In this age, where every girl wants that right pout done, getting the lip fillers done right is very important. There’s no harm injecting fillers to your lips to give them that plumper look, but make sure you are aware of what you can expect from your lip filler injections before investing in them.
9 Important Tips Before Getting Lip Fillers
If you are wondering what I should know before getting lip fillers, then here’s what Dr. Safaa Elbanna believes everyone should know:
Fillers aren’t permanent
Yup! Fillers are injectibles that aren’t going to stay forever with you. It sounds both good and equally bad. Good for it can be easily reversed back. You just inject an eraser enzyme that completely nullifies your new look, and bad because you need to keep renewing it every 10-12 months.
What are lip fillers made of?
Before getting the lip fillers done, you need to do proper research on injectibles/fillers. Temporary fillers are most commonly made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is normally found in your body. The HA is a gel that unites all the cells together.
Permanent fillers are usually man-made or synthetic. They can potentially cause infections or your body might reject it bringing greater challenges for you.
Ask your surgeon what lip filler he will be using in your injection. Ideally, you should go for natural lip fillers.
Finding the right place
Finding the right place for the injectibles is very essential. Fillers should be done by certified medical practitioners, dermatologists or cosmetologists.
Letting a layman experiment it on you for saving a few dollars should be a big no. It is a medicinal conduct and should be handled by experts solely.
At Selbanna Wellness, we are trained and approved by the required authorities to inject fillers in the lips.
What are the side effects?
The side effects are mostly of a temporary nature. Your lips might bulge, swell or bruise up temporarily. According to various experts, the side effects are minimal compared to fillers used on other parts of your face.
The swelling, however, can take up to 1-3 days to fully disappear depending on the person.
All fillers are different
Safe to say but Collagen is not the only dermal product available nowadays. We can easily find various high-quality fillers that may include Hyaluronic acid, which is resistant to lumps and bumps. You need to find a good quality product not creating a mess for you, in the long run.
Don’t go for an Instragammable look
Sure, our virtual world is way more appealing where you get to see pretty faces with perfectly pouty lips. But you need to be realistic and be as natural as possible. Nobody likes to see a walking Barbie 24/7 anyway.
Choose an honest practitioner
You have to choose the right person telling you all details honestly– who can tell you what can be achieved, refuse money, not giving you a ridiculously over done pouty lips.
Lip fillers are painful
Yes, they are. Experts use anesthesia to block and numb the nerves before injecting these fillers, but you still might feel some pain during and after the surgery.
We recommend use ice packs after the surgery to manage the pain. You’ll also be given pain killers.
Cost of lip fillers
Pricing may vary everywhere. It totally depends on who and where is the procedure performed.
Hope these are beneficial for you to get to a wise decision before getting the lip fillers done.
