4 Things You Should Avoid After Lip Beautification

There are various lip fillers and lip reduction (ทำปากบาง, which is the term in Thai) technologies in the market, and you can choose from there depending upon the result and your lifestyle. The result may also vary depending on different anatomy. Still, you should avoid the four things below to get the desired result. Here these are given below.

Avoid Room With High Temperature

It would help if you avoided rooms with high temperatures, such as saunas, hot showers, etc,  after lip reduction as the high heat can make the blood vessels to be dilated, which increases the suffering of swelling after lip filler injection. Follow the guidelines for at least 24-48 hours. In case you need to bathe after the surgery, then use lukewarm water rather than a hot bath. Applying ice over your lip can ease swelling.

Avoid Alcohol

You should not drink alcohol for at least 24-48 hours. Alcohol is a blood thinner that can cause bruising in the lip. Apart from alcohol, stop taking ibuprofen, paracetamol, aspirin, garlic, caffeine etc, after the lip injection. In that case, you can drink plain water to stay hydrated and get the best result after lip filler injection.


After you take a lip filler injection, avoid any strenuous exercise for at least 24-48 hours. As too much exercise can elevate your blood pressure as well as heart rate resulting in bruising and swelling in the lip. Rather than strenuous exercise, you should stick to light activities that don’t leave much pressure on your body.

Give Time For Healing

If you are preparing yourself for any upcoming occasion, then make sure to give healing time for your lips. Allowing your lips to be healed for plenty of time, you can get better results. Otherwise, applying heavy makeup and moving it a lot can worsen the outcome. So, please go for the injection ten days before the party or occasion you want to join. To get faster results, avoid sleeping on your face. Rather, sleep with an elevated head on the pillow.


The most common side effects after lip reduction include bruising, itching and swelling. So, it would help if you were aware by following the guidelines. Otherwise, you can expect different results rather than looking at your lips plump and full. Generally, the procedure requires little downtime; still, you should contact a board-certified surgeon or dermatologist for a better result.
