Lip fillers have gained a lot of popularity in the media over the last few years with celebrities either going to the extreme or choosing to dissolve once over plumped lips. Dermal fillers are a safe and well-known treatment for adding natural volume and lift to thin lips. More recently, there has been a trend of using fillers to achieve significantly plumped butterfly lips on social media.
Butterfly lips involve using Steri-Strips to lift the lips and then injecting a significant amount of dermal filler to over-emphasise the Cupid’s bow. This treatment makes your lips slightly separate at the top which reflects the appearance of butterfly wings. We have seen reality television personalities like Katie Price and Lauren Googer recently take on this over-plumped procedure.
Despite this trend, other reality stars like Love Island contestants, Faye Winter and Molly Mae, have chosen to dissolve their lip filler so they can go back to a more natural look. As more people look to get their lips dissolved, it’s important to know the reasons behind it and what’s involved in the procedure.
Why do People Get Their Lip Filler Dissolved?
There are many reasons why people get their filler dissolved. Whether it’s for an aesthetic change or health reasons, below we address the main reasons behind this procedure.
1. Asymmetric Fullness or Hardened Bumps
Without proper cosmetic training, inexperienced practitioners may inject lip fillers in a way that can cause health issues or asymmetric problems to the shape of your lips. There are also additional problems from overfilling where lumps and bumps harden across your lips.
Omniya’s team of Aesthetic clinicians are not only medically qualified, but they are trained artists. Each one of them will use the natural shape of your lips to contour and enhance with effective dermal filler. Only trained medical professionals should handle lip enhancement treatments to make sure you receive the results you desire.
2. Allergic Reaction
Sometimes, people can have allergic reactions to filler, which contains hyaluronic acid, although it is not always common. Other allergic reactions can also be caused by the numbing agent too. Usually, symptoms include itching, tenderness or swelling whereby the lips grow to an extreme size that can bring severe discomfort.
At Omniya, our professionally trained team will have a consultation with you prior to your treatment to ensure you are not at risk.
3. Product Migration
Product migration refers to when the dermal filler has spread above and beyond the lip border as a result of overfilling or being incorrectly injected by an inexperienced practitioner. The lip filler we use contains a high-quality hyaluronic acid gel that does not spread and holds long-lasting results of up to 9 months.
4. Unnatural Appearance
People may revert back to a natural appearance either because they are self-conscious of overfilling or looking to change back to their original shape. Omniya Clinic London holds a reputation for creating lasting, discreet and natural-looking lip enhancement treatments for all of our clients. We believe less is more and always ensure your lips look natural and full.
Does Lip Filler Completely Dissolve?
Lip filler can be dissolved as long as it is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler treatment. In our treatment, we use trusted dermal fillers brands such as Teoxane (Teosyal) and Allergan (Juvederm) which are non-permanent and naturally break down over time.
In the unlikely event that someone is not happy with their results, we dissolve their fillers with a naturally occurring enzyme called Hyaluronidase which will return the lips to the original shape and size quickly. This procedure is trusted by healthcare professionals and has been used in treatment for over 20 years, making it a safe option with little aftercare needed.
Is Getting Lip Filler Dissolved Painful?
Dissolving your lip filler may cause some discomfort but usually, it shouldn’t be painful. You may feel a stinging sensation from the initial injection but with a numbing cream, the discomfort should ease.
