Who is Kylie Jenner?

Why is everyone going gaga over Kylie Jenner’s lips?

Kylie Jenner is the youngest sibling of the Jenners who rose to fame because of the reality television show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” She is also the owner-founder of the beauty empire, Kylie Cosmetics.

Kylie Cosmetics has launched a wide array of cosmetic products which highlighted lip kits. These lip kits have become popular as ladies around the globe went crazy over Kylie’s perfect pout. Thus, every time Kylie Cosmetics launches a new line of lip kits, they would surely sell out in minutes.

So really, what makes women so obsessed with pouty lips?

Theoretically, pouty or fuller lips exude sensuality. It is believed that women with fuller lips are more attractive than those who have thinner brims. The trend of pouty lips has become a fashionable influence on the cosmetic industry for many years. This has sparked the upturn of lip fillers and lip enhancement treatments.

Indeed, Kylie’s pouty lips are an amazing creation of lip fillers. From totally normal lips to glamorous pucker lips, Kylie has influenced ladies all over the world to take that step and give their lips some love.

Benefits of Lip Fillers

Although lip fillers offer temporary results, patients can request a defined size and contour. Some amazing benefits of lip fillers include reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the lips and around the mouth, adding natural fullness and contour as you desire, and making asymmetrical lips more even.

Customize the Fullness of Your Lips

The volume or fullness of lip fillers can be controlled by injecting the fillers slowly while stimulating collagen production in your lips. You can discuss with your cosmetic doctor how pumped up you want your lips to be.

Gradual Touch-ups

Depending on your desired plumpness, lip fillers will be administered at a gradual pace in multiple appointments. This will give the lip fillers ample time to metabolize with your lip tissues before the next touch-up.

Worry-free Bumps

While bumps are a risk factor of facial fillers, you can ease up with lip filler bumps. Bumps on the lips are a normal upshot of lip muscle contractions. However, this downtime can be dissolved easily as the hyaluronic acid settles down in your lips.

Less Bruising and Swelling

Bruising and swelling are accounted as minimal downtimes of lip fillers. They appear lesser after lip filler treatments than after other facial filler procedures. They are also reduced within the next twenty-four to forty-eight hours.

Reasonably Lasting Results

Lip fillers offer long-lasting results for about six months to one year. Although the results are temporary, they can be prolonged with several touch-up sessions.

Lower Risk to Allergens

Hyaluronic acid is a natural plant-derived substance that helps promote collagen and elastin production in the skin. It is formulated with natural components that contain no allergens, hence, allergic reactions will be very unlikely. However, there are hyaluronic acid lip fillers that contain anesthetic doses known as lidocaine. If you are allergic to anesthetics, it is best to disclose it with your cosmetic doctor. This way, any adverse effects may be prevented.

Downtimes and Risks

Most lip fillers use hyaluronic acid as the main component of their substance, risks and adverse effects are very rare. However, you may still expect some downtimes that include insignificant bleeding at the injection sites, swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, and reactivated cold sores around the lips.

Just like any other cosmetic enhancement treatment, effects may differ from one patient to another. Some may have minimal downtimes, while others may experience serious side effects. More serious adverse effects or risks may consist of severe and prolonged swelling or bruising which lasts for more than one week, lip asymmetry, lumps and other irregularities on and around the lips, infection, occlusions, lip ulcers, scarring, stiffening of the lip, itching, and allergic reactions.

When any of these adverse reactions occur, remember to consult your cosmetic doctor immediately.

Lip Filler Procedure

Lip filler procedures can be performed in your cosmetic doctor’s office with little to no downtime. Before administering the lip fillers, a topical anesthetic or sedative may be applied to the injection sites to help ease discomfort. In some instances, patients with lower tolerance to pain are given nerve block injections to completely numb the entire lips.

Once the sedative has taken effect, the injection sites will be carefully marked. And very fine needles will be used to inject the lip filler substances into your lips. The substance is slowly administered to the lips to ensure more effective and reliable results. When you feel like you need more plumpness in your lips after the first treatment, you may discuss subsequent sessions with your cosmetic doctor.

After the procedure, an ice pack or cooling gel pad will be applied to your lips to help ease discomfort and reduce signs of swelling. However, applied pressure must be controlled on the treatment area to prevent any risks of filler migration.

Since lip fillers have minimal downtime, you may be allowed to drive home or return to work immediately after your treatment. However, lip products must not be applied at once. After the recovery period, you will notice that your lips have healed and mostly feel natural.
