Injections that are used for the procedure involve injectable filler or bio-catylist. The most common lip implants used for the procedure are fat and collagen.
Temporary results can be provided by injections of the collagen taken from cow skin. In spite of the fact that the collagen is purified it may cause allergies with some people. That is why it is necessary to hold the sensitivity test before having the procedure.
Small needles are used for injecting collagen into lips. As the body absorbs collagen slowly, the results may last between one and three months. If necessary, the procedure can be repeated.
Fat is injected into lips with the help of small needles as well. The fat used for the procedure is harvested in some other part of the body. As usual it is abdomen and thighs. Before injecting it into the lips, the fat is purified. One of the most important advantages of this kind of lip enhancement is that it does not cause any allergic reactions. The results provided by fat injections are temporary. It is possible to make several procedures in order to achieve the best results.
