There’s very little downtime after a Plasma Facelift, so you should be able to go back to work the next day. You’ll likely have mild bruising, tenderness, and swelling for a week or two, mostly due to the filler; HGF is just fluid that gets reabsorbed after a couple of days. Applying ice or a cold compress intermittently after injections can help ease the swelling.
Lumps and bumps that occur after filler usually resolve on their own, but icing and massaging the area can help smooth them out (it may help the HGF be absorbed more quickly too). Just don’t press your skin too hard, or the filler could move.
You should avoid direct sunlight for the first few days and be extra diligent about wearing sunscreen. Doctors also recommend not wearing makeup or washing your face for at least 12 hours after treatment and avoiding strenuous activity for the first day—it can bring blood to the skin and increase the risk of bruising.
Avoiding vigorous activities will also minimize migration or displacement of the filler.
