The day of your procedure, your lips will appear slightly swollen, more sharply defined and a lot darker.
Your color will fade 30-50% once it’s healed in 6 to 8 weeks.
Do not get your lips wet for too long. Apply the ointment you will be given the day of your appointment for at least 5 days after your procedure or until all the scabs fall off. If you run out of your given ointment, you may apply Aquaphor healing ointment instead.
Avoid exercising/sweating for at least 5 days after your procedure.
After a couple days, your lips will start scabbing. You will not have heavy scabbing if you follow all the after-care instructions listed here.
You must let all the scabs flake off naturally little by little. This process can take up to 7 days.
