What to Do When You Get Bad Lip Injections


Cosmetic surgeries and lip fillers are getting popular day by day. Lip fillers specifically have been the most requested medical treatment in the past two years. With models and celebrities flaunting their new lips looking flawless, many people get the finally get the courage to get their lips done too. But unfortunately, lip fillers don’t always look the best on everyone due to specific reasons such as poorly placed fillers, low-quality filler injected, unprofessional procedure, and more. Choosing the right professional to do your lips is important. Not every cosmetic surgeon is an expert at injecting.

Fillers have the power to transform the look of the face. Properly injected fillers can get rid of wrinkles and fine lines instantly as well as plump up the face in a healthy way. However, unfortunately, bad lip fillers can happen to anyone if you don’t have the right professional working on your lips. But luckily, you don’t have to live with them forever. The effects of lip fillers can successfully be reversed if you:

See a professional dermatologist

When you finally decide to go ahead with filler correction, the first step is to meet an experienced and qualified dermatologist who has expertise in filler correction. Lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid. It can only be broken down by a natural enzyme known as Hyaluronidase. This enzyme is injected to break down the chemical and get rid of the fillers gradually. Just like every healing process, this takes time as well. Bruises will be visible as a side effect, which technically lasts for a week. Injecting anything into the lips takes an artistic skill, which is why it’s important to make sure your treatment provider is qualified to do the job.

Cheap fillers result in bad lips most of the time, which makes you end up paying more for filler correction than the procedure itself. The cost can go up to $500.

Wait a while

Hyaluronic acid creates a full and plump effect once injected into the lips. The whole process takes up to 2-3 weeks to alleviate. Some side effects are small bumps, swelling, and bruising. If you’re super unhappy with the results, you need to wait at least two weeks before you get them undone. This is because bruising and swelling is at its peak, and the whole process needs to stabilize before “reverse sculpting” is done. Avoid exercise and alcohol for at least two days after getting lip injections.

Avoid Silicon fillers?

Hyaluronic acid is the only filler that is reversed by Hyaluronidase. HA fillers are recommended if you want to get the fillers removed instantly. Other types of fillers cannot be broken down by an enzyme. They take the time to break down and dissolve on their own, which can take up to months. Silicon fillers are strictly told to be avoided as they are permanent, and they can never go away once injected.

If you decide on having your fillers removed, it’s always best to seek help from a certified physician and always go for Hyaluronic acid fillers whenever possible, as this keeps you on the safe side. Make sure you always get your lips injected from a certified expert to avoid having filler correction done.
