Dermal Filler Treatment and Flying: 

After dermal filler treatment, it is recommended to wait at least 7 days before flying, particularly for long haul flights. The pressurised cabin environment can exacerbate swelling and bruising, which are common side effects of fillers. Since fillers attract water and can affect skin hydration levels, some individuals may be more prone to swelling after treatment. The pressure changes during the flight can lead to unpredictable swelling and potential complications, resulting in a puffy and swollen appearance. It is advisable to avoid flying immediately after filler treatment to allow for proper healing and to address any potential complications. If you have upcoming travel plans, we recommend scheduling your dermal filler treatment at Cityskin at least 1-2 weeks prior to your flight. 

Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Flying: 

You can fly on the same day as receiving anti-wrinkle injections. The product does not spread further due to flying, and there is no increased risk of a heavy eyelid. Many cabin staff and pilots receive anti-wrinkle injections and continue flying on the same day without any issues. 

Flying After Double Chin Injections: 

Regarding double chin injections, there is no clear consensus on the waiting period before flying. However, as a general guideline, it is recommended to wait 48 hours before flying domestically and 1 week before flying internationally after double chin treatment to account for potential swelling. 

At Cityskin in Melbourne, we specialise in anti-wrinkle injections and double chin treatments. Our comprehensive treatment guide provides detailed information about these procedures and their benefits. Feel free to contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation.
