Lip Filler 101: Class Is In!

February may be the shortest month of the year but it’s also the most romantic, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Whether you’re single, taken, or somewhere in between, it’s the perfect time to celebrate with some self-love: No fancy date night necessary! 

Treat yourself to the perfect pout with lip filler this year. Here’s what you need to know about one of the hottest treatments available. 

During the aging process, we naturally lose volume around the mouth — although this is typical and absolutely normal, so is wanting to add a bit of that “oomph” back.

Lip filler is used to contour, plump and smooth the lips for a kissable mouth that lasts well beyond Valentine’s Day. The primary ingredient found in filler, hyaluronic acid (HA), is naturally found in the body. HA holds water and helps keep the skin hydrated and plump. Injected, it has the ability to alter the shape, structure, and volume of your lips. 

As time goes on the hyaluronic acid is metabolized and absorbed by our system. Once the treatment wears off, your lips will look the same as they did prior to the injection. It’s a total myth that lip injections cause a permanent volume decrease.

It’s also a myth that lip filler will look unnatural. Although you can expect some swelling and bruising up to two weeks after injections, the final look can be as subtle as you’re comfortable with. The dreaded duck pout is not a guarantee.  With anything cosmetic, it’s important to find an injector that you trust. Your results are largely determined by the person performing the procedure. At Glo Skin Spa we ensure trustworthy and high quality results that match your desired aesthetic. Initially we recommend starting small (think half a syringe) and then growing the look over time if you’d like to build up the volume to something a bit more plump.

One of the best things about lip filler is its longevity.

Once injected, lip filler lasts 9 months to a year which is great news for your wallet and for those who don’t love needles.  While the procedure may be an investment up front, it’s an incredibly safe and long-lasting relationship. 

As for the needle part, we won’t lie, it does hurt. Still, we provide patients with a numbing cream prior to injection and many of the fillers we use even have numbing properties in the formula so your lips will numb as the procedure is done. Even better? No matter how hesitant you are of the needle, it only takes a few minutes to complete all the injections, so you won’t have to be in pain for long.  

Don’t spend the month thinking of “what ifs” and wishing for a change. We’re here to help transform you into the best version of yourself and help your confidence soar. Give us a call and book your lip filler appointment today so you can have kissable lips in time for Valentine’s Day, even if you’re just spending it with some friends. Get glo-ing: (989) 214-1973.
