Artefill – Post Injection Care
Hi Dr. Rivkin,
I was wondering, after having an ArteFill injection, are you prevented from doing anything you did before the ArteFill injection?
More Specifically: Can you work out and excerise intensly?
Can you take any medications or pills such as Advil, Tylenol, Zyrtec (I take Zyrtec at least once a month).
Nope, you can do anything you want!
Afterwards, I wouldn’t take Aspirin or Ibuprofen for a couple of days. Also, I wouldn’t manipulate the area very much for a few days, but you can touch it and wash your face – that’s all okay. Keeping the area clean is important for the first day or two especially.
Hope that helps
