Should You Get Pre-Wedding Lip Fillers?

Fall is a popular season for weddings, and every bride wants stunning, supple, and flawless-looking skin on the big day. There’s a lot of planning to be done before the event, and beauty prep will inevitably be a major part of this. In fact, to many people, having amazing skin might be just as important as finding the perfect dress. You can upgrade your skincare routine with pre-wedding injectables, including lip fillers, from our NJ-based office.

Hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers will produce more dramatic improvements in your skin when compared to what standard facials and masks can do. With that in mind, it’s important to be aware of what type of fillers you’re having and when to schedule them before the wedding in order to get the most satisfying results. Injectables can even be part of a bridesmaid gift for your entire bridal party ahead of the day.

Here’s what you should know about having fillers before a wedding if you’re thinking about getting fuller lips or enhancing other areas. 

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Are Ideal

The advantage of hyaluronic acid fillers is that if you aren’t completely satisfied with the results, they can be easily reversed. They also create a soft, subtle, and natural-looking effect. HA fillers are thick, gel-like substances that are added directly beneath the skin in areas where you might want a little extra volume. They will also add structure or definition to areas like the cheeks and chin.

Get Fillers Early

One of the most important aspects of injectable treatments is knowing when to book them. When it comes to fillers before a wedding, earlier is typically better. While the added volume is noticeable right away, injections often cause some bruising and swelling, which can take a few days to resolve. Some people recommend starting the process as early as a year before your wedding so that you can find the perfect injector to work with. Not into planning that far head? You should give yourself at least two to three weeks before the wedding when scheduling fillers to allow enough time for potential side effects to resolve. The best time to get fillers done before a wedding is between three months and two weeks before instead of waiting until the last minute.
