This injectable gel is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid particles that are spherical and uniform. This creates a gel that is durable, smooth, and malleable for more natural-looking results. Once you inject the hyaluronic acid gel into your patient’s lips, the particles hold on to moisture, restoring both hydration and volume. This volume helps to support and define the lips, smoothen out wrinkles around the lips, and to add plumpness.
The results of 1 treatment session can last about 6 to 9 months; however, the residence time of the gel can vary on an individual basis depending on the patient’s age, skin condition, health status, and lifestyle habits. The amount of filler administered and the type of injection technique used can also affect the duration of action.
