4 Important Facts to Know before Getting Lip Fillers
In the world of cosmetic dermatology, injectable dermal fillers are by far some of the most highly in demand, and popular skincare treatments around – and for good reason! Not only are dermal fillers, like Restylane simply more effective than most other treatments, but they are also the most versatile option for a number of different issues. Whether it might be cosmetic correction or aesthetic enhancement Restylane injections are the most widely chosen treatments. These filler options use a base of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring compound created within the body to provide the skin hydration, and a naturally restorative, healing force. Considering this, as the top black dermatologist Brooklyn has to offer, Dr. Jackson of Jackson Dermatology, recommends Restylane dermal fillers for everything from facial volume loss issues like wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds, to scar treatment, blemish removal and even lip injections. The use of hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers has revolutionized the way women (and even some men) are able to enhance the look, feel, size, and shape of their lips! And depending upon the type of results you are seeking, and the current condition of your lips, the aesthetic experts at Jackson Dermatology can recommend the use of both Restylane injections or Juvéderm lip injections offer their own unique specialties. Despite their popularity, little to none is truly known about how dermal fillers function in treating the lips. Before you consider Restylane injections, Juvéderm, or dermal lip filler, it is important to educate yourself as much as possible on a few key factors.
· Decide Which Filler is Right for You
The two best options for lip fillers, by far, are Restylane and Juvéderm – as these are the two highest qualities, hyaluronic acid-based fillers – as well as a favorite for Dr. Jackson, the top black dermatologist Brooklyn has in practice. While they both offer quite similar results, and are both effective, there are a few slight differences to be aware of. When it comes to Restylane injections, patients can expect a look that appears smooth and more natural, with a look that is far less enhanced – but it may not provide the plumpness and volume you seek. When it comes to Juvéderm lip injections, they provide a look that is far plumper and more voluminous, and slightly enhanced.
· Don’t Go Too Big the First Time
One of the most important things to realize is that you can always have more fillers put in. This means that it is important not to go too big initially, as you may not like the results you get or they may appear to be way too enhanced and way bigger than you wanted. However, it is far easier to get less filler injected the first time, and always go back and get more than vice versa. According to Dr. Jackson, the top black dermatologist Brooklyn has in practice, patients might want to go half as large as they originally thought, and if they do not like the appearance, they might use more on their next session.
· Fast, Instant Results
Considering how fast of a treatment this might be, patients and doctors will often refer to this as a lunchtime procedure as you can have it done on your lunch break from work. While your appointment might take 30 minutes to an hour, your results will appear almost instantly. However, some swelling will cover up the true results, after 2-3 days, the swelling goes down, and you will be able to gently massage your lips into place and smooth them out.
· Know the Risks
Lip fillers are relatively safe and side effect-free, and patients rarely have many issues. But they are definitely possible. Some patients will experience allergic reactions, and it could possibly lead to an injection or other bacterial issues. For those who are prone to cold sores, lip fillers are known to trigger them.
