What are Lip filler Injections?
Lip fillers & defining the lip margins are among the most rejuvenating procedures. It’s important not to overdo the fillers in the lips to maintain the most natural appearance.
Lip fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance in our body. Fillers are injected into the lips to make them look fuller, more defined, and more youthful.
It is important to note that lip fillers do not have the same function as injections such as Botox. The latter is used to reduce wrinkles formed by expression muscles, whereas lip fillers are used to increase fullness and plumpness on the lips or fill depressed acne scars.
Who is a candidate for lip filler injection?
- People who have lips that have a weakly defined boundary that blends into the skin around them. Lip filler injection can define the lip borders by sharpening the natural lip line and defining the Cupid’s Bow.
- For patients whose lips become smaller or thinner as they age, the upper lip may become longer and flatter, and the gap between your mouth’s edges may increase.
- Women who want to give their lips a natural fullness boost. Lip fillers might make you feel better about yourself and your appearance.
- People who have Asymmetries in the lips. Moderately disproportionate lips, might cause an issue that lowers a person’s self-esteem that lip filler injection can resolve.
Lip filler injection possible side effects:
Lip filler injection side effects might appear hours or days after receiving injections. They normally disappear in a short time.
These are some possible negative effects like bruising, soreness, discomfort, and redness. Very rarely an intravascular injection would result in the need of dissolving the filler using hyaluronidase.
How long does a lip filler injection effect last?
Lip fillers usually last 6 to 12 months. However, it is dependent on your age and metabolism, and types of fillers as well.
