A full pout has long been seen as a sign of beauty. However, fuller lips are more “in” now than ever before. Lip fillers for thin lips have been rising in popularity. Here is what you need to know about this procedure.
Lip filler is a non-invasive, in-office procedure that enhances the size of the lips and can even lift the top lip, altering the shape and addressing signs of aging. In most cases, getting lip filler takes around 15 minutes and requires no recovery period. However, if you are concerned about initial swelling, you might want to give yourself the weekend to recover before heading back to work.
Lip fillers are a quick, non-invasive way to enhance your lips and change your look.
There are multiple types of dermal fillers that can be used to enhance the lips. In nearly all cases, these rely on hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your skin. The exact type of filler used will depend on which parts of the lips you wish to enhance and if you are looking for a definition, volume, or both. These fillers do not need time to develop; the difference is instant.
While the change is instant, keep in mind that roughly 20% of the volume you initially see is actually just temporary swelling. The true impact of your fillers will be clear in about four weeks. The results can last as little as 9 months or as long as 18, depending on how your body responds to and metabolizes the fillers. If you are unhappy with your results for any reason, lip fillers can be dissolved.
Getting lip fillers can provide a quick refresh for your face and can be easily combined with other microtreatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic and chemical peels.
