What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are substances injected into the lips to increase volume and modify shape. The most popular type is hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body. It reduces allergic reactions and has fewer side effects. Fillers can be injected directly into the lips for fullness or into the borders for a lifted look.
Benefits of Lip Fillers
Lip fillers offer advantages over other methods like fat and collagen injections.
- Therapists have better control over the amount of hyaluronic acid injection, making it more accurate.
- Fillers can be injected in multiple steps for optimal results.
- Bumps and unevenness can be easily fixed as they disappear with movement.
- Lip fillers have a short-term effect, allowing the lips to return to their original form if the client is dissatisfied.
- Minor corrections can be made after the initial injection.
- Bruising and swelling are minimal and heal quickly compared to other methods.
- No scarring occurs, and there is no need for a recovery period.
- Allergic reactions are unlikely due to the natural presence of hyaluronic acid in the body.
Lip Filler Before and After
Before the Treatment
To prepare for lip filler injections, it is advisable to avoid certain substances about a week prior. These include aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, and fish oil supplements. These substances act as natural blood thinners and can increase the risk of bruising. However, taking acetaminophen is generally safe and should not interfere with the procedure.
Lip Filler Aftercare
Following the lip filler treatment, it is important to take proper care of your lips to ensure optimal results. Here are some aftercare instructions to follow:
- Inform your therapist if you have any underlying medical conditions or if you are taking any medications. Lip filler injections are generally not recommended during pregnancy.
- To alleviate pain, swelling, and bruising, you can apply an ice compress to the treated area. Ensure that the ice is applied gently and without exerting pressure.
- Avoid engaging in activities that increase blood flow to the lips for the first 24 hours after the treatment. This means refraining from vigorous exercise during this time.
- Refrain from touching or applying pressure to the lips for 72 hours following the lip filler injection.
- Avoid hot showers and saunas for a period of two weeks after the treatment.
- For the first 72 hours, it is recommended to avoid consuming hot and hard foods. Additionally, refrain from using a straw when drinking.
By adhering to these aftercare instructions, you can promote proper healing and enhance the longevity of your lip filler results.
Are lip fillers permanent?
No, lip fillers typically last between 4 and 9 months.
Are lip fillers painful?
Lip filler injections can cause discomfort, but numbing techniques are used to minimize pain. After the injection, lips may be swollen and sore for a few days.
