HOW LONG DOES LIP AUGMENTATION LAST?

Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 24 October 2019

Even full, voluptuous lips can lose some of their volume due to the process of aging. Lip augmentation cosmetic surgery can help create a more youthful facial appearance and offer enhanced confidence to patients who have experienced a loss of fullness in their lips.

Treatment options such as lip augmentation filler injections, lip implant plastic surgery, and fat transfer are available to patients seeking lip enhancement.

Sustainability of Outcomes with Lip Augmentation Dermal Fillers

Over the years, there have been significant advancements in lip dermal filler injections. But these solutions do not offer permanent results. Lip filler longevity depends on the type of filler used and the body’s response to it.

Lip fillers, for example, will last longer in younger individuals due to adequate collagen and hyaluronic acid production to support and enhance the outcomes. On the other hand, older adults will need routine treatments such as Restylane. Some of the commonly used filler injectables are:

Juvederm

For lip augmentation, Juvederm is used mainly to fill wrinkles around the mouth. The Juvederm gel is hypoallergenic. It creates instant fullness in the treated site. The results are natural looking and can last up to one year.

Restylane

Restylane comprises hyaluronic acid (HA). This dermal filler provides fullness and a natural brightness to the tissue. The outcomes last between six and 12 months. After that, the body absorbs the HA through its natural processes.

Perlane

HA is also the primary ingredient in Perlane. This helps Perlane outcomes appear natural and sustain for an extended period. The outcomes of this dermal filler can sustain between six months to one year.

Collagen

The patient will have to undergo an allergy test before receiving collagen-based lip fillers as animal-based fillers can lead to an allergic reaction. Human collagen-based injections are also available. The outcomes sustain for approximately three months in both cases.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer for lip augmentation involves the removal of fat from one area of the body and its use for lip enhancement. The fat does not create an allergic response as it comes from the patient’s own body. The results last for between three to six months. After that, the patient may require a touch-up procedure.

In general, dermal fillers can sustain in the lips for between three months to a year depending on the type of filler administered.
