Check out below the 10 things to know before getting lip injections.
1. Most doctors have their own preferred filler formula
Some cosmetic doctors have their own preferable formula, that’s why it’s important to ask about the difference between each brand. If you’d like to know more information or would like to book a consultation please give one of our clinics a call.
2. Lip Filler results are immediate
Although your lips may appear slightly swollen at first, you can see the results immediately. Swelling may last a few days and depending on the individual you may experience slight bruising which can last a few days. This is often easily covered with lipstick so don’t stress however try to book an appointment a week prior to any upcoming events.
3. Your lips won’t feel different
Even though your lips will look different, the feeling won’t change. If your chosen doctor or nurse has experience you shouldn’t experience any lumps or bumps!
4. The procedure may feel a little uncomfortable
Basically any needle going into our body will never be a comfortable feeling, this is why it is important to know that your treatment may sting a little. At our Skincare Australia clinics we apply a numbing cream to your lips prior to the procedure to help reduce any discomfort.
5. Down time basically does not exist
Although it is important to avoid activities like exercise the day of your procedure, afterward you can continue with your everyday life.
6. 10 Days prior to your procedure avoid…
Painkillers, fish oil and vitamin E. These medicines tend to thin your blood which can make your skin prone to bruising and bleeding.
7. Don’t worry, bruising and bleeding is expected
As mentioned above bruising may appear however it should fade after 5-7 days. An ice pack can help with this.
8. If you have a history with cold sores, heres what to do
It’s important to know that injections could trigger a cold sore, so take prevention medication 2 days before your procedure.
9. You can choose which areas you’d like more plump than others
During your consultation let us know where you would like more plump lips. Your injector will advise what they think will be best for your lips.
10. Lip fillers are often reversible
Although dissolving your lip fillers may not be the most ideal thing to do, it is possible. Check with us during your consultation and we let you know the details.
