Four Things to Know Before Getting Lip Fillers

Have you been considering lip filler injections?

Before undergoing any cosmetic treatment, you’ll want to become familiar with the pros and cons of the treatment, as well as the treatment procedure itself. When it comes to lip injections, there are lots to know. From key points about proper preparation to how long lip fillers last, it’s crucial to fully understand this procedure before having it done.

Here are the top four things to know about lip injections at DermaClinic.


Preparation Is Key When It Comes to Lip Fillers


As with many beauty and aesthetic treatments, it’s important to properly prepare for your lip filler injection appointment. Exact preparation tips will vary from clinic to clinic, and it’s always important to follow the specific directions you receive from your clinician. 

Still, some basic rules of thumb go along with most preparation guidelines for the lip filler procedure:

During the procedure, you’ll be more prone to bleeding and possible bruising if you’ve used any kind of blood thinner. This means you need to avoid blood thinners such as painkillers like ibuprofen or aspirin, vitamin D, fish oil, and alcohol.


Watch Out for Flareups of Cold Sores


If you tend to experience cold sores, you’ll want to make sure that you properly medicate for a possible flareup before to your lip filler appointment. That’s because lip fillers can sometimes cause cold sores to come out of hiding.


Lip Fillers Aren’t As Expensive As You Think


Like many treatments, the price of lip fillers has gone down significantly in the last 10 years. This means that it’s a more attainable procedure for many individuals who are looking for fuller, sexier lips. Generally speaking, the cost of fillers is anywhere from $500 to $2000.


Lip Fillers Can Last Up to Six Months


Something important to note about lip filler injections is that most are not permanent. However, even temporary fillers are pretty close to permanent.

How long your temporary lip fillers last will actually depend upon you and your lips. For example, most people receive lip filler injections that last approximately six months. However, they may last longer for you. Of course, it’s also possible they might last a bit less than six months. 

The period that your lip fillers last will also vary from injection to injection. Most people who get regular fillers make standing biannual appointments (two appointments per year). Rescheduling is always an available option.


Lip Fillers Don’t Hurt


Think of the lip filler procedure like getting a minor dental procedure. You’ll need to get numbed just as you would at the dentist, but from then on, you won’t really be able to feel the area. The procedure itself will simply feel like a slight prick and a little bit of pressure. With ice and a little massage afterward, you’ll be good to go with little or no pain.
