Lip Fillers Dos & Don’ts

Oct 9, 2020

Lip injections are one of the most common beauty procedures. It is so ordinary as having your nails or eyebrows done – a part of a usual routine. However, do you know all essential rules to follow to avoid severe side effects or complications, and make your lip fillers last longer, providing you with perfect juicy defined lips? Let’s check it now. In this article, we have gathered all the most important tips on what to do and what to avoid before, during, and after the procedure.

DO the research

This point is perhaps more relevant for those who are just thinking about filler injections but still hast a great value. So, what should you research? Well, first of all, you should find out everything about the procedure in general. Do not trust your satisfied friends or celebrities. Read about types of fillers, effects, side effects, duration, contraindications, check lip filler before and after outcomes, doctor and clinic you would like to go. Knowledgeable is armed. Make sure that lip injections are exactly what you are looking for, and you won’t regret it shortly after.

DO consult with the doctor

Many people trust their cosmetologist blindly and even do not ask any questions, and then wonder why their expectations do not meet reality. Research is a good thing, but the opinion of a specialist always matters. Discuss in detail the reason why you want to have lip filler injections, what are your concerns, what results you want to achieve, what are your fears about the procedure, history of previous diseases, how often are you expecting to repeat the procedure, etc. You can visit several doctors and check what they are ready to offer, what type and brand will work particularly in your case. Once again, knowledge is power.

DO go slow

When it comes to dermal fillers, it is very easy to overdo. More is not always better, especially if we are talking about face and lip injections. Discuss with the cosmetologist in detail the volume you want to achieve to determine the correct dosage of the filler, but always stick to the smaller amount. Otherwise, you risk looking overdone and unnatural. You can always have an additional injection if you feel you want more volume.

DO stick to the doctor’s recommendations

Many clients neglect the advice their cosmetologist give, thinking: “What might happen?” The answer is many things, starting with shorter-lasting of lip fillers and ending with severe side effects. Be extremely attentive when the doctor is telling you what you should and what you cannot do. Sometimes, it can keep you out of serious troubles. We will stop in more detail on what you should avoid when we speak about lip injections don’ts.

DON’T ✘ take blood thinners

You can do this neither before nor after the procedure. You must discuss it with the doctor and inform him/her if you have taken such medication before the injection. It may have fatal consequences. The thing is that although dermal fillers injection is an almost non-invasive procedure, blood thinners will prevent blood clotting, and even a small trace after the syringe may turn into a terrible bleeding wound.

 DON’T ✘ visit spa/sauna

This point concerns the before and after dermal fillers injections recommendations, and your doctor will specify for you the exact time frames when you should avoid any heating procedures: sauna, spa, hot bath, sunbathing, etc. It is harmful to the life of your filler and after-injection recovery, causing further inflammations, infections, problems with blood clotting, etc.

DON’T ✘put makeup

You can freely put makeup before lips injections, but no way three days after the procedure. It is explained by the fact your skin 1) is hurt by the syringes and needs to take rest; 2) has tiny fresh wounds, and your foundation, concealer, and powder can become the reason for infection, 3) became sensitive and can suffer from irritations or even allergies.

DON’T ✘ exercise

This restriction should take place just the first few days after the procedure. After three-four days, you can return to your usual fitness, yoga, dancing, or other workouts. When you train, you sweat, creating a perfect environment for the bacteria. It may lead to infections, inflammations, irritations. I’ll tell you a secret that training boosts metabolism; thus, hyaluronic acid in the filler will be digested faster. So, if you want your dermal filler to last longer, slow down with the training intensity.

DON’T ✘ visit pool

Frankly speaking, any public place is not a perfect choice to visit after an invasive beauty procedure. It is a hotbed for bacteria and viruses that are so dangerous for your skin during this period. We can say the same about rivers, lakes, seas, oceans. Avoid swimming in public places for the first few days until you see that your skin has recovered after the injections.

Final word

This was a short guide for the before and after dermal fillers dos and don’ts. Love your skin, take care of it, protect from the harmful environment, carefully choose the clinic and cosmetologist, do not try to save money on the procedure, and enjoy the perfect outcomes.
