Lip enhancement with dermal filler is one of the most common cosmetic procedures that can give you fuller, plumper lips, but yet not easy to achieve the ideal results. Dermal fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding volume, structure and changing shape. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth to give you the enhanced result. A most common material for lip augmentation is hydrofluoric acid.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Dr. Yuan has extensive experience with lip injection. Lip augmentation can be performed in our office on the same day of a free consultation with little to no downtime. You will be able to notice a difference immediately after one syringe injection. The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips. Before the injections, a topical or local numbing agent may be applied to ease discomfort or nerve block injections can be given before the treatment to completely numb the lips. After you have healed in about 3-5 days, your lips should feel natural and enhanced.
The amount of substance injected can be controlled, so you can discuss with Dr. Yuan over how much lip volume you want to add and shape you like. The injections can also be given gradually during different appointments until the results are achieved. Sometimes it will need more than one syringes to achieve the desired result.
Side Effects and Risks
Lip augmentation may have temporary side effects and should only last a few days. They may include:
- Swelling and bruising
- Redness and tenderness at the site of the injection
- Reactivation of cold sores of the lips or area surrounding the lips
- Lip asymmetry (parts of lips are different sizes)
- Lumps and irregularities in the lips
- Ulceration, scarring, or stiffening of the lip
- Allergic reaction causing redness, swelling, or itching around the lips
Is Lip Augmentation Right for You?
Before undergoing lip augmentation you should be in good health. You may not be a candidate for lip augmentation if you have:
- An active infection such as oral herpes
- Blood clotting problems
One Of The Best Places To Get Lip Fillers in Reading, PA
Over time, your lips can show signs of aging. They lose volume, and lines start to thin out. One solution to restore your lips to beauty is through the use of dermal fillers or lip fillers. This injectable treatment helps restore a youthful appearance.
How Does It Work?
A lip filler is a gel-like substance injected beneath the skin to reduce creases and restore lost volume. They are also known as wrinkle-fillers, thanks to their ability to remove wrinkles. It is a widely used lip augmentation procedure.
Many of our clients from Pottstown, PA, Collegeville, PA, Reading, and King Of Prussia go for this procedure.
Here are some other benefits of the treatment:
- Make lips look plump
- Diminish vertical lines
- Improve symmetry, enhancing cheeks and temples
- Lip injection can improve the proportion or profile of the face.
The lip filler we use is FDA approved, and cosmetic surgeons in the United States also recommend it. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a major part of the filler’s composition. It is a substance that is commonly found in your skin.
During treatment, Dr. Yuan will apply a numbing or topical agent to reduce discomfort on the lips. Some procedures require more than one injectable syringe.
What To Expect
Any cosmetic treatment will have noticeable effects on your body, including lip augmentation. By going for treatment with us, you are in the hands of one of the best cosmetic surgeons in the country region, Dr. Yuan. The process is fast, and you can have the procedure done within the same day of your consultation.
Our consultation is free and is a requirement before you can have a lip filler procedure. During a consultation, the doctor will determine if you are fit for the treatment through a checkup. The doctor will also take a look at medical history.
You cannot go through the lip augmentation procedure if you have:
- An infection
- Any sort of blood-related problem (diabetes, lupus, etc.)
Once approved, you can undergo the procedure shortly after. You will undergo cleaning before the application of the lip filler. One benefit of this treatment is that the filler is a controllable substance. You have the power to dictate how much volume and shape you’d like your lips to have. You can also opt for multiple treatments until you get the results you want.
As with any lip augmentation procedure, you might experience some side effects or symptoms for a few days.
- Swelling or itching
- Irregular symmetry
How Long Does A Lip Filler Last?
Most lip fillers will last somewhere from around 6 to 18 months. The first syringe of filler may last shorter due to spreading. Many factors influence their lifespan. To help retain the form of your lips, we recommend that you come back every six months. Some formulations can last longer, but they can only affect specific areas, and we cannot recommend them for everyone.
Other lip fillers use different materials such as fat or synthetics. These materials can last longer, but make sure to consult with us first.
