Herpes after lip augmentation - what to do?

Herpes after lip augmentation - what to do? In plastic surgery, two types of lip augmentation are used. The first is carried out by injection. In this case, the most popular are injections based on hyaluronic acid. Its main property is to moisturize and make the skin more elastic. According to the body’s perception ability, drugs on this basis are very easily tolerated. Injections have virtually no side effects. This is the so-called gentle plastic. Women can instantly correct the contours and eliminate shallow facial wrinkles.

The disadvantage of such injections of hyaluronic acid is the temporary effect of exposure. The validity period is from 8 to 15 months. For a longer preservation of the effect of the correction, surgical or cheiloplasty is used. Also, operations are used in cases where beauty injections do not bring the desired effect.

But, as with any surgical intervention, there is a small percentage of negative consequences. The most common is herpes.

Why herpes appears after injections on the lips

The first thing to remember and understand is that the herpes virus is in a dormant state in almost every person. Awakening occurs in the presence of external factors contributing to this. The disease manifests itself in the form of a rash on the outside of the mouth. Outwardly, these are bubbles with a clear liquid. The cause of the manifestation of the virus is a decrease in immunity in humans. As a rule, this is a consequence:

  • hypothermia;
  • eating disorders;
  • past stress;
  • sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical activity;
  • surgical interventions on the front surface.

That's why such rashes after plastic surgery are a common occurrence. Let's try to figure out the reasons for the appearance.

Beauty injections prevail today among the techniques that are used to correct the cut of the lips. For the human body, hyaluronic acid is a fairly natural substance. It is located in the human body in various kinds of tissues and is also responsible for the elasticity of the epithelium.

Nature arranged our body in such a way that over the years, the production of nutrients decreases. The same thing happens with hyaluronic acid. A critical age is considered to be about thirty years. This process is irreversible, but the time of the onset depends on the environment, climate and bad habits. The result is a manifestation of signs of aging: sagging skin, the appearance of wrinkles.

It is believed that one of the first manifestations of old woman's appearance on the lips. Over time, the shape is lost, the corners of the mouth begin to sink and look down, facial wrinkles become noticeable. The popularity of injections lies primarily in the fact that the effect of them is instant. With the correct execution of manipulations, pain is practically not felt. Due to the lack of surgery, there are no scars and scars.

To understand the reasons, you need to understand how the process should go and what are the possible consequences after it. To prepare for injections, a woman needs to undergo a preliminary examination. Inspection by specialists and analyzes are aimed at identifying contraindications, if there are none, you can proceed to the consultation of a cosmetologist. There are two techniques for introducing fillers - fan and linear. The choice depends on the condition of the skin, as well as on the desire of the patients. Manipulations are performed under local anesthesia.

After the introduction of acid, the specialist should conduct a light massage, which contributes to the proper distribution of the drug on the lips. If necessary, the first puffiness is removed and recommendations for further care are given. Please note that the success of the operation and the consequences largely depend on how much the patient follows the rules of rehabilitation. The second factor may be the low qualification of the cosmetologist.

The manifestation of rashes after injections is a consequence of the appearance of cracks on the surface of the mouth. These disorders of the epidermis often lead to a decrease in immunity, and this causes wounds. If you do not pay attention to it in time, the virus will spread and it will appear external manifestations. This is a rash. Patients who have a herpes rash - a fairly common occurrence, should be careful about fillers. The likelihood of complications after the procedure in such women is much greater.

It should be noted that there are other complications:

  1. Allergy. It is impossible to exclude the possibility that individual intolerance of an individual substance will manifest itself. This is expressed in various forms:
  • itching
  • red spots;
  • the skin is peeling;
  • burning.

To avoid this, you must pre-pass a test for hypersensitivity.

  1. The appearance of edema. According to the protocol of the procedure, swelling may persist for several days. If nothing has changed, then this indicates the qualifications of doctors. To correct the situation, you need to do a second injection, which will contain a tool that promotes the breakdown of hyaluron. Most often used hyaluronidase. Edema also occurs due to infection or non-compliance with post-treatment recommendations.
  2. Pain and bruising. It has already been mentioned that the feeling of discomfort is a process of two to three days. Residual effects persisting beyond this period are complications. A cold compress will help get rid of the pain, and bruises, as a rule, pass in a week.
  3. Thickening. The occurrence of lumps is often a consequence of non-compliance with the procedure algorithm. Inadequate massage after each injection prevents the gel from distributing properly.

Herpes after lip augmentation - what to do? Another most important precaution. Before deciding on a correction, try to carefully study who you are contacting. Do not forget it is your health.

What is the danger of herpes after lip augmentation?

The herpes virus, once in the body, remains there forever. This is because the introduction of human DNA. In the cells of this infection there are genes that, once inside, begin to produce proteins. When their number exceeds the norm, external symptoms begin, which are expressed in the form of blistering rashes. Unfortunately, removing these genes from DNA is completely impossible.

During the activation of the disease, protein is released into the blood. After completion of treatment, the activity of genes is dulled. If there are no provocative factors, then the viral genes can sleep long enough. Protein production will stop. Outwardly, this does not manifest itself. Only a certain number of tests can show the presence of malicious microbes. Doctors and pharmacologists around the world are trying to solve the problem of quick and high-quality treatment, up to the complete elimination of the disease.

Some believe that if the rashes are not treated, then they will pass by themselves. But this is not only wrong, but also a dangerous mistake. A large number of complications caused by this disease can have the most serious consequences. Open wounds are a direct path for other infectious and serious diseases. The presence of one infection weakens the immune system, so the second - it will take root in it much easier.

