Do Lip Fillers Return to Normal After Treatment?

Lip fillers are a popular way to achieve a fuller, more voluminous pout. But how long do the results last? And what happens when the treatment wears off? The experts at Body+Beauty Lab can tell you how long you expect results to last during your initial treatment. When the treatment dissolves, patients will notice that their lips return to their normal appearance. The skin of the mouth and lips will return to its normal appearance without sagging or stretching.

This change will occur slowly; you won't wake up one morning to find that you've suddenly lost volume. As the filler fades, your lips may look somewhat aged as the normal aging process persists. It's important to note that aging still occurs in skin and tissues, so your lips now versus age 10 will look different, whether you use fillers or not. According to Wheeler, many patients, including me, naturally have asymmetrical lips and one side of the top or bottom may be larger or longer.

So yes, in most cases, your lips return to normal, whether your body dissolves hyaluronic acid or reverses fillers with hyaluronidase. If you're thinking about getting lip injections, be sure to research, find someone reputable in your area, and have them explain all the potential risks to you. Wheeler explained that since my lips are on the thinner side of the spectrum, it wouldn't be natural to inject a large amount of filler into them, especially in a single visit. A surgical lip augmentation is great if you've been injected before and you're ready for a permanent change.

In addition to increasing volume, lip fillers have a number of other benefits. They can help reduce wrinkles around the mouth and improve lip symmetry. They can also help restore lost volume due to aging or other factors. Unfortunately, it's not possible to make injectable lip fillings last longer once you've received them.

Your body will naturally metabolize hyaluronic acid and your lips will slowly return to their natural shape and size over time. Because the swelling is most prominent in the days after the injection, your lips may look “too thick” at first. If you're considering lip fillers, it's important to understand that results are temporary and that your lips will eventually return to their natural state. However, with proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy fuller lips for months at a time.
