Prepare for the treatment by using a mixture of sugar and coconut oil to exfoliate the lips one week before the session. Do not use vitamin E oil as this will promote bleeding. Drink plenty of water before your treatment for the best results. Hyaluronic acid can hold 1,000 times its weight in moisture. Anti-inflammatory supplements and medications such as aspirin, Vitamin E, ibuprofen and others should be discontinued a week prior to treatment.
How Long Does It Last?
This treatment lasts anywhere from 4-12 weeks without a touch up. The duration of the effect is dependent upon the area treated and if this is an initial treatment. For lip augmentation with the hyaluron lip filler pen, having more than one treatment with a touch up will greatly extend the length of time the results lasts from 6 months to a year. We cannot guarantee a specific length of time for how long the hyaluron lip filler pen effects last due to individual metabolism and lifestyle factors. Remember the more you get the longer it lasts.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
One treatment plus a touch up will be needed to reach the desired volume effect for up to 6 months. Since there is minimal swelling, the results you see will be close to your final result in 3-7 days. It is best to wait 2 weeks before receiving your touch up treatment. The more treatments the longer your results will last.
You may notice some lumps, but these will subside on their own within a week. You can lightly massage the area to help the serum spread and even out. Do not exercise for 24 hours following treatment or engage in any swimming or sauna activities. Be sure to drink plenty of water to help improve the hyaluronic acid’s ability to volumize your treated area since it is a hydrophilic molecule that attracts moisture. Use petroleum jelly to keep the lips moisturized following treatment and wear an SPF lip balm if you will be outdoors. If you experience bruising, arnica cream can be rubbed on the area.
How Does the Hyaluron Lip Filler Pen Work?
The hyaluron lip filler pen uses technology borrowed from the field of medicine to help you achieve a more youthful volume on the lips and other areas of the face. Using intense pressure, the pen device injects microparticles of hyaluronic acid deep into the skin without the use of a needle.
