Want Luscious Lips? Here's What you Need to Know!
Plumping the pout is something that everyone seems to be talking about today. This trend may have begun years ago, but it was made exceedingly popular in recent months after the Kardashian half-sister Kylie Jenner admitted to reshaping her lips with temporary fillers. With augmentation is something performed in many dermatology and Medspa offices on a daily basis. Being a more common procedure does not necessarily mean, however, that you should jump right in to the plumping trend without knowing all the facts.
Lip Plumping isn't for Everyone
The fact of the matter is, some people can obtain outstanding results when soft tissue fillers are injected into a barely-there lip. Jenner is a prime example of this. Another instance in which lip augmentation can be advantageous is when volume has decreased as a result of the aging process. When neither of these concerns exists, adding more volume to already voluminous lips can quickly lead to an unnatural appearance.
From a medical standpoint, there are also conditions that may increase the risk of complications from dermal fillers for lip augmentation. These include:
- Facial nerve disorders
- Persistent herpes simplex lesions
- history of allergies
Are Lip Fillers Right for You?
Due to the popular trend, we can see why many patients are seeking lip augmentation with soft tissue fillers. Under the right circumstances, meaning an experienced practitioner, this treatment can achieve wonderful results. Here's how to make sure you get the luscious lips:
- Consult with a licensed, trained injector. The longer your provider has been performing lip augmentation, the better results you can expect.
- During your consultation for lip augmentation, view photographs of lip shapes and sizes that are attractive to you. You may bring images with you to your appointment, but you should also ask for direct evidence of your practitioner’s experience, i.e. Before and After images.
- Follow your providers’ instructions for aftercare. There's no downtime needed for lip augmentation with dermal filler's. However, patients are advised to avoid taking ibuprofen or aspirin after treatment. Additionally, strenuous exercise that increases circulation, or any body or facial treatments that increase circulation to the face should be postponed for at least 24 hours.
