Most importantly for lips if you are a herpes carrier you can expect a new outbreak about 3-5 days after.
We advise each client even if they usually don’t get herpes to use medication prescribed by the GP to prevent this from happening.
You must start the medication 2 days before your treatment until 3 days after treatment.
If you get herpes after your treatment this will break the outline lip liner we did for your lips and you will have bigger patches.
For best results for lip enhancement this must be prevented with medication, over the counter creams are not as effective.
