Are lip injections vegan?

Since most fillers, including lip and dermal fillers, are made from non-animal hyaluronic acid, they are considered vegan. However, like Botox, the law requires that they be tested on animals because they are classified as medical products. While the product itself is vegan, dermal fillers are included in medical products, which are required by law to be tested on animals. Juvederm is manufactured by Allergan, which is pushing to reduce and ultimately eliminate animal testing, and therefore the number of tests performed is minimal, but they still occur widely due to the regulation surrounding drugs.

Unfortunately, injectables like Botox aren't 100% vegan. Botulinum toxin, the active ingredient in Botox, was initially developed as a medical treatment and animal tests were used to test its safety and effectiveness. Dermal fillers, including lip fillers, are considered “minimally invasive” treatments and are therefore not regulated in the UK, meaning that anyone can inject them. This double-sided primer has a foundation to give your lip color a staying power and a cinnamon-scented filler that will make your lips more enviable.

Artecoll and ArteFill are examples of permanent fillers used around the lips to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, giving the lips a fuller appearance. Those who use collagen injections do so to replace their original supply or to provide volume to features such as the lips when they want it. In such cases, surgeons remove fat cells from the patient by liposuction or excision, from where they can be preserved before injecting or surgically placing them on the lips.
