Are you ready to have extremely kissable lips in time for the holidays? Lip fillers offer a noninvasive way to get fuller lips with no downtime and immediate results.
Understanding lip fillers
This type of dermal filler offers safe lip augmentation using materials that work with your body. Radiesse® is a nontoxic, hypoallergenic dermal filler that is commonly used, and it’s done entirely on an outpatient basis.
It comes in the form of an injection that promotes production of the body’s natural collagen. Collagen is a very important protein in the body that helps build bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Fillers like Radiesse help develop new collagen to treat wrinkles and folds on your face and give you fuller lips.
The lip filler procedure
Lip augmentation treatment starts with a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort (commonly lidocaine). Next, an antiseptic is applied to the areas where the injections will take place, depending on the amount of filler to be used.
Then the dosage of filler is injected into the designated areas, which can take up to 15 minutes.
When to expect results
The beauty of the treatment is that there is no downtime. You can get back to your normal day immediately after the procedure, with visible results.
It can take up to a week to get the full results of lip filler treatments. Repeat treatments will be necessary, but the frequency can vary. Waiting two years between treatments is normal, though maintenance injections in between may be necessary.
Swelling, bruising, and discomfort can be expected in the first few days, which can be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers. Sunlight sensitivity is also highly likely, so you should avoid direct sunlight for the first day after treatment.
