How to Achieve The Best Lip Injection Results

Whether you’ve always had naturally thin lips, or your lips have lost volume due to aging, a Juvederm® lip injection can create an instantly more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Here are the top dos and don’ts when it comes to a lip injection treatment.

Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, are made from a naturally derived material called hyaluronic acid, which can be directly injected into the skin with the goal of adding volume to the area. Lip injections, administered by a trained esthetician can therefore be placed in strategic areas of the mouth to add shape, balance, and volume to this facial feature.

At Glenmore Landing Vein Clinic, we use a range of Juvederm® products to suit your specific lip enhancement needs and treat the following areas:

  • Cupid’s bow
  • Marionette lines
  • Perioral lines
  • Vermillion border
  • The fleshy part of the upper and lower lip

Top Dos and Don’ts of a Lip Injection Treatment

When injected by a trained Juvederm® expert, cosmetic lip injections are a safe and easy way to get the beautiful pout you’ve always wanted. However, as with all cosmetic treatments, there are certain steps you can take to ensure the best results and minimize any side-effects.

If you are considering a Juvederm® lip injection treatment, here are the top Do’s and Don’ts to follow:

Dos of a Juvederm® Lip Injection Treatment

  • Let the practitioner know if you suffer from cold sores during your consultation.
  • Drink plenty of water before and after your treatment. A high level of water intake will increase your body’s ability to heal.
  • Take into consideration the recovery time for the swelling/bruising to subside. This could take up to one week and it’s very normal. If you have a big event coming up, get your lip injection at least two weeks before.
  • Bring a picture or an example of what you’re hoping to achieve to your consultation. This will help your Juvederm® practitioner know exactly what you desire.
  • Be realistic about the outcome. For drastic changes, you will need more than one treatment. Big transformations require multiple sessions, spaced out over a period of time.
  • Prepare for a little discomfort. Lips are a very sensitive area and although Juvederm® has numbing properties, you are likely to feel slight pain during the treatment.
  • Use ice following your treatment. Applying a cold compress to your lips will help with the bruising and apply ice later on in the day will help with the swelling.
  • Be patient. It takes approximately 14 days to get a good idea of what your results look like. By this time, any bruising or swelling will have settled down.

Don’ts of a Juvederm® Lip Injection Treatment

  • Use any anti-inflammatory medications such as Advil or Ibuprofen prior to treatment. This can cause your blood to thin, increasing the risk of bruising and bleeding.
  • Massage your lips after the procedure because this could affect the amount of volume achieved and also move the filler, causing undesirable results. If you experience lumpiness, then talk to your practitioner immediately.
  • Expect your lip fillers to be permanent. Typically, lip enhancements require top ups between 6-12 months.
  • Sleep flat. Elevating your head while you sleep for a couple of days after the treatment will keep the swelling down.
  • Exercise for at least 24 hours following the treatment. This is because increased blood flow to the treatment area can increase inflammation.
