Suction pumps are special devices for lips. They use vacuum pumping to increase the blood pressure in each lip and to pull them out a bit, making it quite an instrument to adjust proper lip length and value in a slow, determinate step-by-step way.

About The Procedure:

Before the injections, a topical or local numbing agent may be applied to ease discomfort. Sometimes, nerve block injections can be given before the treatment to completely numb the lips.  You don’t need to worry about this; this is something very similar and close to anaesthesia which you get while treating your teeth. After carefully marking the areas to be injected, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into your lips.

You would be given bucket full of ice to ease the discomfort, but also make sure nothing firm should be pressed against your lips, it will increase the pain as well as swelling.

One thought on “Everything You Need to Know About Lip Injections

  1. I am not really scared of regular injections, but these filler loaded ones scare the hell out of me. I love my lips as they are and even if I didn’t I would not have gone for this treatment. I think it looks great on Kylie and even Anushka does not look as bad now. 😛
