LIP FILLERS 101

Lip Fillers Information from Defy Nature in New London

Lip fillers: they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but they are one of the most Googled beauty search terms. Even if you wouldn’t consider lip fillers for yourself, you’re at least a little curious, right?

WHAT ARE LIP FILLERS?

Today’s lip fillers consist of Hyaluronic Acid, an organic compound found in the body. It’s a pretty useful beauty ingredient because it’s able to hold up to one-thousand times its own weight in water. This is the reason why you will find it up front and center on the back of your skincare products. In a cream, it can only do so much. It can’t penetrate the outer layers of your skin to reach a depth where it can have an instant and noticeable impact. Some brands are using low molecular weight HA, to try and force it deeper into the skin, but even that can only do so much. That’s where the needle in a lip filler treatment comes in.

Because Hyaluronic Acid is something that our body produces it is easily accepted. Once injected into the skin, it’s the body breaks it down over a period of time giving the lips a fuller appearance for longer. A healthy, full lip line can take years off your appearance and reawaken your whole face. Not only is HA used in the lips, it can plump out wrinkles, restore volume to cheeks, and eradicate those vertical lines at the side of your mouth.

Lip fillers are an aesthetic treatment so it’s important to choose an expert injector. This is why it is important to only allow a qualified, reputable medical professional to perform a lip filler treatment. At Defy Nature in New London, Connecticut, you can trust in Kristin! She is an aesthetic-trained licensed RN with years of medical experience. Plus, she has Dr. Azia to support her as the Medical Director.

Considering having this treatment performs at a spa or beauty salon? Remember, a beautician hasn’t had medical training. In the event of an issue, they are unable to prescribe medication or treatment if something were to go wrong.

After the procedure, your lips will look fuller and sexier but not overdone. Our patients at Defy Nature love how their fuller lips seem to rejuvenate their entire face.
