How soon after dermal fillers can I fly? This is a common question, and a valid one as many people have their treatment before they jet off on holiday, or to a special occasion. Nicole recommends waiting 3-4 days and ideally a week if you’re going to fly for over three hours. Fillers are all about the interaction with skin tissues and hydration levels, so being in a pressurised cabin can result in unnecessary swelling and bruising. Remember, icepacks are your friend if you do swell or bruise, and some find arnica very helpful too. You should also avoid exercise, hot showers and rubbing your face for the first 24 hours and to make sure you get the best results. Love your face!
