Before My Appointment

  • No caffeine 24 hours prior

  • No alcohol 48 hours prior

  • No exercising the day of the procedure as it will open your pores.

  • No waxing at least 3 days before your procedure.

  • No sun exposure for at least 2 weeks before and after your procedure.

  • No lip injections for 4 weeks before and after your procedure.

  • No Advil or other blood thinners such as Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen 48-72 hours prior to your appointment. If you have a low pain tolerance, you may take extra strength Tylenol before your procedure.

  • Avoid having the procedure done during your menstrual cycle. It will cause more bleeding and it might affect the healed result.

    If you have ever had a cold sore, you have to consult with your doctor to prescribe antiviral medication (valtrex, acyclovir, etc.) otherwise there is a possibility that you will lose color in the cold sores areas.

  • Moisturize your lips 3-5 days before your appointment to avoid them drying out during the procedure.
