Drink plenty of water 
No smoking
No alcohol for 24 hrs. It can promote swelling 
Continue taking cold sore medication or lysine.
No other lip products on the lips for 10 days (lip stick, gloss, scrubs) 

It takes a minimum of 30 days for the color to fully stabilize  
During that time clients may experience some or all the following:
Mild flaking. DO NOT pick at the skin

Color fluctuations
Uneven coloring
Soreness
Smoking during the healing process will have bad effects in the pigment that has been implanted. Secondly, the color of the lip will continue to shift if the client continues to smoke.
