Lip fillers are a popular treatment also known as lip injections, which are used to add volume, resulting in fuller and more desirable lips. The injectable filler can be used to plump up the mouth and rejuvenate ageing lips by minimising fine lines and wrinkles.
Who gets lip enjections?
Getting lip enjections is a personal decision. Pursuing your wants and desires for your body can be empowering.
To be considered:
- Be in good physical health.
- Have realistic expectations.
- Not have an active oral infection, including canker sores or cold sores.
- Many people who get lip fillers want to increase the size of their lips.
Why are lip fillers used?
Lip enjections restore or add volume to your lips. They don’t stop the aging process, but they might help delay the need for a more invasive surgical lip augmentation, like lip implants or a lip lift. They can also help you achieve a desired look, which boosts your self-esteem.
Over time, you may lose volume in your lips, which may be a result of:
- Sun damage.
How long do lip enjections last?
Lip enjections typically last 12 to 18 months. However, it depends on your age and how fast your body breaks down calories into energy (metabolism). Younger people tend to burn calories faster, so lip fillers don’t last as long.
