Lip filler creates a wonderful aesthetic change with a small touch. Within minutes, your lips will become beautiful and you will look younger and more sympathetic.

Natural lip filler is our favorite medical aesthetic application and it has a magic touch effect. It is noticeable that there is a change in your face that suits you very well, but at first glance it is difficult to understand exactly what this change is.

With the effect of aging, moisture loss of the skin is most commonly seen as a lack of volume in the lips. Lips lose their fullness, lip contour becomes faint, lip color becomes dull, and lips, the symbol of beauty, look pale and lifeless.

Thanks to lip filler applications with hyaluronic acid, 1 cc of lip filler is often enough to revitalize the lips and make them look full and young again.

For those who complain about the thinness of their lips or want to have fuller and more attractive lips, the lip filler adventure, which starts with 1 cc, usually continues gradually to have fuller lips.

Also, lip fillers are increasingly being applied among men. Lip filler is an extremely practical application, especially in eliminating deformities, and when used in combination with nose tip filler, it allows us to achieve an aesthetically harmonious appearance in the mouth-nose area.

What is Lip Filler?

Lip filling is a type of medical aesthetic application that we perform using Hyaluronic acid-based fillers. We can say that lip filler, which can meet many different needs such as plumping, rejuvenating and reshaping the lips, has become a part of a beauty approach that favors minimal aesthetics and naturalness, beyond lip augmentation.

By answering the question of what lip filler is and what it does, we can express more clearly what we can do with lip filler:

  • Gives volume to the lips
  • Makes the lip contour clear
  • Rejuvenates lips
  • Rejuvenates the upper lip
  • Reshapes lips
  • Can improve lip deformities

Lip filler, as you can guess, is a filler injection application and is permanent for a certain period of time.

Hyaluronic acid is injected into the necessary points around the lips, in the area called the lip heart formed by the lower and upper lips, and at the edges of the lips, in order to make the lips look voluminous.

Thanks to its ability to retain water, Hyaluronic acid causes volume increase in the area where it is injected. In this way, lips appear fuller in the applied area.

How is Lip Filling Done?

During the aesthetic examination, which includes a clear understanding of the expectations from the application before lip filler, a personalized lip filler plan is created in accordance with the aesthetic proportions of the face.

After deciding how many cc of filler will be applied to which part of the lip, local anesthesia is applied to avoid any pain during lip filling. It takes about 10-15 minutes for anesthesia to become effective. Then, the filling process begins with a cannula or very fine-tipped needles.

Hyaluronic acid injection into the lips is a painless application that is completed within 5-10 minutes. Although it is easy and comfortable for the patient, it is a procedure that must be performed with extreme care for the doctor performing the lip filler. Otherwise, full but not very aesthetically pleasing results may occur.

It is important to pay attention to some tips to make lip filler look natural and beautiful:

  • Lip shape suitable for the person’s face shape should be determined.
  • The lower and upper lips should be plumped harmoniously, maintaining a certain aesthetic ratio.
  • Care should be taken not to make the lips look exaggerated in profile and projection.

Lip filling is completed in an average of 30 to 45 minutes. After the application, you can continue your daily life where you left off.

Lip filler types vary according to many different criteria such as duration of permanence, lip shape, and application area. To better understand everything about the world of lip fillers, let’s take a closer look at all the types of lip fillers.

Permanent Lip Filling

Lip filler may have been called permanent lip filler when silicone was applied to the lips, but lip silicone is an old practice that has been abandoned today.

Temporary Lip Filling

Lip filler is a “temporary filler” application. Lip filler made with hyaluronic acid lasts for 12-16 months when first applied. Like all other filling procedures, lip filling can be repeated and there is a general observation that the second filling lasts longer.

Needle-Free Lip Filler

How to do lip filler without needles? It is possible to talk about two different techniques here. The first is lip filling performed with a cannula. Many doctors prefer filling with a cannula because it prevents small vessels from bursting. The other one is the needle-free lip filling application, which you have heard frequently about lately, and it is performed using a pressurized pen.

