Can you do a post about lip injections/implants? It seems like all the girls you post pictures of have these! Is this common? Do you do it?
Answer: I’m not an expert in terms of injections, but I’ve tried some and know some basics about it. I would say 80% of the girls in this blog have some kind of injections, most common are lips, botox and cheek bones. I’ve personally tried putting botox on top of my upper lip to give it a little bit of a pout. The result of that was very small and full effect was gone after 2 weeks. Such waste of money. Another time I put 0.5ml Restylane in my upper lip which my friends thought I was crazy since I have quite full lips naturally. The result wasn’t massive either, nobody noticed I’ve done anything and after 2 months it was all gone. Since then I decided I’m not gonna bother with enhancing anything again as I’m happy with my lips as they are.
What I’m not happy about are those little lines that appear here and there in the face, and since I’m getting close to 30’s I’ve already started with botox. I’ve put it in the entire forehead and between the eyebrows. I’m so paranoid for lines that I feel I want to use botox as a precaution rather than anything else. I don’t want to “grow” any wrinkles, I rather put up a shield of botox in. That’s my logic of it at least. 😉
I personally have nothing against injections, and would happily play around more if I had money to waste. I’d like to put in my cheek bones, just of curiosity to see the results. I know people who have done other corrections in the face, nose etc looking really great. But it all depends on the injector. I always research and try and find the creme de la creme of nurses out there who know how to handle these things. This is a labour of art, and some may be terrible at it although they’re fully certified. So never buy these cheap deals on injections or skipping the research bit. So many things can go wrong and I’ve both seen and heard examples of bad cases.
One last thing. I know it’s easy to become blind to the amount of injections, but try and avoid putting in too much. I feel there are so many girls out there who ruin their looks by simple adding too much. Megan Fox & Lindsay Lohan look old and swollen with too many face injections, and other girls fill their lips so much they look plastic. (And plastic does not belong in the world of elegance)
Less is more, so don’t get carried away! 🙂
