Full, beautiful lips are almost always in vogue, which means there are more choices than ever for getting this desirable look nowadays. One of the popular choices is the Botox lip flip, although despite the increased media interest this treatment has received as an alternative to traditional lip injections, it might not be exactly the right choice for you. The most important thing you need to know about getting a lip filler is what to do after the treatment. After you’ve had your injections, the key thing is to maintain your beautiful new look. This means looking after your skin with quality aftercare.
There are a few different options available for after you’ve had your lip fillers. If you’ve had the same procedure done on your lips twice previously then it’s worth enquiring with your cosmetic surgeon about an advancement on your initial treatment. Alternatively, if your doctor has recommended a specific hyaluronic acid dermal filler for your first time then you may want to stick with your doctor’s suggestion. A hyaluronic acid lip filler involves the injection of a hyaluronic acid based filler directly under your vermillion border to create a fuller, more voluminous lip, without ending up with that “ducky” appearance.
As with all procedures involving injections of any material, there is always some risk involved. The main risk of getting a lip filler is that it can cause a mild form of allergic reaction. Some of the substances used for the injections can cause swelling or redness of the skin, although this often goes away within a few days. Pain or irritation is usually the most serious side effect. This is why it is important to find a reputable clinic, like SkinGenity medical spa, so you can avoid all these possible risks and side effects.
There are various ways that lip fillers can be injected, depending on what results you’re looking for and what part of the body they will be inserted into. For example, the most common type of lip filler for the lips is actually saline. Saline is water-based and is generally safe for general use. However, if you have allergies or a pacemaker or diabetes then you may want to consider using a different material, such as hyaluronic acid dermal filler.
Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers are incredibly popular and are used more than any other dermal filler to not only fill in the lips, but fill in lines, wrinkles, and folds in an aging face, as well as fill in hollowness that can be found under the eyes and in the cheeks due to loss of volume in that face. While not all dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based, hyaluronic acid based fillers are often more popular for facial fillers because they are dissolvable, should someone end up with results that they would like to reverse. Aside from hyaluronic acid based fillers, there are also two other dermal fillers that are not hyaluronic acid based that are commonly used, called Radiesse, which is made of calcium hydroxyapatite, and Sculptra, which is made of Poly-L-lactic acid. These two dermal fillers can be used in various areas of the face and body, also commonly used as a non surgical butt lift option if deemed appropriate by the administering professional.
Another common choice for injections is the cadaver-filled option. These are made up of a small amount of animal fat or tissue taken from the body of a deceased person. While this isn’t used quite as often as other fillers due to the ethical issues of harvesting bodies, it can still be a good choice if your lips need attention but you aren’t trying to use a banned substance, such as silicone gel.
Finally, there is the option of Botox. This is a very popular choice for both cosmetic and medical procedures and it has become one of the most commonly prescribed treatments for both lower face lift and frown lines. Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles so that they become immobilized. As a result, they cannot contract in the area where they have been injected. The effect lasts for several months, after which you will need another application.
Botox is often used as a very mild lip enhancement, which is called a lip flip. A lip flip works through the injection of Botox right above the lip which creates a lifting effect, making the upper lip flip upward, which many people like. This procedure is common for someone who wants a more subtle upper lip modification, or for people who have never gotten anything done and want to start small. Others actually combine lip fillers with a lip flip for an exaggerated lip flip.
Botox can be used for both cosmetic and medical reasons. However, it must be used very carefully and it must be repeated regularly because it tends to wear off after just a couple of applications.
It can be tricky to find the perfect option for your lips. Not only do you need to figure out what the appropriate dermal filler is for you to use, but there are also a ton of injection techniques that can be used to create a certain look. While you may want to look them up and see which injection technique would suit you best, this is something that is better left to your injector themselves, as they ultimately know what injection technique works best on different sorts of lips.
Your job as a patient and to keep yourself safe and with good results, is to do your research on your injector. Start off with researching all the best medical spas in your area. After that, explore them in depth by looking into their websites. Here you can find their before and after photos, as well as photos of the clinic itself. Be sure to confirm that the clinic is clean and that you like the before and after photos. In addition, you want to look into the qualifications of your injector. Where did they go to school? What kind of training do they have? Are they a nurse or a board certified plastic surgeon? All of these factors are important in deciding if this person is worthy of injecting your lips.
Also be sure to look at reviews. If you do your research and take these important steps, then you will be well on your way to get your perfect pout!
