"Preparing for Lip Fillers: Steps to Take Before Your Treatment"

It's important to follow these guidelines to ensure the best possible results from your treatment.

Top Three Pre-Lip Filler Care Tips 

  1. Avoid taking blood-thinning medications and supplements.
  2. Avoid consuming alcohol or smoking, as they can increase the risk of complications during the procedure.
  3. Avoid scheduling the treatment close to your menstrual cycle, as your lips may be more sensitive and prone to swelling during this time.

If you are pregnant, nursing, or allergic to any of the components, do not use dermal fillers.

The Treatment Day

  • Bring a "clean face" to work, meaning one that has been washed and is makeup-free.
  • During the procedure, a topical anesthetic may be used to increase your comfort. A local anesthetic may occasionally be administered into or close to the area(s) that need to be treated.

The First Hour After Fillers: What to Do

    • Avoid touching or rubbing your lips: After your treatment, your lips may be sensitive and swollen. To reduce the risk of infection or other complications, avoid touching or rubbing your lips for at least 24 hours.

    • Apply ice to reduce swelling: It's common to experience some swelling or bruising after lip filler treatment. To minimize swelling, you can apply an ice pack or a bag of frozen peas to your lips for 10-15 minutes at a time. Be sure to wrap the ice pack in a clean towel or cloth to protect your skin.

    • Avoid strenuous activity: For the first 24 hours after your lip filler treatment, it's best to avoid any strenuous physical activity that may increase your heart rate or blood pressure. This can help prevent excessive bleeding or swelling in the treated area

    • The Doctor should apply a professional After Injection Balm like our After Injection Lip Recovery Balm from Monika Heiligmann 

How to Reduce Swelling After Lip Injections: Post-Treatment Care Instructions

Within 6 to 10 hours of your lip injection treatment, it's important to take some steps to minimize swelling and discomfort. Here are some post-treatment care instructions to follow:

      • If you notice a visible bump or firmness in the treated area(s), gently massage the area. These areas will typically soften and settle with time, usually within 1-2 weeks.
      • Avoid intense heat in the treated area(s) until swelling and redness have resolved. This means staying away from sunbathing, saunas, and hairdryers.
      • To help reduce swelling, take an antihistamine, if your Doctor recommended it.
      • You may apply sunscreen and makeup to the treated area(s) but we recommend staying out of the sun and do not use strongly pigmented makeup
