Post Treatment Instruction


  • Avoid touching the treated area for 2-3 hours
  • You can wear make-up and wash your face but be gentle around the areas of treatment
  • No vigorous exercise on the day of treatment
  • No sunbeds for 3 days
  • No facial or chemical peelers or laser resurfacing for the next 14 days
  • Be patient, you will not notice an effect for at least 3 days. The full effect can take up to 2 weeks


If you are not happy with the desired result you can call for a free top up after about 1 week. Top ups normally cannot be given after 4 weeks though we will make a note of this and give you a bigger dose when you need the treatment next time.


  • Immediately after the treatment there will be redness, swelling and tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is normal and generally disappears in 1-2 days.
  • Avoid touching the treated area for 3 hours following treatment, after that light make-up can be applied and the area can be gently washed with soap and water.
  • After the initial swelling and redness has resolved do not expose the treated areas to intense heat, e.g. solarium or sunbathing, or extreme cold.
  • If you are using Aspirin or blood thinning medication be aware that there may be increased bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
  • Treatment will last around 9-12 months but this can vary from person to person.


  • Apply an ice pack to the treated area for the next 24 hours to help reduce initial swelling.
  • Swelling and bruising can last for about 1 week and the lips my look uneven and lumpy during this time, therefore the result directly after the treatment should not be seen as the final result. The final result should be visible after about 2 weeks.
  • If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores there is a risk that today’s treatment could contribute to an eruption of cold sores, in this case use topical creams such as Zovirax.
