Injectable lip fillers are very common weapons in the war against aging. Keep in mind that the results of most lip fillers are not permanent because the body slowly absorbs the substances that are injected. Many patients come in for treatments once or twice a year.
Collagen lip filler
Cosmetic surgeons use many different types of lip fillers. This means that the treatment can be customized for the specific needs of each and every patient. The most widely used lip filler in this group is the collagen lip filler. This is the most commonly used throughout the world and it's also a very popular choice at our private clinic. During this procedure, collagen is extracted from living tissue from either bovines or humans. Bovine-derived collagen lip fillers are used in a great number of cases. The cows that are the source for the collagen are closely monitored throughout their lifetime and therefore they are completely healthy and the materials used are therefore completely safe. However, some people (approximately 3 percent of all cases) exhibit allergic reactions to bovine-derived collagen, which is why a preliminary allergy test is always required with this type of lip filler.
If you are allergic to bovine-derived collagen, your doctor can choose to use human-derived collagen instead. This type of collagen lip filler is extracted from human tissue, usually from excess skin tissue removed during surgeries. This makes it completely biocompatible when used as a lip-filler substance and therefore, there are no allergic reactions to the material.
Hyaluronic acid lip filler
Hyaluronic acid lip fillers are usually much longer lasting than the collagen types. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in the human body in both skin tissue and the joints. Hyaluronic acid also has an ability to bind with water molecules and while it fills in the treated lips, it also moisturizes them.
As you can see, there are many types of lip fillers to choose from. Recent advancements in the field have made this procedure incredibly safe and its effects increasingly persistent. It is certainly worth trying it out and we assure that you will be completely satisfied with the results. More voluptuous and sensuous lips will be your reward if you do try this treatment, which only requires a few seconds to perform.
