No Needle Lip Filler Preparation & Aftercare

PREPARATION DETAILS

In order to be best prepared for success with Hyaluron Pen, follow the below steps before your appointment.


For 1 week prior avoid blood thinners & dehydrating substances like caffeine, alcohol, St. John’s Wart, Ginko Biloba, primrose oil, fish oil, vitamin E, aspirin, ibuprofen or similar products (Advil, Motrin, Aleve). They can cause bruising, bumps, more aggressive pinpoint marks & lack of volume.


72 hours prior & 72 hours after, avoid highly processed foods as they grately dehydrate the body. Instead, eat spinach, kale and celery the week before to boost your levels of Vitamin K.


Drink 1/2 gallon or more water daily for 48 hours hours before and after treatment. Hyaluronic Acid bonds to other Hyaluronic Acid and water.


24 hours prior and after avoid rigorous workouts and saunas. New fresh fillers need time to set so lots of water and lack of rigorous movement for 24 hours after is key.


Avoid intensive sweating, exposure to extreme temperatures and swimming for 2 -3 days prior to treatment.


AFTERCARE DETAILS

The more you know about the recovery process the easier it is for you to cope with that. The healing process can be divided into 3 stages below. During the 2-4 weeks after the procedure, you will experience all these phases.


Healing of the irritation on the surface layers of the skin and management of potential lumps;

Changes in the shape and thickness of skin;

Achieving of the stable new state.


BE PREPARED FOR SOME SWELLING AND BRUISING. Immediately after the treatment, there may be redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness, and/or itching near the treatment area. Avoid itching, massaging, poking or picking around the spots that mark the insertion of filler. This is completely normal and generally disappears within a few hours to a few days. If these symptoms last more than 3 days, please contact me. You may take acetaminophen (Tylenol or similar) to reduce any pain as necessary. You can add a bit of coconut oil in the following days. Some clients have also found that Arnica - a natural ointment commonly used to reduce bruising, works very well on the treatment area. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat, and consumption of alcoholic beverages. This minimizes the risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. An ice pack can be applied to the site if you experience swelling.


LUMPS AND BUMPS ARE TOTALLY NORMAL WITH HYALURON PEN FILLERS. Initial bumps can be due to injection site injury and swelling (not necessarily the product). Lumps and bumps tend to disappear on their own but can take up to 2 weeks to integrate and spread. After the swelling goes down, if there is still a lump, apply soft pressure onto the lump and hold for up to ten minutes, 2 - 3 times daily. After 2 - 3 days of doing this all lumps should be gone.


DO NOT CONSIDER THE RESULT OF THE INITIAL PROCEDURE TO BE FINAL. Many clients have experienced mild anxiety when they have studied how the shape of lips or facial smile-lines changes during the first couple of weeks after the procedure. This is completely normal and there is no need to worry because of that. In the beginning, the treatment area sometimes looks a bit asymmetric, it will most probably change quite significantly during the first month after the procedure.


I highly recommend a “top off” in two weeks!

AFTERCARE (continue…)

For 1 week prior & 1 week after, avoid tretinoin, retinal, retinoids, glycolic acid, peels, skin sensitizing products.


72 hours prior & 72 hours after, avoid highly processed foods as they grately dehydrate the body. Instead, eat spinach, kale and celery the week before to boost your levels of Vitamin K.


For 1 week after, keep your treated area protected from the sun and use 45+ broad spectrum SPF.


Be gentle to your treatment area for at least 24 hours after the procedure.

  • 24 hours prior and after avoid rigorous workouts. New fresh fillers need time to set so lots of water and lack of rigorous movement for 24 hours after is key.

  • After the swelling goes down, if there is still a lump, apply soft pressure onto the lump and hold for up to ten minutes, 2 - 3 times daily. After 2 - 3 days of doing this all lumps should be gone
