How to Kiss Your Valentine Like you Really mean it

Dermal fillers l Falls Church, VAValentine’s day is just around the corner and if there’s one thing to know about this holiday it’s that just about everyone deserves a little bit of love. If you have a special someone that you are going out with on Valentines’ day, consider giving them a kiss that they won’t soon forget with fuller lips.

How Can I Get Fuller Lips?

The fun thing about dermal fillers is that they aren’t just used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face, but they’re also used to add volume to lips. Depending on the goal that you want for you lips, our doctor will determine what filler will give you the best results. For instance, some of our patients want more volume, whereas some patients just want to get rid of fine lines that they have developed on their lips. During your consultation, you and our doctor will go over your concerns and the results that you want to help you land on a filler that is just right for you.

How To Recover After

The best way for you to really give your valentine’s date the perfect kiss is to make sure that your lips have healed after injections. On average, patients experience swelling that lasts a couple of days and some slight bruising. To help ease the swelling, we recommend soft ice packs or frozen water bottles that you can use to apply a light amount of pressure to the lips. Additionally, we may recommend ibuprofen a few days after injections but not on the day of because it may increase bruising. Make sure to give yourself a few days of recovery time before you plant a big kiss on your Valentine.

If you want to make this Valentine’s day one that both you and your significant other will remember, then consider getting lip injections from our office.
