Lip fillers are used to improve the lines, volume and shape of the lips.
There are a number of FDA-approved options on the market, each with their pros and cons.
Lip enhancement is a cosmetic procedure that can help you achieve fuller, more shapely lips.
One of the most common types of lip augmentation are lip fillers, where a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid is injected to temporarily add volume to the lips or fill in the fine lines.
Found naturally occurring in the human body, hyaluronic acid has replaced collagen as the filler of choice as it is much safer and longer lasting.
Lip fillers have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their effectiveness and excellent safety profile.
How Long Do Injectable Lip Fillers Last?
The results tend to last for approximately 6 to 12 months depending on the type used and how the treatment is maintained.
Created with Optimal Balance Technology, Restylane Kysse provides long lasting results for the lips compared with other fillers, proven to last for 6-9 months, and some effects have also been seen at 12 months.
There are a number of hyaluronic acid fillers that have been granted FDA approval for use in the lips.
These products share a number of similarities, including: Injection: They are all delivered via a minimally-invasive procedure that typically takes 15-30 minutes.
Side effects: Hyaluronic acid lip fillers have similar common side effects, such as swelling, redness, pain, headache, and itching at the injection site.
It is important to have the treatment done by a medically trained specialist to ensure your safety as wrongly injected filler can have SERIOUS consequences!
With all these products, the side effects tend to resolve within a few days.
Downtime: There is almost no downtime involved with dermal filler lip injections. The vast majority of people are able to resume their normal activities immediately after receiving their injections.
