Lip Fillers

Did you know….? The Truth About Lip Fillers


Keeping a smooth youthful appearance with a little help from aesthetics is nothing new, and lip fillers can be a very effective treatment.

Plump, kissable lips will help you to look younger as well as being irresistibly attractive too!

One of the top clinics in Glasgow, Glam Aesthetics, share some little-known facts about lip fillers.

You can have your lips numbed first

Having your lips injected isn’t a painful experience but depending on your sensitivity levels, you might find it stings a little.

Some clinics offer the option of having a numbing cream applied first so that when the filler is applied, you won’t feel a thing!

The numbing cream won’t last for long, typically around 15 minutes and then you’ll be able to continue with your day as planned.

Your lips will feel just the same as before

Lip fillers provide the option to  give just a subtle enhancement or a more radical transformation, depending on your personal preference.

However, no matter what look you choose, after the treatment your lips will still feel entirely natural and retain full feeling. After the treatment you may be slightly bruised for a few days, but once this heals your lips will be exactly the same as before, but just with some extra pout and volume!

Take a day off from exercising

The whole procedure only takes about 20 minutes and then you’re free to get on with your day, but there are some activities you should avoid such as exercise.

The ban only lasts for 24 hours and then there’s no excuse not to hit the gym but increasing blood flow to the face can up the risk of bleeding, bruising and swelling. For this reason, massages and facials should be given a wide berth for 24 hours too.


You might get a cold sore

Lip fillers are a very safe procedure and there’s virtually no side effects or recovery time needed following treatment.

However, if you’re prone to getting cold sores then lip fillers can trigger another episode. Therefore, as a preventative measure if you think you might be susceptible it’s a good idea to take cold sore medication for 48 hours prior to getting the lip fillers injected.

You can stop at any time

Lip fillers provide a temporary change to your appearance and if you want to retain the same plump pout, you’ll need to have a treatment approximately every 6 months.

If you stop having lip fillers, your lips will simply return to their previous state with no damage done. In some cases individuals notice their lips remain slightly plumper than before because the injections jumpstart the body’s own natural production in higher quantities.
