Thanks to the rise of celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, more and more people are wanting to plump up their pout. With millions of pouting selfies being posted across social media every day, more and more women (and men) are wanting to use temporary lip fillers to give their lips a boost. If you’re wondering about such treatments, we have come up below with 7 things you need to know.
You’ll see the results of your lip filler treatment almost immediately
Unlike some cosmetic procedures where you will have to wait a little while to see the full results, you’ll see the results of lip filler treatment almost immediately. You’ll find that your lips may feel a little swollen at first but give them 24 hours and you’ll soon see them settling down and you’ll see your new filled out lips in all their glory.
Think that kissing your loved one will feel different? There’s no need to worry…
Once concern that many people have is whether their lips will feel ‘different’ somehow, especially when kissing their loved one! We can put your mind at rest. If your lip filler treatment is done by a highly experienced surgeon such as Dr Irshad here at Dermashine your lips will feel no different than they did before.
What about allergic reactions?
Some clients are of course worried about any allergic reactions that could occur with lip filler treatment. In the old days when most doctors used collagen, there was an approximate 1% to 3% chance of an allergic reaction. Since the move to HA fillers, thankfully allergic reactions are even rarer, as can be seen from this scientific study ‘Skin Treatments and Dermatological Procedures to Promote Youthful Skin’ by Paul G Sator of the Department of Dermatology, Municipal Hospital Lainz, Vienna, Austria.
There is practically zero downtime
The great thing about lip filler treatment is that it literally takes between 15 and 30 minutes to do, with the numbing wearing off about 15 minutes after the treatment has finished. Then, you’re free to go back to your normal life, zero downtime! Within 24 hours, you’ll be able to properly see the lips you’ve always dreamed of.
The results will last for about four to six months
Lip filler treatments are long lasting. Of course everybody is different, but you will find that generally treatments last between four to six months. If you’re on the thin side, you may find you will metabolize the formula faster meaning they may last close to four months rather than six, but like we said earlier, it can vary from person to person.
The procedure is virtually painless
One concern that people have about all cosmetic procedures is whether there will any degree of pain involved. With lip fillers, we’re happy to confirm the procedure is almost entirely pain free.
Don’t like how your lips look after treatment? Not a problem…
Because lip fillers use a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA), if in the unlikely occurrence that you do not like what your lips look like after lip filler treatment, then it is easily remedied. Because hyaluronic acid is not permanent, it can be easily erased by injecting hyaluronidase. This dissolves all of the HA within minutes, returning your lips to their original shape.
