The Khloe Kardashian Conundrum: Can Stress Alter the Effects of Your Fillers?

In a recent episode of American chat show Kocktails with Khloe, Khloe Kardashian claimed she had to get lip and face fillers dissolved after emotional stress caused complications. Is this possible and if so, how can you ensure optimum results? Let’s find out:

“I had to dissolve everything!”

It may be little sis Kylie Jenner who is known for her envy-inducing pout, but the third-born Kardashian has recently made some revelations about her own routine to maintain her glamourous image.

On a recent episode of her new chat show, Kocktails with Khloe, she claimed she had an adverse reaction, stating:

"I had to go and get [the fillers] dissolved."
"The doctor was like, 'I think that too much was happening to your real emotions”

This being a reference to the October 2015 hospitalisation of her estranged husband Lamar Odom after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel having taken a cocktail of alcohol and drugs.

Can Stress Affect the Appearance of Lip or Face Fillers?

There are a number of factors that can result in your lips looking thinner and your face losing volume over time. These may include:

* Emotional stress
* Lifestyle factors
* Trauma
* Natural aging
* Heredity
* Yo-yo dieting
* Smoking
* Sun damage
* Illness

But, can these factors affect the appearance of fillers as Khloe Kardashian claimed? Sort of.

Fillers break down naturally, that is why professionals recommend patients have the treatment repeated every 6 months or so in order to maintain the desired appearance. However, some people find their fillers break down more rapidly than others.
The speed of breakdown can be affected by a patient having a very animated face naturally or during times of great emotional upheaval (like your ex being hospitalised) where facial muscles are stretched.

It is also completely normal to feel some bruising, lumps or bumps for the first few days after a treatment. These are not permanent and will go away on their own, as will any swelling. It is possible that Kardashian experienced this and, when mixed with stress, resulted in her decision to have the products dissolved.

The 10 Rules of Injectables

Whether you’re looking for a plumper, more-kissable pout or to blend away a few wrinkles, there are a few basic rules you should abide by in order to look your best, including:

1. Take it slow and keep it realistic looking. You can always add more later.

2. Know your products. Whether Retylane, Voluma, Juvederm or any other product – each one will have different effects.

3. Stay hydrated before and after the procedure.

4. Avoid exercise or any activities which will increase the blood flow to the face for 48 hours after the procedure.

5. Avoid any medicines which may thin your blood for 10 days before the procedure (consult your GP, if need be). This includes painkillers, Vitamin E and fish oil supplements.

6. Sleep with your head raised for the first night to help avoid swelling.

7. Injections can trigger cold sores if you are prone to them.

8. Don’t massage or press hard on your lips with lipstick after your treatment as this can minimise volume.

9. Follow the practitioner’s care advice.

10. Always do your research and choose a qualified practitioner!
