Winter is a Great Time for Facial Fillers

Facial Fillers

For most of us, winter is the time to bundle up and avoid the cold. But did you know that winter is the perfect time to receive facial fillers? If you have been considering facial fillers but were afraid to undergo a procedure during the cold winter months, here are some reasons to reconsider.

Fillers Can Counteract Winter’s Drying Effects

Harsh winds and biting cold temperatures can zap your skin of moisture, leaving your face looking and feeling older. Facial fillers add volume to your skin, giving it a more youthful, moisturized look.

Put Your Best Face Forward for Those Holiday Photos

As we emerge from the isolation of the pandemic, most of us are planning to attend holiday celebrations. Facial fillers can give you a youthful glow in photographs, making the season just a bit jollier.

Fight Winter Gloom

Shorter days and fewer opportunities for outdoor activities can leave you feeling down. If you have been considering facial fillers, scheduling your procedure during the cold winter months can make dreary days more enjoyable, and you’ll be ahead of the game when spring weather arrives.

Things to Watch Out for During Winter Facial Filler Treatment

Even though winter is a great time to schedule facial fillers, there are some side effects to cold-weather facial fillers:

  • Redness – If you leave a warm room and step outside into cold air, blood flow increases to your cheeks. After facial fillers, you may notice a little extra redness when exposed to cold, but this will recede once the inflammation from the procedure goes away.
  • Tenderness – Cold can intensify tenderness, so you may want to avoid outdoor activities for a few days following your procedure.

Extra Winter Precautions

As you heal from your facial filler procedure, following these steps can make the healing process easier:

  • Don’t forget to moisturize – Moisturizers are important in winter regardless of any procedure you may have, but it is especially important after facial fillers. Apply a high-quality moisturizer to minimize dry, itchy winter skin.
  • Limit outdoor time for a few days following your procedure to allow for the healing process.
  • Stay warm when going outside by using a thicker facial mask or scarf.

If you have been considering facial fillers, winter is a great time to schedule! Call the office of Dr. Maurice Khosh today to schedule your consultation.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.
Frieda S.
i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
