Lip plumping treatment involves using injectable fillers, often containing hyaluronic acid, to achieve plumper and fuller lips.
Candidates for lip injections include those looking to restore lip size, add volume to thin lips, enhance lip shape, smoothen wrinkles around the mouth, or hide a gummy smile.
The treatment procedure includes applying a topical anesthetic, injecting fillers into various lip areas, and is relatively painless.
Lip fillers typically last for 12 to 18 months, with potential touch-ups required to maintain volume.
Preparing for lip filler injections involves avoiding alcohol, certain medications, salty foods, and hair removal treatments beforehand, while disclosing relevant medical information to the expert. Natural-looking results are achievable with skilled practitioners, considering overall facial balance.
What is Lip Plumping Treatment?
Lip plumping treatment is an aesthetic procedure to give you plumper and fuller lips. Nowadays, injectable fillers are the most common lip-plumping method. The most common types of lip fillers contain elements like hyaluronic acid. As hyaluronic acid is a natural element found in your body, it adds volume to your lips.
Your lips lose volume over time because of genetics, sun damage, and smoking. With fillers, you can add or restore volume to lips. They can’t stop your aging process but give you fuller lips, which improves your confidence. Lip fillers usually stay for 1 to 1.5 years. However, longevity depends on your age and how quickly your body breaks calories into energy. Consult the doctor at CNF in Bengaluru if you want to have full and plump lips.
Ideal Candidates for Lip Injections
When it comes to getting lip fillers, you should be healthy without an oral infection, like cold/canker sores, and have realistic demand. Many people get lip fillers only to increase the size of their lips. The ideal candidates for lip injections are those who want to:
Restore earlier lip size
Your lips tend to get thinner/smaller with aging. The philtrum (groove between the septum and upper lip) may get flatter and longer. The distance between the mouth corners (inter-commissural distance) can increase. With filler injections, you can get back your thicker and larger lips.
Add volume to thin lips
Fillers can fix your upper and lower lips. The injections can restore the volume that your lips have lost because of getting older. Many people’s lips don’t even show when they smile. Fillers can always add the desired amount of volume to your lips and make them look much fuller than before.
Enhance the lip shape
Lips are asymmetrical and thus, they are of different shapes and sizes. If you aren’t satisfied with the current shape and size of your lips, you can get fillers for enhancement as they can fix symmetry concerns.
Smoothen wrinkles on the side of the mouth
Wrinkles may sometimes develop on your mouth sides when you laugh or just smile. The key ingredients of fillers, like hyaluronic acid, can plump the targeted skin area, which smoothens out your wrinkles.
Hide Gummy Smile
Lip fillers can conceal your gummy smile. The filler injections can plump up upper lips and reduce the amount of gum. Your upper lips’ volume increases, which hides your gummy smile.
Many females aren’t happy with their lips getting thinner as they get older and with the shape and size of their lips because of which they feel less confident. You can’t stop aging and fix your lip size and shape. Thus, you should get fillers as they can give you well-shaped, fuller, and plumper lips, which makes you feel more confident.
The Treatment Procedure
Our doctor applies a topical anesthetic to numb your lips so you don’t feel pain and lip augmentation treatment gets comfortable. Your lips get numb after approximately 15 to 30 minutes. We inject fillers into one or all over your lips, including the curve in the upper lip center (cupid’s bow), lip edges (vermillion border), and oral commissures (mouth corners).
The lip filler treatment causes no pain but may give you a pinching sensation and your eyes get watery. CNF is the leading injectable clinic in Bengaluru, which comes with the best injectors in India. We use top-quality fillers following a safe approach to deliver the desired results. Get lip fillers at our clinic if you want fuller and plumper lips with no severe side effects.
How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?
Lip fillers don’t deliver permanent results, and stay for 12 to 18 months. The results gradually wear away after a year of getting fillers depending on your body’s metabolism. You may require touch-ups every 6 to 12 months to retain the desired volume in your lips.
How to Prepare for Lip Filler Injections?
Getting lip fillers can be exciting but also comes with risks. You may experience post-procedural swelling, which varies depending on the area to be injected. However, following the tips below would mitigate the post-treatment risks and prepare you well for lip filler injections:
- Don’t consume alcohol for at least a day before getting lip fillers.
- Avoid taking certain medicines and supplements.
- Avoid eating salty foods before the treatment.
- Don’t do hair removal treatments at least 2 days before treatment.
- Tell our expert if you have cold sores, are pregnant, breastfeeding, or on immunosuppressive treatment.
Can Lip Injections Look Natural?
Lip fillers can look natural when injections are performed by our experts as we consider your other facial features and balance. Natural-looking lip fillers help balance your face’s lower portion as they draw the lips back considering the chin, nose, and jaw. You get a natural-looking pout, which isn’t about adding volume to full lips but adding volume to points, such as lip corners and cupids now. The lip fillers add volume, rejuvenate aging lips, and sculpt thin lips rather than increasing their size. Start with 1ml lip fillers as they look natural.
Lip Flip Vs. Lip Fillers
The lip flip procedure involves injecting a small amount of Botox into your lips’ borderline to make your lips look more youthful and sensual. Your lips also get a little volume enhancement. While fillers add volume to your lips, improve their shape and make them look larger. When injected correctly, fillers can improve the volume and natural shape of your lips, which decreases wrinkles.
A lip flip is perfect for those who want a little enhancement but don’t want to increase its volume. However, the results stay only for three to four months. Fillers can add the desired volume level to your lips depending on the amount of filler injected.
The lip shape also improves and looks natural even with significant augmentation. Fillers add volume to your lips instantly. However, you must wait two to three weeks to get the desired results.
What Makes Dr. Praharsh The Best Doctor For Lip Filler?
Dr. Praharsh Devraj is a lip filler expert in Bangalore with a decade of experience in the cosmetic dermatology industry. He can use the right filler techniques to improve the shape and give a fuller look to your lips. After carefully examining your lip area, he prepares an effective filler treatment plan. As he chooses the perfect fillers and techniques, you will get the best results.
He believes that out of every 1 hour spent with a patient, 45 minutes should go into assessment and reaching an agreement in setting goals and only 15 minutes for the actual procedure.
The most common blunder in the industry is how upper lips are overfilled to an extent of losing natural movement. Most injectors do not factor in the importance of the mobile nature of the upper lip.
Another collective mistake in the industry is the ledging of the upper lip. As injectors get too artistic, they tend to overemphasise the upper lip border leading to a ledge/shelf like outcome that looks unnatural at best and hideous at worst.
Dr. Praharsh is obsessed with correlating the functionality of your lip with the aesthetic nature of it. For example, he believes that people with wrong resting lip posture and hyperactive mouth closing muscles typically lack a gentle raised border of the upper lip. They usually lack a distinction between the pink and white part of the upper lip.
After a couple of other tests, assessing the face in totality and understanding ways your lip can be improved to give you the most natural and attractive look, he will consider take you to the actual procedure.
