💉 👄 Lip filler, laugh line filler & Botox...
I get a lot of the same questions on this topic from those interested, so I wanted to answer them all here for you! 🙂
💉 WHAT ARE LIP INJECTIONS?
Lip injections are injectable dermal filler, that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid - a natural substance found in the body.
Fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding Shape, Structure & Volume.
There's several fillers on the market. I use 1ml Juvederm Ultra Plus & 1ml vollure.
Filler can be used in the lips, cheekbones/cheeks, lines above lips, around nose & chin, aka: laugh lines.
💉 HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
The effects typically last 6, up to 18 months.
Results vary. your body will break down the product over time naturally on its own.
(My routine fill is every 4 months.)
💉 DOES IT HURT?
They begin by using a numbing cream for 15-30 min. (This is what is first wiped & removed in the video). But it honestly feels like a needle getting shoved into your lips multiple times lol It's tolerable & quick. Feels like stinging pressure...achieving desired results make it worth it. Most fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic.
💉 COMMON SIDE EFFECTS?
Typical side effects include minimal bleeding, bruising & swelling to the area treated.
💉 How much will this cost me?
Cost depends on many factors, such as the area treated, amount needed and type or product used to achieve desired outcome. A consultation is best.
💉 WHAT IS BOTOX?
There is a big difference between Botox and fillers. "Botox" is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It is used cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. I get 22ml of Botox, 3x a year in my forehead to help reduce & prevent wrinkles.
The effects of a Botox injection are temporary. results vary but typically last 4 months.
💉 WHAT DOES BOTOX FEEL LIKE?
Each little quick injection feels like a small prick.
Honestly quiet painless.
💉 WHERE DO I GET MY TREATMENTS?
I go to mercy hospital in Baltimore MD.
I see @megfoxfilltox Meg fox.
