What to Expect Before and After Lip Injections at ACPS MedSpa

What to Expect Before and After Lip Injections at ACPS MedSpa | Houston

Lip injections are a popular cosmetic treatment for those seeking fuller and/ or more defined lips. At ACPS MedSpa in Houston, we specialize in providing natural-looking results that enhance your facial aesthetics while preserving the unique aspects of your appearance. Here’s a guide to what you can expect before and after undergoing lip injections at our facility.

Before Your Lip Injection Procedure

Your journey to fuller lips starts with a personalized consultation at ACPS MedSpa. During this session, one of our skilled practitioners will discuss your aesthetic goals and examine your lips to determine the best approach for achieving natural-looking results. We consider your facial structure and desired outcome to recommend the most suitable type of filler and the appropriate volume.

Choosing the Right Filler 

We use only the highest quality hyaluronic acid fillers, such as RHA and Restylane, which are renowned for their effectiveness. These fillers not only provide volume but also attract moisture to the lips, giving them a soft, natural feel.


To minimize discomfort and swelling, we advise avoiding certain medications and supplements that can increase bruising, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, alcohol, and fish oil, for a week before the procedure. In addition, you can take arnica at least 5 days before the treatment date to help reduce the potential bruising and swelling. We also recommend you stay hydrated and arrive at the clinic with clean skin free of any lip products. 

During the Procedure

Lip injections at ACPS MedSpa are quick and relatively painless. The treatment typically takes about 45 minutes- 1hr including numbing (optional) which we apply topically to ease any discomfort. The fillers themselves also contain lidocaine to further reduce pain during the injection process. Our experts use precise techniques to ensure even distribution and natural-looking volume.

After Your Lip Injection Procedure

Immediate Aftercare After the injections, you might notice some swelling and bruising, which is normal and will subside within a few days, you can continue to take arnica to further help decrease bruising and swelling along with Ice packs and avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours.

You will see immediate results after the swelling goes down, with full effects visible within a week. The results typically last between six to twelve months, after which you can opt for a quick touch-up session, if needed, to maintain your enhanced look.

Long-Term Care To prolong the effects of your lip injections, keep your lips moisturized and use a lip balm with SPF to protect against sun damage. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and staying hydrated will also help preserve the filler and keep your lips looking plump.
