First, you have the option of topical numbing cream or a dental block – like dentists use to numb you before a cavity filling. I chose the dental block and after a few slight pinches in my gums, I felt… nothing. My entire mouth was as numb as can be and I had zero pain going forward.
Of course, everyone reacts to certain anesthetics in different ways, but my overall experience was great.
Question 4: Will I bruise?
Some bruising can occur – especially since the skin on and around your lips are more sensitive than other areas – but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will occur. If it does, it can typically be covered with some spot concealer and usually disappears within five days.
Question 5: Will they swell?
The same goes for swelling. The second-day post-treatment is when you can expect the most swelling to occur, but you’ll notice a gradual decrease in swelling over the following days. Again, it doesn’t happen to everyone, but it’s important to know that it can.
Long story short, the overall pain and healing process is totally doable and not bad whatsoever. If you’re lusting after some lips, we are here to help you get ’em!
Question 6: How long will they last?
There are a few different factors that can affect how long your lip filler will last. Each different filler has its own lasting power.
Your own body chemistry and lifestyle can play a big part in it as well. If you have a fast metabolism and/or are extremely active, there’s a higher chance that the filler might metabolize quicker for you.
Not to worry, though – you’re still going to get an awesome amount of “wear time” out of your beautiful, new lips!
With the specific fillers that we use at Juvly, you can expect an average of 6-12 months, and can always get touch-ups if needed.
It’s not a permanent treatment, and that’s the beauty of it! Again, we only want to enhance your beautiful features, not completely change them.
So whether your main concern is size, shape, fullness, etc. We will help you create your perfect pout.
