SIX FACTS ABOUT DERMAL LIP FILLERS YOU MAY NOT KNOW

Lip filler
  1. Half of consumers invest in lip fillers to “boost their self confidence levels,” while the other half use them as a quick fix for “facial perfection.”
  2. Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid-based solutions will remain the most frequently requested procedures in aesthetic practices in 2019.
  3. Social media, particularly the selfie culture, remains one of the biggest factors in driving clients to opt for lip fillers
  4. Results typically last around six to eight months. It all depends on your body’s own metabolism. The good news is that you’ll need less product during the second treatment to get the same effect.
  5. The beauty of a lip filler is that it’s temporary, so if you don’t like how it looks the nurse injector can offer you an eraser enzyme called hyaluronidase to accelerate the filler breakdown. At Defy Nature, Kristin believes less is more when it’s your first time. Her goal is to give you a pretty, natural look – not overfilled duck lips!
  6. Lip filler treatment takes about 30 minutes and there is virtually no down time. Some people bruise more easily than others and some of Kristin’s clients don’t bruise at all. Avoiding aspirin, fish oils, and blood thinner one week prior to the treatment will help significantly with recovery.
