Do lip fillers hurt?
Having a lip injection can be a slightly uncomfortable experience, but is usually not very painful. An anesthetic ingredient is common in some fillers, and in some occasions, our consultants may use a local topical anesthetic to ease any pain. For a day or 2 after the procedure, some redness or swelling may be noted.
How long will it last?
This can be dependent on a variety of factors such as the type of filler being used. The common Hyaluronic acid fillers can last for a duration of up to a year but vary a lot per person. Genetics can also be an effecting factor along with skin type, muscle type, lifestyle age, activity and administration technique used. The professional advice of your plastic surgeon is very important to get the maximum effects of the treatment.
It is highly recommended if you want to avoid bruising, you avoid these listed medications 2 weeks prior to your lip injection: non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as Difene, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, and Ponstan. Also, it is advised not to use Aspirin 2 weeks before. Another tip is to avoid herbal remedies, Vitamin E, and Omega 3 /Omega 6.
Another option to achieve an effective non-surgical anti-aging treatment is to try our exclusive SoftLift technique. This is a proven combination of treatments and uses a combination of fillers with very good results.
