3 Considerations to Make Before You Get Lip Injections

Lip Augmentation Syracuse, NY Having fuller, sexier lips doesn’t have to be an unattainable fantasy. With lip fillers, you and everybody else under the sun can get Kylie Jenner lips that will have everyone in your inner circle feeling a little bit jealous. With so many options available, however, it can be hard to decide whether you should go with collagen injections, hyaluronic acid injections, or even tissue injections using either your own tissue or a donor’s tissue. Before you land on what lip augmentation procedure is right for you and your body, let’s take a closer look at some things that you should consider.

Side Effects Are Possible

If you have never had any lip injections before, then you may not know how your body will react. Although rare, allergic reactions such as redness, itching, or swelling may occur. Other side effects like asymmetry, excessive bleeding, or hematoma formation may also occur.

In some instances, if you have had prior allergic reaction on your skin, we may perform a pre-treatment skin test to make sure that your potential allergy won’t affect the procedure.

They Are Temporary

All lip injections are temporary and depending on the type of injection that you go with, it will help determine how long they will last. For instance, collagen usually doesn’t last as long while synthetic materials last the longest.

They May Not work

In very rare instances, synthetic materials are rejected as a foreign substance by the body and simply won’t work.
