The Modern Girls Guide to Surviving Her First Lip Injections

Hey girl, first time getting your lips done?  Don’t you fret, we’ll be here every step of the way to get you on board the luscious lip train that is taking everyone by storm.


Here are some tips and tricks to ensure you get the best results possible out of your first dermal filler experience: 



▪Stop taking any blood thinners 5-7 days prior to your filler appt. IE aspirin, alcohol, fish oil, Ibuprofen *unless prescribed by a physician* This will help minimize your risk of bleeding & bruising. 


▪Don‘t indulge in that glass of Pinot for at least 24 hours after treatment. Alcohol causes inflammation which can make your lips even more swollen and uncomfortable. Instead of having a night out try having a girl’s night in, catch up on your latest reality TV or indulge in some Mani pedis.



▪Start taking arnica pellets 3 times a day for at least 4 days following your treatment to help with any swelling or bruising you may have. 


▪ Got a bruise? Now is the perfect time to start trying that new bold lipstick you’ve been dying to try! You can also swing by your nearest beauty store and they can match you up with a great full coverage concealer to cover up any sign of a bruise. *Pro tip: If your bruise is especially dark, or purple, try a yellow color corrector first and then apply your concealer on top. This will counteract any bruising that still may show through.


▪It is normal for your lips to be swollen or show some bruising the day after treatment DONT panic!! Your new lips will calm down soon enough and you will be in love with your beautiful new pout.
