Updated: May 31, 2023

Dermal Fillers for Lip Augmentation at Rejuvenus Clinic.

To get a natural but a well-defined look of the lips with a lift of the upper lip we personally, over the past 10 years of injecting have developed a technique of treating the cupid’s bow to help raise the lips naturally rather than injecting the lips with too much filler and making it swell and heavy.

As the pressure is on all us young females, many are seeking cheap options to have their lips treated without any prior research into the treatment or their practitioner. If a lip is being too cheap one must ask the question why is it too cheap?

Cheap doesn’t always mean safe or genuine products being used. It’s evident that we are an age where having your lips done is common practice, yet how do you know what type of treatment is for you?

Women are experiencing “botched” jobs all the time due to a lack of research and opting for cheaper treatments which aren’t performed by registered professionals in a clinical setting. Here at Rejuvenus Clinic, as Medical Injectors for over 10 years, we will tell you of the 10 things you should know before going under the needle to ensure a safe and successful treatment.

1 – Do your research on the Clinic and the Medical Practitioner

It’s important to find out as much as you can about a clinic you are interested in. Although lip fillers are relatively safe, there is always the chance of problems occurring. Therefore, you need to make sure they are going to look after you and get the results you want to achieve, with as little risk as possible.

Ask the following questions – What qualifications do the practitioners have? Are they fully certified? How long have they been operating as a practice?

2 – Know why you want your lips done

So many people base wanting cosmetic enhancements like lip fillers for the wrong reasons.

Although it’s not permanent, lip filler using hyaluronic acid will last for a while, so you need to make sure it is right for you as you won’t be able to easily reverse the results.

If you are basing your decision on just wanting to keep up with others, then you need to give some serious consideration to it.

3 – Make sure your practitioner is a Healthcare Practitioner with a Canadian Registration and with more than five years’ experience

Further to the above, you want to know that they have a reasonable amount of experience working specifically with dermal fillers and lip injections. Five years’ worth is a good and solid foundation that shows they know what they are doing.

Although your practitioner may be suitable having spent less time working with lip fillers, you want to have that confidence that you are in safe hands with someone who has worked extensively with lip fillers.

4- Have an Initial Consultation

Most trustworthy and reputable practices will not offer the treatment without an initial consultation. This is a chance for the practitioner to find out more about your reasons for wanting lip fillers, as well as your medical history.

You can use this as an opportunity to find out more about the procedures, including how long it will take, and what recovery, if any, is required. It’s a good idea to make a list of all the questions you want to ask before you go along for your appointment.

5 – Leave the Kylie lip pic at home

While Kylie Jenner may well be your inspiration for getting lip fillers, your practitioner doesn’t need to see a picture of what her lips look like. Remember, your facial structure, mouth and lip shape and size are different from hers, as they are anyone else’s.

Your practitioner will help create the look you want for your lips based on your own needs and biology. It would be irresponsible to simply use lip injections to make you look like a Kardashian without considering what’s best for your face.

6 – Know the downtime and ensure you are given aftercare information

A crucial aspect of any cosmetic work you have done is the downtime and aftercare. Even if it is just a few days of rest, you need to be aware of it so you can plan your schedule to give your lip fillers the time they need to settle.

You also need to make sure you are given instructions on what you can do in your own home to help the recovery process, like reducing the swelling and bruising.

7 – Ensure your practitioner is trained to deal with complications

It is all very well getting lip injections by a practitioner that has a great reputation for always being successful and handling straightforward patients and problem-free procedures but what happens if there are any complications?

While it’s important to ensure they never happen in the first place, you want to know that when they do, the practitioner is properly equipped and experienced to deal with them and resolve any problems.

At Rejuvenus Clinic, we can also help with lip filler dissolving and correction from bad work if required.

8 – It pays to pay more

Everyone likes to save money where possible and getting a bargain is always a great feeling. However, there are some things where you need to weigh up whether saving money is worthwhile.

When it comes to getting lip fillers done, for instance, given the associated risks, do you want to invest in a practice that is offering this service at extremely low prices compared to their rivals?

You might wonder how they can do it for the lower price or if the lower price is an indication to the standard of service you will receive.

9 – Each patient achieves a different result, therefore do not compare yours to others

Picking up from what I said earlier about leaving the Jenner pics at home, it’s worth reiterating that just as your lips are different from another woman’s, the results and how your body reacts to the lip injections of hyaluronic acid will be different too.

You can be inspired to get lip fillers by friends or celebrities, but just know you may not have the same results.

10 – The filler isn’t forever

As great as lip fillers are, they are not permanent. You will need to book yourself in for further appointments to maintain the look. Your practitioner will advise you of when you should be looking to get any top-ups or additional fillers injected.

In conclusion, while lip fillers are all the rage at the moment, it’s very important to consider the ten reasons above before you book that appointment and pull the trigger. Understand everything about the treatment before you decide. If you would like to have your lips treated, it’s best to speak with a specialist at Rejuvenus Clinic. They use advanced techniques for the safe and effective treatment of lip augmentation. Contact Rejuvenus Clinic at 647.615.0223 to schedule a complementary consultation.
