We decided to research into the ever-growing trend of lips fillers in recent years, with the desire for plumper, fuller lips seeming to be on a lot of people’s wish lists. We have looked at topic’s surrounding this trend, such as to why and how they have become so popular, and how there can be problems caused. We have summarised these findings in this blog to help you with your own research and to help you make an informed decision.
With social media, television and celebrities all promoting their fuller looking lips, this has impacted fans massively, wanting the same outcome. For example, Kylie Jenner; who in recent years has become famous for her large lips, and who has even managed to create a whole brand regarding them!
There are many beneficial factors in opting for non-surgical procedures, like lip fillers which include the fact that they’re only a semi-permanent fix – meaning that you can achieve the look you want, without worrying about long term health effects on your body… or so it seems.
As this demand for ‘larger lips’ increases, medical professionals are now pushing for laws to be introduced which protect members of the public. The current laws state that anyone, anywhere, at any given time can administer the injections, meaning that without knowing, many have chosen a cheap, unsafe and unhygienic alternative to seeking professional medical care – often resulting in bruised, lumpy and uneven and infected lips. This is not the look promoted by celebrities throughout uses of social media.
Researching lip fillers online, there are some several options that people can choose from, one of which being self-injections. Averaging at about £50, the self-injected lip fillers can be dangerous. One woman became addicted to these fillers and ended up causing herself £1,200 worth of damage.
Another option regarding lip fillers online is the new cheap solution which is ‘sharing a needle with a friend’, meaning you get the treatment for half price. This is so dangerous, sharing needles is never advised and can end fatally.
