If you are scared of injections, there are more natural alternatives to lip fillers.
At some point in life, we ask this question; lip fillers yes or no? First thing first, what exactly are lip fillers? These are injectable drugs composed of various chemicals that enhance the volume of your lips. They can be permanent or temporary.
HA fillers, as they are commonly known, are the most common types of temporary lip fillers. The chemical composition is hyaluronic acid (HA) and a good example would be Restylane. This is a yes for me. The reason being, you can complete erase the effect if you don’t like the new set of lips you get. All you need is another injection of the eraser chemical and in five minutes, your natural lips will be back.
Otherwise, if you like the outcome, the HA filler will last for 6 months approximately. Save a few dollars for this. Like we all know, beauty is never cheap. Avoid quacks if you don’t wish to look like a crown at the end of the process. The lips should feel as natural as possible after 24hours. That is the average time it takes to reduce the swelling resulting from the injections.
Are permanent lip fillers yes or no? For me, it’s a no. But this is a personal choice based on how daring you can be. However, test the waters first with the temporary fillers and see how that goes before making a permanent decision.
