Most Pharmacies and Health shops will stock Arnica supplements or they can be easily found on Amazon. You are looking to get the Arnica strength 30c, this will say it on the label at the back of the jar.
Arnica gel is soothing & cooling to apply to your new lips the following day after your treatment. It is a clear gel and actually looks super cute as a lip gloss.
TIP **Keep your Arnica gel in the fridge for extra soothing to swollen lips**
On the day of your treatment:
This is easier said than done, but try to RELAX, the more you tense up, the more your underlying tissues tense up, your vessels and capillaries dilate becoming more rigid and also have a much greater chance of being nicked by a passing needle causing bleeding, and in turn bruising.
BREATH, do not hold your breath, we all do it, we automatically and unconsciously hold our breath when we are nervous or feel pain (you’ll notice this next time), this causes the body to tense up…..so BREATH long and deep all throughout your treatment, this will not only lessen the chance of bruising but also ease any pain or pinches. Soft, relaxed, moveable and hydrated lips are the perfect condition for injecting.
