As you have gotten older, it is very likely that you have started to see certain wrinkles appear on your face. While each person ages in a different way, it is common for person to start to get wrinkles around their lips when they hit their late 30’s. Often, these wrinkles are referred to as smoker’s lines. They happen even if a person is a smoker or not. They occur because a person loses volume in their lips as they get older. So, fine lines and creases begin to appear. Is there anything you can do to improve your lips as you get older? Actually, you can wave your lip lines goodbye with dermal filler lip injections in Knoxville, TN and the surrounding area.
Dermal fillers are an amazing solution for those who are dealing with smoker’s lines and other lip lines. Basically, they replace volume that has been lost as a result of the aging process.
What is a dermal filler injection treatment like? First, you have to visit us here in our Knoxville, TN office for a consultation. During this consultation, you will learn more about dermal fillers and how they can help you. This basic information will help you make a good decision about using this treatment. In addition, this initial consultation will give us a chance to get to know you and your goals better. We will help you decide if lip injections are the best choice for you.
When you have your actual filler session, a numbing cream or ice will be used in order to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. A very thin needle is used in order to inject the dermal filler. You will likely feel the sting of the needle, but we do all that we can in order to help you avoid pain and feel comfortable during your treatment. You will get to see the results of your treatment right away. You may have a little bit of swelling, so the treatment may be a little bit more exaggerated at first than it will be later on after the swelling has gone down.
Depending on the dermal filler that was used, you can usually expect your filler to last for at least six months. The reason why we say that the type of filler you use will determine the amount of time that the product lasts is because fillers are made from a wide variety of different substances. Some of these last longer than others. If your filler was made from hyaluronic acid, you can expect it to last anywhere from six to 12 months. If it was made from a synthetic product, it may last longer. We can discuss this with you during your first consultation.
