Everything you need to know before getting lip fillers
Do you dream of having full, well-defined, or revitalized lips? It’s entirely possible with hyaluronic acid lip injections, a practice that’s currently all the rage but one that may raise a few questions. Together with our experts, we have released this guide for you which should answer all your questions regarding lip fillers.
What is injected into your lips?
The first thing to know before getting lip fillers is the type of filler that’s used. Lip fillers are performed through the use of hyaluronic acid. Naturally present in the body, this molecule retains up to 1,000 times its weight in water, which makes it an excellent moisturizing and plumping agent. Another advantage of hyaluronic acid is that it’s dissolvable, which means that it’s not permanent and will be naturally eliminated from the body in a few months.
Why use lip fillers?
Let’s face it: There’s no one reason for getting fillers. Whether psychological or physical, reasons are specific to the individual. They include:
- Counteracting the effects of time: As we age, lips tend to become thinner and lose their fullness. Fillers can give them a fresh look.
- Repairing asymmetry: Injecting hyaluronic acid allows us to correct and essentially redesign the shape of our lips.
- The desire for full and sexy lips: On social media, reality television and in movies, many celebrities have full and plump lips. Fortunately, this look isn’t reserved just for the stars. Lip fillers can add a touch of glamour to your face. And if you are a fan of “less is more”? You can always ask your practitioner for a natural look that’s very subtle.
At Fillmed, we fully believe in self-expression. Whether you’re looking to enhance the natural beauty of your face, boost your self-confidence, or correct an issue, our experts will always listen to you to help you achieve the best results based on your wishes, all while preserving the natural shape of your lips.
What should you expect after a lip injection?
Immediately after the injections your lips may be swollen or slightly bruised. Don’t panic! These mild issues will fade away within 24 to 48 hours. And if you are looking for a “wow” effect, lip fillers are perfect! The results are immediate and will be even more beautiful a few days after the procedure once the product has stabilized.
How long do lip fillers last?
On average, the effects of lip fillers last between 12 and 18 months. However, this can vary according to your lifestyle (sun exposure, sports participation, tobacco use, etc.) and your body’s ability to break down hyaluronic acid.
Everyone is different and breaks down hyaluronic acid at their own rate. Injected hyaluronic acid is broken down in the same amount of time as the hyaluronic acid that’s naturally present in the body.
How long should I wait before having another procedure?
There are no rules! You can wait for the product to disappear completely or come back for touch-ups in order to maintain the look of the first few months. Your practitioner will provide you with detailed information about the expected longevity of FILLMED lip fillers and offer guidance on maintenance and touch-up schedules
What to know before getting lip fillers: Are there any risks?
Injecting hyaluronic acid is safe as long as it’s done by licensed physicians. With the democratization of cosmetic medicine, “fake injectors” have emerged. These are people who are not trained to perform this kind of procedure and, even worse, are not authorized to do so. This entails health risks along with aesthetic risks for the person receiving the injections.
Remember that injections must be performed by medical professionals (physicians or surgeons). Knowledge of anatomy, the diagnostics provided, the use of laboratory products, and the necessary experience all help ensure safety with respect to lip fillers.
Can anyone get lip fillers?
Lip fillers are intended for adults only. At FILLMED, we don’t give them to children or teenagers. Lip fillers are also not given to people with autoimmune diseases (whether active or treated with immunosuppressants) or to pregnant women.
In certain situations, the procedure may be postponed:
- If the patient has ear, nose & throat (ENT) diseases, such as sinusitis or angina.
- If the person is suffering from fatigue, stress or isn’t feeling well, this may affect the facial features.
The practitioner will ensure that the patient is in the appropriate condition for receiving injections.
How should I prepare for getting lip fillers?
No particular preparation is required. It’s best to avoid taking blood thinners before your appointment. This includes not taking painkillers (aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.) several days before your appointment, as they thin the blood and promote bruising during the procedure. Additionally, the patient should not consume alcohol within 24 hours of the procedure.
What to know before getting lip fillers : are lip fillers painful?
The pain experienced during hyaluronic acid injections varies greatly from person to person, but don’t worry, it’s more uncomfortable than painful. And there’s a chance you won’t feel any pain because to make the experience as comfortable as possible, the doctor may apply an anesthetic beforehand.
