Beauty is not only a gift of nature, but a way of life that requires constant attention. Modern cosmetology offers a lot of innovative technologies, allowing almost any woman to look like the cover, but decorative cosmetics are not all-powerful when it comes to the global correction of facial shapes. Which filler lasts the longest?
How long does hyaluronic acid last in the lips?
It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t heard of such a procedure as lip augmentation with fillers. Popular beauty technology attracts ease, efficiency and safety. It takes just a few local injections (no scalpel, anesthesia, and complicated rehabilitation!) to make your lips look sensual and sexy. Thinking about contouring, every woman asks herself the questions: “How long does hyaluronic acid last in the lips?” and “Won’t the long-awaited effect disappear after a few weeks?”. As a rule, the effect of the introduction of the filler lasts 6-10 months, and depends on a number of factors, including individual factors.
Contouring of the lips: how long does the effect last?
So how long will the lips last? Before answering this key question, it is necessary to understand the nuances of the procedure. Contour plastic surgery is performed by introducing hyaluronic acid to the lips. The purpose of the procedure is to correct the contour of the lips, or to obtain a larger volume. The biological substance responsible for the elasticity and firmness of the skin is produced by the human body, but with age, the process of producing hyaluronic acid slows down. Injections of hyaluronic acid prevent age-related changes in tissues and make lips look naturally voluminous.
How long the hyaluronic acid in the lips will last, depends primarily on the individual characteristics of the body:
- hormonal background;
- tissue conditions;
- presence of various diseases;
- intensity of the body’s metabolic processes, etc.
In many ways, the effect of plumping the lips depends on the drug used and its consistency. What kind of filler lasts longer in the lips? The density of the filler depends on the amount of hyaluronic acid and is measured in milligrams per milliliter. The higher the density – the longer the substance will be resorbed (i.e. retain the effect). Too dense preparations are low plasticity and unevenly distributed in the skin layers. The most common gels are medium viscosity, which provide the desired lip volume for up to a year. Less viscous preparations provide the desired effect for up to 8 months.
