How Long Do Lip Injections Last?

In the era of selfie culture, Zoom meetings and social media, it’s easy to believe that having naturally full and plump lips would boost your confidence and decrease your “getting ready” time.

Seeing celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson flaunt their voluminous, youthful pout, we can’t help but wonder how we can achieve that same look. Without having to spend extra time doing makeup or editing photos, getting the selfie-ready lips you’ve fantasized about is more feasible than you’d think!

More often than not, your favorite movie stars and Instagram influencers most likely have lip fillers. Whether they completely changed the size and shape of their lips or just plumped up their pout for more body, this procedure is not uncommon.

Lip Injections Are One Of The Most Popular Cosmetic Treatments

Being one of the most common cosmetic procedures around the world, lip fillers can help you achieve your desired look in no time.

The procedure is minimally invasive with immediate results. The most popular types of fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is naturally occurring in the body. HA delivers volume to the treated area, creating the fullness you desire.

All HA fillers, such as Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Volbella, and Restylane Kysse, are modified to last longer in the body than the naturally occurring HA does. Here’s what you need to know about each of these FDA approved treatments:

Types Of Lip Fillers & How Long They last:

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable HA substance that delivers more fullness to the lips and plumps up thin lips. Whether you just want fuller lips or your lips have thinned over time, this filler is a tried-and-true option for added volume and a smoother appearance. The procedure is minimally invasive and the filler also contains lidocaine for added comfort of the injection site. Juvederm Ultra can last up to one year with optimal treatment.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is another injectable HA filler that is more often used for augmentation of the lips and for smoothing periorial lines, also known as lipstick lines. It is injected directly in and around the lips to plump, augment and smooth the appearance of your lips and mouth area. This filler also contains lidocaine for added comfort of the injection site, and can last up to 12 months.

Restylane® Kysse

Similar to Juvederm fillers, Restylane® Kysse is used for lip augmentation and correction of lipstick lines. It adds fullness and body to the lips while smoothing any wrinkles around the upper lips. This filler also has lidocaine in it to reduce any pain during the treatment, and lasts up to a year.

All three of these FDA approved fillers achieve immediate, optimal and natural-looking results that last up to 12 months.

Whether you have lost volume in your lips over the years or just want a more voluminous pout, lip fillers are a quick, long-lasting way to enhance your appearance and boost your confidence without any surgery, extra makeup or photo editing.

Dermal Fillers: Types of Fillers and Tips To Follow Before Your Treatment:

Whether you want to look years younger or enhance your features, a dermal filler treatment is a great option to achieve your desired look without surgery.

In fact, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that dermal filler treatments were a runner-up for the most popular non-surgical procedures last year, right after Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin).

Most areas of the face can be treated with Dermal fillers.

Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Voluma, Perlane, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne Boletero Balance.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance found in your skin that helps it stay hydrated and plump.

HA fillers last between 6 months to 2 years before they are absorbed by the body naturally.

2. Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

Radiesse

This filler is FDA approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, cheeks and other facial contours.

CaHA is also a naturally occurring substance found in the body, specifically in our bones.

These fillers typically last longer than HA fillers, about 12 months.

3. Poly-L-lactic Acid

Sculptra

This FDA approved filler consists of a biodegradable synthetic substance.

Sculptra stimulates collagen and helps your skin rebuild it naturally.
Sculptra lasts up to 2 years and is used to fill in laugh lines, plump up thin lips, and treat deep nasolabial folds.

4. Polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA)

Bellafill

Bellafil is a semi-permanent FDA approved dermal filler made of a synthetic, biocompatible substance.

This filler lasts up to 5 years and can be used for deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, increase volume in the lips and to fill out pitted acne scars.

Type of dermal fillers

How do you select the right dermal filler? It’s best to schedule a consultation with a reputable Board Certified Doctor or Registered Nurse.

Tips To Follow Before & After Your Dermal Filler Treatment

Before your dermal treatment, you should avoid:

 

● Blood thinners and pain relievers (Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, etc.)
● Supplements (St. John’s Wort, Gingko biloba, primrose oil, garlic, ginseng, and Vitamin E)
● Any type of hair-removal process on the treatment area (waxing, bleaching, tweezing, etc.) at least 3 days before your treatment
● Alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours before your treatment

 

If you suffer from or have a history of cold sores, let your doctor know before your procedure as you should be aware that any needle punctures could contribute to a risk of another breakout or eruption of cold sores, reactivating the herpes virus.

 

If this concerns you, your doctor can prescribe antiviral medication to avoid or clear up any breakouts before your treatment.

 

Do not use dermal fillers if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or allergic to any ingredients.

 

You should arrive at the office with a clean, makeup-free face.

Following Your Dermal Filler Procedure

After your dermal treatment, you should avoid:

● Wearing makeup for at least 12 hours
● Using skincare products for at least 24 hours
● Strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours
● Alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours
● Extensive sun, heat or UV exposure for at least 24 hours
● Extremely cold or hot temperatures for at least 48 hours
● Touching or massaging the treated area
● Smoking and/or smoke exposure
● Any dental procedures for at least 2 weeks

 

To minimize swelling and bruising, apply ice on the treated area and take Arnica or Bromelain (eating fresh pineapple may help as well).

