Who is a good candidate for Lip PRP?
PRP candidates are those looking c alternative to dermal fillers, or those looking to reverse the effects of aging on the lips.
PRP as a lip filler is a long-term treatment for deflated lips, or those experiencing a wrinkling in the lips.
Prepare yourself for PRP treatment
Avoid blood-thinning medications and herbs which may increase bleeding, and may cause bruising for at least two weeks prior to your PRP lip treatment:
Any NSAIDs (such as Ibuprofen, Aleve®, Motrin®, Advil®, or Aspirin®)
Fish Oil, and St. John’s Wort, high doses of Vitamin E, and Alcohol
Redness and a mild inflammation may be present for 24-28 hours. The maximum result will be apparent in about 3 months. As with most cosmetic treatments, we recommend that you not exercise directly following treatment as it will raise blood pressure and may disrupt with the product settling properly.
Avoid alcohol, any non-prescribed blood thinners medication, and supplements for one week after treatment.
Fractional laser for lip rejuvenation.
Fractional laser resurfacing can help treat lip lines well. Treatment with fractional non-ablative lasers brings about modest improvement in deeper lines but more obvious improvement with very superficial lines.
These procedures are carried out under topical anesthesia and have several days to a week of recovery time.
