Who doesn’t adore beautifully enhanced lips? Let us unveil the enchanting process behind achieving those captivating pouts:

1️⃣Cleansing and numbing: The lips and surrounding areas are thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils that could increase the risk of infection. Topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to the lips to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

2️⃣Poking: Using a fine needle or cannula, the injector creates entry points or small punctures along the lip border or within the lips themselves.

3️⃣Injecting: The filler is carefully injected into the marked areas or along the lip borders, following the predetermined plan to achieve the desired shape and volume.

4️⃣Massaging: After injection, the injector may gently massage the lips to distribute the filler evenly and reduce the risk of lumps or irregularities.

5️⃣Assessment: Once the filler has been injected, the injector evaluates the results and makes any necessary adjustments to ensure symmetry and natural-looking enhancement.

6️⃣Aftercare: Patients are advised on post-treatment care, which may include avoiding strenuous activities, refraining from touching or pressing on the lips, and using cold compresses to reduce swelling.
