As you age, certain changes appear in your body and at the top of the list are wrinkly skin and lost facial volume. Aging also takes its toll on your lips as you lose collagen and natural fats – the two naturally occurring things that are necessary for keeping the lips fresh and plump. If you had fuller lips for the most of the time in your younger years, the volume loss in lips may not be that prominent. However, if you naturally had thin lips, the decrease in volume is expected to be way too obvious.
Thankfully, there are quite a few ways to help you overcome this thin-lipped problem and at the top of the list is Filler Treatment. Gone are the days when lip augmentation and lip rejuvenation were the only procedures to get desired lip size and shape. Nowadays, people are getting their desired lip volumes with lip fillers.
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are specially designed injectables used for redefining the size and shape of thin lips. Besides increasing the lip size, plastic surgeons nowadays are also using the injectables to smooth and even out, aged, wrinkly lips, and they have got FDA’s approval for this. Lip augmentation through fillers is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures around the world, which is equally demanded by the young and old women. Even a fair number of men also get Lip Fillers to plump up their thin lips.
There are different types of lip fillers that are used for plumping up thin lips and the most common among them are those containing hyaluronic acid – a natural substance produced by your body responsible for keeping lips smooth, fresh and plumped up.
How do fillers work?
Your provider will inject a certain amount of hyaluronic acid or any other lip filler into the lips using a fine, hair-thin needle. This will instantly add volume to the lips. Besides increasing the lip volume, fillers will also improve your lip structure and provide them a youthful shape. Though the effects of lip fillers are instant, they are not permanent, and will last for 5 to 6 months. After that you may need a reinjection to maintain the shape and size of your lips.
Are there any side effects of lip fillers?
When administered by an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon, lip fillers rarely cause any serious side effects. Common side effects of the treatment include slight swelling and bruising at the injection site. Allergy symptoms such as itching, redness and rash have also been reported by some patients, but this is very rare. However, getting the fillers from an inexperienced doctor or nurse practitioner may lead to deformed lips.
