Is There A Right Age For Lip Fillers
Is There A Right Age For Lip Fillers – It’s not unusual for the lips to become thinner as part of the natural aging process. Injectable fillers are a great way to restore lost volume to the lips and refresh overall appearance. Though lip injectables are a popular choice for women under 40, there’s no age limit for this form of cosmetic solution. Indeed, older women react very well to lip injectables and find it to be a highly effective correction to thinning lips due to aging. In some cases it may require more product to attain positive results for older patients, particularly if there are fine lines around the mouth.
There basically two kinds of injectables that can improve the volume and definition of your lips. Fillers containing artificial hyaluronic fillers can be effective for adding some needed volume that will make your lips fuller and create a more appealing shape. These fillers remain effective for up to one year, and the majority of patients respond very well. Fat transfers are another way to add volume to the lips. This is performed by harvesting fat tissue from elsewhere on the body through liposuction, and then injecting the purified fat into the lips for a natural-looking result that lasts.
Treatments with hyaluronic fillers are performed quickly and painlessly at our offices. With no surgery, anesthesia or downtime, patients can return to normal routines right afterwards. While the procedure isn’t particularly painful, some patients can opt for a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Adding fat to enhance lip volume requires a little more planning, but there is still minimal or no downtime.
Regardless of which type of lip filler you may select, there will likely be some modest swelling after the treatment that typically subsides within a day or so.
