  • 5 Simple Tips to Ensure the Longevity of Your Lip Filler Treatments

Are you thinking about having a lip filler treatment? Here are five simple and easy-to-follow steps for long-lasting lip filler results.

Whether you were born with thin lips, or you have experienced volume loss in that facial area due to aging, lip filler injections such as Juvederm offer an effective and safe way of adding volume, shape, and structure to your mouth. 

When administered by a skilled specialist, lip fillers have many benefits, including: 

  • Enhanced and more youthful appearance
  • Natural-looking results that will boost your self-confidence
  • Little to no side effects
  • No downtime
  • Quick treatment times

5 Tips to Make Your Lip Filler Results Last Longer 

Before you search for ways to extend the life of your lip fillers, you must have realistic expectations of how long they are likely to last naturally. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, do not produce permanent results, but the effects can last up to 12 months. 

While there are no magical ways to make your lip fillers last longer, there are certain steps you can take to ensure you enjoy your beautiful pout for as long as possible. 

This includes: 

1. Follow the After-Care Advice 

Because lip fillers do not require any downtime, it can be very tempting to carry on with your normal routine immediately after the procedure. However, your skin specialist will provide you with specific after-care instructions, and it’s important to follow them. 

Why is this important? Instructions to avoid exercise and alcohol for at least 24 hours after the procedure will lower your risk of developing any swelling or bruising. Taking care of your lips from the very start will give them the chance to look good for longer. 

2. Control Your Stress Levels 

Stress can have a huge impact on your health, but did you know that it could also have an effect on your lip filler results? The extra hormones your body produces when you are stressed can actually cause the filler to break down faster, leading to repeat treatments more often. 

It’s important to find ways to lower your stress levels. Of course, it is not possible to avoid all of life’s stressful situations, but finding different ways to manage your reaction to such events can help you maintain your health (and lip filler results).

3. Avoid Excessive Sun Exposure 

It is always a good idea to wear SPF whenever you go outside and to limit your time in the sun during the hottest hours of the day (11 am - 3 pm), but you should be even more aware of this after a lip filler treatment. This is because high exposure to UV rays can cause certain fillers to break down faster, causing your body to absorb them faster than you’d like. 

4. Eat a Healthy Diet 

Did you know that eating too much junk food can cause inflammation in the body, which could cause your dermal fillers to break down faster? After your treatment, it’s recommended that you eat as healthily as possible, which means adding plenty of vegetables and fruits to your diet, as well as healthy fats and oils found in nuts and fish. 

5. Stick to Your Top-Up Appointments 

Keeping on top of your filler maintenance schedule will ensure that the size of your lips doesn’t fluctuate too much. This means that if you wait for the full 12 months to go for a top up, then your lips are likely to return to their original shape and size, which makes your results a lot more noticeable once you’ve had your treatment. 

Want a natural plump? Talk to your skin care specialist about when it’s the best time to visit for a top up. If you do so regularly, you might even require less filler to be injected every time.
