Lip Enhancement treatment with hyaluronic acid is a non-surgical treatment to boost the shape, volume and hydration of lips. The lips are particularly vulnerable as they have a thin outer layer, which becomes progressively thinner as the body ages. Natural substances that contribute to beautiful skin such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid decrease in our bodies as we age.
What do I need to avoid before the treatments?
Prior to lip enhancement treatment you should avoid aspirin and anti-inflammatory medication, e.g. Ibuprofen for one week. If you suffer from cold sores it is advisable to take antiviral Acyclovir tablets for a few days before and after the procedure. Please do not have any Dental treatment for 2 weeks before and after the treatment.
What should I avoid after treatment?
You may be advised not to wear makeup for up to 12 hours. You may also be told to avoid the sun, as well as saunas and steam rooms, for 2 weeks. Some people experience a little temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites. It is also recommended that you avoid additional treatments in the treated area for the next 7 days.
