If you have ever considered a cosmetic procedure to change the look of your smile or pout, you’re probably wondering how long do lip fillers last?
At Define Laser & Cosmetic Clinic we provide a range of cosmetic and skin treatments that are aimed at helping you achieve the best look possible for your skin and body.
Our onsite doctor, Lindsay Watson, is here to provide you with all the expert advice about your chosen procedure and a dedicated treatment plan to suit you.
Lip fillers typically last around 6-9 months. For some people it can be less, and others may find they last even longer. Every individual is different.
Your first treatment is usually a good indication of how long they will last for. The longevity of filler depends on many factors, like the type and amount used.
It’s inevitable that filler will break down over time. It is said your metabolic rate can affect how long they last. The mouth area is one we use constantly to eat and speak, so it may not last as long as another area like the mid face.
What to Avoid After Lip Filler Treatment
- Avoid drinking from straws for 24 hours after treatments
- Don’t massage the area unless your doctor instructs you to
- We recommend not having facial massages for two weeks after treatment
- No fish oil, or vitamin E tablets for two weeks, as this can increase the chance of bruising
What to do After Treatment
We recommend no exercise for the first 24 hours following your treatment. Also avoid any anything that will encourage extra heat or sweat to the area such as hot showers, saunas and steam rooms.
You want to keep the area cool and calm, so avoid anything that increases blood flow.
