We thought we’d drop a few lip filler tips in here for you:
Do not lick or bite your lips. Your saliva contains millions of bacteria, and your freshly injected lips have tiny, invisible entry points through which the filler was applied.
You can apply Lipsmart (available at our store) or aquaphor skin ointment over them to keep them hydrated, even right after injections.
You will be most swollen on the second day, and it usually takes about 6 days for you to see the full results. If you like the way you look on the second day, you probably need more filler, because you are looking at swelling, not filler.
If you are prone to getting cold sores, lip injections may trigger a flare up. Make sure you let your cosmetic injector know, and take the medication that you are prescribed at the time of injections and again 12 hours later.
If you experience any discomfort after your treatment, use an ice pack wrapped in a soft cloth and place over the lips. You may also take Tylenol.
Some people swell more than others. If you are a sweller, strenuous exercise will bring more blood flow to the area and prolong swelling. Avoiding salty food and alcohol will also help alleviate the swelling.
Contact your injector if you have extreme pain or a visible sore after your injections. This may indicate an infection and may need to be treated with a medication if necessary.
