It can’t be denied that lip fillers are growing in popularity. Many famous stars are getting injections to have that classic model pout. Yet with so much coverage in the media about lip fillers, how much do you know about them? What can you expect when you get them?
What Are Lip Fillers?
Today’s lip fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid which is found naturally in our bodies. It’s an incredibly useful substance because it can hold up to one thousand times its weight in water. For this reason you’ll find it in a ton of your every day skincare products. It can be injected and then breaks down over a period of months and needs to be redone. This is fantastic for those of us who are scared to make a permanent change. Fillers like these can also be used to create volume in the cheeks, fill wrinkle lines and so much more. One of the best parts of using Hyaluronic Acid fillers is that if anything goes wrong they can easily be dissolved with an antidotal injection.
Are They Safe?
Just like with any procedure there is always a risk to take on. That’s why it’s so important to vet your doctor or cosmetic surgeon before a procedure is done. You don’t want to get any fillers done at a spa or beauty salon unless its done by a cosmetic doctor. This is because if a salon employee does your fillers and something goes wrong, they aren’t able to give you medication or treatments to correct the problem. Before you go with the first doctor you google you will want to look at their gallery of work. This way you can know if they can provide you with the results that you seek. During a procedure your doctor should be unboxing fresh instruments and products, nothing should be second hand or already opened.
Is It Painful?
One of your biggest concerns with any cosmetic work is whether or not it will be painful. When it comes to fillers there isn’t going to be much pain. It can be compared to the same discomfort of getting your eyebrows waxed or threaded. If you have a good doctor who uses the right techniques then there is very little to worry about.
Where Should I Go To Get Mine Done?
This is entirely up to you but one thing is for certain: you should go to a registered cosmetic doctor. You don’t want to get work like this done in a day spa unless it’s done by a registered, board certified doctor. When working with injectables you won’t want to use a person who thinks they know what they are doing. Instead you’ll want someone who has the education, career track record and skill set to be certain they know how to perform what you want done.
