What to Avoid Immediately After Lip Fillers
Here are a few things we recommend avoiding after your lip filler treatment with the London Lip Clinic.
This covers the basic advice of things you should not do before you arrive for your lip filler appointment at our London Lip Clinic. Rupesh will discuss all and other these important points at your consultation.
Stop Smoking before your Lip treatment
Smoking can increase your risk of infections and also misplace your freshly filled filler. Hence its important not to smoke immediately after getting lip filler treatment done at London Lip Clinic.
Rupesh says: “Smoking can be hugely detrimental to your health and although it won’t directly affect the results of the Lip Filler treatment, it will continue to dry out and age your skin causing premature lines and wrinkles. Smoking narrows the blood vessels in the upper, outer layers of your skin. This in turn limits the blood flow to the skin, meaning your skin doesn’t receive as much oxygen or as many nutrients. The result is wrinkling, sagging, discolouration and age spots”.
No Make Up when you arrive at your Lip Filler Appointment
Its best not to use any make up on and around your lips for at least four hours before your lip filler procedure. Again this is to avoid any infections which may be caused by the bacteria present in your old make-up. Please make sure you do not apply any make up before you come to the London Lip Clinic.
Rupesh says: “You should also avoid wearing makeup around the lip area and forgo lipstick just after lip filler treatment, ideally until Day 3”.
Avoid Alcohol before your Filler Appointment
Alcohol should be avoided at least 24hrs after your Lip Filler London procedure. This is because it can cause bruising and inflammation due to its blood thinning properties. It is also a good idea to avoid alcohol a few days before your procedure at our London Lip Clinic.
Rupesh says: “Alcohol can act as a blood thinner and should be avoided after lip injections for at least 24 hours. Consuming alcohol after lip fillers can increase the likelihood of swelling, inflammation, and bruising hence delaying the revovery.”
Don’t Fly after your Lip Filler Appointment
We recommend you not to fly after any Juvederm dermal lip filler procedures for at least seven days. The air pressure in the plane can make swelling and bruising worse and we want to make sure you are close to us in case if you require any follow-up after the procedure. Please discuss with Rupesh at your consultation to make sure your lip filler treatment goes as planned.
