What Causes Thin Lips?
Similar to lines and wrinkles on the face, thin lips are another key sign of facial aging that contributes to a less youthful appearance.
Thin lips are caused by many reasons, here’s a few key factors:
- Family Genetics: Our DNA. Some of us were simply born with small lips.
- Aging: Collagen and elastin breaks down due to the natural aging process. As we age our lips become thinner and smaller.
- Alcohol Use and Smoking: Various lifestyle patterns can contribute to loss of volume, lip lines, and wrinkles.
- Sun Damage: Going outside without sun protection on your lips.
What Is The Best Dermal Filler for Lip Injections and How Does Hyaluronic Acid Work?
There are a variety of dermal fillers that you can choose from. All are made with Hyaluronic Acid which is a very safe and naturally occurring substance in the skin. Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin retain moisture, delivers nutrients, creates softness, and adds volume. The choice of dermal filler for your treatment will be based on the length of time the filler lasts, cost per syringe, and the desired look you’d like to achieve. Most of our patients prefer soft, hydrated, natural results. They are rarely interested in the Kardashian/Jenner effect.
Most of the Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Teosyal® products tend to last around 6 to 12 months when injected in the lips. This is because they are metabolized much faster because we are eating, talking, and constantly moving our lips. Some of the more common Lip Fillers on the market today include Juvéderm Ultra®, Juvéderm Volbella®, Teoysal Kiss®, and Restylane Kysse®.
When Will I See Results After My Lip Filler Treatment?
You will see results immediately. There will be some swelling after your treatment so you won’t get a full picture of your final results until a few days later.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers dissolve naturally over time. Lip Fillers can last up to 1 year with optimal treatment by an experienced injector. This can vary depending on your anatomy and how quickly filler dissolves in your body. Touch-up treatments are required to maintain your results.
What Is The Expected Recovery Time After My Lip Filler Treatment?
Swelling is at its peak 1 to 2 days after your treatment. You may experience light swelling but it’s typically gone within 7 to 10 days. Small bruises can occur around the injection site, but they are easily covered with makeup. You can minimize bruising by avoiding alcohol for at least 48 hrs and blood thinning products (e.g. Aspirin, Ibuprofen, ginseng, omegas, fish oils, and Vitamin E) for 1 to 2 weeks before your Lip Filler treatment.
To improve the longevity of your treatment, we suggest that you refrain from gym workouts for 48 hours and avoid excessive heat (saunas, hot yoga) for 2 weeks after your treatment.
What Can I Expect During My Lip Filler Treatment?
On the day of your Lip Filler treatment, your expert injector will meet you in a private treatment room to discuss your aesthetic goals in detail. From there she will assess your lips to determine what type of filler is best to achieve your desired aesthetic results. Before your Lip Injections begin, your skin will be cleansed at the injection sites to remove any makeup or oil on the surface of your skin (very important). Now that your skin is clean your injector is ready to introduce the Lip Filler with a cannula or an ultra-fine needle (which may feel like a light pinch) into the treatment area. Lip Filler appointments typically last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.
