Routine dissolving of your lip filler? But why?

Did you know that repeated lip fillers without dissolving them after your 3rd/4th filler treatment can lead to migration of your lip filler? Yes, it can! Secondly, the build up of repeated syringes of lip filler can make it difficult to get the results that you are looking for.

There is so much discussion regarding techniques with lip filling but not many people discuss the importance of dissolving the filler that is in your lips.

Studies using an ultrasound have shown filler in the lips years after lip filler treatments.

To minimize migration and to give your lips a “break”, it is important to get routine dissolving of your lip filler. This is a quick and relatively painless procedure (we use BLT cream). Hylenex (Hyaluronidase) injections are placed in your lips. After the injections, there is an immediate softening of your lips. It can take up to 48 hours to see full results.

We have patients who come routinely for this procedure. This gives your provider a “clean slate” and the opportunity to fill lips that do not have existing filler. We recommend 2-4 weeks before we fill your lips again. We want your lips to have time to heal, allow the swelling to go down, and let the lips settle into their original (or close) size.

It is about maintaining healthy lips.

At Higher Self Aesthetics, we explain these differences intimately to each of our patients in order to provide the best results. Every face (and body) is created different and that is why we CUSTOMIZE our treatment plans.

Hope you enjoyed your insight in aesthetic medicine with Higher Self Aesthetics
