Lip Filler Facts
Lip Filler: Top 10 Things To Know
Lip Fillers are NOT permanent.
You may think that getting injectable fillers will alter your face forever, and you will be stuck with it for the rest of your life. But what happens if you don’t like it!? You can dissolve it!! Dissolving filler is a very simple and quick treatment. It involves no more than 1-4 injections of hyaluronidase into the area that the filler needs to be dissolved, meaning the treatment time takes up to only 10 minutes.
Results are immediate.
One of the best things about dermal fillers such as this Lip Filler is that you get immediate results! At first you may experience some swelling and bruising immediately after the procedure, so the results you see right away may not be the final results, you will still leave the office with more full, plump, and defined lips than you walked in the door with.
Are Lip Fillers Safe?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are FDA-approved. When the procedure is performed by an experienced medically qualified practitioner, lip fillers are safe! But, like any medical procedure, there are still risks.
Do Lip Fillers hurt?
The procedure is quick and relatively painless. Some people feel a slight pinch with each injection, and your lips will probably feel tender afterward. Most of the hyaluronic acid fillers used contain an anesthetic called lidocaine, which minimizes discomfort during injection.
Do Lip Fillers ruin your lips?
Normally after your Lip Filler appointment, your lips look extra full and no longer have lip lines or lip wrinkles on them anymore. As your lip filler is metabolized by your body your lips will decrease in fullness before taking on their original shape. They will not be deformed or oddly shaped at all.
How much does Lip Filler cost?
Lip Filler Cost varies depending on the product that you and your injector decide is best for you and your goals. Most commonly, a syringe of filler costs anywhere between $600-$1200 per syringe.
Can you use a straw after lip fillers?
After lip injections, you should avoid anything that forces the lips to pucker, such as drinking from a straw or smoking a cigarette. To remain hydrated, you should drink water from a cup or glass for at least 48 hours. This also means being careful when kissing and when eating. The last thing you want is to migrate that filler somewhere other than where we want it.
Are there different kinds of lip fillers?
There are two main types of lip fillers. One is known as hyaluronic acid lip filler, and the other is called collagen lip filler. Here at Stellar Aesthetics, we only offer hyaluronic acid lip filler. Hyaluronic acid lip filler is much safer than other kinds of lip fillers and can be dissolved if there are any complications with the procedure.
Do all lip fillers feel the same?
No. There are different products within different lip filler lines. For example the two main FDA-approved Lip Filler distributors are Juvederm and Galderma. They range from most malleable to least malleable. Our Nurse Injector is amazing at making sure to go over your goals with you during your consultation to guarantee the results you are hoping for!
