How Long Does Lip Filler Last?
Updated: Jan 5, 2021
When considering lip filler, what does the “perfect pout” mean to you? Is it a more defined lip line or a shapely cupid’s bow? Is it a certain projection from the side profile or improved symmetry between sides of the mouth? Perhaps your perfect pout is a pillowy top and bottom lip with a keyhole opening. Whatever outcome you desire, they’re all achieved with lip filler.
About Lip Injections
Lip injections are one of our most popular treatments at Coco Med Spa. We use medical-grade, FDA-approved, dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid to achieve the desired result. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Its purpose in the body is to provide fullness and elasticity however, as we age its production decreases. Lip fillers are a safe way to restore fullness or achieve fullness that has not naturally occurred for a client.
Before injecting here at Coco Med Spa, Amy consults with clients to co-create in a way that not only gives our guests their desired outcome but achieves it in a way that complements and enhances the rest of their features. When it comes to filling the lips, they cannot be looked at in a singular manner but rather as a small piece of a bigger picture. Injections are more than just medical science, they require an artist’s eye as well. This combination of skill and technique creates a beautiful outcome that always enhances but never takes away from the big picture.
The process of receiving lip injections is short, less than an hour usually, with little to no downtime. We numb the injection site to ensure minimal pain and clients can expect that any residual swelling or bruising will subside in just a few days. It is a quick and simple appointment that offers our guests instant gratification from the visible adjustments and improvements.
How long does lip filler last?
The lifespan of lip fillers varies per person but the average person can expect to need a touch-up every 6-12 months as the hyaluronic acid is absorbed and metabolized by the body. Occasionally, first-time injections may dissolve more quickly, but they tend to last a bit longer as time goes on with regular upkeep.
How much does it cost for a lip filler?
The cost of lip fillers varies based on quantity, the brand of lip filler, and the expertise of the provider. This is not a service that you want to skimp on. Be sure to research reputable injectors in your area, read reviews, and never allow injections to be done outside of a medical or medical spa setting. Your safety and satisfaction are worth the investment!
What are the benefits of lip filler?
Lastly, despite the quick and simple application, lip fillers provide the following tremendous benefits to the recipient:
Increased symmetry and balance
An optimized side profile
A more youthful appearance
Repaired lost volume due to age or weight fluctuation
A natural enhancement specifically designed to complement existing features
