Women can find the fuller and younger looking lips they have always wanted with simple injectable treatments that have been available for years. Most of these treatment options are cost-effective and do not require substantial funds to receive. Here is some important information on what lip fillers are, the types of fillers currently available, and the future of these convenient treatments.
Lip fillers are convenient injectable treatments used to change the appearance of the upper and lower lips by increasing their size and appearance. Typically, these treatments do not require invasive surgeries and can be completed within 30 minutes. Most needles used for these treatments are tiny in gauge to reduce the pain from the injection. Lip fillers vary in the types of fillers available and which ones are best for specific patients.
Many different types of materials have been used for lip filler treatments over the years. One of the most popular options for lip filler treatments has been fat transfer procedure. A small amount of fat tissue is removed from the body through a small incision and suction and injected into the upper and lower lips. The small incision from the procedure typically does not leave noticeable scar tissue and can easily be covered up. This easy procedure uses natural substances from the body to create a fuller appearance of the lips.
Another popular procedure for many lip filler treatments is using a synthetic material that is very similar to hyaluronic acid naturally found in the body. One of these synthesized substances is Restylane, which has been used on several million patients over the years. Restylane typically lasts for approximately six months and can be used for more than one treatment. Other hyaluronic acid-based substances that have been created are Xeomin, Ultherapy, Cellfina, and Radiesse.
Merz Aesthetics recently announced the upcoming release of Belotero Lips, a new line of injectable treatments that uses two different hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers. These new fillers are used together to create a more natural appearance for women of all ages. The first filler, Belotero Lips Shape, is used to enhance the upper and lower lip appearance. The second filler, Belotero Lips Contour, is then used to define the outline of the lips. Belotero Lips is currently available in Europe and scheduled to release stateside later this year.
