Lip Filler


  • To have the best chance of avoiding bruising during the procedure, abstaining from the use of alcohol and anti-inflammatories (like ibuprofen) for 1 week prior to the procedure is best.

    • Supplementing with arnica and/or antihistamines before the procedure can be beneficial for bruising & swelling.​

  • Coming with a clean face is always preferred, but we understand this is not always possible.​

What to Expect:

  • You will be numbed with a topical numbing agent for 30 minutes prior to procedure to ensure you will be comfortable the entire time.

  • Procedure then takes 15-30 mins.

  • Directly after procedure you may have any of the following:

    • Bruising​

    • Swelling (usually mild right after)

    • Redness & irritation due to numbing

  • Swelling usually lasts 24-48 hours, any bruising can be patient dependent.​

  • You should not be in pain after lip filler, only mild tenderness.

  • Results can last 3-9 months.

  • If you received a baby lip, it is common that patients will get a baby lip every 4-12 months, patient dependent.


  • Avoid exercise for 24 hours.

  • Use only the chapstick we give you, or any other lip product that is brand new, nothing that is old & used.

  • Avoid “using them” for 3-4 days (making out, or similar activities 🙂)

  • Avoid straws for 1 week (pro tip: minimize straw use for life)

  • Avoid smoking, smoking will always increase your risk for lip lines and filler migration.

  • Contact your provider if any swelling or bruising is concerning or if you experience any other symptoms or discomfort.

  • Wait at least 2 weeks before getting more lip filler.​
