Important tips for preparing for your lip filler appointment

When preparing for your lip filler appointment always come prepared ahead of time. Know exactly what you would like to achieve with your lip filler. Bring pictures of the look you would like. Research the provider as well and ask questions.

Over the last few years we have seen an increase in lip filler patients. The trends have gone from very full lips to a recent shift of more natural lips. Regardless of whatever style you prefer, there are certain things you should keep in mind when it comes to achieving the result you want with lip filler. 

Come prepared

First, come prepared to your appointment with the exact look you would like to achieve. Bring pictures of the lips you like and show them to your provider.

Communicate your goals

Second, communicate to your provider what areas of your lips you would like to look fuller, more defined, etc. Would you like the top lip to be smaller, fuller, have a more defined border? Do you want the top lip to be smaller than the bottom lip? Do you want to achieve a better balance than you have now with your lips? These are all important things to communicate to your provider. 

Do your research

Third, you want to make sure you research your provider ahead of time. Look at their Instagram accounts and pay attention to how you feel during your consultation. Does your provider sit down and talk to you? Do you feel comfortable with the provider? Does their previous work or the before/after pictures on the social media reflect the same esthetic goals that you have? These are all important things to pay attention to.  

Know the ingredients

Lastly, make sure that they give you the name, brand, lot number and expiration date of the filler you are going to receive. Keep this information for your own records. At Sage Wellness and Medspa in Plantation, FL we use hyaluronic acid products due to their quality and how well they are able to be utilized to achieve the look the patient wants. Also, hyaluronic acid fillers can be easily dissolved in the event of a safety issue or occlusion.
