Things to consider before getting fillers

Things To Think About Before Booking

This is probably the most important thing, and it’s definitely something I wish I had done more of my first time. Read our reviews, study our pictures, and most importantly book in for a free no obligation consultation to meet face to face before booking your enhancement. I know it’s tempting to be led by price but you really want to make sure your practitioner knows what they’re doing.
It may take numerous treatments

When it comes to Jawline enhancements, I make sure all my clients take it slow to avoid overly filled cheeks that could led to you looking like your have a Lego head. Remember poor Lauren Goodger who has her jaw filler dissolved.

Before you even make your appointment, you need to think long and hard about how you want your Jaw line to change, not every one is suitable for Jawline enhancement.

We get a lot of clients visit us having visited other practitioners feeling like they’ve wasted their money as their Jaws haven’t changed enough or have changed too dramatically.

For really noticeable differences multiple treatments will be required.

Prep before your appointment

The week before your appointment it is advised to not take any aspirin, anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen or aleve, fish oil, multivitamins or vitamin E.

Each of these vitamins or medications will thin your blood and can cause major bruising post-appointment.

It’s why it’s also best to avoid alcohol or caffeine 24-hours before and after your appointment as this will help reduce swelling.

The procedure is super quick and the results are almost instant

The appointment usually only takes an hour and to be honest a lot of that hour is your in-depth consultation so I can get an idea of what you really want. Although you’ll be able to see the results pretty much straight away, do expect some bruising – they won’t be selfie ready immediately, although any swelling should go down within 3/4 days.

Be aware of the risks

There’s still a possibility of an allergic reaction and it could lead to an infection.

It’s not cheap

The thing is, Jaw fillers aren’t permanent and they usually only last for 9-12 months. If you like the effect and continually get your cheeks contoured it can get a little costly. Treatments starts at £250, and it can actually be quite an addictive process; it’s usually never a one-off, so consider how much you could be spending if you’re paying that much once a year and ask yourself if you can really afford to spend that on your Jaw line.

The effects can be reversed 

I’ve got to admit that the first time I ever got fillers, I ended up getting them dissolved as I didn’t do my research. But that’s the good thing about hyaluronic acid-based fillers  you can get the effects dissolved with hyaluronidase, quickly and safely, if you decide they are not for you. I am trained and insured to dissolve fillers in case of emergencies.
