5 Myths About Lip Filler
Thinking about getting lip filler and are afraid you’ll end up with duck lips? You’re not alone! All it takes is seeing one botched lip job to swear off injectables for good.
Over the years many techniques, safety, and improvements have been made to make lip filler the most popular treatments.
Now let’s explore these 5 myths about lip filler.
I can’t Fix a Bad Lip Injection
Some Fillers take up to two years to break down which leaves you feeling stuck. Filler with hyaluronic acid such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse have smaller particles which gives a natural looking result.
Just wait for swelling to go down and your lips are back to normal. If you don’t love the way your lips turned out your provider can inject an an eraser enzyme called Hyaluronidase to immediately dissolve the filler.
I’m too young for filler
When we think of injectables and filler we think of how its primarily used to treat signs of aging. However, patients of all ages have been using fillers to enhance their features.
Hyaluronic acid in the filler assists in collagen production and can prevent the slow down physical signs of aging.
Lip Injections are only for people with thin lips
Even though lip filler is mostly used to add volume to the lips, you can also adjust undefined cupid’s bows, asymmetry, disproportionate top and bottom lips, turned down corners, or dry cracked lips.
Lip Filler Stretches Your Lips
Many of us think that lip filler will stretch your lips and that you’ll have to continue forever or else your lips will deflate and sag. This is not true!
Injecting hyaluronic acid filler into the skin stimulates collagen production. Even after filler is completely dissolved and what is left over actually thickens your skin’s dermis.
No Natural Look
It is important to do research and make sure the provider is up to date on the latest techniques and training to ensure optimal result. The problem with many botched lip injections is lack of training and technique.
