Lip fillers give millions of women the perfect pout. Large, plush lips can easily be achieved with lip injectables, and if you hate them, they slowly fade. Below are a few things you need to know about lip fillers.
- It’s Quick And Instant.
The entire process of getting fillers only lasts an hour. You talk with your cosmetic surgeon about your exact needs. Then they show you where they will insert the filler. Right after you get the filler, you’ll see results quickly. Don’t freak out when you see a little brusing or swelling. This should all subside in a few days. The thing that might take the longest is actually the preparation when you decide how big you want your lips. Once you figure this out, the rest is quick and easy. You’ll see instant results, but your fillers won’t settle for a few days after any swelling goes down.
- You Aren’t Kylie Jenner.
Everyone has different lips. When you bring in your plump-lipped photo of Kylie Jenner, doctors are going to roll their eyes. Your lips might not be the same shape as hers, so you might not get the same effect. It’s better to explain to the doctor the size you prefer. Your doctor does this for a living, so they understand what works best for each person’s shape and size of face. Most celebrities that are known for their plump pouts have had years of tweaking them to get the perfect results. You might not love the first time you get fillers, so you can change it up the next time for your preferred effect.
- Different Fillers Produce Different Results.
At one time, collagen was the only option women had for fillers. Now there are different types of dermal fillers. These are based on the substance in our bodies that occurs naturally called hyaluronic acid. This is attracted to water and binds tightly to moistre. This also helps keep away lumps and bumps on the lips. These usually even out quickly if they do pop up. The technology is always growing and changing. Doctors want the most natural look possible using the most non-toxic ingredients for your body.
- Fillers Fade.
As much as you wish that filler would last forever, it’s going to fade. It depends on the formula you choose as to how quickly it disappears. It is usually from six months to a year. This just means you need basic maintenance like when you get a haircut, get microblading or get a pedicure.
- Bruising And Swelling Differ On Each Person.
Everyone has heard a horror story of someone that had crazy, puffy lips with bruising around them. This doesn’t happen to every person. The top of the lip is usually the most sensitive. It’s best to use ice, stay away from Motrin and alcohol and don’t touch your lips for the best results. Everybody is different so it can be tough to predict if your lips will bruise and swell. The good news is that it will go away.
- How Big Is Too Big?
It’s important that you decide before you even go to the appointment how big is too big for you. If you want a plump overall look, you’ll ask for both your upper and bottom lips to be fuller. The problem is that many people go overboard and end up with Lisa Rinna’s lips. Most people still want a natural look, but some still want a dramatic change. Once you decide on the size you choose for your lips, the doctor can alter their technique.
If you’re thinking about getting fillers, most people love the fuller look on their lips. Consult with your cosmetic physician to determine what works best for your lips. Remember that every person is different, so it’s important to work with your doctor to know the technique perfect for you.
