While we have been hiding our lips under masks for over a year, it is time to finally reveal them to the world. If your mask was hiding thinner lips or small lines around your mouth, there is no reason to hide your lips any longer.
If you have been considering lip filler treatment, you probably have many thoughts and questions. Is it possible to get truly natural-looking lips that also feel natural? Will people notice that I have had anything “done” to my lips? Will it hurt?
Of course, you want others to think that you have beautiful, full lips, but many people do not want others to notice that they have had a lip injection.
In just a short time, your lips are fuller, better shaped, and moisturized. Because lip fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, they instantly plump and shape your lips. The hyaluronic acid attracts water to keep your lips looking moisturized and healthy day after day.
Lip filler treatment starts with a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort (e.g. topical lidocaine). Next, an antiseptic is applied to the areas where the injections will take place. Then the filler (also containing lidocaine) is injected into the designated areas.
Swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort can be expected over the first few days, which are treated with over-the-counter pain relievers and arnica. Sunlight sensitivity may also occur, so avoid direct sunlight for the first few days after treatment. Expect it to take two weeks to get the full results of lip filler treatments.
What are you waiting for...bring back lost volume to your lips and help reduce the appearance of surrounding mouth wrinkles by improving tissue density, making it less prone to wrinkling.
