What are Dermal Lip Fillers?
Lip augmentation refers to the process of giving someone fuller lips. Dermal lip fillers fall under this category. There are many known methods for making the lips fuller. One of these methods is using instant plumping glosses or learning how to overline the mouth with a lip liner. However, dermal lip fillers last much longer. A common and safe practice is injecting hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps give your mouth more volume, change its shape, and enhance its structure.
Is this Procedure Risky?
Dermal lip fillers have a low chance of you being highly allergic to hyaluronic acid. The reason being is that this acid is a natural part of the body that isn’t foreign or could cause an adverse reaction. You can expect some redness. There’s less bruising and bumps involved with the procedure more so than older techniques. To take away the discomfort, we apply anesthesia to numb the lips before the process and can offer a numbing medicine after.
Who Isn’t Eligible for this Procedure?
If you have an active infection such as oral herpes, then this procedure is not for you. Having diabetes, blood-clotting issues, and lupus also makes you at a high-risk for this procedure. You shouldn’t go through with it if this applies to you.
How Long Does Dermal Fillers Last?
Dermal lip fillers are temporary. Some fillers last for six to twelve months, and others last up to a year and a half depending on the type of injection you get. The process takes little to no downtime because of how small the area is.
