Frequently asked questions at Lulu Cosmetics
HOW OFTEN CAN I GET LIP FILLER?
This is on a case by case basis depending on how much filler you have previously had and if this was your first time having filler. If you have had filler with ourselves, we would recommend getting in contact and we can advise from here. As a minimum, the lips cannot be treated within 4 weeks of injecting as a safety precaution.
CAN I HAVE BETWEEN 0.5ML AND 1ML?
Yes! However, filler treatments are paid per syringe so you will still be required to pay for a 1ml treatment as we cannot use any left over filler on another client! We often inject until we feel the lips look perfect and allow clients to have a look and decide if they would like to use the full syringe. This is discussed during your lip enhancement treatment. If you are unsure how much to book for, please send us an email with a few images and a description of what you are hoping to achieve and we will assist in any way possible!
WHY DO YOU NOT OFFER 2ML LIP ENHANCEMENTS?
We personally only offer a maximum of 1ml per lip enhancement treatment as we feel this is a safe amount of filler to inject in one sitting. Any more than this may increase swelling, complications and risks the safety of our clients which is always at the forefront of our treatments at Lulu Cosmetics.
WHAT BRANDS OF FILLER DO YOU USE?
Over the past 5 years, Tallulah has tried and tested many aesthetic brands and has found brands including Restylane and Juvederm deliver reliable, long lasting and beautiful results. We use a range of other reputable brands for our dermal filler treatments that we believe are the best for our clients through extensive research and testing.
HOW LONG DOES LIP FILLER LAST?
On a set of virgin lips, we estimate 0.5ml will last between 4-6 months whereas 1ml can last between 9-12 months however this is completely individual to each client as filler is naturally broken down by our metabolism. As each client has a different metabolism and lifestyle, we can never predict exactly how long your filler will last. However, subsequent lip appointments may increase the durability of your lip filler treatment. Often once clients have reached their desired size, they typically re-attend the client once every 12-18 months to maintain the shape, size and definition.
DO YOU USE NUMBING FOR BOTOX?
No! This is a very quick, pain-free procedure using an extremely fine needle so this does not require numbing.
HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
As with lip filler, BOTOX lasts a different amount of time on every client dependant on metabolism, lifestyle and general muscle anatomy. We estimate botox to last between 4-6 months but this will be discussed at your appointment. If you are an avid gym goer, and sweat most days, or you are particularly expressive, you may find that your BOTOX treatment requires more frequent top ups.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICROBLADING AND NANOBLADING?
To the client, a Nanoblading treatment and Microblading treatment will feel almost identical. Both treatments are performed with a manual hand-piece rather than an electronically powered machine. Nanoblading simply uses a thinner blade with a lower density giving slightly thinner, more natural Nano hairstrokes.
HOW LONG DOES SPMU MAKEUP LAST?
Although we can estimate how long your treatment will last, a key element to SPMU longevity is the aftercare. If you follow the aftercare advice given both immediately after and long term, you will likely have prolonged results from your treatment. If you protect the brows from the sun/UV exposure i.e do not use sun beds or sunbathe without covering the brows, if you avoid using skincare with active ingredients directly on the brows, and avoid exfoliating the brow area both chemically and manually, then you will most likely get longer from your SPMU treatment. However, a clients natural skin type also effects this. The oilier the skin, the more frequently you will require top ups as SPMU is only implanted in the epidermis of the skin (the very upper level). You will be made aware of this at your treatment with an estimation of how long the brows will last.
WHAT ARE WATERCOLOUR LIPS?
This is a SPMU technique to create an overall soft tint on the lips. It is great for clients who have uneven pigmentation on their lips, those who have lost their natural lip line or those simply wanting to change the tone of their lips. Creating an overall tint can make the lips appear fuller and more hydrated.
DOES SPMU HURT?!
No! When done correctly, this treatment should not be painful. Both Nanoblading and our digital techniques use pre-numbing and numbing during. You may feel the odd hair-stroke or bit of shading but you should not be in pain.
