Radiofrequency

An aesthetic nurse will do several passes on your lips by treating with radiofrequency. Radiofrequency is similar to laser and LED treatments, it uses energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The heat energy is electrical instead of being light based. This treatment has become more popular throughout the years and uses radiofrequency energy to heat the dermis and tighten the skin without damaging the top layer. The treatments are comfortable and warm and take 20-45 minutes. Expect to have a lot of redness for up to 24 hours.

How Do I Prepare For A Lip Enhancement?

Preparation for lip enhancement depends on what kind of procedure you and your aesthetic plastic surgeon are doing and you will be provided preoperative instructions to help you be in the best shape before and to recover properly.

  • Stop smoking at least 6 weeks before for better healing.
  • Avoid taking aspirin and any certain anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal medications that can cause increased bleeding
  • Hydration is important before and after
  • If you are having a surgical procedure make sure you have someone to drive you home after your surgery and stay overnight during your recovery
