Lip Filler Injections
As men and women age, the shape, fullness and symmetry of their lips can naturally change over time. If you want to get back that voluminous pout of your youth, lip fillers might be the right procedure for you. Virtual Skin Spa in Long Island offers lip fillers for patients looking to achieve their aesthetic goals.
WHAT ARE LIP FILLERS?
Lip fillers are the injection of collagen or other filler material into one or both lips using a needle. Hyaluronic acid is one of the most common filler materials used in lip injections. When administered correctly, fillers can improve the shape, structure and volume of the lips.
HOW DO LIP FILLERS WORK
Lip fillers work by replacing the body’s natural collagen and fat that is lost over time. Injectables made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, aid in plumping and hydrating the lips. There are several different formulas and strengths available on the market.
ARE LIP FILLERS SAFE
Getting lip fillers is a safe, quick and minimally invasive procedure when performed by an experienced, qualified medical provider. Hyaluronic-based fillers are among the most consistent and predictable cosmetic treatments with a low risk of adverse side effects or downtime.
HOW LONG DO LIP FILLERS LAST
Fillers are not permanent and will gradually fade over time as the material is absorbed by the body. For most people, the results can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. However, every patient is different and regular touch-ups may be required.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Lip Filler?
The ideal candidate for lip fillers is someone who wants to enhance the size, shape or symmetry of their lips. Patients that have noticed thinning, dullness or wrinkles around the mouth may also be good candidates for lip fillers.
Are There Any Side Effects to Lip Filler?
Lip fillers take just a few minutes to administer and are a safe, minimally invasive procedure. Immediately following the appointment, it’s common for patients to experience minor swelling, bruising and tenderness at the injection site. These symptoms should lessen over the next 2 to 3 days and dissipate completely after 2 weeks. Alcohol consumption and smoking also should be avoided for at least 24 hours so as to not disturb the filler or increase bruising.
How Long Does It Take For Lip Filler to Settle?
Results are immediately noticeable following a lip filler procedure, although swelling is expected during the first 24 to 48 hours. In some cases, it may take 1 to 2 weeks for the swelling to go down completely. Most often, it takes 4 to 8 weeks for the lip filler to fully settle into the mouth and for the final results to be achieved. The final results can last anywhere from 6 months and up to two years, depending on the patient and the formula that was used.
