With the demand for plump lips, lip filling has become a popular non-surgical option. And now the commonly used lip fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers. As a type of collagen, hyaluronic acid can be slowly absorbed by the body, which is one of the reasons why hyaluronic acid is popular. Hyaluronic acid lip filling is also very fast, under normal circumstances, it will not take more than an hour. But different from surgical fillings, lip fillings are temporary, and the effect will gradually disappear after a few months. There are several factors that affect the lasting time of lip fillers.
Generally speaking, the lasting time of the filler depends on the filler used and your goals. What we should know is that hyaluronic acid lip fillers are natural compounds that are commonly used to add fullness to the lips. After injection, the hyaluronic acid both attracts and binds to water in the surrounding tissue, which serves to lift and plump the lips. Usually, these fillers last between six and nine months as the filler gradually breaks down and is absorbed by the body. And collagen is another type of filler that is used less frequently due to side effects and allergic reactions. These fillers last approximately three months before the body degrades the material. So it is not recommended.
When used to fill the lips, smaller amounts of filler which may result in the filler degrading at a faster rate. But the filler material is absorbed by the body at the same rate, whether the treatment is a first or subsequent one, it takes the same time to disappear. Hyaluronic acid injectable lip fillers are the current industry standard when looking at longevity, effectiveness and safety. These fillers can produce results that last between six to nine months, and in some cases, can last up to twelve months. But long-lasting results do not necessarily mean better outcomes. Longevity is not the only factor in choosing a lip filler, texture, natural look and safety must also be considered.
And there are several lifestyle factors can influence how long lip fillers last in some people. Generally, results tend to last longer in people who maintain a healthier lifestyle. As hyaluronic acid works by binding to water, maintaining good hydration will help support the effects of the filler. Maintaining a moderate level of physical activity contributes to better overall skin health and longer-lasting results. People who maintain good skin hygiene tend to have healthier skin. Clean and moisturized skin can contribute to longer-lasting results.
