In the pursuit of aesthetic refinement, the concept of lip fillers emerges as a transformative art, offering individuals the opportunity to sculpt, define, and enhance the allure of their lips.

As injections delicately shape and contour, the journey with lip fillers unfolds as a celebration of self-confidence, individuality, and the poetic elegance inherent in every smile.

Welcome to a world where the artistry of lip enhancement transcends mere augmentation, becoming a testament to the nuanced beauty that lies within the subtlety of every curve.

What is Lip Filler?

Lip filler is an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment that renders volume and shape to the lips, making them appear fuller and plumper. The most commonly used dermal filler for this procedure is hyaluronic acid. However, there are a variety of other types of fillers that can produce comparable results. Because of safety concerns, these are less popular.

Lip fillers are generally safe and quick, and the results are visible almost immediately. The duration of lip fillers varies according to the type of filler. For example, hyaluronic acid fillers range typically last the longest.

What is the procedure for Lip Filler treatment?

The Lip filer procedure begins with our doctor injecting an anaesthetic into your lips to numb them so you don’t feel any pain. This local anaesthetic is usually in the form of a lidocaine-containing numbing cream.

He will then use a small needle or a microcannula to inject filler into specific areas of your lips, depending on the desired outcome. This can include the edges of your lips, your cupid’s bow, or the corners (ends) of your mouth — or all three, depending on the outcome desired. Your practitioner should let you know ahead of time which areas they intend to treat. The procedure usually takes between 15-30 minutes and two hours, though most treatments are completed in less than 30 in less than 45 minutes.

Lip Filler Swelling Stages

Day 1 (Post-treatment): On the first morning following lip filler treatment, inflammation is at its peak.

Cold sores are most likely to appear 1 to 2 days after lip filler enhancement. The upper lip will have a major projection and may be substantially bigger than the lower lip.

Day 2-3: Expect inflammation on the second day of lip filler swelling. Lip filler bruising, swelling, and bumps may appear about a day after getting your fillers. But don’t worry; it will begin to decline over the next few days. Inflammation is a natural side effect of trauma after receiving fillers.

Day 4: The majority of the swelling will go down, making it easier for you to eat and talk.

After 1 week: After about a week (7 days), the swelling should subside and your lips should be smaller than they were after the procedure. This is when you’ll start to see the treatment’s final results. The swelling stage of lip filler usually lasts about two weeks.

The swelling should start to go down about two weeks after you get your lip fillers. In case it doesn’t, you must consult your doctor right away.

After 4 weeks: You can have your lips assessed for symmetry and size four weeks or a month after they have settled. If the patient wants more filler, it can be done at this stage. However, if any corrections are required, you must wait during this time.

How long does lip filler swelling last?

The duration or how long does lip filler swelling last can vary from person to person and depends on several factors, including the individual’s body response, the type of filler used, and the technique applied during the procedure. Generally, immediate swelling is common and can last for 24 to 48 hours after getting lip fillers.

Mild swelling may persist for up to a week, during which the lips gradually settle into their final shape. In some cases, residual swelling or minor bruising can persist for two weeks or slightly longer, but this is typically minimal and can be easily concealed with makeup.

For how long does lip filler last?

The results of lip fillers can last up to 18 months, depending on the type. Basic fillers may have a lifespan of 6-8 months. However, advanced fillers can last up to 12-18 months.

Our doctor will explain how long the lip fillers will last. It is important to note, however, that everyone is unique. The amount of time it takes for fillers to degrade varies. This is due to the fact that it is also affected by your metabolism and lifestyle.

Does lip filler treatment hurt?

Lip fillers should be painless if performed by a skilled and experienced injector. Before the treatment, they will numb your lips. This means that the procedure should be relatively painless. During the procedure, you may feel some tightness or discomfort, but this is normal and not cause for concern. Your doctor may use ice during and after the procedure to reduce unnecessary swelling and bruising.

After the anaesthetic has worn off, you may experience some pain at the injection sites. This is normal and should only last 24 hours.

Side effect of lip filler

The following are the most common mild side effects of Lip filler:

  • Minor bleeding from the injection sites
  • Tenderness and redness
  • Bruising and swelling
  • If you are prone to cold sores, they may flare up after the procedure.
  • Lip lumps with an asymmetrical appearance
