When people think of lip filler, they often think of oversized lips. While outsized lips have been a popular trend for several years, thanks in part to influencers on social media, the majority of patients request a more subtle look. Most qualified practitioners want their patients to have a beautiful and natural-looking result, and most patients want the same results in 2021. As people are beginning to do their research to become educated about fillers, they are choosing the filler that is best for their wants and needs and finding an excellent practitioner to provide them with their desired results.
Most lip augmentations are primarily done using dermal fillers. These are products containing hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body. Multiple different dermal fillers can be used, each having its perks and lifespan.
Volbella is one of the newer lip fillers on the market that uses a mixture of hyaluronic acid. This filler is preferred by many in the lips due to its softer feel. For most people, Volbella lasts between 12 and 18 months.
Juvederm is perhaps the most widely known dermal filler. Juvederm is famous for use in many parts of the face for plumping and anti-aging effects, giving patients a natural look. Depending on where it is used, Juvederm last from six months to more than a year.
Restylane is another trendy dermal filler used for lip injections. Restylane Silk is the line that was developed specifically for lip injections. It provides a soft look and feel, making it an excellent choice for use in the lips.
