Lip Fillers and Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a lubricating substance that is produced naturally in the body, with highest concentrations in the skin and joints. It helps retain collagen and increase moisture, elasticity and firmness to the skin. We use hyaluronic acid fillers and since this is a naturally occurring substance in the body, there is no harmful or adverse effects of the filler itself. Plump up lips and cheeks. Smooth wrinkles and creases in your face. Some people choose to get dermal fillers to restore volume to their face after taking these medications. Dermal or lip fillers are very common. There are many types of dermal fillers. In addition to “off-the-shelf” fillers that use synthetic (manmade materials) and substances that naturally occur in your body, healthcare providers can use fat from your own body. Healthcare providers call this procedure “autologous fat grafting,” where they remove fat from one part of your body and inject it into your face. Certain HA fillers, such as VOLUMA, are formulated to last longer, but are usually limited to certain areas, such as the cheeks. Synthetic fillers tend to last longer, as they are not absorbed by the body. They can be a great option for the right patient, but you’ll want to be ready to commit to results that will be there for several years—and choose an experienced, qualified provider whose aesthetic style you like.

When will I see results?

Results are seen right away and last months to years depending on the type of filler and the location. There are several kinds of dermal fillers. Your healthcare provider will discuss your options with you. As with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks, including infection, bleeding and bruising. Health insurance plans generally don’t cover elective cosmetic procedures such as filler injections.

What Should I Expect After Treatment?

After treatment, you can expect to see the results immediately. There will be a subtle yet definite change to your lips, with a very natural, fuller look. The results should develop over the following few days as any post-treatment swelling subsides. There may be some redness, bleeding, swelling and bruising directly after treatment.  Lips - they come in all shapes and sizes. There is no "one size fits all" for this area.  Some patients want to flip out the lips for a slightly larger look than they were born with; some want natural, subtle volume.  Dr. Brown uses different injection techniques that she has learned and perfected through the years to help give each of these patients just what they are looking for. Some Providers prefers to use a small variety of products in the lips depending on the patient's individual needs. She has tried several different fillers throughout the years and has seen better results with some more than others. Nowadays, the best lip fillers are all made of hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar compound found naturally in the skin. This compound works to bind and retain water, which keeps the skin plump and volumized. Restylane Kysse and Restylane Refyne are her favorite fillers for lip volume, but she can use others if a patient prefers. We can go over the options and benefits of each at the time of your procedure. The duration of hyaluronic acid filler injections is dependent on the amount of movement in the area. Because the lips are always moving with talking and eating, this area doesn't last as long as other areas of injection.

What Are The Side Effects?

Serious injuries and in some cases, permanent harm to the skin, lips or eyes have occurred. The FDA also warns against buying or using lip or facial fillers that are sold directly to the public. They are not FDA approved and may be contaminated with chemicals and infectious organisms. The only FDA-approved dermal fillers are supplied by a prescription for injection by a licensed health care professional using a syringe with a needle or a cannula (a small flexible tubing with a blunt tip that is inserted under the skin). Most side effects reported in clinical trials and post-market surveillance occur shortly after injection and go away within a few weeks. In some cases, side effects may emerge weeks, months, or years later. Common risks include: Bruising Redness Swelling Pain Tenderness Itching Rash Difficulty in performing activities (only observed when injected into the back of the hand) People should be tested for allergies before receiving dermal fillers made with certain materials, especially materials derived from animals, such as collagen.
