Having lip injections performed today is almost as common as cosmetic treatments like having your hair colored. While it is an effective and safe way to improve your appearance, it is still a medical treatment. Here are some things that you should know about lip injections.
Know the Facts
We highly recommend hyaluronic acid fillers. This is a sugar derivative that is naturally found in the human body. The amazing thing about this substance is that it is able to hold onto a lot of water. Since it has this ability, it makes a perfect ingredient in products that are designed to hydrate and provide volume to the skin. It will provide results that look natural, so you do not need to worry about exaggerated lips. And it will dissolve over time, which means that if you do not like it, you are not stuck with it. However, if you do like the volume that you enjoyed, you can return for touch up treatments.
You may be wondering if the filler can be removed if you do not like the way that you look with fuller lips. The first thing that you should know is that we do all that we can in order to be sure that our clients feel happy with the results they receive from our treatments. This means that we take time to understand their goals and then match a treatment that is right for them. Just in case you do not like your results, though, our doctor will be able to inject an eraser enzyme into your lips where the hyaluronic acid was injected. This is going to accelerate the breakdown of the product.
What Kind of Results Should You Expect?
When cosmetic treatments first started getting popular a couple of decades ago, individuals who used the treatments were often looking for obvious results. Nowadays, most people want something that is more subtle.
When you walk away from your appointment with us, you should not expect to have giant lips. We often schedule multiple treatment sessions with lip injections for our clients. The idea is to slowly increase the size of the lips over time. It allows the lips to adapt to the hyaluronic acid and to settle. Then you will be able to determine how much more of the product should be injected.
