Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with beauty and youth and the trend in temporary lip augmentation with dermal fillers grows ever-popular, either to complement your appearance or correct asymmetry. The great news is that very little lip filler aftercare is required, the procedure is quick, and the results can enhance your features and your confidence.
Lip Augmentation Procedure And Lip Filler Aftercare
At PHI Clinic we only use the leading market brand of dermal fillers Juvederm by Allergan. Juvederm has developed products specific to the lips that are beautifully malleable, adds definition and when injected well avoids the ‘trout pout’ overdone look and instead can be subtly introduced to enhance and restore your naturally beautiful countenance.
Fillers can be applied to enhance and increase the fullness of thin lips and give the mouth area a youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used to smooth out Lipstick Lines or Smokers’ Lines around the mouth.
Lip Filler Aftercare
Lip injections results can last up to 12 months. You will see an immediate result after visiting our Harley Street clinic for lip enhancement, however, this will not be your final result. Optimum results will be seen after a few weeks as the product retains water to rejuvenate and add volume.
The treated area might swell ever so slightly and in worst cases, some bruising may appear. This should subside after a few days though and most side effects will be minor, and you will be able to resume most activities once the procedure is done. You may apply ice to your lips afterward using an ice pack or an ice cube covered in cloth so it doesn’t stick to the lips, which will help ease swelling, bruising, or any soreness. Arnica is great for bruising and can be taken prior to and post your procedure.
Try to avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours after you have your lips augmented as elevated blood pressure and heart rate from exercise may make swelling or bruising worse, however, it is fine to engage in a light activity like walking. Remember to stay hydrated as drinking plenty of water will help your body heal. Avoid high temperatures like steam rooms or saunas, for 48 hours after treatment as the increased heat can sometimes make the swelling more pronounced. Do not sleep on your face for a few nights after as this may be uncomfortable and try to avoid wearing makeup on your lips for up to 24 hours after.
