What Is Lip Filler?
The most commonly used lip filler is an FDA-approved gel-based injectable made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the body.
Some popular HA options we use are: Restylane Kysse and Restylane Contour – commonly used for plumping the lips and for smoothing wrinkles around the mouth.
How Long Does Lip Filler Last?
Lip filler usually provides results that last an average of 8-10 months — generally, results peak at the six-month mark and will start to dissolve in the following months. Results will depend on the type of filler injected and the speed at which your body metabolizes the substance.
A follow up appointment in 2-3 weeks is recommended to evaluate your results.
Do Lip Injections Hurt?”
Patient comfort is always the goal! Reducing sensitivity during lip injections is achieved by using a topical numbing agent.
Everyone has a different response to pain. However, the use of topical numbing agent combined with lidocaine in the filler, most patients find the discomfort very manageable and the result is worth it!
