6 Things You Must Know Before Your First Lip Filler Treatment

Lip fillers are an excellent way to achieve fuller and more youthful-looking lips. If you are considering this cosmetic treatment, here are some of the top things you need to know about lip fillers first.

Having full lips can often make you look more youthful and improve your appearance. If you are concerned about naturally thin lips or your lips are losing volume due to age, a customized lip filler treatment could help create a more aesthetically pleasing mouth. 

Your skin care specialist might suggest a lip filler treatment if: 

  • You have naturally thin lips
  • Age has caused your lips to lose volume 
  • You have asymmetrical lips 
  • You are concerned about any wrinkles around your mouth
  • Fuller lips will balance out your features for a more pleasing appearance

6 Things to Know Before Your Lip Filler Treatment 

A full pout can improve your appearance and make you look younger. However, there is only so much that makeup can do, which is why people are increasingly turning to lip fillers. 

While lip fillers are an excellent and safe way to add volume to your lips, there are a few things you need to know before you opt for this treatment: 

1. Expect some swelling.
You will see the results of your lip fillers almost immediately, but your lips will be slightly swollen at first. This should reduce within 72 hours of the procedure, and you’ll be able to enjoy your new pout.

2. The results are not permanent.
Lip fillers provide excellent results, but they are not permanent. Over time, your body will absorb the fillers and you will have to undergo repeat treatments every 6-12 months to maintain the appearance of your lips.

3. It’s important to have realistic expectations.
Before your treatment, you must have realistic expectations of the outcomes. The goal of lip injections should be to artistically enhance your existing lip shape without altering your unique appearance. If you have unrealistic expectations of what this treatment can achieve, then it may not be right for you.

4. Seek a reputable injector.
Experience truly counts when it comes to a lip filler treatment, so make sure you pick an injector that has the right credentials and knowledge for this procedure. Such a professional will listen to you and craft a customized plan of care, which can make all the difference for your results.

5. A bad filler treatment is reversible.
If you are not happy with the results of a prior lip filler treatment, it can be removed by injecting an enzyme called hyaluronidase that breaks up the particles and causes the filler to break down. This can be performed in-office.

6. A good filler is invisible.
Lip fillers shouldn’t feel any different to your real lips. Your skin care specialist may recommend having injections over a series of appointments, which results in a more gradual and naturally refreshed appearance.
