What Are Lip Fillers?
The term “lip fillers” refers to dermal fillers or cosmetic injections. Evidently, these can be various compounds depending on the clinic you use. One of the common compounds used as an injectable treatment is hyaluronic acid gel, a support fluid naturally found in human tissue.
What Does Lip Enhancement Involve?
Lip injections or lip augmentation is pretty straightforward. Before the treatment starts, some numbing cream is applied to the treatment area, this makes the overall process more comfortable for the patient in question. Once the area is sufficiently numb, the lip tissue is injected with the compound to address problems such as thinning lips or simply to increase the volume according to the patient’s requirements.
The injection itself can contain a different type of filler depending on the preference of the clinic you go to. Dr Lanzer and his associates recommend researching the different types of lip fillers as well as their advantages and disadvantages. These can be found on our information pages, but additional information can be requested if the patient has additional questions.
What Are The Benefits Of Lip Fillers?
The benefit of lip fillers are mainly cosmetic in nature, as the patient obtains the procedure usually to make the lips fuller. Of course, benefits are quite personal for the patient, and this is the case for procedures other than lip fillers as well. So, having a good conversation with your cosmetic surgeon can bring more clarity.

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?
When hyaluronic acid gel fillers are used, patients can usually expect the results to last for at least six months post-treatment. Of course, this varies from patient to patient, as some will notice the results from the procedure last much longer than the estimated six months. However, this also means that patients will have to return for a new dermal filler treatment to keep the results over time. Dr Lanzer and his associates have noticed that repeated treatments tend to maintain the results from the dermal filler longer.
In addition to hyaluronic acid gel fillers, there are also so-called polyacrylamide fillers. These fillers have been used by The Dr Lanzer Clinic since 2002 and they provide generally more long-term results. Complications from this procedure are relatively rare, but patients should consider possible allergic reactions, even though Dr Lanzer or his associates have never encountered it with patients in their clinic.
Do Lip Fillers Damage Lips?
When done by an experienced cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist, the dermal filler will not damage the lips. Of course, this does depend on the compound used by your clinic, so always choose an experienced surgeon or dermatologist with plenty of experience in this field.
Patients should expect some minor side-effects after their procedure. One of the most common side-effects is some discomfort in the area where the injection was done. Once the numbing cream wears off, this is probably the discomfort the patient will notice. Of course, pain thresholds are different for everyone and some do not experience much discomfort at all.
