First of all, avoid all platelet inhibitors such as aspirin, alcohol and NSAID’s (and anything that contains those ingredients) for 7-10 days before your procedure. Also eat pineapple during this time period. Make sure that your injector is very experienced in lip augmentation, and ask them to inject very slowly since the faster the injection, the more it hurts and the more chance of bruising. After the injections, do not “use” your lips for anything except eating and use ice packs at least 20 minutes per hour until the swelling goes down. Remember to sleep with your head elevated so that there is less chance of swelling in your lips overnight.
Full Lips/Ombre Lips procedure is one of the latest techniques in the line of permanent make up. The initial must be followed by a touch up procedure 3 months from the first session. The more natural look effect, the more fading effect. So touch up must be done to freshen up. Also, it is required since the lips are very vascular and the body metabolizes the lip color at a rapid rate compared to other body parts which are not as vascularized. It is a surgical or non-surgical lip enhancement technique. A procedure that would give a fuller and plumper appearance to the lips giving clients a more desirable result.
Recovery time for Lip Enhancement
Every patient’s recovery time is different after any procedure. Typically, lip swelling after filler will significantly decrease after 2-3 days but for some patients it may last as long as 5-7 days. Any swelling or bruising should be completely gone by two weeks. We recommend that you increase your water in-take before and after injection.
What are the aftercare instructions for lips?
It takes about a month for the lips to be fully healed from the initial procedure. You must avoid the following during the healing process:
- You must drink with a straw
- When it feels chap, do not peel it
- Do not apply any soap
- Avoid too much UV exposure
- No oral activity
- Apply some gloss as it helps during healing period
The end result should be a balance within the face, allowing your eyes, cheeks, nose and lips to become harmonious. Augmenting the lips so they appear fuller and more luscious creates a healthier appearance and sensual appeal. This improved appearance can have a big effect on how you feel about yourself.
