How much have you paid for lip glosses, enhancing serums, and other products promising fuller, plumper, and more luscious lips? If you’ve spent an arm and a leg at your favorite beauty supply store and haven’t achieved long-term results, you’ve probably considered lip fillers.
Lip fillers are the most popular way to increase your lips size in the most non-invasive way possible. The results are natural-looking and have a quicker recovery time than surgery. The procedure involves injecting one of several different types of fillers into the lips.
As we age, we naturally lose collagen and fat. This leads to thinness and sagging in the face, including the lips. Lips fillers work by replacing the last collagen and fat. Lip injections provide a safe, convenient way to enhance the lips, whether you’re seeking the perfect pout or wish to combat age-related issues. But the most common question asked is, “how long do lip fillers last?”
What Are Lip Fillers?
There are different types of fillers designed to treat different issues and work better for different parts of the face. When it comes to lip fillers, the most flattering and practical are Juvéderm® and Restylane® products. Juvéderm® produces a greater increase in total lip volume and works great for definition and helping to fill lines and wrinkles. Restylane® is usually used when the patient wants slightly firmer, more sculpting lips with a more subtle increase in volume.
What Are Lip Fillers Made Of?
While fillers all vary in consistency, most of them have one thing in common: they’re composed of a naturally derived compound called hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is found throughout the human body and is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated and plump. HA can also stimulate the body’s production of collagen and improve the skin’s ability to store water molecules.
How Long Do Lips Fillers Last?
Lip fillers typically last 12 to 18 months. However, it depends on your age and how fast your body breaks down calories into energy. It also depends on what kind of filler is used for your lip augmentation and how much filler is injected.
