Expectation vs. Reality

Kylie Jenners lips didn’t happen after one session, just as most celebrities undergo small changes overtime that are subtle and natural. Although you will see a noticeable difference after one session, depending on the look you’re trying to achieve you may need more than 1-2 sessions or syringes. As they say Rome wasn’t built in a day, building your lips takes time as well. It’s always easier to add filler than to take away, therefore building it up over several months would be practical.

Right after your injection treatment your lips will be very full and plump. Lip fillers go down about 20% after a week which is why we always suggest waiting the full 2 weeks before adding more product to see how it has settled and if more needs to be added. Full lips are the trend now and we are constantly overwhelmed with pictures on instagram of girls with really big luscious lips. For this look ideally you would need 2-4 syringes depending on your natural lips. 5 syringes is equivalent to 1 teaspoon, picture that!

Lip fillers aren’t forever, although we all probably wish they were. Fillers, depending on the brand, (Juvederm, Stylage, Beloter9, Restylane) last anywhere between 6 to 12 months so if you love your initial results take lots of pictures as they do go down overtime. As far as prolonging the filler everyone’s body metabolizes them differently, so theres not much you can do. Lip fillers need to be kept up with every 4-6 months to keep your desired look so be prepared to see your cosmetic injector more often than you think.
