To achieve your best results, here are a few expert tips for superb lip enhancement in Bellevue:
Do Your Part
While the skill of your injector is critical, YOU also play an important part in achieving optimal results. For starters, you need to avoid blood thinning substances like alcohol and NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen) for at least two weeks prior to your treatment because blood thinners will increase your likelihood of bruising and swelling.
Your injector can’t read your mind. Be as specific as possible about your goals and the look you are hoping for. Bring in pictures, if necessary, to convey your goal. Our expert injectors will work hard to achieve your vision!
Keep your hands off!
In the first 24 to 48 hours following your session, your mouth area may feel and appear extremely swollen. This is normal and will gradually subside in the days following your treatment. Many patients panic because they think their swelling is what their actual results will look like, but this is not the case! It’s important to be prepared for swelling and to apply ice on and off as needed within the first 24 hours of treatment. Icing your treatment area will shrink blood vessels, helping to reduce blood flow and diminish swelling and bruising. Most important, keep your hands off! Avoid massaging your treatment areas, as this can break down your dermal filler prematurely, causing the dermal filler molecules to split into smaller particles, which exacerbates swelling.
