What Can Lip Fillers Do For Me?

Category: Blog

Do you want perfectly plump lips? You know the type – the ones that aren’t overly inflated, but just enough to look a bit natural – if you have naturally plump lips, that is. If you aren’t thrilled with the thin lips that you were born with or are unhappy that the natural aging process has thinned your lips out a bit, then you need to consider getting lip fillers. They are a valid option for many women and men who want a better-looking pout. They can help you look and feel better about yourself.

Types of Lip Fillers

There are two main types of fillers on the market that can be used to plump up facial features, particularly the lips. The first is called Juvederm. It’s made of hyaluronic acid and comes in the form of an injectable gel. Juvederm can be used in various places on the face, including in the marionette lines that form on either side of the mouth, in the cheeks in order to add some fullness and even in the lips. In fact, it’s been used as a lip filler for many years now, and its effects can last around a year, although this depends on how much has been used, where it’s been injected, and how quickly it dissolves in your body. (Don’t worry, the dissolving happens naturally and it won’t harm you when this happens.) When you have Juvederm injected into your lips, you’ll automatically see the results. There’s no waiting period there.

The other lip filler is called Restylane. Like Juvederm, it’s made of an injectable hyaluronic acid. It differs from Juvederm as it takes a few days for the results to show and those results won’t last as long. The effects will wear off somewhere between six and ten months after the procedure is completed. However, it’s a good option for women and men who want plumper lips. In fact, both Juvederm and Restylane have solid track records in this respect.

What You Need to Know About Lip Fillers

The number one thing that you need to know about lip fillers is how simple the procedure is. You do need to go to a professional who not only knows which fillers will work best for the results that you want but also how to get those results. There’s something of an art to having Restylane or Juvederm injected into your lips. The placement of those fillers in this area matters.

On top of this, these procedures are done on an outpatient basis. A local anesthetic may be used to numb your lips so that you don’t feel any pain while the fillers are being injected. You’ll be completely awake during the whole thing. Plus, since these fillers can be injected a little at a time, you can have complete control over the final results. You can plump your lips just a tiny bit at every appointment, so they’ll look natural.

You’re also less likely to have an allergic reaction from fillers that contain hyaluronic acid because they consist of substances that are incredibly similar to ones already found in your body.

What Can Lip Fillers Do For You?

Generally, lip fillers can provide you with plumper lips. You’ll look younger, plump lips are associated with youth. In addition, you’ll also feel better about yourself, and you’ll have more confidence. Everyone feels great about themselves when they think that they look good. With lip fillers, you won’t just think that you look good – you actually will. If you look at any of the Hollywood actresses out there, or even some of the most popular reality stars, you’ll notice that they have these full lips. If you want that look as well, then lip fillers are the answer.

Side Effects of Lip Fillers

There are very few side effects to lip fillers like Juvederm and Restylane. We already mentioned that they are much less likely to cause an allergic reaction. This is a very good thing! Once the procedure is complete, you might experience a little bit of swelling and some bruising in the general area of the injections. However, this tends to be mild. Any extreme side effects are very rare.
