Living in the Los Angeles area you have probably seen the photos of many celebrities that are taking part in getting lip fillers. The trend has caught on in recent years and you might see your friends getting fillers done as well. If you are curious about filler its best to educate yourself on what they are before going through will getting any injections done. The modern fillers used in today’s lip injecting include a substance that is normally found in the human body, hyaluronic acid or HA for short. It’s an interesting substance because Hyaluronic acid can hold up to one thousand times its own weight in water.
If you’re worried that you have never heard of HA before you can look in your medicine cabinet for any creams or beauty products and there is a very good chance you’ll find the term listed on the ingredients label. However the HA you find in creams and lotions can only do so much. HA in lotions isn’t able to penetrate the skin the way that the lotion company may have you believe. Due to this, its best to have HA injected to benefit from its full effects. One of the great thing about HA is that it breaks down over time. Lip injections that use HA mean that you can try out the look of fillers without the fear of it being permanent.
These fillers aren’t just used to five you plump and perky lips but can also be used to fill in lines on your face. It can be used to temporarily eradicate the lines around your mouth, fill out any wrinkles in your skin and add or restore volume to your cheeks. One of the major benefits of using HA over silicone lip injection is that if there is a reaction from the use of HA an different injection can be made that reverse the effects and dissolves the HA in your skin. This may make you wonder if fillers are actually safe. Just like with any cosmetic procedure there are risks but the biggest one that you want to be aware of is where you are getting your lip fillers done. You shouldn’t risk getting it done at a spa or makeup studio unless it is being performed by a registered doctor who understands the effects and is able to provide you with medical care if anything goes wrong. Before getting injections you should be able to see what they are going to be injecting into you. This means they should be open and willing to unbox or show you the product before injecting it.
You might be wondering if these injections are painful. It shouldn’t be. To give a little perspective, the pain will depend on your tolerance left but also will heavily be affected by the person administering the injection. It should feel like small pinpricks with about as much pain as tweezing your brows. The biggest thing you should be concerned about is who is administering the injections.
