February means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. No matter your relationship status, this the sign you’ve been looking for to take the leap and perfect your pout with lip filler. Treat yourself to kissable lips just in time for the most romantic day of the year, even if you’re spending it single.
Nervous? Don’t be. Here’s everything you need to know about lip filler.
Myth: Lip filler is unnatural
Fact: Lip filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid
The most common injectables used for lip augmentation contain hyaluronic acid— a substance that is naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to store moisture and gives skin that plump, hydrated look. You’ve likely seen this ingredient listed in some of your favorite skincare products, but a topical application can only moisturize, not restore lost volume. Once injected, the dermal filler has the ability to alter the shape, structure, and volume of your pout.
Myth: Lip filler is unsafe
Fact: Lip filler is FDA-approved
Since the main component in the filler is naturally-occurring in the body, as time goes on, the hyaluronic acid is metabolized by our system. Once the treatment wears off, your lips will look exactly the same as they did prior to the injection.
Myth: Lip filler doesn’t last long enough to justify the price
Fact: Lip filler can last up to a year
Lip filler isn’t as serious as a surgical commitment, but it’s no short term fling either. Just one treatment with our expert providers can enhance your look for up to twelve months. The exact amount of time will depend on genetics, amount, and how frequently you move your mouth.
Myth: Lip filler always looks obvious
Fact: Well-done lip filler is subtle
It’s perfectly possible to have lip filler that looks both subtle and natural.
Patients are often concerned that they will look “overdone” or that everyone will know that they’ve had their lips done. The amount injected and the health care provider doing it make all the difference.
We recommend that you start small and work your way up as you grow more confident and more comfortable with the process. Building up also ensures that you don’t go from thin-lipped to drastically plump right away.
In addition to looking natural, adding a bit of filler can alter the appearance of the entire face. A little bit goes a long way when it comes to addressing the appearance of smoker’s lines and even natural smile lines. A bit of plumping even has the effect of creating a more hydrated and youthful appearance.
Myth: Everyone who has their lips filled looks similar
Fact: Not all injectors are created equal
