How Long Do Lip Dermal Fillers Last?

March 12, 2017

Everyone wants those plump, full lips and a gorgeous smile, but not all of us were naturally blessed with that feature. Luckily, dermal fillers offer a safe and simple way to get a perfect smile without resorting to more drastic cosmetic surgery solutions.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Whether they’re synthetic or naturally derived, dermal fillers are an effective option for those suffering from a lack of volume in several areas of the face. They can fill out fine lines, plump up cheeks, and leave you looking younger and healthier in no time. Lately, we’ve seen a major leap in the popularity of dermal lip fillers. Using a fine needle, we can inject the lips with a smooth gel treatment to add volume, reduce fine lines, and define the border of your lips.

Dermal fillers work by mimicking the natural hyaluronic acid produced by your body. This acid is sometimes depleted as you age, allowing your skin to sag and your lips to lose their natural fullness. We can easily reverse this process plumping your lips up with dermal fillers. We use high-quality, safe ingredients to ensure that your results are never less than perfect.

How Long Do Fillers Last?

Unfortunately, the amazing effects of dermal lip fillers won’t last forever. The results will vary from person to person, but we usually find that the fullness decreases back to its natural size after 4-12 months. The results themselves are immediate, giving you fuller and more beautiful lips after just one treatment, but you will probably need to have a follow-up dermal filler treatment roughly one year later if you want to maintain your new look.

There are more permanent lip filler options available on the market, but these are often less safe and may produce side effects that can be more difficult to reverse. We find that dermal lip fillers offer the best results for a consistent length of time with minimal risk involved to the client.

How Safe Are Dermal Lip Fillers?

When the procedure is performed by a trained specialist, the risks involved with dermal lip fillers are minimal. There have been examples of less experienced beauticians carrying out dermal filler treatments that leave the client with bumps and migration of filler in the lips, but this should not be the case if you work with experienced experts like those at Lasertech Clinic. We use the best ingredients and trained professionals, so you can be sure that you’re always in safe hands.
