LIP BLUSH AFTER CARE
The number one rule with lips is to be gentle and trust the process.
Avoid spicy, acidic & salty foods and citric fruits.
Use a straw when drinking
Use mild mouthwashes
First day, wash your face 2-3 hours after the procedure. Apply ice if needed for swelling
Paper towel or tissue blot the area when drying. Please do not use a towel or harsh surface when drying them after a wash
Avoid lipstick and glosses (only healing ointment), for at least 7-10 days.
Ibruprofen can be used for swelling. No aspirin
Always apply ointments with a Q-tip and not your fingers.
Do not let the shower water run down or aim directly at your face. Always wash in sink or shower in a SPLASH ON motion.
Do not brush your teeth with toothpaste or mouthwash for the first 48 hours.
A & D & grapeseed oil are the only aftercare ointments to be used. Alternative between the two. You can even put the grapeseed oil on first and coat the A & D ointment on after. This process begins the second day. Keep them as moisturized as possible for a least the first 2 weeks.
Shedding will start as soon as the 3rd day, MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT PICK THE SCABS OR PEEL. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AS YOU WILL LEAVE AN OPEN WOUND SUSCEPTIBLE FOR INFECTION.
L-lysine should be taken the day before and for the next 6 days following the procedure.
Start with Abreva Topical ointments and if it persists then seek medical treatment which usually will result in a prescription for Valtrex.
Avoid the sun for 10 days
Contact me immediately if you suspect infection or if anything unusual happens that we did not discuss. Lips have more bacteria than the bottom of your feet so it is more prone to infection but we will monitor every step of the way to prevent this from happening.
