How do Lip Fillers work?
To give your lips that plumper, fuller look, we have to inject them with a substance such as a Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler. Hyaluronic Acid is safe and easy to use when administered by a qualified professional – it is not recommended for home use. However, when a specialist carries out the treatment, the filler can add fine lines to your lips that are required to create your desired appearance. Not only that, but it also adds volume where needed too. For example, a top lip filler is great for developing balance.
Lip fillers aim to replace lost collagen and fat. When injected, these fillers are slowly absorbed and can be thickened or thinned depending on the look you most desire. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally present within us all. But, as we age, we will naturally produce less and less – similar to collagen and elastin proteins. Therefore, this depreciation leads to the need for dermal fillers to replenish our body’s supply, reinstating volume to our lips and adding that desirable plumpness.
Hyaluronic Acid fillers are biodegradable; they naturally decompose within the body exactly like the Hyaluronic Acid that naturally occurs. Therefore, there is no need to be concerned about inserting Hyaluronic Acid filler into your lips. They are safe and have been approved by the FDA.
What do Lip Filler Treatments entail?
Before the treatment takes place, you’ll have a consultation with one of our Specialist Doctors. Once they are happy, they will then talk through the procedure and make sure you understand the entire process. They will also discuss your options during this consultation, including the shape and amount of volume you require for your desired lips.
Then, during your Lip Filler treatment, a local anaesthetic will be applied to your lips to remove the potential for any discomfort from the injection. Next, the practitioner will administer a series of small injections containing the filler to your lips. To ensure the product is distributed evenly, they may also need to massage the treated area once the injections are completed to give you that perfect, natural shape!
Depending on the type of injection, it could take a set number of months for your next top-up. For example, Restylane injections give you 6 months, Juvederm = 6 months, Vollure = 18 months, and Volbella = 12 months respectively. Our LA Lips® typically last 6-9 months. Once they’ve naturally broken down, you can return for a top-up.
What are the benefits of Lip Fillers?
All in all, Hyaluronic Acid Lip Fillers provide the following benefits:
- More control over your lip volume – the amount of substance injected can be controlled, so the practitioner has better control over how much lip volume is created.
- The ability to choose your appointments – the injections can be administered gradually during different appointments until the desired result is finally achieved.
- Little to no bruising – bruising and swelling is significantly reduced compared to other dermal fillers, so there’s very minimal downtime following your appointments.
- Allergic reaction unlikely – since hyaluronic acid fillers are made from natural substances, they’re unlikely to cause any allergic reaction whatsoever.
- And fantastic, lasting results – the results are reasonably long-lasting but not permanent; you can easily get a top-up when the time comes.
Who is suitable for this treatment?
Before any aesthetic treatment at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we will invite you to our clinic to discuss your areas of concern and what you hope to achieve here. Then we can establish if Lip Fillers are the correct treatment for you and further guide you through any alternative options if need be.
Dermal fillers are used throughout the world and are very safe. In terms of the actual procedure, you may experience mild discomfort. When the local anaesthetic is administered, you’ll possibly feel a slight scratching sensation. However, when the filler is injected, the sensation should be removed; but it is normal to feel a slight stinging sensation. As opposed to more invasive procedures, this is far less concerning for you overall.
In some instances, we opt for lidocaine to numb the area; some people may have an allergic reaction. Therefore, it is vital that you tell us about any allergies so we are aware and can avoid any certain materials.
