15 Feb Aesthetic Treatments for Self-Care: Lip Filler 101
Over time, our favorite features, like our lips, can become thin and lose their shape. And while true beauty lies within, asymmetrical, flat lips can quickly damper your self-confidence. Whether you want to restore plumpness, redefine your cupid’s bow, or enhance your natural lip shape, Koch Aesthetic Dentistry can help you with our FDA-approved lip fillers.
While you may have thought we were just your dental experts, we’re also highly trained and experienced in administering injectables like lip fillers and Botox. This February, the team at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry is discussing everything you need to know about lip fillers, including how they work, their benefits, and more.
What Is Lip Filler?
Lip filler is a type of dermal filler injected below the skin’s surface to plump, volumize, and smooth the skin. Lip fillers specifically are made up of synthetic hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring substance that helps the skin stretch and flex to reduce wrinkles.
In injectable form, lip fillers can restore lip size, smooth mouth wrinkles, and more. There are numerous lip fillers, but we recommend Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Vollure XC for patients looking for fuller, more defined lips.
How Does Lip Filler Work?
Before administering lip filler, your provider will numb your lips with a topical anesthetic. Then, with a small needle, the filler is injected into the chosen area on your lips. This can be the corners, edges, center of your upper lip (cupid’s bow), and more. Before your injection, our team will discuss your desired outcomes and tailor your needs to the individual injection spots.
Once injected, the hyaluronic acid plumps and volumizes your lips while holding onto vital moisture to create a pouty look. You’ll notice results immediately after the injection, but your final results may not be visible until two weeks after. After your injection, our team of experts will guide you through what you can expect, how to maintain your perfectly plump lips, and answer any questions.
What Are the Benefits of Lip Filler?
Lip fillers are popular in Birmingham, AL, and beyond— and for a good reason!
Some benefits of lip fillers include:
- Enhanced appearance
- Immediate results
- Reversible (If you don’t love your look, we can inject an enzyme to dissolve the filler.)
- Boost self-confidence
- Little to no downtime
How Long Does Lip Filler Last?
Lip fillers can last anywhere from 12 to 20 months, depending on how fast you metabolize the filler. Additionally, some fillers are proven to last longer than others, so if long-lasting results are your priority, ask your provider about our available options.
Regardless of the type of lip filler you get, the experts at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry can curate an individualized treatment plan just for you, complete with a lip filler schedule to achieve your optimal results.
