Lip jobs, we see them everywhere. Some good, some bad, some absolutely terrifying. Appealing lip enhancements are one of those specialties that need more than the right products and the right knowledge.They require the right eye for proportion. It turns out that creating a beautiful pair of lips is harder than it looks, and there are thousands of practitioners, some quite reputable, that just don’t have the necessary assets.
Master Practitioners at Juvly have gone through a virtual gauntlet to receive their title. Training is rigorous, and not everyone has the stamina or the talent to represent. Those that do make it in the door have more than a passing desire to practice aesthetics. They have a calling for it.
Today’s aestheticians often find a specialty and perfect it, lip augmentation is one of the most popular. If you want the best pair of lips for your face, an expert’s opinion is invaluable. As tempting as can be, it’s not enough to fall in love with a certain look, you need symmetry. You need lips that balance out the rest of your face, lips that enhance your beauty, not detract from it. At the risk of sounding too arty, the best lip enhancements are…well, artwork.
Most great practitioners have a special mix of dermal fillers that they use to achieve a desired look. Since the lips are actually divided into segments, or sub-units, each area will require a bit more or a bit less filler and it takes an experienced eye and flawless technique to gauge it.
To find the best lip enhancement practitioners in your area, our own experts offer this basic advice:
Check Their Reviews
It seems simplistic, but many PA’s & MD’s have chosen to add aesthetic procedure to their list of services and when it comes to the lips, it takes more than good medical training to pull off a great pout.
Insist on a Portfolio
Most talented aestheticians will have a decent representation of their work on Instagram or Facebook. Consistently beautiful augmentations will have an amazing profile as well as a vermillion lines free of bumps.
Look into Their Training
Training should come from an actual Plastic Surgeon or Master Provider with proven aesthetics expertise, a medical degree does not guarantee good work.
Gauge Their Level of Interest
This can be tricky, but your practitioner should be as invested as you are in the final outcome of your lip enhancement. A good provider will patiently answer your questions while giving you their full attention. Be wary of anyone who tries to push you into a procedure before you are 100% comfortable with the plan.
When it comes time for your lip augmentation appointment keep a few things in mind:
Lips can have a tendency to bleed
If you’re squeamish about a little bleeding, let your provider know ahead of time so you can both prepare accordingly. Also avoid any blood thinners for a week before the treatment.
Leave yourself a 3-4 day window before an event
Bruising around the injection sites is rare, but it does happen. It’s better to plan for the possibility. However most of the immediate swelling should be gone within 24 hours and the remaining enhancement should remain for up to eight months
Discuss the numbing procedure
Find out what your practitioner will be using to numb the area. Fortunately, today’s fillers have lidocaine, but if you’re particularly sensitive there are also numbing creams available.
Lip augmentation is growing in popularity and has become a regular part of many people’s beauty routine alongside skincare and a nice haircut. There is also growing evidence that Hyaluronic fillers, the only fillers you should allow near your lips, actually help them produce more natural volume over time. In any case, fillers are today’s only viable way to maintain the shape and volume of your lips as you age, and when they’re done right, you’ll truly love the results!
