The Many Benefits of Lip Fillers
As people age, their lips tend to lose volume, making them appear thinner than before. Luckily, your lips don’t have to stay that way. Lip fillers are an effective solution to restore thinning lips to a fuller, more youthful appearance. Let’s take a look at a few of the benefits of lip fillers and why they may be the perfect solution for you.
Benefits of Lip Fillers
Lips fillers come with a variety of benefits. Some of the benefits you can expect with lip fillers include the following:
A Little Goes a Long Way
Many people think of celebrities or Instagram personalities with overblown lips when lip fillers are mentioned. However, you can walk past a dozen people with natural-looking lip fillers and not even know the difference. A good injector will use just enough filler to add some volume to the lips without making them look fake and overdone. For most patients, just a few millimeters of added volume is enough to refresh their whole entire face.
Lip fillers aren’t a one-and-done procedure. Instead, you can start small and build up the volume from there. This makes it very easy to tailor the results to your expectations, whether you want pouty lips or more definition in your Cupid’s bow. It also makes it possible for a skilled provider to treat a variety of patients with different face and lip shapes.
One of the most appealing aspects of getting lip fillers is that it doesn’t require going under the knife. Surgery entails incisions, stitches, anesthesia, and a long recovery period. It also carries multiple risks and complications. With lip fillers, your provider only uses a very fine needle and some topical anesthetic. The procedure typically only takes a few minutes. You don’t even have to take time off work to recover.
Lip fillers are long-lasting but not permanent. Results may last six months to a year depending on the type of filler used and your body’s metabolism. If your thinning lips make you feel insecure, lip fillers can help you enjoy months of uninterrupted confidence. And you can come in for maintenance treatment to ensure you keep those results. Similarly, if you decide you don’t like the look of your filled lips, you can simply wait a few months for your body to metabolize the filler or we can dissolve it!
How to Prolong Lip Fillers
It’s necessary to take good care of your lips to maximize the life of your filler. The foundation of healthy lips starts with a healthy diet and adequate hydration. You should also avoid smoking, as it can affect filler performance and contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Sun exposure and UV rays can negatively affect lip fillers as well, so consider using a lip balm containing SPF whenever you spend time outside. It will not only ensure your lip filler is long-lasting, but it also keeps your skin protected.
