Lips, they are all the rave these days, especially after the infamous Ms. Kylie Jenner used hers’ to introduce herself to the world. Women everywhere are wanting to enhance their lips to get the perfect pout that every girl dreams of and every man loves.
Firstly, let’s understand the concept of what dermal fillers do. They can be used for various cosmetic reasons, such as contouring, to fill out wrinkles and creases in the skin, and increase volume and definition of the lips, cheeks, and hands.
Lip Filler, is a gel like substance (Dermal Fillers) that is injected into the lips to add volume, smooth lines, shape the lips and improve overall appearance. The goal of lip filler is to provide a natural, more symmetrical look for the mouth.
The truth is, filler isn’t forever, but don’t let that discourage you. Depending on the formula and how quickly your body metabolizes filler can last up to about 6 months and sometimes longer. Every person is different, but just know the results are temporary and you will want to come in for a touchup. Over time you may not need as many services as when you first start to build your dream lips.
The initial lip building is a process you don’t want to rush to achieve maximum natural looking results and the pout of your dreams.
Lip injections, much like any service that involves needles you can expect slight swelling and bruising. However, we recommend taking and antihistamine after your service to reduce swelling along with some icing. Bruising and swelling shouldn’t last more than 7-10 days.
Great Question! At The Plastic NP™ within Lemmon Avenue Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX many of our patients have different pain tolerances. However, prior to receiving any type of lip filler your lips are numbed with a medical grade anesthetic. Many patients feel little to nothing at all during the service.
Lip injections are usually a process and can typically be corrected with the right technician. Someone like Jen Pilotte of The Plastic NP™ truly has the training an injector needs to perform lip rehab on someone who has previously received filler somewhere else. Check out this article she wrote on lip rehab.
So the answer is yes, any hyaluronic-acid-based filler can be dissolved with hyaluronidase, an enzyme that melts away hyaluronic acid rapidly and safely. That way- if you absolutely hate the look you can most definitely have it removed and corrected at The Plastic NP™ inside Lemmon Avenue Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX.
Lip fillers can be used for more reasons than just wanting bigger plumper lips. Lip injections and lip augmentation procedures are for anyone wanting to improve the overall appearance of their lips. This could be plumping them, getting rid of fine lines, balancing uneven volume (in one or both lips), correcting the lining of the lips, or expanding the lip line.
When concentrated around the corners of the mouth, fillers can lift the edges of lips, literally turning a frown upside down!
