What are the immediate aftercare instructions for lip fillers?

Following these immediate aftercare tips will help ensure beautiful results and minimize side effects after your lip filler treatment:

  • Manage Swelling:
    • Apply ice packs or cold compresses wrapped in a cloth for 10-15 minutes at a time to reduce swelling.
    • Elevate your head when resting or sleeping.
  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water to support healing.
  • Gentle Care:
    • Avoid touching, rubbing, or massaging your lips unnecessarily.
    • Cleanse gently with a mild cleanser and pat your lips dry.
  • Avoid for the First 24 Hours:
    • Strenuous exercise
    • Excessive heat (saunas, hot tubs, hot showers)
    • Alcoholic beverages
    • Blood-thinning medications (consult your doctor for guidance)

Expect Minor Side Effects: It’s normal to experience some swelling, tenderness, and possible light bruising in the first few days. These usually subside quickly.
