Lip Fillers, Answering The Most Frequently Asked Questions


Would you have lip filler treatment? This was something which I had never really considered until a friend of mine had it done a couple of years ago. I loved the results and how she looked afterwards and so I decided that I would give it a go myself. In terms of treatment for lip fillers Cardiff has an abundance of options and so after finding the best one for me, I signed up and had the procedure. I love how my lips looked after this and I will definitely be going back again in the near-future. There can be a lot of incorrect information online about lip fillers and so here are some real answers to the FAQs around filler treatments. 


How Does it Work?


Basically you can expect a small injection into various parts of your lips and the solution which is injected is usually a made up of hyaluronic acid which is naturally produced by your body, this is a great hydrator and and gives the appearance of fuller lips. The acid is gradually broken down by the body after a couple of months and your lips will return to normal. 


What Results to Expect ?


The overall result is a fuller lip and you should speak with the surgery about what kind of results you are looking for, because they can make them plumper for some than for others. The aging process can leave our lips thin which is why many opt to have a little filler put in just to give a more rounded lip, giving confidence. 


Will it Look Natural?


Many people are worried that they will have a ‘trout pout’ or an unnatural look to their lips after the procedure but this isn’t the case. The trained professionals will endeavor to give your lips more volume without changing your appearance to heavily. The look will be natural and other than your friends and family, nobody will have any idea that you have applied filler to your lips. 


Suitable Patients?


Almost everyone is suitable for this treatment and the only people who won’t be able to have it are those who are allergic to the filler, this is extremely rare. Essentially if you just want your lips to be a bit fuller and a bit more plump then this is a great treatment option for you. 


Does it Hurt?


The burning question on everyone’s lips… is whether or not having fillers hurt and the truth is that it doesn’t hurt, but it can be uncomfortable. The treatment itself can be a bit uncomfortable as the gel is injected into your lips and you can expect some light swelling in the days afterwards, this is perfectly normal and even a bit of bruising is to be expected. 


I’d really recommend this treatment for your lips, the results look great and it can give you more confidence when smiling and give your facial appearance a really nice boost.
