Lip fillers are a subset of dermal fillers with growing demand. Cosmetic products are temporary and need maintenance to sustain the look. Herein, we discuss the frequency with which lip fillers patients should seek re-treatment, the benefit of this treatment, and the possible side effects.

In the fast-growing world of technology and social media, there is a growing need to be at your best and have a perfect look. However, many people might not know that social media stars and influencers do not just have it naturally; they, too, have to work a lot to be at their best. Lip fillers are an amazing way to get rid of wrinkles, making your lips look plumper and smoother. This fast-growing cosmetic procedure is growing in demand as more people learn about it. Nevertheless, how often can you get lip fillers? As aforementioned, lip fillers are temporary; they may need some re-touch to sustain their effects on the users.

Why Use Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are injections that add more volume to your lips to help you get your desired look. The fillers are a subset of dermal products used to plump up wrinkles and smooth lines on your face; usually, the lip filling procedure uses materials available in the body, including collagen and Hyaluronic acid. Although lip fillers might be used to help restore the volume of your lips, it is important to remember that they do not necessarily stop the aging process; rather, they help you achieve your desire. 

Patients choose lip fillers for several reasons; you can use them to delay invasive lip adjustments like surgery or restore your lip volume due to genetics, smoking, and sun damage. First, however, you need to decide what your lips look like; do you want them to look filled up or large? If you tell your physician how you would like your lips to look, they might determine the type of filler and the number of injections or sessions you might need. 

Who Can Get Lip Fillers?

Whether old or young, your skin can be affected by several things; the sun can cause your cause to get burned or look older. The same applies to your lips; dehydration and other things can have a devastating effect on your lips; getting fillers is a way for young and elderly clients to improve their appearance. Getting fillers is a personal decision; however, you must be in excellent physical health and devoid of active oral infection before taking the procedure.

Types of Lip Fillers

When choosing the type of procedure you need, you must be familiar with the different lip fillers available today. Collagen, naturally found in your body, was the most common ingredient used in most lip fillers; however, because it does not last long and can cause some allergic reactions, most healthcare providers have discarded it. 

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is another naturally found in the body; this gel-like substance is used to plump lips. The acid attaches itself to water molecules on the skin giving off the appearance of thick and hydrated lips (Dovedytis, Liu & Bartlett,2020). The HA lip fillers are absorbed slowly into the skin and can be thickened or thinned according to the patient’s desire. 

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

You can find several hyaluronic acid options on the market today. The amount of time taken for these fillers to absorb differs. However, the two hyaluronic acid brands mentioned above are the most common; they usually last about six months (Rohrich et al.,2019)

Some Hyaluronic acid brands are more long-lasting and do not swell, giving you a more natural look (Dayan,2017). The most lost-lasting hyaluronic acid lip filler takes about 12 months, while collagen lasts only about three months. Choosing the right lip filler depends on the time you wish them to last, the cost, and the type of injection used. 

How Often Do You Get Lip Fillers?

As aforementioned, most lip filler procedures are not permanent; you might consider getting your lip fillers boosted after the last one has diminished. Moreover, you can choose to adjust your lip fillers even before the last procedure is completely diminished to maintain the look.

You can get your other lip filler sessions as soon as bruises or lumps disappear. However, explain to your cosmetic doctor to get advice on the frequency your lips can tolerate.
