People who commonly use cosmetic products may have already tried or heard about lip-fillers. These products are normally used to make the lips appear poutier, making them almost look like to have been stung by bees. However, for those who are considering lip-fillers, there are some thing that they must consider first.
Lip fillers involved injection of dermal fillers on lips to make them plumper. Also known as hyaluronic acid fillers, these injections may also include other chemical substances.
SAFENESS OF LIP FILLERS
People should exercise extreme precaution before they undergo such treatment and they should also ensure that the person who will perform the procedure is qualified.
Meanwhile, some medical doctors advise greatly against undergoing lip-filling procedure in spas or beauty salons. They do not think that beauticians are fully qualified to inject people with lip fillers. Moreover, these people cannot prescribe the necessary medication for any complications that may arise during the procedure.
LIFETIME OF LIP FILLERS
Duration of effects of lip fillers depend on the amount injected and on individuals. For instance, HA fillers may last for four to six months. However, for slimmer people and for those with fast metabolism, lip fillers may last for shorter periods.
DURATION OF LIP-FILLING PROCEDURE
Lip-filling procedure only lasts for 15 to 20 minutes. In relation to this, patients have the option to inject only parts of their lips, one of them, or both.
After numbing the lips with numbing cream, injection of lip filler is performed. Patients may feel pinching sensation during the procedure.
RESULTS OF LIP FILLERS
Effects of lip filling procedure can be noticed right away afterward. Lips may swell a bit but they will go back to normal after a day.
For those who are not satisfied with the result of their lip fillers, they only need to wait a few months until all the fillers in their lips are broken down. In addition, they can also remove the fillers immediately through injections that can dissolve lip-filling substances.
ACCOUNTS OF CELEBRITIES WHO HAD LIP FILLERS
Some celebrities, such Sophie Kasaei, had terrible experienced with their lip fillers. Sophie thought that she looked like “the elephant man” after the procedure. Meanwhile, Geordie Shore received warning because of her addiction to such treatments.
COST OF LIP FILLERS
Lip fillers are quite costly, with prices ranging from 300 to 1500 pounds.
WHERE LIP FILLERS ARE APPLIED
Lip fillers can be injected into both lips or just parts of them. Patients are recommended to seek advice from their beauty physicians regarding the amount of lip fillers that should be injected to their lips.
TABOO PRACTICES WITH LIP FILLERS
Patients are discouraged from exercising during the day of their scheduled appointment to prevent increasing blood flow to the face or having a massage or facial. People should also not take any painkillers, fish oil, or vitamin E, which may act as blood thinners. Presence of blood thinners in the body increases risk of bruising and bleeding.
