Home Care After Juvederm Lip Injections

There will be some swelling associated with lip injections but this is completely normal and no cause for concern. When you return home after your injections, remember to take it easy and follow the instructions you were given by your injector.

Here’s how to give yourself the best home care after getting Juvederm lip injections:

  • Ice the area five times a day, 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off for the first few days after your injections. This will help with the swelling and relieve any discomfort.
  • Stay away from alcohol for 24 hours after your lip injections. Alcohol can cause your blood vessels to dilate and create bruising around your mouth.
  • Don’t wear lipstick right after your procedure. Wait until the swelling has gone down. If you must wear something, your dermatologist will recommend a lip product that is gentle and contains SPF. You can, however, wear makeup on the rest of your face.
  • You may be tempted to drink through a straw after undergoing Juvederm lip injections but it’s best not to. Avoid straws because your lips will be swollen and the suction needed to use a straw may prove to be awkward. Once the swelling has subsided, you can use all the straws you want.
  • Stay out of saunas and hot showers for the first 24 hours after your lip injections so that your blood vessels don’t dilate. If you do take a shower immediately following your procedure, make sure the water is lukewarm.
  • Avoid exercising or other strenuous activities for a full day after your injections. Sweating can raise your blood pressure and prolong the swelling of your lips.
  • Some people experience bruising or pain around the injection site. This will subside in a few days. You can take Tylenol deal with any discomfort.
