So many people I know have lip fillers and they look amazing... I have always been tempted but been worried about the pain and ending up with a trout pout. Here are some FAQs incase, like me, you have also been considering them!


What are lip fillers and are they worth it?

The perfect pout has been modeled by the likes of Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, and in more recent years, Kylie Jenner. Sometimes, an artsy lipstick that is supposed to create the illusion of plump, fuller lips just doesn’t quite do the trick. With the quest for the perfect set of plumped-up lips on the rise, lip fillers have become an increasingly popular way of achieving this beauty standard.

Below, I have compiled a list of frequently asked questions and answers regarding lip fillers:


What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers are an injection of hyaluroic acid (HA), a chemical that the human body naturally produces. However, when injected, hyaluroic acid works to volumize the soft tissue in our skin, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles.

Lip fillers are far from a permanent solution to our thin lip problems, however. The hyaluroic acid, which is injected slowly, breaks down over a period of months in the skin, meaning that lip fillers need to be topped up every few months. However, this all depends upon how quickly your body individually breaks down the product injected. Lip Fillers London suggests that lip fillers take approximately 0-24 hours for your lip fillers to take full effect depending on how you react to it.


Are there any health risks with lip fillers?

As with any procedure, there is always a small percentage that something could go wrong with the treatment. However, lip fillers have a relatively low percentage of going wrong as a result of the easy fixing process. If something does go wrong during the procedure – for example, the filler being injected into the wrong area – another injection can be inserted below the skin, which acts as a dissolver of lip fillers. This means that any mistakes made during, or even after, the procedure can be easily reversed with the help of a qualified professional.


Do lip filler injections hurt?

As with any procedure, there can be a little pain involved. However, lip fillers are almost always accompanied by numbing cream, which completely numbs the areas in which the needles will be inserted. Some people will experience a certain amount of pain after the injections occur – as a result of the swelling – however, the procedure is supposed to be relatively painless.

The only feeling during the procedure is the actual product moving underneath the skin of your lips- this is considered an odd sensation more so than a painful one.


Will I see the results of my lip fillers right away?

As a result of their quick application, the results of lip fillers can be seen straight away. However, as it is an invasive procedure, lip fillers can result in swelling for 24 to almost 48 hours later, and even up to 3 days later in some cases. During this period, an ice pack should be administered in order to reduce the swelling in the area and to produce the best results from your lip fillers.

There is always more information available regarding lip fillers if you need more reassurance, as they have become such a popular beauty choice recently.
