Seven Myths about Lip Filler in Toronto

Myth #1: Lip Filler Is Addictive

Although most people who undergo lip filler in Toronto love the results so much that they choose to maintain them, this does not mean that the procedure is addictive. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are temporary, which means that they are gradually dissolved by your body. Once dissolved, your lips will return to normal, and there is no need to get more filler unless you choose to do so.

Achieving Natural-Looking Results

Myth #2: Lip Fillers Always Look Fake

While many patients worry that a lip augmentation will lead to fake or plastic-looking results, a skilled injector will be able to achieve an incredibly subtle, natural-looking outcome. This means that while your appearance will be enhanced, your friends and family members will not be able to pinpoint the difference unless you choose to tell them.

Myth #3: Lip Injections Are Very Painful

Although lip injections may look painful, in reality most patients describe the pain as very tolerable. Most hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers contain lidocaine, which takes effect once the product is injected, helping patients keep comfortable throughout the procedure. In addition, a dental block can be injected ahead of time to ensure that you do not experience any pain.

Myth #4: Lip Filler Cannot Be Undone If I Don’t Like the Results

Although it is true that fillers such as calcium hydroxlapatite and poly-l-lactic acid can take 1 to 2 years to break down, HA fillers such as Restylane Silk can be dissolved immediately using hyaluronidase, an eraser enzyme. This means that patients can test out lip fillers in Toronto and reverse the results if they don’t like them.

Top 5 Dermal Filler Facts

Adding Volume to tThe Lips

Myth #5: Lip fillers stretch the lips out and leave them looking deflated

Opting to get lip fillers is not a lifelong commitment. While they will temporarily plump your pout, your lips will not appear deflated after the filler dissolves. In fact, the opposite may be true, as HA filler actually encourages collagen production, which means that it often thickens the skin’s dermis, leaving patients with fuller lips long after the body’s natural enzyme dissolves the filler.

Myth #6: Lip injections are only suitable for patients who have thin lips

Another myth about Toronto lip filler is that it is only good for individuals who have thin lips, as its main purpose is adding volume to the lips. However, lip filler can be used to treat a number of common concerns, including asymmetry, disproportionate lips, turned-down corners, and an undefined Cupid’s bow. In addition, lip fillers can effectively improve the appearance of dry or cracked lips, as they give a smoother, glossier appearance.

Myth #7: Filling in smile lines will change the appearance of your smile

Provided that you select a qualified and experienced injector, filling in your smile lines will not change the appearance of your smile, because it can be done by injecting filler into the cheeks area rather than into the smile lines themselves. However, it is true that injecting too much product into the lines around your mouth can make the lips appear puffy and unnatural.
