The difference between the regular Mini Lip and the Russian Mini Lip is the amount of product that's used. In the Russian Mini Lip, there's a little bit more product used. And, the reason I have more product in this one is because I really like to accentuate the Cupid's bow. It's the part that defines the top lip. And, this is for the person that wants to have a very crisp, sharp Cupid's bow. That's the difference between the two.
OK, so the instructions before getting dermal fillers are pretty easy. No alcohol consumption, 24 to 48 hours. That's going to thin the blood and you don't want anything that thins the blood because it can open you up to extra bruising. So, that also goes for NSAIDs. Another thing that you want to avoid before you get injections is any laser treatments or strong chemical peels on the skin for about two weeks.
So, post-op instructions are pretty simple. For 24 hours after getting injections, you want to avoid working out. You want to avoid saunas. And, you also want to avoid any kind of excessive laser treatments, chemical peels, or anything like that. You want to just basically take two days off. The only thing you want to be doing is icing the area that got injected.
