Lip fillers 101: What to expect during a lip filler procedure
Getting lip fillers for the first time…..Or contemplating to get it done, here’s a complete guide to the entire lip filler procedure.
Plump, voluminous and juicy lips are considered sexy and divine. A simple procedure like lip fillers can give you the desired lips.
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are injection syringes made of collagen or hyaluronic acid and are meant to be injected into the lips. The number of lip injections have been on the rise since the past few years. The reason: a simple lunchtime procedure with no downtime can literally transform the way you look. And the results are long lasting as well.
What does an ideal lip look like?
An ideal lip should be voluminous with well defined cupid’s bow and philtrum. Ideally, the upper lip is slightly projected compared to the lower lip and the lower lip is slightly bigger than the upper lip. The ratio of upper to lower lip is 1:1.6. However, with celebrities like Priyanka Chopra endorsing a perfect pout, a 1:1 lip proportion is also on the rise. An ideal lip is the type that suits your facial proportion.
What are the different types of lip fillers available in the market?
At Influennz, we have 5 types of fillers for lips specifically, all of them are by juvederm company. Juvederm is a brand for hyaluronic based dermal fillers and here at Influennz we use the range of products by Juvederm only. For lips, the various fillers that can be used are volite, volbella, volift,ultraplus xc and ultra xc respectively. Now all these fillers differ in their cohesivity, longevity and hydration that it causes to your lips. Which fillers will be chosen for your lips will depend upon the kind of lips you have and the desired results.
Lip fillers vs lip plumpers?
These days beauty apps are flooded with various lip plumpers and lip injections all promising to “plump” your lips. They have irritant particles that temporarily plump your lips but not as much as a lip filler. Lip fillers are the only permanent method to plump your lips.
What is the actual procedure of lip filler like?
So for every patient out here at Influennz, we apply a numbing cream to make the procedure comfortable. Also, the procedures are done under complete aseptic precautions and COVID protocols. The filler procedure is done by Dr Geetika Srivastava who is an AIIMS passed out dermatologist. The entire procedure can take upto 60 minutes or so.
What to expect after a lip filler procedure?
- You might expect some swelling for the first 48 hours which settles by the end of the week
- Bruising can happen but icing will not only minimise swelling but bruising as well. You can take Arnica drops 3 to 4 times a day to expedite the process of healing.
What is After care?
Aftercare is pretty simple
- No hot/cold beverages for 3 hours. This is because your lips are numb and you might get burned with the hot liquid
- No makeup for 24 hours
- No blowing/kissing for 48-72 hours as it might displace the filler
- No parlour procedures/steam/sauna/massages for a week
How soon will you see the results of lip fillers?
That is the beauty of lip fillers. You can get the results instantly. Right on the table. You can leave the doctor’s office with a plumper and poutier lip and nobody will be able to make out you have got anything done.
How long does the lip filler last?
Depending upon the brand and type of filler material and the doctor’s technique, a lip filler can last from 12-24 months. However, if you are a smoker, your fillers will dissolve faster than usual. This is because smoking contains hyaluronidase that has the ability to dissolve lip fillers.
Is the lip filler procedure painful?
Lips are one of the most sensitive and sensual part of your face. Yet, the procedure of lip filler does not hurt at all. This is because of the three-tiered anaesthesia that is given to you.
- Firstly, a numbing cream is applied to numb the skin.
- Secondly, the lip filler syringe has lignocaine in it which is a type of numbing anaesthesia
- Thirdly, throughout the procedure, a vibrating tool is used to further minimise the pain.
Most clients never complain of pain during or after the procedure.
Who are the ideal candidates for a lip filler procedure?
Almost anybody can opt for a lip filler procedure. The end result can be a sexy and pouty lip or a soft and subtle lip. Make sure you make your doctor understand what you want so that your results are in alignment with your desires.
