So, what is the ideal amount of time before your big event to schedule your filler procedure? We suggest that you schedule the procedure at least two weeks before your special day for facial injections and three weeks before for lip injections. During this time, you will recover from any visible bruising or swelling.
You should give yourself at least two to three weeks before the wedding when scheduling fillers to allow enough time for potential side effects to resolve. The best time to get fillers done before a wedding is between three months and two weeks before instead of waiting until the last minute.
The day after your injections, you will most likely wake up with the most extreme swelling that you will experience with them. The upper lip area may seem to be projecting over the lower lip and appear to be significantly bigger.
However, most patients see the best results within four to seven days. Therefore, Dr. Preminger advises receiving your injections at least one week before your special event. This should also be sufficient time for potential swelling or bruising to subside.
Dermal fillers are instant, so you can see a visible result immediately after injection. It takes up to 4 weeks for the filler to fully integrate into the tissue and some fillers are more cohesive than others.
Tipping standards in the cosmetic and beauty industry are subjective. A general tipping etiquette is anywhere from 10% to 20%, but this standard is by no means universal.
You should NEVER leave a tip for your PA/NP or nurse injector. Injectables are medications, just like a blood pressure pill or a thyroid medication.
Patients tend to report that lip swelling is the worst the first day after their injection, particularly in the morning. Swelling should go down within 2–3 days after your lip filler treatment, and should subside completely within 2 weeks post-treatment.
You are not allowed to smile for a few days after a lip filler. Facial expressions such as smiling, laughing, or frowning should have zero impact on your lip filler. It is actually better for you to smile and gently massage your lips, to help spread the product and produce a more natural end-result.
Is 1ml Of Dermal Lip Filler A Lot? 1ml of dermal filler falls within the average amount. It still creates a natural increase. Everything over 1ml creates a more dramatic look, and this is something that should be taken into consideration by patients.
Avoid tweezing, bleaching, waxing, and even hair removal cream around the lips. Day before: 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.
Can you Kiss After Lip Filler? Kissing can apply a lot of pressure to the lips and increase risk of infection (there is a lot of bacteria in the mouth!), so it is best to avoid kissing for 48–72 hours after getting lip filler treatment.
The hyaluronic acid fillers last from 3-6 months or even more. Since it all depends on the area of injection, volume of filler, thickness of your skin, and other factors that are unknown to me. The great news is that you can kiss right after lip augmentation, but it should be avoided for no longer than 2 hours.
For someone desiring a more defined border or slight plump, 1 syringe is usually enough. For those desiring voluminous lips often depicted on Instagram, more than one syringe will be needed. How many depends on the size of your lips to begin with and your desired outcome.
Pre-Treatment Care Is Important
A couple of days before getting lip filler injections, you shouldn't take aspirin, ibuprofen, Vitamin E, or fish oil supplements. Basically, all of these medications thin your blood. This can result in excessive bleeding during the procedure, so you should really try to avoid that.
Pain, redness or itchiness at the injection site is also normal, and should be mild. If you experience severe pain, redness or itching, or pain outside of the lip area, see your doctor. Overfilling is a concern for some patients, especially in the first week after treatment when lips are still swollen.
Generally speaking, however, a half syringe of lip filler will give you a subtle result, which is great if you want your lips to be more natural-looking, to correct minor asymmetry or to add hydration. A full syringe will provide a more full and noticeable result, but won't leave you with overfilled lips.
There is no medical reason why you cannot apply makeup including lip gloss or lipstick directly after lip fillers. A treatment can leave the lips feeling slightly tender, so it is recommended that you leave it a day before applying makeup to the treatment area.
You can expect some swelling in your lips after the procedure. You may also notice some small red spots where the needles were injected into your lips. Bruising around the lips is another common side effect, which may last about a week.
Fillers come in pre-filled syringes, usually with 1 mL per syringe. To avoid duck lips, stick to one syringe per treatment. Honestly, some times we won't even use the whole syringe to avoid the risk of duck lips.
Pillow face is a condition that occurs as a result of a person getting over-injected with dermal fillers in their face. This leads to an overstuffed look, which causes the checks and other areas of the face to puff out.
When the upper lip is equal to or begins to exceed the volume of the lower, the augmentation starts to look fake. Once that ratio is breached, the result degrades rapidly, even with minor volume additions.
