Some swelling and redness around the injection site is normal after having lip fillers. Patients should not worry if it feels tender and this should not last long. But if you do have prolonged discomfort after the procedure, be sure to contact Clinica Lase right away. A cold compress can help to relief any discomfort in the meantime. Patients can take paracetamol if they are experiencing a headache after lip fillers.
To encourage the best results from lip fillers, patients are advised to exaggerate facial movements. This can help to work the product into the muscles. Of course, this does not mean that if you do not do this, your treatment will be affected.
After having lip fillers, it is recommended not to apply any products that contain retinoids, AHAs or BHAs. In addition, any facial treatments should be avoided for around 48 hours, as well as facial massages.
Patients can wear mineral makeup after having lip fillers. This can be applied in the 48 hours after having this procedure. Just be sure to wash any sponges or brushes thoroughly to ensure there is no risk of infection.
