If you are just having your lips done for the first time, you may be tempted to use the entire 1ml of filler but we do not advice to do so. A better option is to use small amounts over the course of multiple sessions. This will result in a more gradual lip enhancement that doesn’t require touch-ups as frequently.
It doesn’t take much filler to make your lips plumper. The average treatment will require just 0.5 to 1 ml of filler to achieve the desired effects, any more than that will not create a natural looking lips.
Filler injections over 2ml are mainly for more visible, dramatic effect.
Lip fillers aren’t permanent. They slowly wear away over time, usually 12 to 18 months after you get them, depending on your metabolism. You may need routine touch-up treatments to maintain your desired volume.
Avoid anything that could thin your blood like ibuprophen, aspirin or herbal supplements.
You’ll see immediate results with lip fillers, but once the swelling goes down, the results will not look quite as pronounced. It typically takes about 4 weeks for the filler to settle in and achieve the final, desired look.
Avoid tweezing, bleaching, waxing, and even hair removal cream around the lips.
Don’t drink alcoholic beverages one day prior to lip injections, and avoid any blood thinning over the counter drugs such as Aleve, ibuprofen, aspirin, Motrin, and so on.
Injectable treatments may be ‘non-surgical’, but they involve a medical procedure. Dermal filler injections are not superficial beauty treatments, they are needle injections that penetrate the skin to a depth that increases the risk of complications. Medical professionals are taught how to use needles and cannulas safely, they are also taught about how to deal with problems that may arise from allergic reactions, infection, or an error by the injector.
