Paying Lip Service to the Truth: Five Myths about Lip Fillers Debunked

Big, sore, fake, pricey?

At Dermal Clinic we aim to challenge common concerns and perceptions regarding lip enhancements, showing that naturally beautiful results can be easily obtained.

We take a look at five of the biggest myths surrounding lip fillers…


Treatments are too expensive

While many procedures can be expensive, undergoing a lip treatment won’t pull too heavily on your purse strings.

Lasting up to nine months, dermal fillers start at £180.


My lips will look fake

Many potential patients worry that getting their lips done will result in them looking fake. However, this is not the result we deliver at Dermal Clinic.

At Dermal Clinic, we use Galderma lip fillers that inject hydration into the skin, providing volume to the areas that need it most.

When done correctly, the results will look natural and dewy.


Anyone can do it

As cosmetic procedures have become more main-stream, there has been an increase in the number of lip ‘experts’ promising women perfect lips.

But not all of these ‘experts’ should be trusted. Many individuals claiming to offer stand-out procedures and quick-fix solutions are not medically qualified. This means that there is an increased risk to your health as a non-medically qualified ‘expert’ can’t prescribe the medications needed during a complication.

Make sure that you know the credentials of your chosen practitioner in advance to avoid unnecessary risks.


Fillers mean bigger

Thanks to the media, using fillers are now linked to oversized lips. But fillers being used to only increase the size of lips is a common misconception.

Many people invest in getting their lips treated to restore the elasticity of their skin and the plumpness of their pout. Both of these can be lost as we age, so topping up with hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body, is a simple way to revive tired lips.

Younger lips can also benefit from dermal fillers to give them a little extra symmetry or projection.


Treatment is painful

The thought of a procedure involving a needle sounds painful and can give you the jitters.

At Dermal Clinic, we strive to ensure our treatments are as pain-free as possible.

We offer our patients a complimentary dental block to numb or topical anaesthetic cream prior to the area being injected.

Like all procedures of this nature, there will be a slight discomfort, however if done correctly, injections should not be painful.


If you still think lip fillers don’t look natural, think again…

It is important to remember that cosmetic procedures, such as fillers, are only as safe as your chosen practitioner. Choosing the right, qualified specialist ensures that the treatment is not only low risk, but also involves minimal discomfort.

Don’t be put off by the lip horrors and myths. Achieving a naturally gorgeous smile is a much easier and less drastic process than portrayed by the media.

By being informed and picking an experienced practitioner, such as the qualified staff at Dermal Clinic, you could be kissing goodbye to tired lips and saying hello to the freshest version of you. Look better, feel better at Dermal Clinic.
