Inflated lips are becoming increasingly popular, especially when celebrities have begun undergoing procedures to have them. Some people have been wondering just how the whole treatment works and how it feels to have lip fillers. This article sheds light on exactly how lip fillers work and how it feels.
Before the treatment itself, a numbing cream is applied to the lips and left to set for about 5 – 10 minutes. The cream is to numb the lips so you won’t feel any pain as the filler is being injected into your lips.
The treatment itself
Juvederm, one of the most popular injectable lip filler, is used by most people. A 1ml syringe of this Juvederm is enough; however, it is not administered at once. The whole 1ml is injected into the lips in about 8 – 10 injections, and the entire process lasts about 10 minutes. Even with the numbing cream, it can still be quite painful and expect to bleed as well.
What happens afterwards?
Right away, you feel the filler in your lips, and you feel your lips being full or plump. Everyone has different lips, so the results are not precisely the same. However, you can expect your lips to swell up and become solid right away. Your lips are still numb by the way, so you can safely massage any lumps you may feel in them with your thumb and forefinger without feeling any pain. Expect a lot of pain for about 12 hours when the effect of the numbing cream wears off. People who have thinner lips should expect more filler than those who do not have thin lips. The more filler treatment is used, the more plump your lips will be.
Furthermore, some people have noticed some reactions like dry, sore or cracked lips, but this also depends on the state of a person’s lips before the treatment. Some people also reported having bruises after the treatment. However, you should note that this has no negative effect on the treatment and will disappear after a while. If you have never had a lip filler treatment done before, you might feel self-conscious with the swelling days after the treatment, but with time you get used to it. For a more natural look, it is advised that you wear lipstick to cover up the bruises, and you can also wear lip liner to define your new lips.
Months after the treatment, you will still be able to feel the filler in your lips. This is the point where you get to enjoy the fullness and plump lips you have on now. You can top up the filler with half an ml of Juvedermevery 6 months to maintain the look.
Cost of lip fillers treatment
Getting a lip filler treatment can be quite expensive. Prices seem to start from £300 in most places, showing how expensive the treatment is. However, you can still get good treatment at a slightly cheaper rate if you conduct your search correctly.
