If your lips are thin and lack shape, lip augmentation with lip fillers is the perfect way to restore volume and fullness. But how long do lip fillers last.
Lip augmentation typically involves using dermal fillers to add volume and definition to the lips. It is a minimally invasive procedure in which an ultra-fine needle is used to make a series of small injections into the lips. Fillers can also be used to soften the vertical lines around the mouth, known as perioral lines.
How long do lip fillers last
How long lip fillers last varies, because it depends on the type of filler and the volume injected. Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC are the most popular choices for lip augmentation. Juvederm fillers are preferred because they are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that keeps the skin plump and firm.
Juvederm lip fillers are temporary, and last anywhere from 9-12 months. After being injected, the filler is metabolized by the body over time. Therefore if you want to maintain the results, the procedure will have to be repeated approximately every 9 months (learn more).
Benefits of HA lip fillers
HA fillers are reversible. An enzyme known as hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve the filler. This is especially beneficial for people that are unhappy with the outcome of their lip augmentation procedure.
If you want to get the most natural looking results with lip fillers, it’s important to choose an experienced, professionally trained dermatologist or aesthetician (click here to learn more).
