Our Aftercare Guide to getting the most out of your filler treatments!
Whether you’re researching to see if cosmetic fillers are right for you, or you have just had a treatment and want to know how to maintain the results, we’re here to help! We put together this Aftercare Guide so that you can review all of our different options (areas treated, types of fillers, fillers vs. neuromodulators, etc.) here or watch a number of instructional and informational videos here.
Botox® and Dysport have long been described as the “gateway” into medical aesthetics. Many of our new patients request consultations for Dysport injections, but actually need something else based on area of the face/body and expectations. While there are a myriad of uses for both, sometimes a different treatment plan makes more sense. This is a large part of why we offer a free consultation with the Dr. – we don’t want to treat you with Dysport if there is a better alternative to give you the absolute best results!
Below you will find instructions for pre and post treatment to ensure the best possible results! We’ve also put together a full pre-treatment guide for some of our most popular procedures that you can download and review before your next appointment.
Dr. Janowski has been injecting dermal filler for as long as they have been on the market (over 13 years) – and works with thousands of patients annually. He regularly pursues advanced training – and trains other physician injectors for two of the largest filler makers in the world. The injection of filler is an expertise – and there are many kinds of fillers – all with different consistencies and best uses. Like multiple paint brushes in an artist’s tool kit – you want to work with someone who knows how to use more than just Juvederm.
The number one way to ensure you have your best results with filler is to work with a highly trained, physician-expert – like Dr. Janowski.

Additional Dermal Filler Aftercare Recommendations
- For most patients, the benefits of dermal fillers can be enhanced by using a medical-grade skincare system, such as Obagi. Products containing Vitamin-C can strengthen the skin and improve laxity and texture. Additionally, use of Tretonoin (or Retin-A) helps rebuild cells in the skin’s epidermis (or top layer). Over time, Tretonoin can strengthen skin, improving firmness and resiliency. Tretonoin (Retin-A) is available for purchase in our offices – or through a prescription. Ask Dr. Janowski about the best concentration for your skin.
- 98% of skin damage (aging, wrinkles, dark spots, and hyper-pigmentation) is caused by sun damage. Wearing sunscreen is critical to maintaining the look and health of your skin. Sunscreen should be re-applied after every 4 hours of sun exposure. Dr. Janowski recommends a sunscreen with an SPF 45 or greater.
- If it is difficult for you to reapply sunscreen throughout the day, consider adding a powdered sunscreen (we recommend Bare Essentials) to your daily routine, which can be brushed on to the face and chest periodically.

How Long Will Dermal Fillers Last?
The short answer is, of course, it depends – what areas were treated, and with which specific product. Cosmetic fillers are long lasting, but not permanent.
Most patients choose to have a follow up treatment 6-12 months after initial treatment for wrinkles. For lip injections or lip enhancements, we recommend a follow up visit after about 6-9 months.
