Do Lip Fillers Damage Your Lips?

  As one of the top cosmetic procedures of the past decade, people have many questions about lip filler injections. From which is better between Juvederm and Restylane to the risks of the procedure, patients want to know as much as possible before undergoing lip filler injections. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we foster an environment of transparency and patient education. Thus, we do our best to answer all questions they may have. One question patients sometimes ask is, “Do lip fillers damage your lips?”   Lip fillers—when administered properly and with hyaluronic acid fillers—are unlikely to cause damage to your lips. The needle pricks will heal like any other needle poke on your body. Thus, most of the time, there is no scarring and the lips will return to normal once the filler dissolves.    In the cases where fillers do cause damage to the lips, there are usually predictable factors. First, if the patient routinely overfilled their lips for a long period of time, this may cause some stretching of the area or even wrinkling. This is quite rare, but possible. Next, an inexperienced or unqualified provider is more likely to cause damage to the lips due to poor quality supplies, bad technique, or use of inauthentic fillers.   Finally, while less common now, some people underwent silicone lip injections that used industrial grade silicone. This was one of the top causes of lip damage from fillers for years. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
