Lip Injections Toronto

Recovery & Results

Unlike many non-surgical treatments, the effects of your lip enhancement treatment will be immediately visible; you'll see fine lines start to fade and instantly fuller lips. However, it will take a few days for the dermal filler to "settle in" post procedure.

During this time, you may also feel firmness at the injection site. As your body adjusts to your lip fillers, any hard sensations will soften, leaving your lips with a naturally plumper look. Expect to wait up to 14 days to see the final results of your lip injections.

There is very little recovery time required for lip filler treatments. Most patients return to their day-to-day activities immediately — with some even coming in for their lip injections on their lunch break!

However, you may want to consider booking your treatment on a Friday afternoon so you can recover over the weekend. Though the downtime isn't significant, you might see minor swelling around bruising around the injection sites after your lip injection procedure. This is completely normal; both can last up to a week after treatment.

There are a few steps you can take both before and after receiving your lip injections to help alleviate these side effects. Ahead of your treatment, talk to your general practitioner about how any prescription blood thinners you may be taking could affect your healing process, and avoid any over-the-counter medications like aspirin and fish oils that can thin the blood. You should also skip out on happy hour or drinking any other alcohol in the 24 hours before your treatment as alcohol also can cause a similar effect that could result in bruising.

After your treatment, avoid lying down or performing strenuous exercise, both of which can exacerbate swelling and bruising. Using ice packs or cold compresses will help soothe the area. Be sure not to rub or massage your lips, which could displace the filler, and do not apply makeup, which could cause infection. Avoid facials or saunas, this will help minimize the risk of raising your blood pressure and therefore minimize the risk of temporary bruising. You should also consider sleeping elevated the evening after being treated with lip injections; this will facilitate drainage and reduce swelling in your lips.

Each patient's experience with this non-surgical lip enhancement procedure is unique; how quickly your body metabolizes the filler in your lips will differ, depending on your genetics, the amount of product used, and which dermal filler was injected into your lips. On average, however, the results of lip filler injections last from six months to one year, after which you'll have to add volume again with another treatment to restore your pouty lips.
