What are Lip Fillers and How Do They Work?
Lip filler injections work by physically filling your lips with a product comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the human body already. Hyaluronic acid (HA) draws water to the lips, making them plumper and fuller.
The dermal filler product used for lip fillers is a gel-like substance that physically fills the space where it is injected, thereby volumising the targeted area.
Just like any other area of the face, your lips can become thinner through the loss of volume that occurs as you age. Lip fillers are an ideal way to address this depletion of fullness and return your lips to their youthful state. Or perhaps you’ve always wanted fuller, sexier, more luscious lips but weren’t naturally blessed with these attributes.
Lip enhancement with fillers is the perfect solution for creating a more plush, defined look for your lips.
Lip filler is a treatment that is designed to last a long time. It’s not permanent though, which is a positive for most people, as they are not wanting to make a lifetime commitment to a cosmetic procedure, and they appreciate the freedom to stop or start treatments at any time.
The Lip Filling Procedure: A Quick Overview
Lip filler is a relatively straightforward, time-effective treatment that can have you in and out of the clinic within 45 minutes.
Your cosmetic injector or doctor will usually take as little as 10 minutes to perform your treatment.
The rest of the appointment duration is used for consultation to discuss what you want from your lip fillers and how they should look, and the application of numbing cream while allowing adequate time for it to come into full effect.
The visual effects of your lip enhancement treatment can be seen immediately after your procedure.
