Lip fillers are currently one of the most popular aesthetic treatments on the market, and their appeal seems to be growing.
As a non-invasive aesthetic treatment, lip filler enhancements are an easy way to achieve naturally plump-looking lips without committing to surgery.
The following nine tips and tricks can help you navigate the world of lip enhancement and determine if lip fillers can help perfect your pout.
Find a certified doctor
One of the most important things you can do to ensure the results you want is your research. Never leave your injections up to chance at “injection parties” and always make sure your practitioner is Board Certified, and that the injections take place in a medical environment.
Check out potential practitioner’s websites and look over before-and-after photos as well as reviews to get a better feel for their work.
At your consultation, ask about their experience and any concerns you might have regarding treatment. A responsible practitioner should be able to easily answer your questions and put you at ease.
Prepare before your appointment
Preparing for lip filler treatment start one week before your, appointment. During this time, drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and refrain from using aspirin and ibuprofen, as these can hasten bruising.
Remember, when it comes to lip fillers, you get what you pay for.
Never choose your practitioner based solely on price and avoid sale offers that seem too good to be true, as they often lead to poor results.
For proper treatment, you can expect to pay between £500 and £650.
Bruising depends on your procedure
Bruising is a common side effect of lip filler treatment, as the skin around the lips is very fragile and prone to bruising.
For individuals who are hypersensitive to bruising, you can mitigate your chances of turning black and blue with arnica tablets, an all-natural supplement that reduced bruising and swelling.
Types of fillers
When it comes to lip fillers, there are two main categories: Temporary and semi-permanent.
Temporary fillers are usually hyaluronic acid-based, a naturally-occurring sugar substance that is typically absorbed into the body within six months of treatment. HA-based fillers offer a naturally volumised-look but require topping up every six months.
Conversely, permanent fillers can last up to eighteen months before further treatment is required.
Can leftover filler be used?
Yes! If you opt to use less filler in your lips for a more conservative look, you will still have to pay for the entire vile of filler.
Your practitioner can utilise the leftover filler elsewhere on your face to smooth facial lines around the eyes, mouth, forehead, and nose to give your skin a revitalised glow.
They are reversible if you are not satisfied
Are you afraid of the thought of committing to lip fillers? Not a problem! If you change your mind at any point following your procedure, your fillers can easily be dissolved with the injection of an enzyme solution to break down the HA and reverse your results.
Leaving the clinic is not the end of treatments
Although there is no downtime associated with lip filler treatment and the procedure itself typically lasts no longer than an hour, it is best to take a day off from your exercise routine to allow the filler to settle correctly.
Avoid touching the treatment area for 24 hours and skip blood-thinning products, like alcohol and aspirin, for at least three days.
Remember, only make decisions with self-love in mind
No one can and should make your beauty treatment choices for you. You should never feel pressured into making decisions you are uncomfortable with concerning your body and always ensure that any aesthetic choices are made with self-love in mind.
