How They Work & When To Use Them
Dermal fillers are pretty commonplace in the United States, and lip augmentation is a particularly popular option. A 2020 annual report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that 3.4 million Americans had some form of soft tissue filler injection.
While many people get lip fillers to simply have fuller lips, this treatment can be used to correct lip asymmetries, reduce fine lines around the mouth and lips, and define lip shape. Whatever your reason may be, it’s important to understand how lip fillers work, what their overall benefits are, and when you should use them.
Understanding Lip Fillers
Dermal fillers as a group are designed to give volume and fullness to the treatment area and to diminish wrinkles and fine lines.
At ENT Aesthetics, we use the dermal filler Revanesse Versa. Revanesse is a relatively new dermal filler that can be used for a number of purposes. Approved in December 2017 by the FDA, Revanesse Versa has already become a popular injectable filler. This dermal filler, which is composed mainly of hyaluronic acid, can be used both as a facial filler to even out wrinkles and as a lip filler for better lip volume.
Benefits of Revanesse Versa
Revanesse is our choice for lip augmentation for a variety of reasons:
- Revanesse Versa uses smaller particles of hyaluronic acid making it a lot smoother to inject than other fillers.
- The results of the filler have been reported to last longer than other fillers.
- The injections contain lidocaine which numbs the skin and makes the process less painful and more comfortable
When We Recommend Lip Filler Treatment
First, to be a good candidate for Revanesse Versa lip filler treatment, you need to be at least 22 years or older.
Then, depending on several factors which include your skin type, your desired results, and your medical history, the doctor will be able to ascertain if Revanesse Versa is a good option for you. Your doctor will also be able to advise you on alternate treatments if required. The best way to know if you qualify as a candidate for Revanesse Versa is to schedule a consultation with a provider such as ENT Aesthetics.
What To Expect At Your Appointment
Getting lip fillers to plump up your lips is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure. The lip filler preparation and injection takes just a few minutes.
Mild side effects, like swelling, itching, bruising, and redness may occur, but they should disappear in a few days. The treatment isn’t permanent, so maintenance injections may be necessary.
Results vary; some people only require follow-up treatments every couple of years.
Using Revanesse as a lip filler is a low-maintenance treatment with plenty of upsides. If you’re interested in seeing what lip fillers can do for you, make an appointment with ENT Aesthetics today. See what lip fillers can do for you. Contact us at (260) 497-5500.
