4 Key Things to Know If You’re Considering Getting Lip Fillers

Posted: April 4, 2017 By: Comment: 0

If Kylie Jenner’s transformation left you feeling like adding a little more plumpness to your smile, there’s a few things you need to know.

Whilst dermal fillers can help you achieve a new look and improve your selfie pout, before you give the go-ahead it’s crucial to remember that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. So, what works for Kylie (or any other celeb you’re getting lip-envy over) could be a disaster for you.

Whether you’re looking for a total transformation or a subtle touch of fullness, here are the key facts to keep in mind before getting lip treatment.

Plan Ahead:

Your lips go through a lot of stuff throughout the day. Eating, drinking, kissing, braving the cold air and nervous lip-chewing are just some of the ordeals this sensitive part of your face endures, so they are tougher than you think.

But despite that, it’s always important to plan ahead before getting lip fillers. Anticipate swelling and bruising that takes around 24-48 hours to go down. So, it’s probably not the best idea to get the procedure done right before a first date!

Forget About Celebrities:

Sure, you might want to give Kylie Jenner or Megan Fox a run for their money, but aiming to copy the celebrities usually leads to cosmetic surgery disaster. Bigger is not always better!

Even with a small procedure such as lip augmentation, it’s important to focus solely on yourself and what’s going to naturally look good on you. Ask Supreme Skin Solution’s friendly practitioner, Anna, about the best options for your face.

Don’t Expect a Quick Fix:

Many people are disappointed after their first course of dermal fillers; they expected to come away from the clinic with a completely transformed smile. But, filling your lips too much in one go could lead to all sorts of complications; it’s never good to be at high-risk of your lips exploding.

The safest way to achieve your desired look is to build it up gradually, over two or three sessions. This will give your body time to heal and readjust one step at a time, reducing trauma to the area.

Don’t Worry About Pain:

Most people try to avoid unnecessary pain, but if you’re thinking about dermal fillers then this shouldn’t be on your worry list.

Lip filler injections are done using a very thin needle that you’ll barely feel. They’re minimally invasive, so the procedure will be over before you realise!
