Lip fillers have become a popular way to enhance natural beauty, creating fuller, more defined lips. At Skin Mix, here in Denver Sunnyside, we understand you might have questions about this procedure. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you make an informed decision.


What are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are injectable treatments that add volume and shape to your lips. They are primarily made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, making them safe and effective for enhancing lip fullness.


Are Lip Fillers Safe?

Yes, when administered by a licensed professional, lip fillers are safe. At Skin Mix, our experienced practitioners ensure the highest safety standards, using only FDA-approved products.


How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

Lip fillers typically last between 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of filler used and your body’s metabolism. Over time, your body naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid.


Will My Lips Look Overdone?

Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty. We focus on creating a look that is both beautiful and natural. The amount of filler used is tailored to your specific desires and needs.


Is the Procedure Painful?

Most clients report minimal discomfort. Lip fillers contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, to help ease any pain. Additionally, we can apply a topical numbing cream to further minimize discomfort.


What is the Recovery Time?

There is minimal downtime. You may experience some swelling or bruising, but this typically subsides within a few days.


Can Lip Fillers Be Reversed?

Yes, one of the benefits of hyaluronic acid fillers is that they can be dissolved by an enzyme called hyaluronidase, effectively reversing the treatment if needed.


How Should I Prepare for My Appointment?

Avoid blood thinners like aspirin, and supplements like fish oil or vitamin E a week before your appointment, as they can increase bruising. It’s also recommended to come with clean, makeup-free lips.


How Often Can I Get Lip Fillers?

You can safely get lip fillers as often as needed to maintain your desired look. Most clients return for touch-ups every 6-12 months.


How Much Do Lip Fillers Cost?

The cost varies depending on the amount of filler used and the specific product chosen. We provide a detailed cost breakdown during your consultation.
