Let’s Take a Look at Lip Fillers – Sorting Fact from Fiction

Ever since the #KylieJennerChallenge, there has been an exponential rise in the number of people looking to get the perfect pout. At the same time, we have witnessed the rise in judgement and misconceptions surrounding lip and dermal filler treatments. As a qualified aesthetic nurse regularly delivering lip fillers to my patients at KP Aesthetics in Hale, Altrincham, I have been following this surge for some time; wincing as I’m sure you all have at overly swollen lips, and complimenting the work of my peers for some local celebs living in the limelight with newly lush lips. I want to take this time to share more about the lip filler treatment, what not to do, and why you might consider booking in for your free consultation today.

Where Does Lip Filler’s Bad Press Come From?

Other than hundreds of celebs including, the Jenners, Khloe Kardashian, Ellie Goulding, and Michelle Keegan, many more people of all ages are opting for lip fillers in order to find the sultry smile, or naturally plump lips they once could only dreamed of. Of course, as with the trend in a number of aesthetic treatments, we have social media and our favourite magazines to thank for the spotlight on lip fillers. Across these same media platforms we are also fed countless botch-home-kit jobs, and allergic reactions from clinics that do not follow the rules. Unsurprisingly, such stories and images have had us gasping in horror rather than picking up the phone to make an appointment. However, it is important to understand where their mistakes were made, how to avoid them, and know where you can find a professional to do a safe and quality job.

What to Look Out For

I, along with most professionals in the cosmetic and aesthetics industry, would always strongly suggest making an appointment for your lip filler treatment, rather than choosing to do the job from home. Not only does a medical practitioner have the necessary experience, a clinic also has a fully sanitised treatment area which can be difficult to obtain at home.

When choosing a clinic, take a look at their website and look for examples of their

previous work, their testimonials, and proof of their qualifications. At KP Aesthetics, your free initial consultation will always look at your medical history, assess what you want and how we can achieve it in the most natural-looking way. I will also talk you through the procedure, ensuring that any of your questions and concerns are addressed so that you feel at ease in choosing whether or not to have the lip or dermal filler treatment. Any reputable aesthetics clinic should give the same attention and care to their patients.

Who Can Have Lip Fillers?

The answer is anyone. For most people it all comes down to confidence and wanting to feel contented in our own skin. Of course not everyone is born with the full, luscious lips of Angelia Jolie, and those who are will find that during the ageing process, that volume will gradually disappear. Lip fillers offer a non-invasive and incredibly effective answer for people of 18 to 80 – and beyond! With no downtime and very minor side effects, it is no surprise to me that lip fillers are seeing such a growth in popularity.

Lip Fillers at KP Aesthetics

Once we have had the initial consultation as I’ve mentioned above, we can book in for the treatment. The lip filler solution is gently delivered to the lips, containing a substance called Hyaluronic Acid. It is a naturally occurring substance in the skin which contributes not only to the fullness of our lips, but our face too, and is lost during the ageing process. As it is produced naturally by the skin cells, the body happily accepts the hyaluronic acid with negligible chances of adverse reactions. After the treatment you can expect to leave KP Aesthetics with a big smile and beautiful, kissable lips.
