How Long Do Lip Injections Last?

Lip filler or lip injections are a quick, popular way to increase the size of lips and make them look fuller. Filler is a minimally invasive treatment, and recovery time is comparatively far less than surgery. In this procedure a substance is injected into the lips to make them look plumper, smooth out lines, and add hydration.

With age, our lips lose fat and collagen. This can result in the lips looking thinner or lacking the oomph they once had. Lip filler treatment is designed to help individuals regain that lost collagen and/or fat. However, before undergoing lip filler treatment, you should have some background knowledge about it. In this article we’re covering details about the treatment, including tips for long-lasting results. 

Science behind long-lasting lip fillers

Lip injections provide immediate results. However, the lasting power of lip filler varies according to the patient’s metabolism and the product used for the treatment. The results of lip injections where fillers are hyaluronic acid-based will likely last from 6 to 9 months.

Lip filler might begin to wear off within three to four months of the treatment because of lip movement. For this reason most of the individuals go for regular maintenance or touch-ups before the filler metabolizes completely. Following, you’ll learn more about how to facilitate longer-lasting results of lip filler treatment. 

Preparing for lip injections treatment

Before receiving lip filler, patients are advised to avoid aspirin, fish oil, and blood thinners. These medications or supplements increase the chances of bruises post-procedure. In addition, patients should moisturize their lips and stay hydrated. It’s best to also avoid intake of spicy foods, as they may irritate the delicate skin of the lips.

Include a lip care routine at home

There are several at-home things you can do regularly to keep your lips looking super hydrated and plumped. For example, you can exfoliate your lips gently using a scrub to remove dead skin cells and have healthy-looking lips. You can perform this a couple of times a week. Additionally, use a hydrating lip product containing peptides and hyaluronic acid to achieve smooth and moisturized lips.

Hydration is key to maintaining the plump look that filler treatment creates. Consult your doctor to learn about potential ways to maintain a lip care routine for best filler results. Use a good quality replenishing serum that deeply hydrates the lips. The product should contain nourishing peptides and vitamins to boost collagen production and decrease fine lines.

Avoid UV rays exposure to your lips

Don’t fail to protect your filler-treated lips from the sun. Exposure to UV rays can not only decrease your collagen over time, but result in quicker breakdown of filler. 

Lip injections are undoubtedly one of the quickest and best to achieve healthier and fuller lips. To achieve the best results, it’s important to consult with a trustworthy lip filler expert.
