Some patients experience mild swelling or slight bruising, itching, pain, discoloration, and tenderness after treatment, but it typically subsides after a few days. If your lips were injected, the swelling may be more significant.
Please ensure you are guarding yourself against infection by keeping your skin clean for at least 48 hours. You may be able to apply makeup after 12 hours, but please do so gently. Please avoid any excessive skin rubbing or skin manipulation following the treatment.
After 24 hours, you will be able to exercise normally and consume alcohol.
Please avoid exposure to hot and cold environments and avoid direct sun exposure for at least 2 weeks. If you have noticed any swelling or redness persisting more than 1 week following your treatment, please contact our office.
We will also book a follow-up appointment to assess the outcome of the treatment and to take personal photos. We can provide any additional injections for an additional fee.
