Question: I wear lipstick on a daily basis and I’m very self-conscious without it. After I receive injectable fillers to enhance my lips, are there certain lipsticks that I should avoid that may react negatively with the procedure?
Answer: During the first few days after the procedure, there is a lot of bruising and swelling. I ask the patient not to wear lipstick so that any change or any possible complication with the procedure can be easily seen. Once this is settled down, I allow the patients to wear lipstick.
