Natural Lip Injections: Hyaluronic Acid Takes the Worry Out of Lip Injections
Imagine a woman, lets call her Karen, flipping through her Instagram feed. Pictures of dogs, cats, and other people’s kids fly by until she lands on Kylie Jenner. Look at those full, luscious lips. Karen chews on her own lips. They feel like they’re barely there.
Not one to balk at a little cosmetic surgery, Karen makes herself an appointment and she’s in and out on her lunch break. Her lips feel a little swollen after the procedure, but she’s sure it’s not far off from what Kylie feels. But the moment Karen steps back into her office, all eyes are on her – but not in a good way. The bathroom mirror reveals her lips look closer to Donald Duck’s than Kylie Jenner’s.
The worst part is, Karen’s lip injection was done with collagen, so there’s not a lot she can do to fix it.
Lip Specific Fillers Eliminate the Worst Case Scenario
This is the worst fear of anyone going through any aesthetic procedure: ‘what if I come out looking worse than before?’
But, new advances with lip-specific fillers, like Juvéderm Volbella Treatments, can lay rest to those fears. Gone are the days of permanent, lumpy collagen fillers that scream ‘I got my lips done.’ (and may cause others to scream). Today, most new fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid and a few are designed specifically for lip injections.
It sounds like something a shady comic book character would throw on his nemesis, but the truth is much less dramatic. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a completely natural substance that our body synthesizes for a variety of reasons – including:
- Coating cartilage
- Lubricating muscular tissue
- Aiding in tissue repair
The Benefits of Lip-Specific Fillers
Whether or not you’ve had your lips, or any other part of your body worked on, you have HA in your body, naturally. Because it’s natural, and naturally created by your body, it can be metabolized by your body, meaning it is completely safe to inject.
The fact is, after you get lip injections with HA, your body will metabolize the HA in your lips, slowly bringing your lips back to their previous shape. For HA, this may take up to 6 months. You may think you want permanent lip filler, but having the choice to get rid of your filler and have another go is important to getting the look you want. The good news is, HA injections have been shown to promote the secretion of extra HA in your lips, so after six months, you may find your lips are still a bit plumper than they used to be.
A good lip injection shouldn’t make your lips look like swollen sausages. Like any aesthetic procedure, a bad lip job will look worse than no lip job at all. Because newer, lip focused products use finer particles than old fillers, there is less chances of unsightly bumps and humps in your newly pumped lips.
Don’t Settle For Anything Less Than the Best
It’s your face, so never settle for yesterday’s procedures. Make sure you always arm yourself with knowledge before looking for any cosmetic procedures, so you can be sure you get the best treatments available to you.
But, whatever the treatment, the most important step is to always find a good doctor. With these new fillers, a bad lip job may not haunt you for life, but 6 months is a long time to deal with Donald Duck Lips. Don’t let a bad lip job sentence you to six months avoiding everyone you know, call Everyoung Medical Aesthetics Centre for plump lips you’ll want to show off.
