Fillers can be used in a number of places, like cheeks, nose and lips. In the past 5 years, there has been an increase in plumping up the pout. Many are following the trends of delectably filled lips like Kylie Jenner and Angelina Jolie.

Before rushing into it, know that lip fillers may not result in the most natural-looking set of lips. Here’s some insider tips to help you avoid getting a botched filler job.

Preparation

If you have super thin lips and want to go from nothing to fish lips all at one go, the likelihood of having your lips overfilled is probably 100%. You do not want to have overfilled lips,as they tend to give a cosmetically made/ botched appearance. The lips are also easily noticeable after the procedure, so unless you want to see an immediate difference, it is best to have a little than too much.

Which Filler Matters

It makes a difference which types of fillers are being used, we want to create a luscious-looking and smooth textured lip. In order to avoid lumps and bumps, it’s important to choose FDA and HSA-approved fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Boletero. Be wary of unlicensed injectors such as underground beauty parlous, which may not have undergone rigorous testing. Products that have not undergone testing may cause allergic or immunologic reactions that can lead to permanent disfiguration.

Don’t go all in

Patience, patience. Although Lip Fillers start to swell from the moment they are injected, the swelling will continue for the next 48 hours. It may not seem a lot when you leave the doctors, but don’t be disappointed yet. It would be best to wait for the swelling to settle before making further assessment. Most doctors do not inject more than 2 milliliters in one setting, to avoid overfilling. That being said, some may require a total of 3 or 4 to achieve good results.

It is not permanent

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are the safest option available at the moment; doctors prefer it because they give a natural effect, both in appearance and touch. Some may say that it is not worth doing because it is not permanent; however, hyaluronic acid fillers are the safest because they are not permanent! Also they can be easily dissolved if there is a change of heart or if there are problems such as lumps.

It can make a huge difference

Here’s an interesting thought to chew on: the brain’s ability to gauge whether something is beautiful or not, is hardwired. For the lips, the rough ratio of an ideal set of sexy lips should be approximately 1:2 (upper:lower), and the lower lip should make up just under 10% of the lower face. This can be seen with celebrities such as Kylie and Angelina Jolie who possess the perfect pout.
