Don’t Take Ibuprofen
Your initial reaction to having swollen lips after you get injections may be to reach for that bottle of Ibuprofen and pop 600 milligrams. However, avoiding anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen and aspirin should be avoided because they cause bruising.
Ice After Lip Injections
After you get lip injections, you will likely experience a small amount of bruising and swelling. Since you are discouraged from taking NSAIDs like Ibuprofen, the best thing you can do is ice your lips. When icing your lips make sure to use a soft ice pack or washcloth— if the pack is too hard it’s going to only further damage your lips.
Keep Lips Moisturized
Keep your lips as smooth and moisturized as possible while you are recovering from your lips injected. Dry, cracked, or sunburned lips are only going to make your lips look bad, and your bruising feel worse. When choosing a lip moisturizer, try to choose one that contains ingredients like petroleum jelly which as a barrier between your lips and water.
