Injecting lips: How long does hyaluronic acid last?

Lippen aufspritzen

Many women, but also more and more men, come to our private practice for dermatology and aesthetics in Munich because they suffer from thin lips and would like to have them plumped up. Lips that appear thin are usually inherited, but can also result from the natural aging process. It is also possible that the teeth stand inward and virtually “take” the lips. A wonderful method of injecting the lips is hyaluronic acid. But what about the durability of the result? In this article we will give you basic information.

Hyaluronic acid gives volume

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the body that is found almost everywhere. Thus, in large proportions, it shapes the shape and function of the eye vitreous body, bones, intervertebral discs and joints. Above all, however, hyaluronic acid is found in or under the skin. Here it provides volume, elasticity and resilience.

With increasing age, the production and thus also the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases. As a result, changes can take place and volume loss can occur – especially where the skin is concerned. This can be seen, for example, in gravitational wrinkles, sunken areas under the eyes or on the cheeks, and also in lips that become narrower.

For more lip volume: lip injections with hyaluronic acid

We can compensate for volume deficits by injecting hyaluronic acid from the outside. We inject the substance under the skin of your lips with special cannulas. Since the substance has the amazing ability to bind an incredible amount of water, creating a kind of gel, we can provide more fullness in your lips.

Optimize lip contour

It is not only possible for us to add fullness to the upper and lower lip, but also to improve your lip contour. By inserting hyaluronic acid, we can achieve a more distinct and beautiful shape on you. Your lips will be more contrasted and more clearly shaped at the edges. For example, we can use it to make the cupid’s bow on the upper lip more prominent.

Lip wrinkle removal

There are many causes that can lead to the development of lip wrinkles or wrinkles around the lips. These include the effects of the natural aging process, weak connective tissue, intense facial expressions, damaging UV radiation, fine dust or even the side effects of smoking. For example, we can treat your lip wrinkles with hyaluronic acid or botulinum.

Lip injections: durability of hyaluronic acid

If you are thinking about having your lips injected, you are naturally wondering how long the treatment with hyaluronic acid will last. Basically, the body breaks down the substance – at least partially – after an average of three to six months. However, this does not mean that the lip augmentation is no longer visible after this time. The effect is just less obvious. The degradation of hyaluronic acid proceeds individually for each patient.

In the case of an initial treatment, the degradation effect is usually greater. If desired, we can follow up with follow-up treatments after a few months, at intervals of nine to twelve months. This allows us to maintain the result. In addition, lip injections stimulate the formation of collagen connective tissue. This means that after several lip augmentation treatments you can expect a permanent result.
