHA peels, IPL or energy-based treatments and microdermabrasion for two weeks after treatment. Please check with your physician before undergoing other facial treatments within this time.
  • Do not massage the treated area for 48 hours
  • There is a small chance that a treatment may induce an outbreak of facial cold sores in patients with previous history of cold sores.
  • As with all injectable filler treatments there is a very small potential for vascular (blood) flow issues. Signs of this may be changes in skin colour, blanching and/or mottled appearance, pimples, blistering or pain. It must be noted that this can occur either at the injection site or anywhere away from the treated area.