Upper Lip Filler

In Turkey, the lower lips are generally thick and the upper lips are thin. Achieving a more harmonious appearance with the lower lip by filling the upper lip is the lip filler technique we use most frequently.

1 ml Lip Filler

The amount is very important in lip filler because the effect of 1 ml of filler varies from person to person. In addition, the results of filling application applied to different points on the same lip with the same amount of filling material will also be different.

It is possible to obtain a very sufficient volume and meet the person’s expectations with 1 ml of filler, but it may also be insufficient, but since this is a compensable situation, it is possible to fill the lips with 1 ml of filler. Starting with lip filler and increasing the amount step by step is the correct approach to lip filler.

Russian Lip Filler

Thanks to the filler being injected into the lip in a vertical line, the lips receive a natural expansion and the lip contour rises slightly. We can say that Russian lip filler is one of the popular lip filler types of recent times, as it ensures that the filler is distributed homogeneously around the lip rather than in one area.

French Lip Filler

In French filler, which is also used as the general name given to lip fillers made with hyaluronic acid, the filling process is carried out gradually and the lip structure of the French is imitated.

Who Cannot Have Lip Fillers?

  • Lip fillers are not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
  • Lip fillers cannot be applied when there is herpes on the lips.
  • Lip fillers are not recommended for people who have any skin disease or who are still undergoing treatment.

Who is Lip Filler Suitable for?

  • Adult women and men of all ages who are not satisfied with the shape and volume of their lips.
  • Those who complain about loss of volume in their lips due to aging.
  • Those who want to fill regional volume losses in their lips.
  • Lips that look smaller than they actually are when the lip area is indistinct.
  • Those who want to have more voluminous lips.

How to Remove Lip Filler?

If you do not like the application, it is possible to completely dissolve the lip filler within a few days with hyaluronidase injection.

How Permanent is Lip Filler?

The two most frequently asked questions among those who have had lip fillers and/or are considering having lip fillers are: how long does the lip filler last, when does the lip filler melt?

Lip fillers are permanent for at least 12 and at most 16 months. The fillings slowly begin to melt. It may take up to 18 months for lip filler to completely dissolve.

Side Effects of Lip Fillers

Since hyaluronic acid is a substance that is already present in the human body, there is no such thing as fillers made with such dermatological ingredients that could harm health under normal conditions.

Still, we often encounter the question of whether lip fillers are harmful. Although medical aesthetic procedures are much lower risk procedures than aesthetic operations, they may cause some side effects and unexpected complications, but these are rare events.

Possible low-risk side effects of lip fillers are mild cases that heal completely within a few days:

  • Swelling 
  • Bruising 
  • Tingling 
  • Temporary loss of sensation

After Lip Filling

After lip filler is generally an extremely comfortable process, but edema in the first few days is normal, within our expectations.

How to Treat Edema After Lip Filling?

Drinking plenty of water after lip filler is the most practical method to relieve edema. If your doctor says it is necessary, you can continue the cold application for a few days.

When Will the Swelling Go Down After Lip Filling?

Depending on the skin structure, the swelling and healing process after lip filler varies from person to person. Usually, the swelling disappears completely within a week. Although rare, it is not abnormal for it to last up to two weeks.

When Does Lip Filling Apply?

The effect of lip filler is observed immediately after application, but it takes about 1-2 weeks for your lip movements to be completely compatible with the filler and for the filler to settle. During the check-up in the second week, lip filling is completed with minor retouching if necessary.

Lip Fillers Prices 

Lip filling is one of the most popular procedures among medical aesthetic applications. It is performed in many clinics and beauty centers at a very variable price range. It is possible to answer the question of how much lip filler costs by saying that lip fillers suitable for every budget can be easily found in Istanbul.

We would like to remind you that in order not to risk the beauty of your lips, your primary criterion should be clinic quality and doctor experience rather than the price of lip filler.
