Every woman wants luscious lips but not every woman is lucky enough to be born with a perfect pout. Sure, you can fake it with lip liner drawn over, but that only goes so far. If you want a fuller set of lips, a la Kylie Jenner, then you might want to think about getting lip injections. But before you go out and get the procedure done, here are a few things you should know about them first:
1. Doctors use their preferred formula
Not every doctor uses the same formula for lip injections and they each have a favorite they prefer to use on patients. But many agree that the most natural temporary filler is a hyaluronic acid like Restylane.
2. Cost varies
Like many medical procedures, the cost can vary from $500 all the way up to $2,000 depending on the doctor you go to and the formal they use, as well as the region you currently live in.
3. You can get rid of the injection
If you don’t like how your lips look, you can completely get rid of the fillers since it’s not a permanent solution for bigger lips. Your doctor can simply inject an erase into your pout that will dissolve the filler in a few minutes and get you back to your normal lips.
4. They last up to six months
Since it is a temporary solution, you can expect lip injection fillers to last anywhere from four to six months. But if you’re fairly thin, your body will metabolize the filler formula a lot faster so your injections won’t last as long as you might want, causing you to see your doctor a lot faster if you want more.
5. Immediate results
Once you get the injection fillers into your pout, you’ll see results almost immediately. Your lips will be swollen in the beginning, but you’ll see the effects fast. But it’s best that you give your lips at least a full day to settle so that the swelling calms down to see how they really turned out.
