What is Lip Filler Treatment?

Lip filler treatment is basically a cosmetic lip augmentation procedure in which a dermal filler is injected in certain sections of the lips for creating a desired volume as well as shape. The type of filler and the parts of the lips where the filler would be injected are selected by a professional depending upon the medical condition and requirements of the patient.

Different Types of Lip Filler

Although collagen was the first dermal filler to be used by cosmetologists, a number of safer, enduring and bodily neutral alternatives have taken its place these days. Hyaluronic acid fillers are considered as the most popular lip filler that can rectify the shape, form and volume of our lips perfectly thereby giving us an ideal pout. Common lip fillers available in the market include Restylane, Radiesse, Perlane, Aquamid, Juvederm, Artecoll, Particulated Dermis, Bio-Alcamid, Human Collagen, Porcine Collagen, Bovine Collagen, etc.

How Does It Work?

At first, your medical history is checked and assessed by the cosmetologist for determining the perfect lip enhancement plan for you. Your lips and surrounding area are made numb by applying a local anaesthetic. Usually, the hyalouronic acid fillers also contain a local anaesthetic agent called lidocaine. It makes the entire process absolutely pain-free. Now, the filler is injected in the lips very carefully by using a fine needle. A cold pack is also applied immediately to reduce swelling as well as uneasiness.

Time Required

The lip filler treatment takes as less time as half an hour to be performed and there is more or less no downtime. So, you can undergo it anywhere from your office to the chamber of a cosmetologist.
