When Lip Fillers emerged into the medical aesthetic industry a few years back, our social media accounts were full of famous stars showcasing their pouty lips. Nowadays, more and more people opted to go for a more natural and subtle enhancement. Since the rise of dermal fillers, a lot of cosmetic clinics and med spas offer filler treatments with several product brands that can be confusing to a first time patient to choose from.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid in lip fillers
Many cosmetic companies have now expanded to producing specialized fillers exclusively for the lips. These fillers are derived from a substance naturally found in the body which are called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). In a laboratory setting, HA is cross-linked and transformed from a watery fluid to a cohesive gel with a soft or firm consistency. HA fiilers are hydrophilic, temporary and are safe for absorption in the body. They are used to add definition and enhancement on the mouth and face.
If the patient is unhappy with the results, a simple injection of hyaluronidase can be done to dissolve the fillers in an instant .
INDUSTRY’S LEADING BRAND
By the age of 30, HA production, as well as elastin and collagen in our body slows down. This affects the volume in the cheeks and plumpness of the lips. Dermal fillers can rejuvenate facial tissues thinning out and volume loss.
Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors trust only the industry’s leading brand Teosyal Global and Teosyal Kiss. Teosyal fillers are safe and has quality track records with extremely low side effects and great benefits.
HOW LONG WILL MY LIP FILLER RESULT LAST?
Lip Fillers may last between up to 12 months, depending on the amount of product used and other factors that may affect the longevity of the product. Fillers in the lips process the HA substance faster because this area of the face is very mobile.
There are 2 reasons why people seek a lip filler treatment. First, the lips gradually thins out as we age and would need volume. Second, having naturally thin lips due to genetics and would want a pouty mouths.
How are lip fillers applied?
HA fillers improve facial symmetry and textural irregularities. Some people with “gummy smiles” can be helped by applying lip injections so their gums wouldn’t show that much when they smile.
Most HA fillers are already mixed with a strong numbing agent like lidocaine to diminish the pain felt by the patient and to eventually numb the area to be treated. Another method is through cannula insertion. In contrast to the traditional needles, a cannula is longer and has a blunt tip with holes on the sides.
The treatment varies per individual and the application of the fillers will be according to one’s needs. Either you want a full and pillow effect or just outside the lip’s border, Dr. Sharma will administer the procedure. The process will roughly take 30 minutes. Post-treatment side effects may minor swelling within 24-48 hrs, firmness or lumpiness in the tissues.
