Lip injections have become significantly more popular over the past two decades and for good reason. Lip injections can give someone the extra boost in confidence that they need to thrive in life.
But are lip injections right for you? It’s important to know exactly what the procedure is, how it’ll affect you and how long the injections will last.
Read on for five important things to know before getting a lip injection.
- It Doesn’t Really Hurt
Compared to other cosmetic surgeries, lip injections are a breeze when it comes to dealing with the pain of the procedure. Your practitioner will first numb your mouth with a topical or numbing injection (or both).
The numbing agents make the procedure a breeze and you won’t feel a thing until the numbing wears off. After that, expect your lips to feel tender for a few days before the pain completely dissipates.
Your lips will probably bruise and swell following the procedure, but these effects shouldn’t last more than a week.
- It’s a Quick Procedure
Lip injections are an extremely quick procedure, taking no more than 30 minutes to complete. The majority of your appointment will be spent talking to the doctor about the procedure, but the procedure itself is over before you know it.
- Decide on the Type of Lip Filler
When you decide on getting injections in your lips, you need to figure out how big you want your lips and what type of filler you want.
If this is your first lip injection, it’s a good idea to start with a small injection and see how you feel about it. If you want more, you can always get more. But if you go all-in on your first injection and end up with lips much bigger than you’d wanted, you can’t go back until the injection wears off.
You’ll also have to decide on which type of injection you want such as Juvederm or Volbella. Consult with your doctor on which choice is best for the results you want.
- How Long Do Lip Injections Last?
Lip fillers don’t last forever. If you want perfect, luscious lips you’ll have to get them re-injected pretty often.
The amount of time your fillers will last depends on which injection you choose to get. But expect your fillers to last anywhere from 9 to 12 months.
- Choose the Right Practitioner
The most important aspect of getting your lips injected is finding the right practitioner for the job. The last thing you want is to spend hundreds of euros for a botched injection procedure.
A quality practitioner will give you the results you want and your lips will look perfect without looking like you’ve gotten a ton of work done on them.
