Do you want to define your lips but don’t want the side effects of conventional lip fillers?
Then you should go for the non-invasive lip treatments.
Now, before you jump to book an appointment with a specialist for the same, you must be well-equipped with all the knowledge about non-invasive lip fillers so that you have the right questions to ask your doctor.
In this blog, we are going to talk about the different aspects of non-invasive lip fillers to help you better understand the procedure so that you can make the right decision.
So what is non-invasive lip treatment?
Non-invasive lip enhancement involves using a tool called a Hyaluron pen to infuse Hyaluronic acid into the lips. Unlike conventional collagen lip fillers or fat injections, this Hyaluron pen technology works by making use of pressure instead of needles to put the Hyaluronic acid in the lips.
What is Hyaluron pen technology, you ask?
Hyaluron pen technology is being long used to deliver insulin to diabetic patients and has only recently found its application in cosmetic procedures. The pen works on a pressure technology, or as some like to call it, the spring system. Once the pen is pressed down toward the bottom, it generates pressure, pressing the Hyaluronic acid quickly into the lip without puncturing the skin like a needle. It is due to the high-speed movement of the Hyaluronic acid that quickly penetrates the skin through tubes or small pipes (no needles), which results in evident lip plumping and smoothening.
Wondering what is Hyaluronic acid, and why is it used in non-invasive lip treatments.
Hyaluronic acid is a slippery substance that our body naturally produces to lubricate tissues. It works by retaining the water to keep the tissue moisturized. Scientists have found Hyaluronic acid all over the body, especially in the eyes, skin, and joints. It has some remarkable benefits for the body due to which it is now being used in anti-aging procedures, some of which are:
- Makes skin healthier and supple:
Hyaluronic acid binds to the water to retain moisture in the skin which helps in making the skin smoother and reduces the appearance of puffiness, redness, and dermatitis.
- Improves skin elasticity and flexibility:
Hyaluronic acid has been scientifically proven to help skin become more stretchable and flexible making it soft. It is also believed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Now that you know the benefits of hyaluronic acid, let us talk about the myths associated with non-invasive lip fillers that are nothing but rumours.
- Non-invasive lip enhancement is a painful procedure:
No, non-invasive lip treatments are painless procedures. Unlike the painful lip injection which more often than not can leave you with different side effects, non-invasive lip treatments make your lips defined and smooth without the pain and scarring.
- Non-invasive lip-plumping treatments have a lot of risks:
Non-invasive lip fillers are a relatively safe process wherein FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based fillers are used. It is also due to the fact that our body produces hyaluronic acid, which makes the side effects a rare occurrence. As long as the procedure is performed by a medically qualified professional, you have nothing to worry about.
- Non-invasive lip fillers make lips look unnatural:
This couldn’t be farther from the truth. How your lips are going to look depends entirely on two factors- the techniques, and the product used. This is why we suggest doing extensive research before you decide on which doctor you would let perform the non-invasive lip treatment.
If you are planning to undergo a non-invasive lip treatment, it is important to be mindful of the following things beforehand:
- Lip fillers are temporary:
Non-invasive lip fillers are different from lip implants. This means that hyaluronic acid disintegrates with time. The process is even faster for the area mouth due to chewing and talking.
- Check doctor’s credentials:
Your face is one of the most sensitive parts of your body, which is why you need to be extra careful with whom you decide to make the transformation on your face. Make sure that you opt for someone who is qualified, and holds significant experience in the non-invasive process. If they are not legally bound, you can ask them to share details of some of their clients, so that you can get feedback and your questions answered.
- Don’t imitate celebrities:
One of the biggest mistakes people swayed by social media tend to make is, trying to look like their favourite celebrity. It is important to understand that everybody has a different facial structure which means what might suit a particular celebrity might not look good on your face. This is why it is important to get a consultation from a medically qualified and experienced professional, who will let you know what is the best solution for your lips regardless of the celebrity that you are trying to look like.
- Pre and post-care treatment is important:
While the possibility of side effects from Hyaluronic acid is rare, we would suggest you consult your doctor to get a pre as well as post-care treatment regime, which you can follow to eliminate any possibility of infections like not wearing makeup for at least 24 hours.
Non-invasive lip treatments are a relatively new procedure in the cosmetic industry but considering how easy these painless procedures are, it won’t be wrong to say that they might become the next big thing soon.
