Cooling To Help With Swelling After Your Injection


Swelling after your injectables procedure, whether it was for Botox or filler, is very common. Because the product is delivered by a needle, swelling is practically unavoidable and can vary from mild to severe. Usually, how much swelling you experience depends on how much product was administered, how many areas were treated, and your body’s response to treatment.

Swelling is caused by increased blood flow to the treated area, delivering white blood vessels, nutrients and other vital substances to promote healing. It is also caused by the accumulation of other fluid, particularly water.

How to Reduce Swelling

The easiest way to reduce swelling is applying something cool to the treated area. That’s why we have plenty of cold packs that you can use after your treatment.

Applying a cold pack to the area decreases the blood flow to the area by constricting blood vessels, which also reduces fluid. Chemicals that are released by traumatized cells are also decreased.

However, it is important that you do not use the cold pack for too long. Cooling the skin for an excessive period of time can also compromise your recovery, since reduced blood flow also prevents the delivery of nutrients and all the other good stuff that promotes healing. It may also increase your risk of infection.
