When can I fly after having dermal fillers? | Cityskin Cosmetic Clinic

We recommend that you should wait 7 days before you fly after dermal filler treatment. This is especially important for long haul flights where you will be exposed to decreased cabin pressure for longer.

Medical literature recommends not flying after dermal filler treatment to avoid swelling and bruising that seems to worsen in the pressurized cabin of an aircraft. Fillers are hydrophilic meaning they attract water and change skin hydration levels, so some people are already prone to swelling after treatment.

With the aircraft pressure changes, there is unpredictable swelling and fillers also interact with the tissues of the face so there is the potential for complications leaving you very puffy and swollen.

The other issue is that if there is any problem or complication following filler treatment it is better if the cosmetic injector who did the treatment can examine you which is not possible if you fly soon after having a filler. At Cityskin we have a highly experienced team and 24 hour support so patients can call us any time about their treatment if they have any concerns.

So if you are going to be flying make sure you come and see us at Cityskin for dermal fillers at least 1 week prior to your flight. If you are having anti wrinkle injections (botulinum toxin) you can fly the next day; there is no need to wait.
