Is it safe to have lip fillers if you have a lip piercing?

I had lip fillers before i got my Verticle lip piercing. I’ve just booked in for more in July! I’m just wondering if having my lip piercing would effect the lip fillers in anyway? Also, would it be ok to take the piercing out before the fillers then put it back in afterwards? Or will i just need to take it out completely? Thank you.

    I think it would be fine. I suspect there are plenty of people out there who have had fillers and piercings.You probably don't need to remove it for treatment, but the clinician you see will advise on that.
    All the best!

    Hi Shannon,

    Thanks for your question.  Your lip piercing shouldn’t affect your treatment, however this should be fully assessed at a consultation prior to injecting. 

    Good luck and all the best,
