What is Lip Filler? – Some Things you Should Know About it
Table of Contents
The lip filler is an aesthetic treatment that consists of the entry of revitalizing substances that return its volume and natural beauty. Its objective is to improve the appearance and health of the lips because, over the years, they have lost their vitality and become thin, pale and dry.
What does Lip Augmentation Treatment Consist of?
Our innovative treatment to obtain plump and attractive lips is carried out with the HyaluronPen. We insert hyaluronic acid filler into the lips by pressure, without pain and injections. The key to the treatment is the reliable and quality product with which we work to guarantee a filling duration of up to 12 months.
10 Things You Should Know About Hyaluronic Acid Lip Filler
1 There are Different types of Lip Fillers
Lip enhancements are divided into surgical implants and non-surgical lip injections. The first is the so-called permanent ones, against which today’s health professionals warn since they are almost impossible to eliminate.
The second are those made with hyaluronic acid, and there is a wide variety of brands such as Merz, Teoxane, and Juvederm…
On the other hand, years ago, specifically until 2001, collagen was the main ingredient used in lip fillers. However, since the advent of hyaluronic acid, its use has been drastically reduced, as HA is a safer option and, unlike collagen, provides an instant plumping effect.
2 Where Should I do the Treatment?
First, it is essential to clarify that the Law in Spain prohibits the sale of medicines and health products subject to medical prescription over the Internet, so only trained medical professionals can acquire and apply injectable hyaluronic acid.
3 They are Safe and Reversible
If you opt for the logical option, lip fillers made with hyaluronic acid; you should know that they are reversible. We can dissolve the filler with hyaluronidase, an enzyme that melts hyaluronic acid fillers quickly and safely.
Typically, you don’t want to reverse the fill, but knowing that you can dissolve the filling if you don’t like the results is reassuring.
4 It’s Not Just About Making Them Bigger
Some people get lip fillers to help shape and balance their lips. For example, if the upper lip is much thinner than the lower lip, we can fill it in to help them out. Or maybe you don’t have a defined “Cupid’s bow.” Fillers can give you a limited, curvy upper lip. Or if your upper lip shows gums, a so-called gummy smile, filling in that lip can make your smile even more.
5 Dermal Fillers do not Last Forever
No, they don’t last forever. The effect is likely to last for many months, even well over a year, but after this time, you’ll notice your lips return to their standard size, at which point you’ll probably want to book a new appointment to get a better look again.
And above all, don’t worry. As the filler dissolves, your lips will not turn into sagging, deflated bags of skin. What’s more, it is a treatment that stimulates the natural production of collagen, so your lips will improve even when the effects of the treatment wear off.
6 There are Risks Involved
Lip fillers carry minimal risks compared to surgery, but you should know the risks before undergoing treatment. These risks may include swelling, bruising, redness, and bleeding at the injection site. As we have already stated, you must only perform this treatment with a specialized doctor to guarantee safety.
7 It is Advisable to Prepare the Body for the Treatment
A few days before treatment, it is advisable to avoid anticoagulants, making the area more prone to bruising and bleeding. Therefore, do not take painkillers such as aspirin or ibuprofen. It is also not advisable to drink alcohol.
If you have a history of cold sores, we recommend taking preventive medication two days before the procedure, as it could trigger an outbreak.
8 You Should Not Feel Strange After the Treatment
After receiving lip fillers, your lips may be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for the first few days. Your lips shouldn’t feel weird once the filler has settled and the swelling has gone down. They should not have bumps. They should feel normal, just more significant. If you feel uncomfortable or are not calm, talk to the specialist who treated you.
9 It is possible that they are not as big as you Expected
Many women come in with pictures of celebrities, hoping to achieve a similar size or shape. The reality is that the shape and size you can achieve will largely depend on your lips’ natural size and shape. It’s impossible to transform your look with fillers, but you can improve it.
10 Precautions After Treatment
For at least 24 hours, you should avoid activities that increase blood flow to your face, such as getting a massage, facial, or even going to the gym, as this can increase swelling.
They are lip augmentation techniques that have been available for a long time. But recently, their demand has been booming since full lips have become a desirable feature and are in vogue. Those who want to increase their lips usually seek to give harmony and volume to their lips.
