Lip Injections: The Dos And Don’ts

Our lips are definitely not sealed on this topic. The crazed lip plump phenomenon is taking young women’s worlds by storm. There are definitely ways to go about achieving the perfect pout, and we’ve even unveiled some of those tricks in a more recent blog post. However, the “Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge,” is not and should not be a method.
Just Because It’s Trending Doesn’t Mean It’s Trendy
In case you missed it this week, the Kylie Jenner lip challenge was a trending topic that involved mostly young girls, and even some men, in taking a shot glass to their mouth and sucking until the outside circumference of their natural lip line became swollen and bruised. While it’s been reported that Kylie Jenner is not in support of this alternate means of lip enhancement, the challenge has been titled so in an effort to recognize this Kardashian sister’s popular pout.
Kiss This Method Goodbye
So while there’s nothing wrong with supplementing your already existing features in order to attain your ideal image, there is a point when size really does matter, and enough is enough. Teens across the country participated in this challenge, with some even enduring serious injuries from the shot glass shattering during the process. There are ways to both naturally and cosmetically enlarge your lips, but it’s imperative that it’s done through the safest means possible.
Consider relining your lips, implementing a balm with hyaluronic acid or even schedule a consultation at The SHAW Center, but please just put this Kylie Jenner challenge to rest. 
Pout Perception
Full lips have been a hallmark of beauty more so in recent years than ever, but dramatic results are not always necessary. That’s not to say The SHAW Center doesn’t offer lip injection procedures that will satisfy your desire for luscious lips. However, aesthetic perception is key, and it is our goal to provide the most natural-looking results. No shot glasses necessary!
