Fillers and duck lips. You probably know what we’re referring to. The women who went a little too far with dermal fillers in their lips and now have what we refer to as duck lips. We’ve also heard it referred to as trout mouth. Whatever you want to call it, that’s not the result you will get at Prime Medical Spa. We recently saw a client who had been getting fillers injected into her lips for the last couple of years in another state. The first time she came to our office, she was concerned about the loss of volume in her cheeks. Using Voluma in the cheek and temple area, she achieved beautiful results that looked natural and not over-done. Soon after, she came back wanting “just a little more” to her already quite voluptuous lips and we just had to say “No!”. Another syringe of filler or even half a syringe of filler would have pushed her over the edge into trout pout/duck lip area.
It’s very common for clients to think if something is good, more of that something is better, but sometimes it just isn’t. They lose their perspective. That is why we take pre-laser and pre-injection photos. Once clients see their photos and realize where they were and where they are now, they are more likely to appreciate their tasteful, youthful, “you look rested” result and less likely to try to do something that may not be in their best interest. We will do a filler intervention when necessary! Judging by some of the magazines we’ve seen, we’re pretty confident some celebrities probably wish they had been told no a few times. The client referred to above is very appreciative we didn’t inject more filler into her lips. She even gave permission to share her story in this blog because she realizes how easy is to go overboard and wants to warn others.
We value your business and will never agree to a treatment we don’t think is right for you. We’re about growing long-lasting relationships with our clients, and that doesn’t happen when a business is more concerned about making money than doing what’s in the best interest of the client.
