Getting the perfect pout doesn’t have to be daunting. With the right injector, you can get more plump and luscious lips while still looking natural! Below you’ll find a few do’s and don’ts, as well as some popular FAQs about getting the lips you’ve always wanted via hyaluronic acid fillers. Let’s dive in!

At Toronto’s Elements Spa, we specialize in offering all of our clients a tailored experience that best pairs with their desired look and existing lips. Clients are advised to consider their hydration levels before and after getting fillers in order to help improve the body’s natural ability to heal and regenerate. This will also help with any swelling that can occur which is normal and to be expected. Clients can also take an arnica homeopathic remedy prior, as well as a few days after the session. Arnica is a natural homeopathic supplement that helps the body heal, especially in relation to swelling, bruising, and any minor injuries.

Preparing For Your Filler Appointment

We advise that clients refrain from any blood thinners up to a week before their session. That would include some pain medications including Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and Advil. Clients should also resist the temptation to touch or rub their lips after their session as that can move the fresh filler around and cause irregularities and assymetry. A strenuous workout should also be avoided for at least 1-2 days after your session. This will ensure the lips don’t receive an increase in blood flow and also allow the body to naturally decrease any inflammation in the area.

How Long Do Fillers Last?

Lip fillers can last up to approximately 12 months depending on the client. We all metabolize things in our body differently and uniquely so comparing how long a specific hyaluronic acid filler will last in one client versus another is not ideal or accurate. Fillers can also be used for areas around the mouth including fine lines around the lips that may have been caused by a history of smoking.
