When it comes to lip augmentation, HA (Hyaluronic Acid) dermal fillers are one of the most popular treatments on the market. With the right approach, they can produce natural, flattering results and balance your natural features. At Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa, we offer some of the leading lip filler options and can help you achieve your most confident self yet using our best non-surgical treatments.
Juvéderm® Ultra for Lips
Juvéderm® is one of the leading options for HA dermal fillers. Juvéderm Ultra is a filler made from synthetic hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar naturally found in your body. It comes in a smooth, crystal-clear gel form that can be injected into the lips for natural-looking volume while still preserving your natural movements. Juvéderm Ultra can last for up to one year and you can opt for touch-up treatments as needed.
Restylane® for Lips
Restylane® is another family of HA dermal fillers and there are multiple options of specific HA fillers appropriate for use in filling lips. It can be used to add volume to the lips for a plump, smooth look that balances your natural features. Also made from biodegradable hyaluronic acid, Restylane can last for up to one year before it’s naturally metabolized by the body.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for lip fillers to settle?
Although you’ll see immediate results with your lip filler treatment, it can take up to 4 weeks for the product to settle in and achieve its final look. If you want to touch up your results, it’s best to wait until the product has fully settled.
What should you not do after lip fillers?
Make sure to avoid strenuous exercise for the first day since it can exacerbate swelling and bruising. Additionally, avoid taking blood thinners since these can also impact your results. It is also recommended you avoid dental visits 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your filler appointment.
When can I eat after getting lip fillers?
If you opt for a numbing cream during treatment, make sure to wait until it wears off before eating. Also, avoid messy or chewy foods for the first day so you don’t irritate the injection sites by wiping your lips.
Can I wear lipstick after lip injections?
For best results, you should avoid lip colors for the first day or two since certain products can be irritating or drying. You may also experience some tenderness in the area, meaning lipstick may be too uncomfortable to put on.
Does drinking water help fillers?
Yes! Drinking water can help your skin remain moisturized and also make hyaluronic acid lip fillers more effective. This is because hyaluronic acid attracts water to produce its volumizing effects.
Can I brush my teeth after lip fillers?
It’s okay to brush your teeth after fillers but you may experience some tenderness. Make sure to be very gentle when brushing your teeth and washing your face after fillers.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the body and it keeps your skin hydrated to help with skin flexibility and wound healing and prevent skin wrinkles and lines. It is used in many dermal fillers because of its hydrating benefits.
Do lip fillers hurt?
A topical numbing agent will be applied before your injections to minimize any discomfort so your lip filler procedure should be virtually painless.
