Lip Aftercare

Day 1 Immediately following the procedure, lips will feel dry, chapped, tight, and tender to the touch. They may appear swollen and bright in color.
For 4 hours after treatment, apply light pressure on the lips with a clean paper towel, to remove any lymph. After 4 hours, start applying ointment (Aquaphor) as needed to keep lips constantly moist
No kissing, rubbing, or friction on the treatment area
Day 1-3 Apply ointment on lips several times a day. Keep lips moist at all times. Avoid oily, spicy, and heavily seasoned food and drink with a straw. After every meal gently rinse and clean lips with water and pat dry, then re-apply ointment.
DAY 4-7 Between these days, lips will begin and end the process of peeling, and color will lighten by 30%-50%.
Do not pick or rub your lips and let the peeling happen naturally. Continue keeping your lips moist!
WEEK 2 Lips are done peeling, color is light. You may return to normal routines. The lips will continue to heal, for up to 6 weeks. Every week more color will surface, it is important to continue keeping lips moist to get the best color at the end of the healing phase.
WEEK 6-8 Your lips are healed and you’re feeling unstoppable!!! Just add some lip gloss and go! In most cases, it requires two treatments to complete the lip transformation.
