Lip augmentation procedures create the fuller lips that so many of us are after and injectables are an incredible way to achieve the look without surgery. Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that soft tissue fillers were within the top 5 minimally invasive procedures of the year 2017 with 2.7 million of us taking advantage of them! More and more women and men have found that injectables are a non-invasive way to alter their look without the pain and downtime of the knife. One way to take advantage of these in office procedures is to utilize Juvéderm or Restylane for lip augmentation and Fountain of You is proud to offer a full suite of both fillers.
If you are considering lip augmentation and wonder if there are things you should do to prepare yourself, here are some things to consider:
Avoid Blood Thinners
You do not want to take any blood thinning medications or consume products that could do the same at least 3 days before your treatment. This means you should avoid aspirin or Ibuprofen, Aleve, etc. Tylenol is okay. You will also want to avoid fish oils as well as alcohol (sorry). Why? You don’t want excessive bruising after your treatment and blood thinning agents can contribute to this.
Don’t Drink Alcohol
Okay, alcohol can act as a blood thinner and we just covered that. However, it is also inflammatory and you DO NOT want that so avoid the vino for at least 3 days before your treatment and follow the same advice afterward.
Don’t Massage Your Lips
It may be tempting to reach out and touch your plumped-up pout but doing so could move the filler around and mess with the finished look.
Don’t Exercise for 24 hours
Here’s a great reason to take a rest day, just in case you needed one. The reason for this is that exercise increases blood flow, which is generally a great thing. However, you don’t want this when your lips are healing.
Don’t Freak Out
You will experience some swelling post procedure but know this isn’t the final product. Give your body time to heal.
