You’ve come in for your appointment, had your consultation and voila! You have a new pair of luscious new lips. However if you want to maintain their beauty, aftercare is super important. To ensure the best results from your lip filler treatment, follow these few rules that our Medical practitioners advise.
Before coming into the appointment there are some important things to note to help the treatment go smoothly. It is best not to wear any makeup on the area of the treatment as the area must be clean to avoid infection. Once you have had your treatment it is recommended not wearing makeup or lipstick for the rest of the day. Our trusty doctors also advise no smoking or consuming hot food or drinks for at least 4 hours after your treatment as this may affect the filler.
Within 24 hours there is no kissing allowed! Keep those gorgeous lips to yourselves. And lastly, for all our lovely sport and gym loving customers unfortunately no sport or excess physical activity is recommended within the 48 hour period from your treatment. You can sit back, chuck Netflix on and revel in your new lavish look.
Within the first week it is advised to stay away from the sauna and solarium. Also try to avoid excess sun exposure as this can have a detrimental effect on your lips. Remember to take your favourite sunhat to the beach! After the first 3 days, if you can see any slight unevenness or bumps in the treated area you can gently massage your lips. This will help evenly distribute the filler and release any small bubbles that may have formed.
Also, within the first 2 weeks it is important to not receive any facial massages or cosmetic facial treatments. These will interfere with the healing of your treatment. It is advised to not receive dental treatments and vaccinations within this time period too. In addition to this, within 4 weeks from your dermal lip filler treatment you should not have microblading treatment done or permanent makeup on your lips.
