Sleeping on your back is the safest position after any cosmetic procedure. The first night after your treatment, sleep with your head elevated (propped up with an extra pillow) to help avoid/reduce swelling and to ensure that the newly-injected filler stays in place.
Can I Sleep On My Side After I Get Fillers? Try to sleep on your back for 24-48 hours after filler injections. After that, you can safely sleep on your side without worrying that the filler will move with gravity.
Make sure to sleep on your back with your head elevated using 2 pillows for 3 nights-this will ensure that the newly injected filler stays in place. Another option would be to use a wrap around neck pillow to stabilize your head.
Do not touch or rub injected site for 2-4 hours following treatment. Avoid exercise and sweating for the remainder of the day and no lying down or leaning forward for 2-4 hours after treatment. There can be a slight chance of bruising at the treated site, this is temporary.
It is recommended not to sleep on your side for a few days after getting dermal fillers. Try to lay straight on your back, with your head slightly elevated to avoid any kind of pressure on the treatment site and to reduce swelling.

Do fillers look better after a few days?
Fortunately, dermal fillers work very quickly, and you won't have to wait twelve months to see the full benefits of your injections. That said, these injectable treatments take some time to integrate into your tissues, and it's normal for your dermal filler to take up to two weeks to fully settle into your face.
Avoid topical products such as Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinol, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, or any “anti-aging” products. Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or using hair removal cream on the area to be treated.
Some patients like to sleep on their back the first night after treatment, although there is no hard evidence that sleeping position might affect your filler treatment. Avoid sleeping on your face for a week after treatment.
It is advisable that you do not touch the area for 6 hours. Do not apply make up for approximately 6 hours unless it is mineral based. Avoid exposure to UV, extreme heat i.e. sauna, steam rooms, sun beds etc. as this may increase discomfort and swelling.
Sleeping on your back is important because the Botox injections need time to settle into your muscles. Yes, laying on your face could prevent the injections from settling in and lead to you having less than perfect results.
The feeling in your face or lips after you have dermal filler injections is fullness in an area that previously didn't feel like that. This is because a small pocket of fluid has been added under your dermal layer. Your sensory perception of your own flesh will adjust and you won't notice after a while.
Swelling subsides, typically, within a few days. It's most apparent 24 to 72 hours after treatment before starting to subside gradually. Very occasionally, swelling can last from several days to four weeks.
After dermal filler injections I recommend waiting 2 weeks prior to getting a facial with extractions. At that time the filler is integrated into the tissue and will not move out of place. Also after 2 weeks any post-injection swelling or bruising should be resolved.
The concept of 'filler fatigue' is a relatively new idea which describes undesirable consequences of overuse of dermal fillers. The theory is that repeated over-injection of fillers into the skin can stretch it and/or weigh it down, so that when the fillers wear off, it is looser than it was in the first place.
Filler migration is the movement of a dermal filler from its injection site to another area of the body. While it is possible for fillers to migrate, this side effect is extremely rare and can be avoided by choosing a qualified injector.
AVOID: Alcohol, caffeine, niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours after your treatment. AVOID: Vigorous exercise and sun and heat exposure for 3 days after treatment. DISCONTINUE: Retin 2 days after treatment.
Eat plenty of hydrating fruits and vegetables and try to avoid excess sodium, which may worsen swelling. Avoid high temperatures, like steam rooms, saunas, or heated exercise classes for 48 hours after treatment. High heat can make swelling more pronounced.
Can you Exercise After Lip Filler? Strenuous exercise should be avoided for 24–48 hours after getting lip filler. Increased physical activity and body temperature can cause blood flow to the lip area, worsening any swelling, bruising, or discomfort.
Treating with 1ml at a time is certainly appropriate for some areas, such as volumising lips or having smaller tweakments into other areas of the face. Sometimes, however, more than 1ml may be required – in the cheeks, for example – as 1ml may not make a discernible difference.
While cheek filler generally has very low risks, it's important to note the following: You will have some swelling in the area you've had filler injected. In some cases bruising can occur. One cheek may look slightly different to the other cheek, but this happens with patients who are asymmetrical to begin with.
You can use your regular cleanser and moisturizer, plus all your serums on skin that has Botox or injections just done. If you find that you have redness or sensitivity from the injections you might want to, after a couple of days, use a product that is soothing with aloe vera, like ASDM Beverly Hills Calming Gel Mask.
