Do lip injections damage lips?

They are safe, and the lip filling procedure is also safe, there is a low risk of complications or side effects. If you are not satisfied with your appearance, your healthcare provider may inject you with an enzyme (hyaluronidase) to dissolve the lip filler. One of the most common side effects of lip surgery is mild bruising and swelling. You will most likely experience this for a few days after the lip enhancement procedure is done.

Redness will also appear near and around the mouth where the doctor injected the dermal fillers. Redness will be reduced in a few days. If you experience severe prolonged redness, swelling, or bruising, call your healthcare provider right away. And yes, using too much lip filler product can permanently stretch the skin on the lips.

Fortunately, most of the possible side effects of lip injections can be reversed. The most common drawback of lip injections is overfilling, plastic surgeon Marc Mani told me. This gives an artificial look that only a few people really want. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase, so it's not a permanent problem.

In addition to standard fillings that last six to nine months, there are also more permanent options. However, these permanent options can cause serious side effects. Permanent fillers such as silicone can and often ruin lips permanently, warned Dr. Even if the right amount of silicone were injected, the body responds with inflammation, which can distort the lips forever.

Infection is also a risk, but very small. While lip injections are relatively safe and have a low risk of side effects, they are not suitable for everyone. Lip fillers are NOT for everyone, warned Dr. For those with very thin lips, they can make a big difference, but the more you inject, the more unnatural firmness the lips have.

When someone has lips that are already full, but need a little shaping, small amounts of filler can look great. With lip filler, inexperienced or uncertified physicians may incorrectly advise patients on how much filler should be injected or how often they should return to receive treatments. Throughout the lip, injections do not harm the lips, the filler used (hyaluronic acid) is a natural acid that is slowly absorbed by the body. From temporary bruising to permanent tissue death, lip injections are much more than meets the eye.

Enhanced lips can make your lips thicker and fuller, but it will still be you when you leave the doctor's office. Where the risk of causing damage to the lip can come from removing or trying to reverse the more permanent options for thicker lips. After another doctor recommended that she have injections in her lips every four months, this patient visited Grossman for her quarterly replacement. Any damage caused to the lips is usually due to poor technique created by the person giving the injections.

Dugar injects 100% soluble and reversible hyaluronic acid into the lips, which is found naturally in the body, since it is naturally produced biologically. The amount of substance injected can be controlled, so that the doctor has better control over the amount of lip volume that is created. It's crazy to think that any professional would risk injecting their lips with a filler that isn't approved by the FDA, but it happens. For those looking for elegant, natural-looking lip enhancement, lip fillers offer a variety of benefits.

Dugar himself If lip injections are safe and best for you, contact us below to schedule a consultation, Dr. After carefully marking the areas to be injected, very thin needles are used to inject the substance into your lips. However, people choose to get their lips done without fully understanding the side effects of lip fillers.
