Lip Enhancement

Soft, natural Lip Enhancements preformed by a Registered Nurse

If you feel that your lips are lacking in proportion, definition, or are thinning with age, Belotero® Lips could be established as the ideal treatment option for you.

As a highly-tailored treatment option, Belotero® Lips combines two targeted injectables, ‘Shape’ and ‘Contour’, for versatility beyond the offerings of traditional dermal filler products.

‘Shape’ gently augments the lips for balanced and even voluminisation, enhancing the structure of the upper and lower lips for a full, soft result. As a finishing touch, ‘Contour’ is used to subtly enhance the outline of the lips, for a well-defined, more sculpted and youthful appearance.

The Belotero® Lips treatment package is formulated for smooth integration with your existing lip tissue, for a safe and comfortable experience that enables you to enjoy maximum personalisation, with natural, lasting results that are unique to you.

HOW TO REDUCE SWELLING AFTER LIP INJECTIONS AND FILLERS

Post Treatment

In order to reduce the amount of bruising and swelling at the injection site, we advise the following recommendations about how to prepare for fillers:

One Week Prior to Injections

  • Avoid blood thinning over-the-counter medications such as aspirin and  ibuprofen

  • Avoid supplements, including St. John’s Wort, Gingko biloba, primrose oil, garlic, ginseng, and Vitamin E.

2 Days Prior to Injections

  • Avoid topical products such as Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinol, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, or any “anti-aging” products.

  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or using hair removal cream on the area to be treated.

  • Do start taking Arnica two days prior to the procedure. (This is not required, but it will help to lessen bruising.)

24 Hours Prior to Injections

  • Do not drink alcoholic beverages 24 hours prior.

General Recommendations

  • If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores. Please let us know if you are prone. Take your anti cold-sore medication post treatment as a precaution.

  • Do not use dermal fillers if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to any ingredients, or suffer from neurological disorders. Please inform us if you have any questions about this prior to your treatment. 

 

THE DAY OF TREATMENT

  • Arrive at the office with a “clean face”—washed and without makeup.

  • In order to maximize your comfort during the procedure, a topical anesthetic may be applied. In some cases, a local numbing medication will be injected into or around the area(s) to be treated.

WHAT TO DO AFTER FILLERS: THE FIRST HOUR

  • Apply an ice pack and Arnica topically

  • Avoid lipsticks. If you must apply a new, clean lip balm. 

AFTER FILLERS: 6 TO 10 HOURS POST-TREATMENT

  • Avoid drinking alcohol or partaking in strenuous exercise, as it may result in additional bruising.

  • Until the swelling and redness have resolved, avoid intense heat in the treated area(s). This includes sunbathing, tanning, saunas, hot tubs, or hot wax.

  • To help alleviate bruising, we recommend taking Arnica or Bromelain, eating fresh pineapple, and applying ice to the area.

  • To help alleviate swelling, we recommend an antihistamine during the day, such as Zyrtec or Claritin, and Benadryl at night.

  • If there is a visible bump, you can massage the area. Depending on the areas treated and the product used, you may feel “firmness.” These areas will soften and settle with time (usually 1-2 weeks).

  • Sunscreen and makeup can be applied, and you may use a gentle cleanser on the area.

  • Have fever and/or chills

  • Have discolored blotches in areas not injected
