Tips for Extending the Life of Your Lip Fillers

In recent years, lip fillers have become a popular treatment to enhance the lips. It allows people to achieve full, plump, and more defined lips. Since lip fillers are an investment, you’ll want to maintain your results for as long as possible. Firstly, avoid the sun since sun exposure can break down your lip fillers. Make sure to always wear sunscreen and seek shade. Secondly, you should always listen to your aesthetic practitioner who will provide you aftercare instructions, usually avoiding certain activities for a few days like rigorous exercise or excessive heat exposure. Thirdly, this may be common sense but it’s best recommended to minimize your stress. High stress levels can contribute to lip biting which can break down the lip filler quicker than it would otherwise. When it comes to working out after getting lip filler, its best to take it slow at first until your lips have healed. Activities that consist of intense workouts are not the best for lip fillers. Activities that involve a lot of facial movement should be avoided. Furthermore, make sure to ask about the different types of fillers and the longevity of each one. Different fillers will provide more long-lasting effects than others. Lastly, its recommended to schedule top-up appointments to maintain your look.
