Lip expectation vs reality!

More recently lip fillers have become very popular. Many people are looking for that “Kylie Jenner” look and, although larger lips can be achieved with makeup, it does not compare to lip filler.

If you are sitting at home contemplating lip filler because your lips don’t balance your face, or you want more volume, then fillers may be an option for you.

HOWEVER there are a few misconceptions about lip injections that you  should educate yourself about and understand before you make the jump.

Professional practitioners administering injections matter!

cosmetology-2520554_640It is important that you see a professional; a qualified practitioner who is trained with experience in facial aesthetics. Almost all the “botched” photos you will see are from untrained practitioners. It is important to look at their reviews and pictures so you can see the quality of their work, after all you want somebody who can create a perfect balance and the result that you wanted.

Results can vary

Every face is different. Some people may need less treatments than others and it is important to understand that you may not get the full result the first time around.

Every face reacts differently and you may get minimal swelling, you may not, you may get lumps, you may not, you may get unwanted lines or shape, you may not. Although every practitioner will do their best to give you the results you desire, this cannot always be achieved in one sitting and you may require further top ups or augmentation to “correct” the lips to achieve your goal.

It is also important to remember that your face may react differently each time you have injections. Just because you did not have any side effects from previous filler, does not men you won’t the next time.

Lip Injections are not permanent

Filler is often advertised as lasting 9- 12 months however, especially in the lip area, it is more realistic that it will last 6 months for most people. This is because the lips are mobile and vascular. You will always keep a better result if you get a filler top up before all the filler has dissolved completely.  Once you stop getting filler the lips will eventually go back to how they were prior to fillers. They will not suddenly “deflate” or look “saggy”

 Remember lip injections is not a “one size fits all” it is important to have a consultation prior to treatment to discuss your expectations and any concerns.

Lip Augmentation

 

Lip fillers

Also known as lip enhancement or lip augmentation, lip filler treatment can help you have fuller lips, restore the volume to lips that may have lost the definition they used to have when you were younger, or simply enhance the shape of your lips. This can give heart-1301904_640your smile more definition, make the most of your ‘cupid’s bow’ and give you more confidence if you feel your lips are too thin.

It is a non-surgical procedure, which is growing in popularity, with the term ‘lip fillers’ being the most googled beauty items in the google search engine. It is a popular treatment with people of all ages and if carried out by professionals, such as ourselves, is a safe procedure.

We’ve all heard horror stories of ‘lips gone wrong’ giving a ‘trout pout’, but a lot of these horror stories  were when lip fillers were made from silicone, which is no longer the case here in the UK.

What is a lip filler?

We use an injectable dermal filler, which typically lasts for around six months. The product we use contains substances similar to hyaluronic acid…this type of filler improves the look of your lips by adding shape, structure and volume.

The benefits of using this type of filler is that hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body, so there is less of a chance of you having an allergic reaction. However, with any substance, there is a small chance – you MUST let us know if you are allergic to lidocaine, which is also an ingredient in the filler.

lips-2122146_640Using the product we use, gives us control over the amount of substance that we inject, so we have full control of how much lip volume is created and will check with you throughout the treatment. There will be some lumps and bumps after initial treatment, which are created by the movement of your lips when you speak, eat etc. but these can be massaged and dissolved easily. With the products we use, there may also be less bruising or swelling compared to other dermal fillers. Finally, although the results are fairly long lasting, they are not permanent.

Please feel free to give us a call and we can discuss your requirements. We always have a face-to-face consultation with you prior to treatment, so everything can be properly assessed and explained.

We reserve the right to refuse treatment, if we feel there would be any problems.