 

Tell your doctor if you are planning any laser treatments, chemical peels, or other procedures after treatment, or if you are using Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or other blood thinners as this may increase bleeding or bruising on the treated area.

 

If you have a big event coming up, it is recommended that you plan your treatment at least 3 weeks in advance for optimal healing and results.

When It Comes To Natural Beauty, Millennials Want Their Fill

Lip filler bucks county pa

Perusing through their Instagram account, Millennials will notice everyone from celebrities to their favorite influencers look picture perfect: a flawless complexion, plump cheeks, and supple lips – without a wrinkle in sight.

Much how Millennials rely on filters to look their best in daily selfies, Dermal fillers, Botox, lip filler & injectables can help them achieve the same thing in real life.

In their search for perfection, Millennials look to dermal filler treatments to enhance their appearance with non-invasive, non-permanent procedures.

When it comes to beauty augmentations, Millennials between the ages of 22 to 37 years-old want their fill. But, they still want to look natural and not like someone else, or worse, fake!

Thanks to the advanced technology, today’s cosmetic surgery trends have shifted from invasive procedures that significantly change the structure of your face to non-surgical natural-looking enhancements that are now considered self-care for Millenials.

The 2018 American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) Annual Survey Revealed that “there is more emphasis on early care or pre-juvenation in the ’20s and ’30s…and in 2018, 72 percent of facial plastic surgeons saw an increase in injectables in patients under age 30.”

Dermal fillers, Botox and lip fillers create a younger, smoother and healthier appearance by adding volume to certain areas of the face: lips and cheeks being most common.

Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles by smoothing out lines around the nose and mouth. They augment and restore volume to create a more plump, youthful looking you.

Which Injectable or Lip Filler Do Millenials Prefer?

With so many Dermal filler and lip filler products on the market, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you. Let’s go through the FDA approved products offered at Healthy Solutions Med Spa. But, before we do, it’s important to mention that anyone who is considering getting fillers or Botox  done should always get a consultation with a Board Certified Physician or Nurse Injector who can provide the right clinical recommendation.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA:

The sag is a drag! Unfortunately, as you age your cheeks lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area and correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. This product is popular with Millenials who are looking to add contour to their cheeks and a subtle lift to enhance their profile.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE:

Laughing has been known to add years to your life. It can also add a few extra lines to your face, along with aging. Millennials often opt for this dermal filler at the earliest development of lines around the mouth.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE:

Smooths moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles for up to 18 months with optimal treatment.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA & JUVÉDERM ULTRA:

Kylie Jenner launched an entire cosmetic empire based on her lips. While appearing on the cover of Forbes magazine might not be in your immediate future, a little more volume to your pout is.

If for the most part you are satisfied with your natural volume but want more lush to those lips, JUVEDERM VOLBELLA can help you achieve a subtle volume increase with just one lip filler injection.

JUVEDERM ULTRA is a better lip filler choice for someone with thinner lips and who would like a more significant increase in volume.

BOTOX

The magic eraser! It removes wrinkles from the forehead and around the eyes. Enough said.

How Millennials Choose Their Lip Filler, Botox, or Cheek Enhancement Provider?

When Millennials decide they want to enhance their appearance with Botox and fillers, they know it’s important to go to a provider that offers reputable products and provides great looking results, and they do their research!

  • Only go to a board-certified physician or registered nurse; both available to perform Dermal filler, JUVEDERM and lip augmentation treatments at Healthy Solutions Med Spa.
  • Read the reviews of the practice – on their Website, Facebook, Yelp and Google page.
  • Check out before and after photos on their site or Instagram profile.
  • Check out Botox.com or Juvederm.com for a list of providers who offer reputable products that are deemed gold standard in the industry.
  • Beware of providers that state they offer reputable products but are NOT listed on the find a provider list, as they may be selling them “Fau-tox” not BOTOX and JUVEDERM.
  • Avoid Groupons! Spend money on a quality provider that will get you the best results with the best products. These providers could be using expired or highly diluted products. Don’t skimp on products for your face.

Do Millennials Find Dermal Fillers Painful?

No one is ever thrilled about having a needle injected into their face, but much like my hair on a humid day, it looks a lot scarier than it is. Before receiving filler injections, the medical provider or nurse will numb the area making any discomfort more tolerable. And when all else fails, stay focused on the end game – you’re gonna look, G-O-R-GEOUS girl!

Dermal fillers and lip fillers are ideal beauty enhancements.

How Much Are Dermal Fillers or Lip Fillers?

They are relatively inexpensive at a starting price of $400, depending on the filler you choose and the amount of syringes.

They typically last anywhere from 9 to 12 months and can be reversed if you are not satisfied with the outcome by injecting Hyloranadase.

But reverse treatments are rare, as most patients are incredibly pleased with their enhanced appearance – so you can rid yourself of the fear of looking like you were attacked by a beehive, as each injection is subtle. You will notice an immediate improvement in your appearance, but it takes multiple syringes to achieve an enormous pout or chipmunk cheeks.

If you are looking to enhance your appearance with Botox or Lip fillers and you live in or near Bucks County, PA near Doylestown, Newtown, or Warrington then give us a call (267) 388-4692 to get started on your path to a more beautiful and youthful looking you.
