Are you on the fence about getting lip fillers to improve your appearance? They can be a great way to make your lips look fuller, reduce fine lines around your mouth, and get a more defined shape. The best way to reduce those nervous jitters and the last-minute hesitation is to get some answers for some of your most pressing questions. Here are just a few of the things that you need to know about lip fillers before you get them done.
You need a consultation
Some patients believe that a consultation isn’t truly necessary for them to achieve the look they desire. They think that all lip filler is created equal and can be placed with very little planning or forethought. A consultation is a great time to talk about your goals and see what your doctor’s idea is for how to place your lip filler injections. This is an essential step that shouldn’t be skipped!
Lip fillers are completely safe
Many people have bought into the myth that lip fillers are likely to go horribly wrong. However, nothing could be further from the truth when you are having them placed by an experienced and highly trained professional. We use the latest FDA-approved lip fillers on the market to ensure that they are completely safe for each of our patients. They can be injected quickly and easily into the lips, but we can also dissolve them if you aren’t satisfied with the results.
The process should be painless
Does the idea of inserting a needle into your lip make you cringe at the thought of pain? Unfortunately, lip fillers have gotten a bad reputation for being too painful. You have to know exactly how your doctor or nurse plans to place your lip fillers before you get too far into the process. An experienced team should use a local anesthetic to numb the area before administering the injections. This keeps you from feeling the pain and makes the process a lot more pleasant for the patient.
You may need a few days to see the best results
When you leave the chair on the first day, you are likely to see some noticeable results with your new lips. You can start to get an idea of what they will look like with the added volume and definition. However, you will have to wait a few days to get the full effect. Despite the fact that it is a relatively painless procedure, you will still have some bruising and swelling while your lips adjust to the filler. Plan to spend a few days going incognito after your filler is done.
Getting lip fillers can dramatically alter your appearance in the best possible way. Allow our experienced and well-qualified team to help you with the consultation for your injectable treatments.
