Here’s Why Your Lip Filler May Not Last as Long as Expected
It’s 2020—lip filler needs no introduction. But we will say this: lip augmentation has become so popular, so universally beloved, that it currently boasts a 97% Worth It Rating.
Hyaluronic acid (HA), the primary ingredient in both Restylane and Juvéderm fillers, is the unanimous favorite for plumping and shaping the lips. It’s produced naturally within the skin and works well as a lip filler because it attracts and retains water, keeping the lips plump and soft to the touch. HA fillers are also temporary and reversible, giving injectors and patients peace of mind.
In the Juvéderm family of fillers, Volbella and Ultra XC are commonly used for the lip area, and both claim to last up to one year.
Another HA option is Belotero, which is “a wonderful starter filler,” according to New York City board-certified dermatologist Dr. David Goldberg, because “it lasts the shortest period of time.” Its use in the lips is considered off-label, since it’s FDA-approved only for facial wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds.
