JUVÉDERM® Lip Fillers are dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid. When this acid is injected into your lips it adds volume to it. Is it safe? The short answer is yes. The long answer is yes because your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, which means you are not introducing a foreign substance to it.
Once it’s injected, it stimulates the production of collagen which will plump up whichever part it’s injected in. As you get older, the amount of collagen and hyaluronic acid your body produces decreases, resulting in thinning lips.
What’s going to happen after the solution is injected into your lips? Aside from the increase in volume, you should expect bruising and swelling. There are also other possible side effects including:
These side effects normally subside within two weeks to a month. However, if they become worse, you should call your doctor right away.
The recovery time is very minimal. However, you will be advised to skip going to the gym, applying makeup, drinking alcohol, and being exposed to the sun for at least a day after receiving the treatment. The effect of the injections are usually instantaneous but you will be able to appreciate it completely once the swelling subsides.
