Results: Before and After Lip Fillers

Posted on August 12, 2021

Lip fillers enhance your biggest asset― your smile.

Knowing how patients look before and after lip fillers help you decide whether the treatment is right for you.

Your smile is one of your biggest assets. Your lips are crucial to your smile. Hence, your lips must look attractive.

However, not everyone is born with full, attractive lips. There are people whose lips are so thin, making their smile look odd.

This is where lip fillers come in. Lip fillers are a modern, non-surgical solution to lip-related problems.

In this article, I’ll talk about lip fillers, how they work, how they can help you, and the results you can expect.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are dermal fillers― substances injected into your skin to fill it. Dermal fillers fill lines and wrinkles. They also add volume to certain parts of your face.

As its name suggests, lip fillers are injected into your lips. By doing this, lip fillers make them look plumper.

Lip fillers are usually made of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a clear substance naturally produced by the human body.

Hyaluronic acid is abundantly found in your skin, eyes, and connective tissues. About half of the HA in your body is found in your skin. HA has several uses.

For one, its main purpose is to retain water that lubricates your tissues. It also helps regenerate tissue. This encourages your wounds to heal faster.

In addition, hyaluronic acid can decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Lip fillers that contain hyaluronic acid can add volume to your lips.

For these reasons, the gold-standard fillers used at my clinic have hyaluronic acid. These FDA-approved HA fillers gave my patients the results they want.

How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers work by promoting your skin’s hyaluronic acid levels. As a result, dermal fillers have many positive effects.

To begin with, dermal fillers revitalise your skin, making you look younger. They also add volume to certain parts of your face (e.g. lips, cheeks).

Moreover, they immediately reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you smoother skin. Contrary to popular belief, dermal fillers do not change how your facial expressions look.

Dermal fillers are safe to use. Though it involves some risks like redness and swelling, dermal fillers are tissue-friendly. As you age, dermal fillers allow you to maintain a younger appearance subtly.

However, dermal fillers are not permanent. One treatment can last from several months to a year. Its duration varies per person.

Lip Filler Results

Lip fillers do several things for your lips. Here are the things lip fillers can do for you:

Control Your Lip’s Volume

The number of lip fillers injected into your lips can be easily controlled. As a result, your doctor has great control over how much volume is added to your lips.

Flexible Treatment Pace

Natural lip fillers can be injected gradually. Depending on your goals, you can have several appointments until you achieve your goals.

Bumps and Lumps Can be Dissolved

Sometimes, lip movements can create bumps and lumps. Hyaluronic acid lip injection easily dissolves in case this happens.

Produce Less Swelling

The lip fillers used at my clinic produce less swelling compared to other types of fillers.

No Bruising

Combined with my cannula technique, the lip filler treatment at my clinic produces no bruising. This is a great benefit because most lip filler treatments produce bruises.

Long-Lasting Results

The results of a lip filler treatment are reasonably long-lasting. However, they are not permanent. A lip filler treatment can last for up to one year. After this, you need to get lip fillers again

Less Allergy Risk

Since hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, HA lip fillers do not often cause allergies.

Lip fillers can do many things for your lips including making it look fuller.

Recovery

While 1 ml filler lips treatments are non-invasive, you need to set aside time for recovery. Here are the things you can do to recover faster:

  • Apply ice to the affected area to help ease swelling, itching, and other side effects.
  • Avoid strenuous activities like exercising for one to two days after the treatment.
  • Sleep with your head elevated to avoid complications.
  • Don’t put makeup on your lips for at least one day after the procedure.

Conclusion

Lip fillers are an effective way to have fuller, more defined lips. However, they are not permanent. Injected lips can last for six months to a year.
