Almost everyone's dream is to have lips that look fuller and fresh. Thanks to the developing technology and methods that are becoming more and more practical, it is now quite simple to make this dream come true. However, of course, there are professional details that need careful attention and many aspects of this subject that require expertise.
Why do our lips age?
The estrogen hormone can be considered the elixir of our youth. With the decrease of this hormone, our skin gradually loses its vitality. Our lips lose fullness and become thinner over time, lines appear on them, they get dry and lose their vitality.
What is lip filler?
It is a material that is hyaluronic acid-based, which is a naturally found substance in our body. This substance enables the skin to regain its vitality and clears the lines away by reactivating the skin's lost properties due to age. Lip injections involve the process of injecting hyaluronic acid into the lips.
Who can get lip fillers?
Apart from aging, lip fillers are used for cosmetic purposes in cases where the lip is structurally asymmetrical. It is used to provide fuller lips for people who have thin lips by birth. It is applied to rejuvenate lips that thin or lose their texture due to aging and to help them regain their natural beauty. It can be used to highlight the lips in cases where the contour around the lips is not prominent.
What kind of a procedure is it?

What if you don't like the results! Can it be reversed?
It is generally a procedure that provides results that make the person happy. In rare cases where the person is not satisfied with the results, it can be melted, which is an option usually not preferred by experts. The reason why experts do not prefer it is because melting can also affect the natural hyaluronic acid that exists in our lips. Is it ok to return to social life right after the procedure? As we just mentioned, lip fillers are an extremely simple and fast procedure. Only slight redness and temporary swelling are observed. After the procedure, the person can continue with their daily life. However, it is best to avoid contact with very hot and cold water only on the day of the procedure.
Is one session enough?
Lip fillers are not a permanent treatment if the filler material containing hyaluronic acid is used. Since they look much healthier and natural than the permanent fillers in the past years, temporary fillers are used much more widely and are recommended by experts. Temporary fillers may differ in terms of durability depending on the amount of the substance used, the application site, and the structure of the skin. We can say that there is durability varying between 6 and 18 months.
There are different lip shapes, is it possible to have these shapes with fillers? There are various lip shapes that have small differences in terms of the shape of the folds and their proportions. The ideal is to choose the most suitable shape for the person's lip structure and to achieve good results while preserving the natural appearance of the lips.

Do lip fillers wipe out the natural appearance of the face?
Since the lip fillers consist of hyaluronic acid present in our body, it does not create a disproportionate appearance on our lips. The filler scatters under the tissue homogeneously. Therefore, if the person does not insist on a type of full lips that do not go well with his/her face, the fillers do not cause an unnatural expression.
