One of the quickest and easiest ways to subtly elevate your appearance is lip injections with facial fillers such as JUVÉDERM®. Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach men and women frequently visit our Torrance med spa for great results, and there are a few key tips we share with them to make sure they get exactly what they’re looking for.
Here are a few ways you can make sure you get lip injection results you truly love.
Draw inspiration from your own best self, not from other people.
Celebrities and friends are common sources of inspiration for lip injection results, but it’s best to steer clear of trying to replicate another person’s features exactly. Keep in mind that fillers won’t completely reshape your lips to look like someone else’s but will rather add volume to accentuate your existing shape.
If your lips have lost volume due to aging, bringing in a photo of your younger self will give your provider a great idea of the look you’re going for. Photos help your injector understand how volume was distributed in your lips when you were younger and where it needs to be replaced now.
Choose a provider you can trust.
Researching potential injectors and verifying their credentials is always wise. Your face isn’t something you want to cut corners on. Reading real patient reviews can also give you a great idea of the injector’s capabilities and approach so you can make sure it’s in line with the results you want.
Be guided by quality and credentials, not by price. Everyone loves a deal, but exceptionally low prices often signal an inexperienced injector or counterfeit products. Learn more in our previous blog post.
Have an honest conversation.
Be clear about the look you would like to achieve, and speak up about what you want out of your treatment. Your provider can only make your aesthetic goals a reality if you clearly communicate those goals.
Don’t hesitate to ask questions about everything from the treatment experience to the lifespan of your results to your filler formulation options. A licensed provider is an invaluable source of information about cosmetic procedures and how they relate to your features and goals.
Follow your aftercare instructions.
Taking great care of your lips in the first couple of days after your injections will set the stage for months of attractive results. Gently applying cold compresses to reduce swelling and avoiding strenuous exercise for the first day or 2 is key.
