How to take care of your lips after a lip filler treatment

After a lip filler treatment, you should take care of your lips to ensure a long-lasting result and prevent any unnecessary swelling or discomfort.

Italian Aesthetic Physician Michela Zazzaron is a frequent speaker at international congresses in aesthetic medicine. She is also a teacher in injection techniques and non-invasive rejuvenation programs. Here is her best advice on how to take care of your lips after a filler treatment.

 

Gentle massage

Give your lips a very gentle massage. Imagine that you are making Italian pasta using a “mattarello”, a rolling pin. Gently press your lips between your thumbs and forefingers and roll your lips between your fingers. Massage your lips 2-3 days after having a lip injection.

Natural herb balm

After the treatment, Michela Zazzaron gives her patients her own personal advice. For example, she recommends applying a topical balm containing arnica to the treated area. Arnica is a natural herb that grows mainly in Europe and Siberia and has traditionally been used to reduce swelling and pain.

 

Ice

Michela’s personal suggestion is also to use an ice pack for a few days after treatment to reduce any swelling or discomfort.

You will normally see the final result of your lip filler treatment after one or two weeks.
