Your full healing time is 14 days! Your lips will swell and can feel tender in the first 5 -7 days. Do not worry about feeling your lips are too big, swelling can be excessive, they will go down.

Sleeping on an elevated pillow can help will the swell as they swell most in the morning.

Expect to bruise, on the lip and possibly around the lip, these will fade in approximately 3 to 7 days.

Its very important to DRINK WATER, lots of it for the first 5 days, the filler needs water/hydration to soften, this is essential.

Bumps and unevenness in the first week is normal, leaving them to settle in and heal themselves.

No sun beds for at least 5 days and it is essential to use a high SPF on your lips if in the sun or on sun beds.

If you have been ill recently or/and received vaccines, this can contribute to excessive swelling of the lips in the hours after treatment. If your swelling is more than usual or feels uncomfortable, taking an antihistamine can help relieve, please contact the clinic for our advice.

If you suffer from cold sores, it is advisable to take Lysine supplements for 21 days post treatment (available in Pharmacies and Health Shops). Lip Injections can evoke and activate the herpes simplex virus (coldsores), taking Lysine supplements can help prevent this or lessen the symptoms if they do present post treatment.

After 5 days , you can then press any firm areas or bumps to help them soften. To do this, pinch your lip between your thumb and index finger, press very firmly for 3 seconds and release. Repeat this all over the lips for 2 minutes, do not pull your lips repeatedly outwards, this can cause migration, press firmly in the one place at a time, not in different directions.

You have had multiple injections so please, treat this like a wound by making sure to keep your lip area very clean, i.e Do not use unopened / old balms or lipsticks, drink from clean glasses / bottles on the day. Any balm you use must be sterile / brand new.

If you experience any prolonged pain, throbbing or discolouration other than general bruising, please contact the clinic so we can discuss symptoms and give our professional opinion and treat appropriately if necessary.

Jawline filler takes approx 21 days to settle fully and soften, this is when it will feel like your own skin and tissue to touch.

Do not massage the area, jawline filler will settle in itself.

It is important to drink lots of water and stay hydrated for the first 5 to 7 days, the filler needs a hydrated environment to settle and soften.

Do not chew gum or chew anything overly strenuous (i.e tough steak) for the first 7 days, your filler is under your chewing muscles (masseters) and thus we do not want to over activate them while the filler is settling. Other than this, you can eat and drink as normal.

If you experience any prolonged pain, throbbing or discolouration other than general bruising, please contact the clinic so we can discuss symptoms and give our professional opinion and treat appropriately if necessary.

For the first 24 hours post treatment, do not use saunas, steam rooms, extremely hot showers or do cardio exercise that will induce sweating, we do not want the product to sweat out, which would lessen results.

In the first 5 days after treatment, movement, exercise and walking will help with the excretion of the melted fat, try to get moving as much as possible!
