What to Think about before You Have Face and Lip Fillers?

Sep 27, 2021

Are you thinking about getting face or lip filler? This is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures among men and women of various age categories. What should you know before you visit the doctor? What should you ask? What should you prepare yourself for?

The success of your final results in many terms depend on your awareness of the procedure, its effects, and risks. So let us figure out the main points to consider before you have your fillers done.

Why Do I Want to Get Dermal Fillers Injections?

Before plastic surgery, the doctor always assigns the patient to have a consultation with a psychologist to make sure the desire to change appearance is not caused by any mental deviations, rejection of oneself, internal complexes, or more serious disorders, as in this case. No surgical improvement can help to accept and love oneself. Вissatisfaction with one’s own appearance will only entail a chain of surgeries and an even stronger sense of one’s own imperfection.

There is no need to go to a psychic doctor before you decide to get lip filler or any other cosmetic injection, but it will be good if you sit with yourself and consider why you want or need it. As hyaluronic acid fillers are capable of miracles (eliminating wrinkles and folds, enlarging lips, highlighting cheekbones, and even straitening the nose), you should clearly understand whether you really have indications to get the treatment or it is just your inner lack of confidence or a desire imposed by the media and advertisement.

Is it Safe to Have Face and Lip Fillers?

Well, if you are planning on doing face or lip injections, you must weigh the pros and cons. First of all, you should check whether you are a perfect candidate for filler treatment. For this, you should have no points from the list of contraindications:

  • minor age (patients over 60 cannot have hyaluronic acid injections as they are ineffective for them)
  • pregnancy
  • lactation period
  • blood clotting disorders
  • inflammation
  • dermal infection diseases
  • flu and ARVI
  • hypersensitivity to any of the filler’s components
  • immune system disorders

If nothing from the above is about you, congratulations! You can consider getting a lip or face fillers. But this is not all to think about. Is this cosmetic procedure itself safe? Any side effects?

The answer is yes. Face or lip injections are likely to be accompanied by certain reactions from the side of the body:

  • pain at the injection site
  • redness
  • swelling
  • bruising
  • sensitivity
  • discoloration of the skin tissues
  • tenderness
  • infection
  • tissues inflammation

Everything is individual, but it is very important to find a qualified specialist who will manage the procedure carefully and minimize the manifestation of skin reactions at all stages. So do not think of saving money here as you may pay a much higher price if you entrust your skin to a charlatan.

What Results Can I Expect After the Injections of Hyaluronic Acid?

Many people go to cosmetologists after they saw some impressive pictures on Instagram and expect they can get the same. Some even come with prepared collages and say: “Can you do like this?” Be realistic here, and study the possibilities of the face and lip fillers treatment properly. So, what can you improve with the help of hyaluronic acid?

Rejuvenation – if the aim is to get rid of the signs of natural aging, hyaluronic type of filler can promise you a lot:

  • elimination of wrinkles and folds of various depth: wrinkles on the forehead, nasolabial folds, fine lines in the periorbital area, marionette lines;
  • loss of volume in the dermal tissues: restoring the natural volume of the lips, cheeks, chin, temples;
  • improving the skin turgor;
  • increasing skin elasticity and firmness;
  • evening of the relief;
  • hydration;
  • improving complexion;
  • minimizing scars, post-acne marks, and pigmentation spots.

Face modeling – treatments with hyaluronic acid can also help to shape and/or reshape your facial features:

  • lips – lips enlargement, defining the contours, correction of the asymmetry and volume disproportion;
  • cheeks – adding volume, defining;
  • cheekbones – defining;
  • chin – enlargement and defining;
  • jawline – defining
  • nose – straitening, changing the nose tip

As you may see, the possibilities of dermal fillers are quite impressive, but the final result depends on many factors: your age, condition of your skin, lifestyle, habits, your health, and so. Think of what you expect after the treatment and discuss your expectations with the doctor to form an adequate picture of what is possible and what is not possible to achieve, and why. It will save you from disappointment.

What Brand of Dermal Fillers Should I Choose to Get Perfect Results?

The choice of the product is as essential as the choice of a doctor. The market offers a great variety of dermal gels from American, European, and Asian manufacturers. Here are some of the most popular:

juvederm-logo

belotero-logo

restylane-logo

saypha-logo

profhilo-logo

teosyal-logo

Each of these brands has its benefits. They differ in the formulation of hyaluronic acid used in the filler, density of the gel, fillers cost, and effects you can achieve with their help. To make the correct choice, we advise you to consult with a specialist who will recommend dermal filler, basing on the peculiarities and needs of your skin, as well as the results you want to get.

How often Should I Repeat the Injection of Hyaluronic Fillers?

Treatment with face or lip fillers is not permanent. As hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide, metabolism breaks its molecules and uses it for building collagen and elastin, which are so essential for keeping the skin firm and elastic, thus, young and beautiful.

Depending on the type of filler used, the time they last in the dermal tissue may vary from 6 to 24 months. It is explained by the various level of gel density. Thus, lip fillers and gels for the area under the eyes may be light, while the gels indicated for face sculpting and define the cheeks and jawline are dense and tough.

It also depends on the amount of filler injected – the bigger the dose, the longer organism will take to digest it.

So, in the case of lip fillers, you will need to schedule a repeated visit to a cosmetologist in 6-9 months. Ask the doctor how much approximately your results will last.

Who Will Perform the Procedure with Fillers for Me?

Any brand of dermal fillers insists that the procedure with dermal gels can be performed only by a qualified and certified healthcare provider (cosmetologist or dermatologist) who has taken special training. In no way do face or lip injections by yourself. It can give unexpected results, be health- and life-threatening.

Take time to check various clinics and doctors, study the reviews, take personal consultations, and entrust your appearance just to the best specialist.

How to Prepare Before the Treatment with Fillers?

Choosing the right doctor for getting lip or face fillers is just half of success. There are lots of things that depend on the patient as well. So, you should think of what you can and should do to help your body undergo the procedure with minimal risks.

So, before the treatment with hyaluronic fillers, you should:

  • not take any alcoholic beverages for 24 hours;
  • avoid laser, peeling, and hair-removal procedures on the area for injection for 14 days;
  • avoid sunbathing, sauna, solarium, and other heating procedures on the area for injection for 14 days;
  • not take any blood thinner as well as dietary supplements such as Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Retinol, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, etc.

To Sum Up

Fillers are a wonderful intention of modern cosmetology, which help so many people preserve the youth and get a marvelous natural look. However, there are many of those who are dissatisfied with the procedure. In most cases, it happened because of their unrealistic expectations, elementary ignorance, and misunderstanding of hyaluronic acid, as well as incompetent doctors.
