Lip Fillers

Are injections that give the lips a more plump and full appearance. The injections are composed mainly of hyaluronic acid. We use products such as: Juvederm, restylane and versa according to the needs/wants of every client. The procedure is minimally invasive, and it just takes about 20-30 minutes.

Lip Filler Aftercare

1.- Your lips will likely be swollen after the procedure. You may also notice some redness or bruising at the injections sites, which is normal. Most side effects will be minor, and you will be able to resume most activities once the procedure is done.

2.- Apply ice to your lips afterward using an ice pack or an ice cube covered in cloth (so it doesn’t stick to the lip and cause pain). This will help ease, bruising, and any other pain.

3.- Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours after you get lip or any other dermal fillers. Elevated blood pressure and heart rate from exercise may make swelling or bruising worse. You can take Arnica for bruising if your doctor approves. It’s fine to engage in light activity like walking.

4.- Stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help your body heal.

5.- Eat plenty of hydrating fruits and vegetables and try to avoid excess sodium, which may worsen swelling.

6.- Avoid high temperatures like steam rooms, saunas, or heated exercise classes for 48 hours after treatment. High heat can make swelling more pronounced.

7.- Ask your doctor which painkillers are OK to take in the days after your treatment. Normally Tylenol will be fine, but not blood-thinning medications like ibuprofen.

8.- If you’re getting lip fillers for a specific event, make sure to leave plenty of time in
between the procedure and the event to allow your lips to properly recover.

9.- Try to sleep with your head elevated on pillows to reduce swelling. Do not sleep on your face.

 

10.- Avoid makeup on your lips for up to 24 hours after.

Dermal Fillers

Are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. They add volume to weakened facial features and can stimulate collagen growth. Each dermal filler is unique but similar in two ways. First, they plump skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Secondly, dermal fillers motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to a more natural, youthful appearance. Dermal fillers approved by the FDA are minimally invasive and very safe. As with any procedure, there are possible risks, the most common being post-procedure bruising and swelling which are usually minimal and resolve quickly. Treatments typically take 20-40 minutes and the amount of dermal filler needed will depend on volume loss and the areas you would like to restore to its natural beauty. You will see results immediately after treatment.
