The Lip Filler Experience: What to Expect and How to Prepare
Enhancing your lips can boost your confidence and enhance your natural beauty. That’s why we offer lip filler treatments, including our newest addition, dental block which typically makes the procedure pain free. Here’s what you can expect from your lip filler treatment at skinBe Med Spa and how to prepare for it.
What Is Lip Filler?
Lip fillers are injectable treatments that use hyaluronic acid to add volume and shape to your lips. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in our bodies that helps maintain moisture and elasticity in our skin. Lip fillers enhance the size, shape, and structure of your lips, creating a more youthful appearance.
Preparing for Lip Filler
Before your lip filler appointment, there are a few things you can do to prepare for the procedure:
- Avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements at least a week before your appointment. These can increase your risk of bleeding and bruising.
- Stay hydrated and avoid alcohol and caffeine, which can dehydrate you.
- Talk to our providers about any allergies or medical conditions you have. They will do a complimentary assessment to determine if lip fillers are safe for you.
- Come to your appointment without any makeup on your lips, so the provider who will be attending to you can see your natural lip shape and features.
The Procedure: What to Expect
At SkinBe Med Spa, we use dental block to make your lip filler experience pain free. Dental block is a numbing injection that blocks the nerves in your lips, so you don’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. Here’s what you can expect during your lip filler appointment:
Consultation: One of our certified providers will discuss your treatment goals and determine the best type and amount of filler for you.
Numbing: The provider will apply numbing cream to make the injection more bearable.
Dental Block: At an additional fee the provider will inject dental block into your gums and lips. You may feel some pressure and discomfort during this step, but it should only last a few seconds.
Filler Injection:Once your lips are numb, the provider will use a small needle or cannula to inject the filler into your lips. They will mold and shape the product as they go to ensure natural, symmetrical results.
Aftercare: Your skinBe provider will give you aftercare instructions to minimize swelling and bruising. You should avoid strenuous exercise and sun exposure for at least 24 hours after your appointment.
You should see the results of your lip filler treatment immediately after your appointment, but there may be some swelling and bruising for the first few days.Dental block makes the procedure virtually pain-free and helps you enjoy your new look without discomfort.
