Lip Fillers Give You Fuller Lips

Injectable lip fillers are a method through which our doctors can give you fuller, more voluptuous lips. Patients enjoy increased confidence in their appearance and a return to the fuller looking lips they enjoyed when they were young. There are a variety of materials and methods of injection that can be used, so there should be options available to meet your needs. While the results of a lip filler treatment typically last from four to six months, there are longer lasting options available. Consult with your specialist if interested in these options.

Lip filler treatment can provide you with better looking lips in less than an hour. In fact, many of the most popular treatments can be done in approximately a half hour. The lip filler itself typically contains a topical anesthetic, so anesthesia is usually not needed. Lip filler treatment is an outpatient procedure that can be done in a single visit to your assigned specialist’s office.

Collagen-based lip fillers are one of the more popular lip filler treatments. Bovine-derived collagen is derived from cows raised in a closely monitored environment, while human-derived collagen filler is harvested from humans, typically from cadavers or skin that is left over after surgeries. Those who are allergic to bovine collagen can typically be treated with human collagen with no adverse reactions.

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers last longer than collagen-based fillers. Hyaluronic acid is biodegradable substance normally found in joints and skin. When injected into the lips, it combines with water and moisturizes the lips while making them look fuller. Hyarulonic fillers are typically longer lasting than collagen fillers.

Lip filler injections are generally low-risk procedures. Typical side effects include minor swelling, bruising redness or tenderness. With proper care, side effects should disappear within a few days of the procedure. Contact us today for more information.
