Looking to perfect your pout with lip filler? While the aesthetics industry is constantly evolving with new technologies and products, it's important to understand that not all dermal fillers are created equal, especially when it comes to the lips. Lip filler migration is a common issue that can lead to an unnatural and puffy appearance, but luckily, there's a solution: hyaluronidase. In this blog post, we'll dive into the details of this enzyme and how it can help dissolve unwanted lip filler, as well as discuss the best product options for achieving the perfect pout. So if you're looking to wipe the slate clean and start fresh with your lip filler journey, read on!
A LITTLE BACKGROUND
The world of aesthetics is in a constant state of flux. As technology and science continue to advance, so too does the aesthetics industry. Back when lip fillers first gained popularity, there were only a handful of dermal filler options for injectors to choose from, and there was no real consensus on the best lip-specific injection techniques. Fortunately, we now have specialized dermal fillers that are soft, moveable, and have a lower water retention rate. As a result, they're less likely to migrate. Here at Contour Collection, we believe that only Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Kysse should be used for lip fillers.
WHAT IS LIP FILLER MIGRATION?
Lip filler migration is a hot topic that has been frequently discussed on social media platforms such as Instagram and TikTok. Many people have noticed that after layering lip fillers, they experience an unwanted puffy appearance in the area above the top lip. This is because the dermal filler may have been placed incorrectly or may not have been the best product choice. Some injectors have even placed lip fillers in the upper lip to try to prevent smoker's lines, which is a common type of vertical lip lines. However, a puffy upper lip is not natural and can be quite undesirable. Full stop.
HOW DO YOU DISSOLVE LIP FILLER?
Thankfully, there is a solution to lip filler migration: hyaluronidase. This enzyme breaks down hyaluronic acid, the primary ingredient in dermal fillers. Although dissolving lip fillers can be uncomfortable, we take steps to make the process as painless as possible. We begin the procedure by applying a topical numbing cream containing 20% benzocaine, 10% lidocaine, and 10% tetracaine. Then, we inject our own proprietary dissolving cocktail that includes hyaluronidase and some additional key ingredients to minimize discomfort. The procedure takes about 20 minutes, and within 24-48 hours, the upper lip will appear smaller and the lip border will become sharper and more defined. Dissolving will continue for about two weeks, which is why we wait a minimum of two weeks before adding any new hyaluronic acid to the area.
