What You Need To Know About Lip Injections
How long do they last?
Lip injections do not last forever, the good side to this is that if you grow old of them your lips will return to normal size. The bad side of this means having to go back to keep getting them done meaning more money out of your wallet.
The injections usually last as little as four to six months. Everybody's body is different and the time they will last varies for everyone.
Will it hurt?
There is really no way to say if it will hurt specifically for you. Some people have higher pain tolerances than others. In reality, yes it can hurt a bit but that's expected when sticking sharp objects into your body. The good part is you do have the option to have your lips numbed to reduce the pain of the injections.
So of course when you first get your injections they will swell up at first making them appear bigger than they will be once they heal. This swelling can last up to ten or less days. It is said to avoid blood thinners before your procedure to reduce the amount of swelling and bruising after you get them. Using ice can also help relieve the lips.
What's the price?
The price of getting lip injections can vary. Usually most places will charge around $500 - $1,000. The price of the procedure really depends on many different situations such as the size your going for, and where you are going to get them done.
I suggest doing research on how you want them done and discover places in your area that is in your price range and can get quality work done to avoid any negative side effects.
What to keep in mind
Remember when getting lip injections everyone will look different depending on the person. We won't all look like Kylie Jenner. So keep that in mind if you are trying to match a certain persons lip look that it most likely won't end up turning out exactly the same.
