Here at Aesthetically You lip plumping injections are one of our most requested treatments. The majority of clients that visit our clinic are looking to achieve a fuller, plumper, more defined pout. When carried out by an experienced, qualified practitioner, lip fillers can create a beautiful look that will enhance the overall shape of your face.
Unfortunately, from time to time we receive new clients visiting our clinic to undergo treatments to correct uneven lip augmentation carried out by inexperienced practitioners.
When considering undergoing any sort of cosmetic injections such as lip fillers it is extremely important to make sure that you are well informed about the procedure before you go ahead with your first treatment. Here are our top tips for the smoothest journey from start to finish.
Finding the right practitioner requires you to do some initial research. Where do you even start? Ask around. A referral from somebody you know, trust, and somebody that looks good is a great indicator of how good a practitioner is. If you can’t find a trusted name from a close friend or family member or you don’t want anybody to know then check out independent review websites such as Google reviews or Save Face. These are a great way to gage client feedback from a mixture of different people.
Now that you are one step closer to choosing the right practitioner there are several things you need to consider. Firstly who are they? What qualifications do they have? How long have they been practising? Are they a registered nurse prescriber? These are all questions you should be able to discuss with your chosen practitioner. Be wary of practitioners that are very new to the industry – experience is essential in this industry so make sure that you ask to see some genuine before and after photographs or check client feedback.
Social media is often used to promote aesthetic businesses online. When checking through social media profiles don’t be fooled by profiles that have thousands of followers. Buying followers is the latest trend in social media, it allows a user or business to look more popular than they actually are. If you are going to use social media to help you decide, make sure that you look at the content rather than the follower count. Are the photos original or reposted from another user? Are the photographs linked back to real users? Read through the comments on each photograph to see what other clients have to say.
Price often dictates what treatments you can and cannot have. Don’t be swayed by the price of a treatment – you are paying for a practitioners experience, expertise and knowledge. Practitioners who constantly offer discounted prices or deals that seem too good to be true often are. If your chosen practitioner is slightly more expensive than you can afford then wait. Delay your treatment by a couple of weeks until you can, don’t risk your face to save a few pounds.
Take advantage of free consultations. These are a great way to meet the practitioner, check out the clinic and ask as many questions as you have.
Remember this should be an exciting time so be well informed, be safe and most importantly be happy with your results!
