6 Common Lip Filler Fears

dermal filling

Lip filler has become extremely popular in the past few years. It’s a great way to quickly improve your appearance without the need for major surgery. However, many people will delay undergoing lip filler treatments out of fear.

We’re going to dispel a few common fears in this guide, which should help you make a more informed choice as to whether lip fillers are right for you.

1. Lip Fillers Hurt

As a general rule, most people who get lip injections do find that there is a small amount of discomfort or pain. It will rarely cause serious pain. Many people describe the sensation as a pinch, though the intensity of this feeling will vary from person to person.

If you want to get lip fillers, the pain shouldn’t put you off as it’s only momentary. A numbing cream or local anaesthetic can be applied to minimise any discomfort. However, many people get lip fillers without any numbing cream or local anaesthetic, as the procedure is generally well-tolerated and not as painful as many fear.

2. Lip Fillers Look Unnatural

This is a very common misconception. The outcome of your lip filler treatment will be determined by what your lips looked like before and the skill of your practitioner.

If you would prefer a more natural outcome, then make sure you choose an injector who has plenty of experience producing natural-looking fillers. An experienced injector will also advise you on the right amount of filler to achieve your goals.

Using too much can make you look puffy and unnatural, as well as choosing the wrong type of filler. The placement of the product will also affect the result, so be sure to choose someone who knows what they’re doing. Book your free consultation to speak to one of our highly skilled lip injectors.

3. Lip Fillers Are Purely Cosmetic

Although it’s true that many people get their lips done to improve their features, there are other benefits. As well as increasing the size and volume of your lips, hyaluronic fillers can improve lip hydration. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, and it attracts water molecules.

So, if you suffer from chronically dry lips and constantly need to reapply balms, you may benefit from the moisture-retaining qualities of lip fillers.

4. Lip Fillers Will Make My Lips Sag

This is a misconception. When administered by a skilled professional, lip fillers enhance the natural shape and volume of your lips without causing long-term damage. The hyaluronic acid used in most fillers is a substance naturally found in the body, which means it integrates with your tissue.

Over time, the filler gradually breaks down and is safely absorbed by the body, leaving no trace behind. Properly done, lip fillers maintain the natural structure of your lips, and they remain firm and youthful, even after the filler has worn off.

5. Lip Fillers Are Dangerous

When performed by a qualified and experienced professional, lip fillers are a safe and effective way to enhance your lip volume and overall appearance. The most commonly used fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which minimises the risk of adverse reactions.

The procedures are carried out in a controlled, sterile environment with strict adherence to safety protocols. Side effects are generally mild and temporary, such as slight swelling or bruising.

By choosing Lumineux Aesthetics to administer your filler and following our aftercare instructions, you can safely enjoy the benefits of lip fillers without any worries.

6. Lip Fillers Are Permanent & Unremovable

Most of the effects from lip fillers are temporary, typically lasting six to twelve months. This is because most lip fillers use hyaluronic acid, which is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body over time.

If you’re unhappy with the results or wish to reverse the procedure sooner, a trained professional can use an enzyme called hyaluronidase to dissolve the filler quickly and safely.

This flexibility allows you to make adjustments or return to your natural look without the long-term commitment. If you are looking to reduce the size of your lip filler or remove it completely, we offer lip filler dissolving at Lumineux Aesthetics.
