When Kylie Jenner first posted a picture on Instagram with her new look, which included much fuller lips than she previously had, it seems like the whole world went crazy with lip fillers. The size and popularity of Kylie Jenner’s lips actually has passed the size and popularity of Kim Kardashian’s behind. Who would have thought such a thing would be possible.
Here is a before and after picture of Kylie Jenner. You can really see what a massive difference her fuller lips have made with her appearance.
So what are lips fillers? Well it’s a medical procedure. No over the counter product will give you the results that you see with Kylie Jenner.
What happens is, you go to the doctor and they take a needle full of something known as “hyaluronic acid” and put it into your lips. These dermal fillers or lip injections add shape and volume to your lips and can last up to six months.
Back in the day they used to use collagen but today they have newer stuff that is supposed to be safer and last longer.
Some of these lip fillers are called
- Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk
- Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus
- Belotero Balance
- Prevelle Silk
So how much do lip fillers cost? They typically cost between $500 and $700 and remember they only last about 6 months so you can expect to have to spend that about twice a year.
If it is your first time or you need more than just the one syringe it can even cost more. Basically the cost is based per syringe. So if you go in with some really thin lips like Kylie Jenner had and it’s your first time and you want the full Kylie Jenner effect you can expect to spend twice as much right off the bat. Then you go back to the normal cost of one syringe per treatment after that for touch ups, every six months.
