How to Care for Your Lips After Lip Fillers


lips fillersHere at Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office, we know the importance of injecting your lips with highly trusted, lip fillers. That’s why we only use Juvederm and Restylane to give all of our patients a sexy and plump pout. If you are considering getting lip fillers or if you have recently done so, it’s important to know how to properly care for them afterwards. From icing them to giving them a slight massage, this article will discuss the best ways to care for your lips after receiving lip fillers.

Elevated Sleep

After you receive your lip injections you might experience some sort of swelling around your lips and mouth. To help alleviate this swelling and to make sure that it doesn’t get worse, it is advised that you sleep with your head propped up with at least two or three pillows during the night— this will help to support your head and will encourage the swelling in your lips to subside.

Ice Them

Icing your lips after you receive injections will not only help to reduce any inflammation that you might be experiencing but it will also help to reduce any pain that you may also be experiencing. Simply get a soft gel ice pack and place it on top of your lips for about 15-20 minutes at a time. Although it might feel a bit uncomfortable at first, the discomfort will soon subside.

Gentle Massage

Before you start to massage your lips, make sure to check with Dr. Larry Weinstein regarding whether or not he thinks it will be beneficial to your results. If given the “okay”, start to gentle massage your lips within the first 48 hours of receiving injections. Simply take your forefinger and thumb and slowly work around your lips in order to get out any bumpy areas where the filler may be more inclined to store itself. If you experience any sort of pain while massaging your lips, stop immediately; you don’t want to exacerbate the problem.

Getting lip injections is a safe and easy way to get that sexy pout that you’ve always wanted. And although there really isn’t any downtime required, by using the above tips you can help to ensure that your lips look and feel as smooth as possible.
