What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are a procedure, using injections to enhance the appearance of the lips. They are used to correct uneven lips, hydrate and smooth lips, lift the corners of the mouth, and most commonly, provide volume to lips that otherwise seem flat or deflated with age.. The substance used most commonly is hyaluronic acid. Although hyaluronic acid may sound worrying, there is no need to be alarmed. The clear gel is found naturally in the body,where its function is to attract water and provide hydration to the skin.
Before The Fillers
Before you go through with getting lip fillers, there are a few steps you can take. Firstly, discussing with your clinician your specific lip concerns and facial aesthetic you would like to achieve . The lip fillers range from a fine gel to soft or firm and your clinician will advise which product will be the best solution for your lips.
During The Procedure
Once you have discussed the procedure and a plan of treatment is created , it is time to go through with getting lip injections. The fillers contain an anaesthetic ,but a numbing cream may be applied prior for 15-20 mins to make the procedure more comfortable Lip injections feel like a sharp pinch, though each individual will vary in their sensation of the treatment. Depending on the complexity of the procedure lip fillers take a varying amount of time from 15-30 mins. A gentle balm is applied to the lips and aftercare instructions are given to ensure the quickest healing so you can enjoy your new lovely lips.
What To Expect Afterwards
