Myths and Misconceptions of Lip Filler

22nd September 2019

When people are considering lip fillers some common misconceptions often make people feel wary about having the treatment.

As with cosmetic surgery, there has been a stigma surrounding lip fillers that has been a result of the media showcasing ‘botched jobs’. However, with time, this stigma is starting to dissipate, as high profile celebrities and many other influencers showcase their results on social media and other platforms. These celebrities and influencers are clear examples that, when done correctly, lip fillers can achieve amazing results.

“Lip fillers are only for the more mature”

While lip fillers are a great, proven method to keep you looking youthful, their benefits aren’t exclusive to the mature. The collagen growth-promoting qualities of, Hyaluronic based, fillers means that if you are to have lip fillers at a younger age, they will have a preventative effect against ageing. The belief that lip fillers are for the mature is very much a thing of the past. As fashion has changed many more 20-30-year-olds desire lips with a full appearance, lip fillers are the ideal way to achieve the best results.

 “Lip fillers are only for thin lips”

Although lip fillers are known for, filling lips, there are many other great uses for lip fillers. They can contour your mouth, hydrate dry lips, define your cupid’s bow and can also be used to help improve the overall symmetry of your face. The possibilities are endless!

“If I get lip fillers there’s no changing or going back”

At R3 in Milton Keynes we use Hyaluronic based dermal filler, which is not the same as permanent silicone filler. This is great because it allows a natural-appearing enhancement and also allows us to make changes in the future if your desires and needs change.

“Lip fillers are only for women”

Again, this is completely false. Both men and women can benefit from lip fillers. This is more of a social stigma where men may be portrayed as less masculine for having cosmetic procedures. Despite this, there has been an increase in young men wanting to change the look of their lips through the use of dermal fillers.

“Anyone can do the procedure and any filler is fine”

When getting any form of injection, a professional with sufficient qualifications, training, and experience must do it. This ensures that you will get the best results possible. The face has a complex structure of nerves and vessels that shouldn’t be touched; ensuring a professional does the treatment will minimise the possible risks. It is also important to look at the different types of fillers available, so that you can get the optimal result. Here at R3 Aesthetics, we have specially trained providers available to help you achieve your best personal results.
