You can put make-up on the day after you have anti-wrinkle injections or dermal filler treatment. The pharmaceutical companies advise us to tell our patients no make-up for 4hours after injection. However, we suggest patients to avoid wearing make-up until the day after treatment. This will help minimise any risk of infection, as dermal fillers stay in the skin for a long period of time and are more subsequent to infection than anti-wrinkle injections. Unfortunately, they can be very resistant to treatment with antibiotics.

Best to also clean your make-up brushes at least once per week, and make sure your hands are clean if you use them to apply make-up, as they are the perfect carrier for bacteria. Sometimes, we ask patients when was the last time they cleaned their brushes, and they can’t give an answer.
