Plump, plump lips have become popular since Kylie Jenner started showing them off on all her social media. Thus, overnight, lip fillers have gained more popularity not only among young girls, but also among older women
And what are lip fillers themselves? They are injections that are placed at strategic points on your lips to give them a moisturizing appearance, greater volume and a youthful appearance. In years past, the compound most used to fill the lips was collagen; but currently, a variety of options are offered, among which hyaluronic acid stands out.
Applying lip filler is a treatment that has immediate effects and lasts from six to one year, approximately. Therefore, it is very likely that if you do it once, you will do it a second or third time. And while it's a relatively straightforward procedure, plumping your lips shouldn't be taken lightly. If you are already determined, here we share what the American Academy of Dermatology recommends to keep in mind before letting you prick your already beautiful lips.
See a certified dermatologist
Find a certified dermatologist and make sure they already have experience with lip fillers. Also try to investigate the experiences of other patients; nothing speaks better than happy patients with their new lips.
Keep in mind your goals
Choose the treatment that meets your expectations. Ask your dermatologist about the substances he applies and decide which one is best for you. Also make sure that the treatment is within your budget since it can range from 500 to 2,000 dollars per injection. Keep in mind what you want to invest in case of repeating the procedure.
It is a medical procedure
Do not forget that applying lip fillers is a medical procedure and must be performed in the appropriate facilities. Therefore, never do this treatment in a non-medical spa, at a party, a beauty salon or in someone's home.
Recommendations for before and after a Botox treatment
Go little by little
It may be tempting to want those bulky Kylie Jenner-type lips, but think that you might not like them or not fit your face. That is why we recommend you opt for small quantities so that you can calculate how large you want them.
Some of the normal side effects are: itching, burning sensation, inflammation and bruising; These can be very brief or take up to 14 days to disappear.
Consider your medical history
Before the procedure, talk to your doctor about possible allergies or if you are prone to having sores in your mouth. Better safe than sorry.
