Having fuller lips is one of the most popular trends right now in our industry. By using a filler like Restylane, we can add volume to your lips to give you that sexier pout that will make you feel better in your skin. But, if you are like many people, you may be hesitant because you don’t want to look like a “Real Housewife”. To help you land on a decision about fillers that’s right for you, let’s debunk a few common myths about them.
The good news about filler is that it shouldn’t make you look like you had work done unless you want it to. Here at our office, Dr. Derek Steinbacher uses a variety of techniques to ensure that your lip fillers look as natural as possible. During your consultation, Dr. Steinbacher will go over the results that you want and then try to mimic them so that you get exactly what you want.
If you add a lot of volume to your lips all at once, people will probably be able to tell. But, if Dr. Steinbacher makes a few injections around your lips to make them slightly fuller, then nobody even has to notice. One thing we do tell our patients though is that your lips may be swollen for up to a week after you get injections depending on how your body reacts to them.
Not everybody has to be Kylie Jenner to justify getting lip injections. Although fillers are great at adding volume to your lips, they can also be used to treat things like asymmetry, enhance your cupid’s bow, or add a little bit more definition that you’ve wanted to have.
Lip fillers are one of those things that are practically magic. The best thing about them is that they not only work, but they will give you immediate results.
