Kylie Jenner is from that family. She’s the girl who only wants to go by “Kylie” from now on, and her lips are trending. In fact, girls are risking serious bruising to get her big ol’ lips by sucking on bottles. Yeah, it’s weird.
Well, it turns out that Kylie isn’t just drawing on her huge, cushion-y pout. She has gotten work done, which was revealed on a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Okay, so you’re probably like “duh” and/or “hell-o.” But even if you knew or had an inkling, that doesn’t mean that people aren’t into her lips. Her lips have become a statement that can’t be ignored, and now that she’s revealed it takes more than sucking on something, we have some scary and helpful information for anyone who is looking to do what it takes to achieve Kylie’s kissable smile.
Most Lip Procedures are Irreversible
What does this mean? It doesn’t mean it’s permanent, so no Hallelujahs are in order. Most lip procedures are temporary, lasting for about five to six months. So, if you can’t afford the upkeep, you’re looking at a life of sagging, deflated lips. Unless you’re rich, it’s probably not a great idea. Do you want to look like this?
What about Restylane?
It’s true that Restylane is the most temporary and common, and there’s even an antidote called Hyaluronidase that essentially erases the work if you don’t like it. That said, it’s the most commonly associated with bruising, and would you eat things called Restylane or Hyaluronidase? No, probably not. Just something to think about.
Are you a millionaire? If you are, that’s so great! But if you aren’t (we aren’t), then prepare for some serious lip-related debt. Restylane can cost around $500 to $800 per syringe, and one to five syringes are usually needed per treatment. Radiesse, or the treatment that injects calcium crystals swimming in a water gel into your lips, costs around $600 to $800 per syringe, and you need about two syringes per treatment. Alternate treatments only get more expensive, not cheaper.
It’s Fine, You’re Beautiful
Seriously, it might be trendy to look like you made out with a hornet’s nest now, but let the fad pass. Your lips are forever. And hey, we’d kiss you.
