Everything You Should Know Before Getting Lip Injections
You may get a cold sore on your lips.
If you have even gotten cold sores, which is from the Herpes Simplex Virus 1, it could be pretty embarrassing to go outside, let alone discuss it with others. But if you think you might have the virus, it is important to discuss it with your physician. If you do not disclose the fact that you have a history of cold sores, you are more likely to get a cold sore soon after getting lip fillers. This is because needle punctures can trigger cold sores, according to Shilpi Khetarpal, MD. If you get cold sores, your doctor will give you a dose of valacyclovir, better known as Valtrex, right before you get lip fillers to prevent cold sores.
