5 Myths about Lip Injections


Lip injections can get a bad rap and many people have vowed to never get them, but not everything you see on TV and read online is true. Here are some common myths about getting these services, such as juverderm:

Myth 1: You will always have to keep up with injections.

Some people think their face will become addicted to them or you will need injections forever because their lips will stretch out from the first injection. However, getting lip injections once does not mean you will need them forever.

Myth 2: You can’t fix them.

If you don’t like the results of the lip injections, depending on the type of injection you have, there may be something you can do. If you use hyaluronic acid, a doctor can eject an eraser called hyaluronidase to dissolve the filler.

Myth 3: Lip injections are only good for people with thin lips.

While this is the most common use for lip injections, they can actually help a number of different problems, including asymmetry, disproportionate top and bottom lips, or turned down corners. They can also help make dry and cracked lips appear smoother.

Myth 4: Injections will increase the risk of cold sores.

Fillers and injections are sterile. Those who get cold sores after injections are predisposed to getting them with stress that a lip augmentation can put on your lips.

Myth 5: You are too young or old for fillers.

Many people of all ages use lip fillers and it doesn’t matter how old or young you are. They can be used to counteract some of the effects of aging, since the hyaluronic acid helps trigger collagen production. They also can be used to help enhance the area by adding volume, making them versatile for any age.
