Lip fillers reshape the lips by increasing the volume of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The procedure decreases the lines and wrinkles around the mouth. In addition, the water retention capacity of hyaluronic acid increases skin hydration, moisturizes the lips, and gives them a more vibrant and smooth appearance.

How are lip fillers applied?

Lip fillers can be applied with needles or a cannula depending on the lip type of the patient. While fine-tipped needles are preferred for more prominent lip tips or the Russian filling technique to create Russian lips, the cannula method is used to increase the volume of the lips. If the lips are too small, a more gradual filling approach is preferred. After 

filling the lips with 1 cc filler on the first session, the patient waits for the filling to fit well. If more volume is needed, the procedure is repeated after 3 months.

Is lip filling a painful procedure?

Before the lip filling procedure, the area is numbed with an anesthetic injection through the mouth. Since the upper and lower lips are completely anesthetized, the patient does not feel any pain.

What should be considered after a lip filling procedure?

There might be swelling and bruising on the lips for 2-3 days. This situation typically ends on the 5th day. To reduce the swelling and bruising, the patient can apply arnica cream and ice from time to time. The effect of the anesthetic substance ends in 2 hours. It is advised to avoid contact with water for the first 4 hours, and not to put on makeup for the first 12 hours after the procedure. The patient should not massage the area unless it is advised so.

How long do lip fillers last?

Lip fillers last approximately 9-12 months. It depends on the patient's age, medical history, genetic factors, and type of filling. Repeated and gradual applications help the fillers last more.

Are lip fillers harmful?

Dermal fillings are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found in the skin and the filling material of the hypodermis. Since they are naturally produced in the body and are not foreign to it, they do not lead to allergic reactions. The body digests them in 9 to 12 months. Hence, they do not lead to permanent harm or change.

In which cases can lip fillers be applied? Can they be applied in the summer?

Patients over 18 who have thin lips but desire more volume, have wrinkles around the lips or want more vibrant and moisturized lips can make use of lip fillers. However, if the patient has severe illnesses such as connective tissue diseases or immunodeficiencies, the procedure is planned according to the patient and the disease. If you have a disease, please inform your doctor during the planning of the treatment. Since they do not cause sensitivity to the sun, they can be applied in all seasons.
