Lip fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatment in enhancing the shape and texture of the lips. The most widely used type of soft tissue lip fillers are ones made up of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by our body and mainly found in the skin, connective tissues and eyes. Its most important function is to retain water, thereby keeping the tissues well lubricated and moist.
Hyaluronic acid as a lip filler has been proven to be a great solution to improve the lips. The procedure is quick, and the result is immediate.
LIP FILLER PROCEDURE
The procedure involves multiple injections around the lip lines and will last for around 15 to 20 minutes. Most lip fillers have an anaesthetic included in their ingredients. However, the doctor can also inject an anaesthetic or apply an anaesthetic cream to lessen the discomfort associated with the treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Mild pinpoint bruising and swelling can be expected after the procedure. These effects will usually disappear after a few hours.
WHEN CAN I SEE RESULT
The result of lip filler injections is immediate. As the swelling and bruises lessen, the lips will also improve in terms of texture, appearance and shape.
HOW LONG DOES LIP FILLERS LAST
Lip fillers are considered as a temporary treatment because the body eventually absorbs the HA. So, you may need to repeat the procedure in 6 months to a year.
THE ADVANTAGE OF HA FILLERS
The most well-known advantage of HA fillers is the availability of a substance, Hyaluronidase, that can counteract the HA effect. As with HA treatment, the Hyaluronidase involves an injection to the lips.
OTHER LIP FILLER
Autologous nano fat injection can also be used as a lip filler. The fat harvested from other areas of the body is mechanically emulsified and filtered before injecting. Mild bruising and swelling can also happen.
