Dermal fillers have long been among the most popular cosmetic treatments, and they’re no longer just used to smooth lines and wrinkles. Today, lip augmentation with dermal filler injections is surging in popularity.
Lip augmentation has the potential to be a very safe and natural-looking way to create the shape and volume you want for your lips, but only if you choose the right practitioner. Follow these top criteria when choosing your injector.
Clean Medical Environment
Because lip fillers are so popular, there are people who offer them at nearly any business you can imagine: beauty salons, nail salons, day spas, and more. There are even people who perform injections in private hotel rooms. None of these are safe environments.
Even though lip injections are cosmetic, they still constitute a medical procedure so they need to be done in a sterile medical environment. Choose a safety-focused medical clinic with properly trained healthcare staff and critical sanitation protocols.
Extensive Experience with Lip Fillers
Many people don’t realise just how precise lip fillers are. Your injector needs to not only inject the fillers into the safe precise areas but they need to shape them to get the natural contours you want. You need an injector who knows what they’re doing. Choose a specialist with extensive experience not only with Facial Dermal fillers but with lip augmentation in particular.
Healthcare Improvement Scotland Registration
As we noted, a lip filler injection is a medical procedure. For a truly safe experience, you need a properly credentialed medical clinic. Specifically, make sure your clinic is registered with Healthcare Improvement Scotland. This ensures that they have passed inspections and are maintaining the safe practices they need to follow for your safety.
Care for Your Psychological Well-Being
Cosmetic procedures need to be handled with care. A medical provider has a duty of care to you to make sure that you are choosing your cosmetic treatment for the right reasons and that there isn’t an underlying psychological issue that you are trying to fix with cosmetic changes.
A responsible medical professional should talk to you at a pre-arranged consultation about the procedure. They should ask you why you want lip augmentation and should make sure that you have the right expectations for your results. If a provider seems to be rushing you toward the procedure without talking things through, they aren’t the right fit.
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Getting Lip Augmentation
The injector you choose is an important part of your lip augmentation, but you’re an important part of the procedure too. Before you schedule a consultation for lip fillers, there are a few questions you should ask yourself:
● What are my goals? What do I want to look like after my procedure? Is this a reasonable goal?
● What do I expect to change after my lip augmentation? Am I expecting this procedure to fix other aspects of my life like my relationship, career, or overall self-worth?
● Am I in good physical health? Or should I be avoiding adding any strain or stress to my body?
● How will I feel during the days after my procedure when I have minor side effects like bruising or swelling? Am I willing to deal with these side effects to get the results I want, or will I be regretting my choice?
All of these questions are important to ask yourself to make sure that lip augmentation is truly the best path forward.
