Hyaluronic acid lip filler is a "filling" material that improves the quality and/or volume of the skin tissue in a specific anatomical area of the face.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural polysaccharide present in all living organisms. Injectable hyaluronic acid for aesthetic use can be of animal origin (rooster combs) or synthetic (bacterial fermentation). Unlike collagen, this substance carries no risk of allergic reactions, as supported by extensive worldwide literature.
What Are the Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Lip Fillers?
Hyaluronic acid allows for reducing wrinkle depth and increasing subcutaneous volumes, such as in the cheeks and jawline. It can also enhance the contour, volume, and fullness of the lips.
The patient wanted to add more definition to her lips. Using hyaluronic acid treatment, Dr. Frabboni performed the procedure with precision and care. The patient’s lips were carefully shaped to achieve a fuller look while maintaining their natural softness and proportion.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN AFTER THE USE OF HYALURONIC ACID?
In the days following the procedure, swelling and redness of the treated area may occur for a few days, albeit rarely, and typically resolve spontaneously without further complications. Hematomas can rarely form, and edema (swelling) is common for a few days. Extremely rare inflammatory and infectious reactions are reported in the literature. How should I behave after a filler treatment? In the 2-3 days following the treatment, it’s advisable to avoid exposure to extremely hot or cold temperatures.
HOW LONG WILL MY HYALURONIC ACID LIP FILLER LAST?
The duration of correction varies depending on how often the implanted area is stressed; on average, it can last around 6 months, but it may be much less, and it varies from patient to patient. Touch-up sessions may be needed even shortly after the initial treatment.
IS THE FILLER TREATMENT UNCOMFORTABLE?
The hyaluronic acid injection is not particularly painful. A numbing cream is applied half an hour before the treatment. Sometimes injectable anesthesia may be necessary.
