Let’s get started!
How is Lip Filler Done?
Lip filler is a cosmetic procedure that involves the injection of a gel-like substance into the lips to enhance their volume and shape. The procedure is carried out by an experienced injector who carefully injects the filler in the right amount and place to achieve the desired outcome.
The process is quick and minimally invasive, and you may be given a numbing cream or ice to alleviate any discomfort.
Is Getting Lip Fillers Uncomfortable?
Discomfort during the procedure can vary from minimal to mild, depending on individual pain tolerance, the injector’s technique, and the application of numbing agents.
We use topical Lidocaine or administer a dental block for pain management.
What are Aftercare Tips for Lip Fillers?
After getting lip fillers, it’s important to take some aftercare precautions. For the first 24 – 72 hours, avoid exercising and drinking alcohol. Additionally, do not massage the treated area.
If you experience bruising, apply cool compresses to the affected area, take Tylenol for pain relief and/or use topical arnica to manage pain, swelling, and bruising.
Also, avoid using straws or engaging in oral intercourse for 14 days after the treatment.
