What Are Lip Fillers?
Made from the same compounds found in the body, lip fillers can give some areas added plumpness. Most lip fillers use hyaluronic acid, although there are others that use different substances. Doctors and technicians inject fillers into the lips to make them appear fuller and shapelier than before.
You can get lip fillers for all kinds of reasons. The first is to increase volume. Not everyone is born with the genetics for full and plump lips. Lip fillers are a great way to accentuate your lips, helping to achieve the most volume without looking puffy or fake.
Second, you can get lip fillers to improve the structure of your lips. You may be unhappy with the current shape of your lips. Lip fillers can help to adjust the way they look, helping you to feel more confident.
Finally, you can use lip fillers to improve the shape of your lips and make them more “pouty.” This can be beneficial for anyone who has experienced thinning lips due to the aging process.
How Do Lip Fillers Work?
There are many kinds of lip fillers on the market today, each with various properties. The most common are those that contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body.
The way lip fillers work is straightforward. Doctors use a needle to insert filler into the lips to adjust their volume and shape. Once the filler is in place, it will stay in the lips for a year or more before needing a touch-up.

What Are the Benefits of Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers have a variety of benefits, both for your lips and overall well-being. Below are some of the most common.
Full Control Over Lip Volume
Before you get a lip filler, you’ll discuss with the injector how much volume you’d like to add to your lips. As the patient, you get full control over the size. Our injector can adjust the amount of filler up and down according to your requirements. Many women prefer to add volume to their lips subtly, often to replace plumpness lost because of aging.
In the past, many doctors offered collagen-based dermal fillers. But, those fillers often resulted in more bruising and swelling around the lips. Today, the most advanced lip fillers on the market use a form of hyaluronic acid, leading to fewer adverse reactions.
Achieve Your Desired Lip Look Over Many Appointments
Unlike a facelift, lip fillers aren’t a one-shot treatment. You can return to our spa as many times as you would like to achieve your ideal lip look. You may, for instance, want to add volume after your first visit or you may be happy with results immediately. The critical point is that with lip fillers, you have a lot of choice and control over how you will appear.
Lip fillers last for up to a year or more. Then the body absorbs and processes the filler. The good news, however, is that you can return for more treatment and have more filler put in at any time.
What Happens during the Lip Filler Procedure?
Lip fillers are usually a quick and painless procedure you can have at our spa. Before the doctor injects the filler, he will apply a topical numbing agent to the lips. The numbing agent is like a local anesthetic, reducing any discomfort at the site of the injections.
The doctor then uses a series of fine needles to inject filling agent under the lips in a controlled and deliberate manner. The treatment usually takes a few minutes. Once complete, you’ll be able to see the effects immediately. Doctors recommend that you avoid wearing lipstick or balm on your lips before lip filler therapy.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?
All kinds of people from all different walks of life can enjoy lip fillers. In general, lip fillers are suitable for people who want to enhance the volume or the shape of their lips but don’t want to undergo extensive surgery.
Good lip filler candidates are people who do not smoke, are in good general health, and who have a positive outlook on cosmetic beauty and medical interventions. Lip fillers can help to enhance your appearance subtly, helping to make you look your best to the people around you.
Good candidates are also people who are committed to good skin health. You’ll see the best results if your lips are supple and the skin is elastic and not dry.
What Results Can You Expect?
The great thing about lip fillers is that you can see results immediately. What’s more, the shape of your lips will remain for many months after receiving the filler, providing you with plenty of time to enjoy your lips. You can also enjoy the reactions you get from the people around you.
Lip fillers are also a work in progress. If you’d like to change the shape or size of your lips, you can at any time. Simply book an appointment with our professionals.
