We understand that after filler appointments most clients can experience a rush of emotions. By the time you get home after your appointment and even later on that evening you are you may have noticed some bruising and swelling already. This is to be expected. If you develop intense pain or uneven swelling please call the office so that we can address this concern immediately. You should have mild tenderness but there should not be any intense pain. There is no question too big or small, we are happy to keep you informed and educated on the process of the treatment.
If perhaps you found yourself with a bit of a bruise, we recommend the use of Arnica gel and tablets. Each product formulation is different therefore, we would advise that you follow the specific directions on the back of the branded bottle you purchase. These can be found at the whole foods store right in Hampton or at most pharmacies and or grocery stores.
Be sure to avoid having any dental work done until two weeks post-procedure.
No makeup or lip glass until you are healed
Keep your lips hydrated with a clean balm
Use the speaker on your phone instead of pressing it to your face
Do NOT go in a hot tub, pool, lake, or ocean until you are completely healed. Showering is fine.
Do not touch or manipulate the area
If you had your lips done, they will feel big and at times uneven. This will all settle out. We tell our clients “don’t love them or hate them for two weeks”. You will be apprehensive of the swelling at first and then once the swelling goes away you will wish they were swollen again.
Immediately report any abnormal swelling and or intense pain, discoloration or lacey bruise like pattern (we will call this mottling). If it feels “off”, “different”, or “strange” please call us during business hours.
