How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?
Lip fillers are one of the lowest risk, highest reward cosmetic enhancements you can make. The most common way to plump lips is to inject them with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, so allergic reactions and other side effects are extremely rare.
Even a small cosmetic intervention like lip fillers should be considered carefully. But given the relatively small cost, it’s no surprise that lip fillers are very popular, and their popularity is growing. Lip fillers typically cost between $400 and $600 per syringe (depending on the brand), and most patients require only one syringe for each treatment.
What Factors Determine How Long Fillers Last?
Several factors determine how long fillers will last for you, and only some of those factors are under your control. If long-lasting fillers are your priority, talk with your professional about which products are consistently getting longer-lasting results. Discuss the pros and cons of different products and different treatment types.
How long your fillers last, however, may end up being based somewhat on your skin type and your metabolism. Your body eventually absorbs the substance of the filler, and all bodies do so at different rates.
Are Permanent Lip Augmentation Options Better?
If you research “permanent lip augmentation” three common types of lip augmentation typically come up. They are collagen-based fillers, fat transfer, and lip implants. However, only lip implants are actually permanent, and not everyone is a candidate for lip implants.
You actually have to have symmetrical lips and enough lip tissue to stretch over to conceal the implant and make it look natural. So basically, you can only get lip implants if you don’t really need them.
