Are lip fillers worth it?

Why do people choose lip fillers?

People choose to get lip fillers to enhance their natural lip shape. By creating symmetry and dimension to the lips, it therefore gives the person a fuller and more luscious pout. Some people may choose to get lip filler to fix an imperfection, or to gain the glamorous celebrity look. Having lip injections can be a big confidence booster for someone who may be unhappy with their natural lips. Even though getting plumper lips is what the client is paying for, they also can come out with a blossoming smile too.

How long does lip filler last?

Lip filler tends to last around 6 to 18 months. This can vary depending on how your lips take to the filler and what type of look you wish to have. Most people like to get their lips topped up every 6 months to keep their lips looking rejuvenated for longer. Once the filler has been left in the lips for a long time, the body will start to break down the filler and the lips will gradually start to decrease in size. Topping up your lips doesn’t mean you need to have loads of filler. By adding a small amount to the corners and the cupids bow it lifts the lips and create a voluminous look.

Is the lip filler treatment safe?

Getting lip injections is extremely safe if it is done by a qualified team with years of experience. In this case, allergic reactions are very rare. When done by a professional there should be minimal discomfort as numbing cream is applied to keep the client pain-free.

Once the procedure is complete there may be some redness, swelling and potentially some minimal bruising to the lips but this should go down some times after the treatment.

What I should do after the treatment?

To reduce the redness and swelling, the key is to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Avoid processed foods, fast food and foods with a high amount of salt as these types of foods can make a person dehydrated. Apply ice to the area of swelling to circulate blood to the lips. The ice can also help to numb any pain from the bruising.
