Where Do Lip Fillers Go?

This article explains how lip augmentation work, how the lip fillers are dissolved, tips that will help the lips heal quickly and last long, and the frequent asked questions.

Some customers possess lips with good shape, structure, and with volume. It does not imply that they should not attain a perky pout. Some customers have undergone a cosmetic procedure to remove creases and wrinkles, add volume to the cheeks, and make a face look more attractive. In today’s world, people do not want to get old. Rather, they prefer to go through a cosmetic procedure to achieve a smooth and youthful appearance.

How Does Lip Augmentation Work?

When the lip fillers are injected into the lips directly, they increase the volume and size of the lip. According to De Boulle et al. (2013), hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body, is used in many lip fillers. It has some potential benefits for the body. Hyaluronic acid traps and retains the water from the body delivering a healthy- and good-looking appearance. It also shapes the lips, making them look more natural and attractive. It is important to understand what hyaluronic is to know how lip augmentation works. The sugar derivative is naturally produced in the body to moisten skin, joints and eyes. Hyaluronic acid can retain water and bind to water molecules. It makes for an ideal filler because of its moisturizing properties. HA protects the skin tissues, provides the best results after the customer receives a fill, and offers long-lasting effects. Some grams of hyaluronic acid are synthesized by the body every day. According to Boo (2022), iron and vitamin C are used in breaking it and then it is excreted into the liver. This process provides customers fresh skin and helps the body produce new bone cells. Hyaluronic acid is broken down, making the skin stay healthy. HA slowly declines with age. The skin tissues start to grow brittle and dry. It starts to lose its volume, and fine lines and wrinkles appear. When hyaluronic acid is utilized as a lip injectable, it allows for the intended position. It helps regulate the volume added during the treatment, making the results look natural, unlike collagen and fat injections, which are less malleable and thicker. The injectables that also have hyaluronic acid can improve lip texture, correct the lips’ structure and shape and improve the lips’ surface. It is recommended to add the volume until one gets desired results. The results may last after twelve months as the body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid slowly. After this, one can return and contact another injection if one wishes.

How Do Lip Fillers Dissolve?

Some customers decide to dissolve the lip fillers under some circumstances. Some patients realize they are pregnant after having the fillers, while others may choose to dissolve the fillers for their reasons. One important thing about stuffing is that it is temporary. However, it can last twelve months, and one can dissolve them anytime. It is safe to dissolve the filler when a professional cosmetic doctor conducts the procedure. Cosmetic doctors inject hyaluronidase into the injection site. It is an enzyme that occurs naturally in the body. Once injected into the skin tissues, it starts breaking down the hyaluronic acid bonds, speeding up the dissolving procedure that could take a long time. Cosmetic providers have used this enzyme for a long time to dissolve hyaluronic acid. According to Heydenrych et al. (2018), hyaluronidase is not only used to dissolve lip fillers. Still, it is also used to dissolve all hyaluronic acid fillers, such as fillers under your eyes, cheeks and any other region. When the customer decides to dissolve the filler, it is recommended to consult the cosmetic doctor first. During the discussion, the customers can share their options and expectations for dissolving the stuffing with the cosmetic doctor.

Tips That Will Help the Lips Heal Quicky and Last Long

There are tips that customers should adhere to make the fillers heal fast and last long. Customers are advised to only exercise for a maximum of twenty hours, making the fillers move to unintended areas leading to uneven results. The activities increase the blood flow causing the swelling to worsen. Luthra & Amit (2015)explained that drinking lots of water is also recommended to keep the lips moisturized. Clients should also avoid contacting the lips when brushing their teeth. The pressure applied during brushing may make the swelling worse. Customers should also avoid using lip balm and lipstick on the injection site for a minimum of twenty-four hours. When the swelling, pain, inflammation and bruising persist, applying an ice cube using a tiny cloth is advised to avoid direct contact between the lip and the ice that may lead to ice burn. It helps in reducing the side effects of the injections. Clients can keep away from kissing after the treatment individuals should avoid kissing. The partner cannot feel the filler, which causes bruising and swelling to the lips. It is a great idea to avoid some things that may make your fill take a long time to heal. Remember, it may only last for a while when you give the filler enough time to heal. It may make one incur another cost for correction of injection. Individuals should also avoid smoking and taking alcohol. The alcohol opens the blood vessels causing the swelling to worsen.
