As of 2019 lip augmentation has become one the most commonly requested aesthetic treatment on the planet! Popular media has shown us what’s possible and taught us that a simple lip treatment can turn an average face to an extraordinary one. We’ve also seen the other side of it, a poorly augmented lip changes the entire face and steals away its natural beauty. With this in mind, it’s perfectly natural to feel some trepidation about letting someone alter your lips.
The good news is that most fillers used for this purpose are made with a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. This substance has an antidote, hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase enzyme breaks down Hyaluronic acid (lip filler) and dissolves the unwanted effect. Hyaluronic acids are unique in this vulnerability. For instance, there is no immediate antidote to an unwanted Botox treatment. This treatment is usually effective up to three weeks after treatment with any filler that is composed of Hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronidase works quickly with results beginning to show after just a few hours and lasting for up to twenty-four hours. This knowledge takes some of the initial fear out of trying hyaluronic acid fillers for most patients. Fillers are, in fact, an exceedingly safe way to enhance one’s looks and are rarely a permanent treatment. Since this is a naturally occurring acid, your own body will break it down over time.
