One of the most popular cosmetic procedures over the last decade is hyaluronic acid (HA) based lip fillers. The trend of having a fuller and more voluminous pout started in show biz celebrities.
The onset of social media has only accelerated the demand for this treatment enabling more women than ever to show off their new, voluptuous lips. Research has shown that men are drawn to a woman’s pout more than any other facial feature. But what are the essentials you need to know about this treatment.
Let us at Reflections Health & Medical Spa share with you the 5 most important things that you need to know when considering lip fillers.
Fillers are temporary
Lip fillers should only be given by a qualified, experienced professional
The results should look natural
Slight bruising and swelling is normal
There is no “one size fits all” approach to lip fillers
Expect to see results right away
You will see changes right after the treatment, but first expect some swelling that will cause the lips to look uneven. However, it should not last for more than 2 weeks. During this time, any imperfections will be corrected by our experts. Be aware that in certain cases they may use hyaluronidase which will dissolve the HA filler as needed to adjust the final effect for beautiful lips.
When doing a lip filler, it is normal to feel lumpiness in your face, lips, chin, and even cheeks. After a few weeks, the lumpiness will start to disappear. To speed up the process, it is best to use ice and gentle massages.
Lip Ratio Is Important
The perfect lip ratio is something like 1/3 volume upper and 2/3 volume lower lip. This has been agreed among the experts and looks more natural and beautiful than any other ratio.
The final result should be natural-looking lips
An expert aesthetician is focused on providing you with great results, but you should keep in mind the focus on a natural look could mean several visits, as each person’s face is different and how your skin reacts to the injectable will vary.
The goal of lip fillers is to uneven the irregularities in the lips, and while doing that, add a volume that will provide a fuller look. When you will have your lips done, a natural finish means you should not recognize the cosmetic corrections. You will have that all-natural.
