What Are Lip Fillers and How Do They Work?

Posted by Michal Krupien on

In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the world of lip fillers, exploring what they are, how they work, and why they have become a popular cosmetic procedure.

At Injectual, we understand the importance of well-informed decisions when it comes to aesthetics, so we aim to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information on lip fillers.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers, also known as dermal fillers or lip injections, are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to enhance the volume and shape of the lips. These fillers consist of a gel-like substance, typically made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body. When injected into the lips, they add fullness and definition, creating a more youthful and plump appearance.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?

The process of administering lip fillers is quick and minimally invasive. Before the treatment, a thorough consultation with an aesthetic practitioner is essential to discuss your desired outcome and any concerns you may have. During the procedure, the following steps typically take place:

1. Numbing the Area

A numbing cream or local anaesthetic may be applied to the lips to ensure a comfortable experience during the treatment.

2. Injection

Using a fine needle, the lip filler is carefully injected into specific areas of the lips, such as the vermilion border or cupid's bow, based on your individual goals.

3. Recovery

The recovery period for lip fillers is usually short, with minimal downtime. Some temporary swelling and bruising may occur, but these effects typically subside within a few days.
