How to Time Your Lip-Plumping Just Right for V-Day


With the chaos of the holiday season officially over, you might be looking forward to spending a nice romantic evening alone with that special someone for Valentine’s Day. Even though February might seem far away, it’ll be here before you know it.

If you’re thinking about getting lip injections for perfectly puckered lips just in time for some V-Day smooching, it’s a good idea to start planning now and here’s why.

How Does Lip-Plumping Work?

To achieve that full, perfectly shaped look, you can use injectable fillers like JUVÉDERM® XC to plump the appearance of your lips. This product contains hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in your skin. Its primary purpose is to bind water molecules to the skin’s surface. This is what creates the full, plumped appearance that’s so desired.

In most cases, lip injections take about 15 minutes to complete and you can expect to return to your normal daily activities directly afterwards.

Although results are immediate, common side effects can include redness, tenderness and mild swelling. These should go away on their own over the next day or so, revealing your final results.

Kissing after Lip Injections

Because lip injections can initially create some soreness or swelling, make sure you schedule your appointment several days to a week in advance if you want to be able to take full advantage of your beautiful results in time for Valentine’s Day kissing. This will help to ensure that the injectable has had a chance to settle into place and any side effects have diminished. The only step left is to find your honey and pucker up!