Among the known complications:

  • disturbances in the work of the respiratory system, up to pneumonia;
  • malfunctioning of the liver and pancreas due to toxicity of viral cells;
  • meningitis;
  • various forms of arthritis;
  • problems with the nervous system;
  • Alzheimer
  • arrhythmia and other cardiovascular diseases.

Particular attention should be paid to the disease during pregnancy. She is able to harm not only the expectant mother, but also the unborn child.

How to treat cold sores after lip augmentation

The visual appearance of bubbles with a clear liquid on the surface are clear signs of a cold sore rash. Unfortunately, this virus is one of those that cannot be completely cured. Its development can only be dimmed. External manifestations will disappear, but infected cells will remain in a sleepy state. This is called a state of remission.

Today, pharmacists offer treatment with a large number of local medicines and ointments that can suppress the development of the virus. The most widely used and recognized drugs are Acyclovir and Valacyclovir. In principle, any similar drugs of the cyclovirus family are suitable. This is one of the most effective and common antibiotics. From topical medicines are offered:

  • Zovirax;
  • Panavir in the form of a gel;
  • the same Acyclovir Acre, a cream consistency.

At home, you can use any disinfectant. Aloe, juice of garlic or onion, a weak solution of salt will do. But you need to be careful - a solution based on onions, garlic and salt can cause additional irritation and burning. And this is not very nice.

How to care for the corrected surface after the appearance of rashes, so as not to spoil the effect of injections? Simple rules are required:

  1. Antiseptic treatment. In order to extinguish existing foci of infection and prevent their spread over the entire surface, it is necessary to carry out processing before applying ointments. For this, peroxide, furatsilin or chlorhexidine is suitable.
  2. Accuracy. Do not forget that this is an infectious viral disease. It is not only transmitted through direct bodily contact, but also easily develops in a warm environment. To prevent its development, it is necessary to abandon kisses, tanning salons, hot baths and its analogues (baths, saunas) during the treatment. You need to be very careful about hot drinks and food.
  3. Stop for cosmetic procedures. This item applies to any facial procedures, as well as the application of cosmetics. Any form of massage is contraindicated, as they can lead to additional cracks and irritations.

Mandatory fact of giving up bad habits for the above reasons. Smoking and alcohol-containing drinks can cause the spread of the disease and deterioration of the lips.

How to prevent cold sores after injecting hyaluronic acid

Preventing a disease is always easier than treating it then. Therefore, do not hesitate to tell the doctor about your problems at the consultation. Pay special attention to the frequency of herpes rashes. If the client repeats this situation often, then it is better to refuse injections.

But there is an alternative way. It is necessary to pre-drink a course of an antiviral drug. This kind of treatment is called a preventative measure. The method aims to prevent what has not yet happened. One of the drugs prescribed in such cases is Acyclovir.

Just do not self-medicate. The specialist who consults you should write the appointment and paint the schedule of admission. Please note that hepatoprotectors must be taken with the antiviral. Tableted drugs are quite toxic, therefore, a parallel intake of medications aimed at maintaining the liver is required.

Is it possible to prick hyaluronic acid with herpes?

Herpes after lip augmentation - what to do? If your lips are affected by a rash or there are residual effects, then there can be no talk of any beauty injections. Traces of needles can form new places for inflammation. Therefore, there is a strict ban on procedures for injecting hyaluronic acid until complete recovery. That is, until the virus enters a state of remission.

Usually the entire course of treatment is one and a half weeks, but this is subject to the regimen and the absence of complications. An antiviral regimen is usually prescribed for three to five days. It is very important to maintain a proper drinking regimen. Water contributes to the speedy removal of harmful microorganisms from the gastrointestinal tract.

After recovery, you can again return to cosmetic surgery, but it is better to protect yourself with antiviral.

Once again, it is worth noting that the introduction of hyaluronic acid into the labial folds is a very common practice today. The main plus is a quick effect and preservation of a natural form. But do not forget about side effects, the most common of which is a herpes rash. Therefore, do not neglect the recommendations of specialists and stock up on anti-inflammatory drugs.

Is it possible to get rid of persistent herpes

Unfortunately, you can get rid of only external manifestations. Inside the infected cells will remain forever, since their location is DNA. But to blunt the effect of infection, get rid of an unpleasant rash, and then take care of yourself is quite real.

As a treatment, you can use pharmaceuticals and alternative methods. Of the pharmaceutical preparations, the greatest effect, in addition to the ointments listed above, bring:

  1. Oxolinic ointment. It is an inexpensive but very effective anti-inflammatory drug. The ointment not only relieves irritation, but also gives an acceleration to the healing process.
  2. Abreva. A light cream that not only heals, but also stops the spread of bubbles throughout the mouth.
  3. Herperax. One of the analogues of the well-known acyclovir. He deliberately fights against the manifestation of infection. Soothes the skin and prevents inflammation.

The maximum treatment regimen is a week. Do not forget that due to the fact that the viral manifestations are very strong, ointments and tablets are toxic enough for internal organs in general. To support life, pay attention to drugs to maintain liver function and increase immunity. Echinacea and Immunal are well suited here. Immunomodulators need to be taken for a longer time than anti-herpes.

In addition, it is important to adhere to banal hygiene rules. If a sick person is near you, then he needs to allocate personal dishes, a towel. Check that he has all the necessary hygiene items. Try to change the bed more often, especially the pillowcase. Washing is best done with boiling.

Once again, pay attention to the choice of the clinic and specialists who perform manipulations to increase the size of the lips. Do not seek to save on yourself and your health. The consequences can be grave. When choosing a cosmetologist, take an interest in how much time is involved in personal practice, what experience in carrying out such procedures. Such factors can say a lot.
