How do lip fillers work?

Lip fillers now most commonly comprise of Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body as well. This means that your body will not react adversely to its introduction in the lips. Over time these molecules are broken down and dissolve. The results of lip fillers usually last up to 6 months and then wear off without any side effect.

What to expect during the treatment?

It is a very quick and basic procedure with no considerable pain involved. Your doctor will apply a numbing ointment on to your lip. Then the injection will be filled with the required amount and injected into your lip. You might feel a prick from the needle of the injection but it will be very mild. You might also feel a tingling sensation as the filler enters your lip, but there will be no pain. After the injection your doctor will massage the lip to ensure equal distribution of the filler and prevent any lumps from forming.

No, they don’t. It might be a strange or tingling sensation when the filler enters your lip, but it doesn’t hurt. The only time you might feel a slight pinch is when the needle of the injection enters the lip. Even this can be helped with a numbing cream.

Results last up to 6 months. After that time they start to fade away but they do so without any side effect so you have nothing to worry about on that front. Some people actually find the thought of a 6 month commitment comforting.

There are different kinds of fillers available other than hyaluronic acid and the amount that is injected is also different for each patient. This means that it is not possible to say how much the treatment will cost without a consultation first.
