Dermal fillers are injected with hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a molecule also found in our bodies. Since not all of us were born with full lips, there are many who seek for available enhancement options like lip injections. Lip filler is a quick and easy way to volumize the lip area to create fuller looking lips. Since most dermal fillers are made up of HA, it plumps the area by placing moisture.
COMMON SIDE EFFECTS
The lip filler procedure is a quick and easy process. The common side effects are minor and as follows:
- Swelling of the lips and surrounding area within 24 to 48 hours. This is just a normal bodily reaction when injected with a foreign substance.
- The lips may be tender to touch and mouth movement may create a sharp sensation.
- Feeling a bump inside the lip after the procedure is normal and will subside within 2 to 3 weeks.
- Bruising on the injected area. The lips are known to be a very sensitive part of the face.
It is common to have bruising and can be reduced by preparing yourself before and after the treatment.
During the first 24 to 48 hours after the treatment, the patient may experience swelling and tenderness on the lips. Applying ice for the first 24 hours can help relieve the feeling of discomfort. When sleeping, the head should be elevated on the first time to reduce any swelling. It is very important to patient with the full result as it takes 2 weeks for the lip fillers to fully be settled. The healing and recovery per individual varies.
