Hey Glow Beauty Bar friends and fam!
It’s your Estie Felicia, I’d like to share with you my experience of getting lip filler for the first time and what you may expect before, during and after your lip filler.
Why did I get lip filler?
My reasoning for lip filler was all about “smoothing my fine lines.” I loved the size of my lips, and loved the shape, but as I’m getting older, I’m noticed that the “plumpness” and hydration was lacking in my lips. I wanted my lips to have the same effect as it does when I applied lip balm..and that lead me down the road to lip fillers!
If you don’t know….ASK!
If you don’t know a thing about lip fillers, the worst thing you can do is be too shy to ask or put all your faith in your injector! Here a Glow Beauty Bar, our nurse injector Svetlana was extremely patient with the 1000 questions I had, I asked her everything from her background in injections to what I do want and what I don’t want. Let me tell you, if your injector won’t take the time to hear you out then she’s not the one for you! Especially it being my first time, Svetlana answered everything I needed to know… even down to what kind of filler she was using. She also reassured me that I could contact her at anytime if I had questions.
After my millions of questions, the process was quit easy, my lips were sanitized, numbed and the injecting began. Now, everyone is different…but I found it to be a teeeeeeeeeeny bit uncomfortable, I guess what I’m trying to say is that, based off of videos I watched on Instagram, Tik Tok and other social media platforms, the girls make it look like a piece of cake! But For me… I could definitely feel each needle and there was slight discomfort. But once it was over, my lips felt hot and that was it!
The After Effect
Healing was a piece of cake! I must say there must be an art to injecting because based off of the videos and social media videos I’ve seen, I was expecting bruising, lumps and uneven lips for the first week. The most I got from the “healing” period was puffier lips in the morning and then it would go down to normal by mid-day. No bruising!
Would I do it again?
Of course! I plan to redo my lips around the one year mark, (summer 2023), as a little touch up to smoothen the fine lines again. I haven’t notice them “go down” or “back to normal” as of yet, which is a good thing! I find staying hydrated prolongs the plumpness of the filler!
