What to Expect After Lip Fillers

If you love that keyhole pout or Cupid’s Bow many celebrities are sporting, you may want to look into lip fillers. Stars like Taylor Swift and Kylie Jenner get a lot of attention for their sensual looks. Lip fillers are trending in the Chicago area, mostly because of the quick treatment, easy recovery, and stunning results. More and more patients are seeking this treatment to prepare for big events or just to look fantastic entering a room. We created this guide so you know what to expect after the procedure.

Minimal Downtime

Come into our office, then get back to your life. Our lip augmentation treatments offer no downtime with few restrictions once you leave the office. Pop in, pop out, and look stunning as a result. In 30 minutes, you can create your perfect pout. We do suggest:

  • Minimize your workouts for one or two days—For the first couple of days after treatment, we ask you to avoid strenuous activity to decrease swelling and bruising.
  • Resume regular activities—Other than working out, you’re free to get back to your life after treatment. You may have a bit of swelling, so if that bothers you, schedule a Friday appointment so you’ll have the weekend to allow the swelling to dissipate.
  • Hands off—We ask to not touch your lips while you heal. We know that it’s tempting, but hold off because rubbing can shift the filler inside.

Lip augmentation injections will have you looking and feeling beautiful in no time. Your confidence will soar with your new look.

Minimal Discomfort

You don’t have to be bothered by pain after lip fillers. Most women experience a minimal amount of discomfort, if any at all. The fillers often contain lidocaine (an anesthetic), which reduces soreness during and after the injections.

Results that Last

Our filler injections provide fantastic results that last for several months. We’ll can set up another treatment in the future so you will always look your best. Expect a sexy smile for four to six months before another session.

Timing Is Essential

If you’re having the treatment for a future event like a wedding, vacation, or reunion, you’ll want to time it right. You need to give the fillers time to settle and deliver that fabulous look. Results may not be realized for a while, so schedule your appointment soon to learn when it’s best to have the injections done.
