We all have a pair of lips that we were born with and then there are the lips that we all desire. If you are thinking of getting fuller lips, there are some things you should know about Lip Fillers.
Clinic Dermatech, India’s Leading Skin, Hair and Aesthetic Beauty Clinic, who offer Lip Fillers, have shared valuable information for anyone looking to enhance their lips using dermal filler injections.
1. It takes less than 30 minutes to get the lips you want
You don’t have to wait forever to get the lips you want. The total time taken is less than 30 minutes. So, you can get it done during your lunch break.
2. You can see the results immediately!
You can see the effects of the fillers immediately. There may be some swelling initially which subsides within a day or two to give way to the final outcome.
3. You can choose the look!
You can ABSOLUTELY choose the look you want! It is best that you get a reference picture along when you visit the Cosmetic dermatologist/ plastic surgeon for discussions. You can choose the areas of the lips that you want the focus to be on. You can choose to get either the upper lip, the lower lip or both be augmented.
4. Your Lips Don’t Feel Any Different
Your Fuller Lips will not feel any different post procedure. The sensation will be the same. You will be able to feel the same while eating or drinking or even, kissing!
5. There is NO DOWNTIME
The procedure takes less than 15 minutes to perform. There is some numbness of the lips which wears off in around a hour. You can return to work or any other household activity after the procedure.
6. You can schedule the procedure
You can absolutely plan as to when you want the procedure as per your own schedule or convenience. So, if you have any big appearances coming up like get-togethers or weddings or photo-shoots, plan the lip fillers in advance.
7. Lip Filler Results Last Three to Six Months!
The pout that you want so much is temporary. It will last only a few months, three months to a maximum of six months depending on the amount of filler injected as the body metabolizes the filler. The good news is that you can go in for a re-do. Think of it as a check-up of your lips.
8. You can CHANGE the appearance of the lips!
As the effects of the filler are not permanent you can use this to change your look every few months…. a subtle pout for spring and bee-stung lips for monsoon. WOW! Think about that…
9. There are different Lip Fillers available
While there are a number of fillers available in the market, the Cosmetic dermatologist/ plastic surgeon at Clinic Dermatech says that Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the easiest and most natural temporary filler.
10. You can Un-Do the fillers, if you don’t like it, but….
Yes, you can undo the filler if you don’t like the look. It is done with an eraser enzyme called hyaluronidase, which can dissolve the filler within minutes.
11. Consult a Professional
For perfect lips, visit a professional, who is experienced in this specific procedure. You certainly don’t want a botched job. Clinic Dermatech has on panel highly trained and experienced Cosmetic dermatologist/ plastic surgeon that are recognized as being among the best in the field.
12. The filler injections will feel like a pinch and a sting
The procedure feels like a pinch in the beginning and then a slight stinging sensation will be there as the filler is injected which eventually gives way to numbness. The aesthetic practitioners at Clinic Dermatech explain that the lips will be massaged a little and then an ice-pack will be placed for 10-15 minutes. You can resume your work thereafter.
13. Ask for a pain-killer injection or a topical an aesthetic
If you have low pain tolerance, you can ask the doctor to numb the area around the lips with an injection in the gums. This is similar to what a dentist would do before a tooth extraction. Topical an aesthetic creams or numbing creams are also an option.
14. Expect Slight Bruising
There may be slight bruising at the site of the injection along with you losing a few drops of blood, just like any other injection. This bruising will take 3-4 days to disappear. Don’t plan your lip filler on the same day as an important event like a wedding. Keep a buffer of at least 10 days.
15. Keep the Lip Filler Day and Big Day Apart!
Don’t rush to show off your new lips at a wedding party the same day. Wait a few days as there is some slight bruising around the lips. If you have any major functions coming up, plan your procedure a few days in advance.
16. Don’t exercise on the day of the procedure
On the day of the procedure, take care to avoid the activities that increase the blood flow to the face like exercising, facials, massages and kissing.
17. Avoid painkillers for a Week
It is recommended that you avoid taking painkillers and blood thinners for a week before the procedure. Also avoid taking fish oil tablets and Vitamin E as blood thinners can cause the bruising to take a longer time to heal.
18. Tell the doctor about your Medical History
It is best that you discuss your medical pre-conditions and medical history with the doctor before you go in for the procedure. No sense in hiding things like allergies, diabetes, hypertension and pregnancy from the doctor as these medical conditions can affect the outcome as well as increase the healing time.
19. Be Realistic
Please be realistic about the results. Now bee-stung lips may not quite suit every face. Discuss with the doctor as to what is best for you. If you are aiming for natural looking results, increase the size of the lips gradually over time and not in one session.
