7 Lip Filler Rumours You Need to Stop Believing:

Do you believe these as well?

There are a lot of lip filler treatments that have gone wrong, which is enough to put anyone off the idea. However, what many don’t realise, is that with the help of the right professional, lip fillers can produce amazing results that look and feel natural.

If you have been toying with the idea of lip fillers but are not sure what information to believe, here is the truth behind some of the most common rumours.

Debunking Common Lip Filler Rumours

Rumour 1: Once you start with lip fillers you can’t stop or your lips will sag

This is absolutely not true. When you’re using dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, you are plumping up your lips and stimulating collagen production, which creates healthier lips over the long term. You can stop using dermal lip fillers at any time and your lips will still look natural.

Rumour 2: There’s nothing you can do if your results look terrible

Some fillers do contain ingredients that take up to two years to break down but if you stick to fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, you won’t have to wait as long for the ingredients to break down. What’s more, if you’re unhappy with your results directly after your treatment, a dissolving enzyme can be used to immediately reverse the results.

Rumour 3: Lip fillers are only for older patients

If you’ve been searching for information about lip fillers, you may have wondered at some point whether you’re too young to consider the treatment. While fillers are often used to treat common signs of ageing, it’s also an excellent treatment for patients in their 20s because it slows down the ageing process by stimulating collagen production.

Rumour 4: My face is going to look completely different

Yes, the shape of your smile is going to look slightly different but you will still look natural. When done correctly, the results of lip fillers are so subtle that people won’t be able to see a major difference unless they know you intimately.

Rumour 5: Lip fillers will make my face look rounder

Again, your results are going to depend on the experience of your clinician. If lip fillers are injected correctly, your lips will look slightly fuller but also shapelier, so they won’t make your face look rounder.

Rumour 6: Lip fillers are only for those who have thin lips

Lip fillers are not only used to add volume, they are also used to adjust the Cupid’s bow and make the lips look more symmetrical. Another common use of lip fillers is to lift turned down corners of the mouth and treat dry, cracked lips.

Rumour 7: Top up treatments are costly and a hassle

Lip fillers can last up to 6 months, which means you will need to schedule treatments twice a year. Naturally, every patient will have a different experience, which means lip fillers may not last as long for some as they do for others. Your clinician will be able to advise you on this during your consultation.

Lip filler treatments are popular for a reason and can enhance one of your best features in a subtle and natural way.
