DO I HAVE TO TAKE ANY PRECAUTIONS PRIOR TO A LIP PROCEDURE?

If you have ever had a cold sore or fever blister, you must take an antiviral pre-procedure.  Your physician may prescribe Valtrex, Famvir or Zovirax.  Herpetic outbreaks usually occur on the 3rd day post procedure and taking antivirals will lessen your chance of an outbreak.  If you do experience a herpetic outbreak, you may lose the implanted pigment colour in the area of the outbreak.
