Type of Filler
One of the most common inquiries we get is “What is the difference between 1ml of thin, med and thick lip filler”.
The answer while straightforward in definition would still require a consultation with a professional injector. Choosing the right filler for you and your goals requires an in person assessment. Your lips need to be assessed for elasticity, shape, symmetry and if applicable the quality of any previous lip filler before any definitive recommendation could be made in regards to which filler to be used.
Some additional common questions asked which apply to all types of filler are:
Can I inject more than 1ml of lip filler?
Only 1ml of lip filler is able to be injected per session. How long before I can inject more lip filler?
You can inject another 1ml of lip filler 4 weeks post treatment. Why does my lip filler not last as expected?
Lip filler is made from naturally occurring compounded sugar. Most likely your body is breaking down the filler quicker due to your fast metabolism. If you're on medication this can play a role in the filler breaking down quicker. Certain skin treatments which use lasers and heat can also affect longevity.
Other factors for your filler breaking down faster is smoking, heavy exercise and stress. Regular treatments can help bind the fillers together making the filler longer lasting and keeping drinking plenty of water also support longer lasting filler.
