Everything You Need To Know About Lip Fillers

Ever dreamed about having plump and voluminous lips? You’re not alone! Thanks to celebrity culture and the growing popularity of cosmetic procedures around the world, people are more open to enhance certain parts of their face and body than ever before.

Lip fillers fall under a class of injectables that help restore the volume in your lips so they look plumper and fuller. If this is a treatment you’re currently looking into getting, we’ve compiled everything you need to know the procedure before you book your first appointment.

Everything You Need To Know About Lip Fillers

It’s Very Popular

The rise of plastic surgery is no secret, and the same can be said for lip fillers. Some like to attribute it to the “Kylie Jenner effect” or the growing influence of social media. Whatever the case may be, clinics across North America are seeing a growing increase in people booking this treatment. According to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the use of fillers in the United States soared from 1.8 million procedures in 2010 to 2.6 million in 2016. So if you’ve ever been hesitant about getting fillers done but worried it was a procedure reserved for celebrities, think again! There are probably multiple people in your own life that have gotten the treatment for it, but you just haven’t realized it!

Little Recovery Time

Convenience is the name of the game, and what a lot of people love about fillers is just how little downtime it requires to recover from it. The procedure itself takes just under half an hour to do, which makes it convenient to schedule during your lunch break or in between work meetings. Once the treatment is over, patients may experience some swelling, bruising or redness at the injection sites but that typically resolves itself within a couple hours or days. Once the appointment is over, patients are free to go about their day as normal.

Results Last For A Long Time

There are currently a few fillers on the market, but the team at McLean Clinic take pride in only using the latest and best treatments for their patients. For lip fillers, they use Juvederm which is a hyaluronic acid based filler, a substance that’s already found inside the body. Besides giving that fullness to your lips, this filler can also be used on other areas of your face to help reverse signs of aging. Juvederm is best known for its long-lasting results which is why it’s a favourite amongst both patients and clinics. After just one treatment, patients can see results last anywhere between 6 months to 1 year, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the material.

Quick And Easy Procedure

As mentioned earlier, getting lip fillers done is pretty easy-peasy! Even for those with the busiest schedules can find time to sneak in a treatment. Each session lasts anywhere between 15-20 minutes, so patients are in and out in no time.

The Treatment Is Painless

Quick AND painless! In the cosmetic world, that’s music to the patient’s ears. Typically during the appointment, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area where the fillers will be injected into to help eliminate any potential discomfort. Once enough time has passed for the numbing cream to settle, while the filler is being injected all the patient feels are slight pinches where the cannula is being inserted.

Results Look Natural

When it comes to lip fillers, the number one concern patients have is that their lips will look unnatural or look like they have permanent “duck face”. Results like this typically happen when patients got to inexperienced surgeons who apply too much filler into the treatment area. When you go to experienced places like McLean Clinic, they will make sure results will not only suit your current facial proportions but also align with the results you’re looking for.

Little Risk Involved

As you can see, besides helping patients achieve that enviable pout, getting lip fillers is an easy and painless treatment. For these reasons and more, it’s no surprise to those in the industry that this treatment is getting more and more popular as time moves on.

With that said, like any cosmetic treatment available in the market today, there are still risks involved. In the case of lip fillers, this includes prolonged swelling, bruising or redness on the injection sites. Thankfully, this can easily be treated by applying ice packs on the treatment areas.

Even in the worst case scenario, let’s say you don’t like your lip fillers. Maybe you decided that having that fuller pout just doesn’t suit you the way you thought it would. If this happens to you, thankfully you don’t have to wait 1 or 2 years following the treatment for the filler to dissolve naturally within your body. The best part about Juvederm lip fillers is that they can easily be dissolved to restore the lips natural shape. So just in case you’re not loving the look, you can always go back to what nature gave you. So keeping that in mind as well as the minimal side effects involved with getting the treatment done, there’s really minimal risk involved in getting lip fillers. So, what are you waiting for?

If you have any additional questions that haven’t been answered here, feel free to book a consultation with the McLean Clinic today. They’ll be happy to give you a full rundown on everything you need to know about lip fillers and get you one step closer towards getting the pout you’ve always wanted.
