Everything You Should Know Before Getting Lip Injections
You also should not have stiffening or ulceration of the lips.
When you get lip fillers, you are more likely to get canker sores on your lips. Canker sores are ulcers that usually appear on your lips when you are stressed out. Unlike cold sores, canker sores are not contagious, but they can still be uncomfortable. Like cold sores, needle punctures from lip fillers could trigger canker sores. Canker sores could range in size. They are usually minor, but can also be major or even herpetiform in appearance, according to Mayo Clinic. Herpetiform canker sores may look like cold sores in appearance but are not caused by the Herpes Simplex virus. Ulceration of the lips can also occur if a doctor uses a filler that is too thick for your lips, according to Kristine Brecht, MD. Massaging over time can help.
