Lip Lift vs. Dermal Fillers, Which Is Best for You?

Lip liftLip lifts and dermal fillers are both used to achieve similar results for your lips. Your lips are more than just part of your mouth but are a key component of your facial beauty. That’s why many people turn to things like lip lifts and dermal fillers to give their lips a helping hand. If you’re considering different ways to boost your lips, then you may have wondered what the difference between these two things is. Let’s explore the difference between a lip lift and dermal fillers.

Lip Lift

A lift lip is a surgical cosmetic procedure done to permanently improve the aesthetics of your lips. The procedure is relatively simple and straightforward as well. The space between the bottom of your nose and the top of your lip is strategically shortened to ‘lift’ your lip and give it more volume. The tissue removed accentuates the cupid bow and enhances the overall look of your lips. This procedure is often done just with local anesthetics to numb the treatment area. Being put to sleep is often not needed.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used to cosmetically enhance the lips. Dermal fillers are used for things like wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin imperfections. However, dermal fillers can be used to plump the lips and add volume. Dermal fillers are made out of different materials, like hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers can be an appealing option because no surgical process is required, it’s quick, and there is no recovery downtime.

However, some people may not find dermal fillers attractive because they are temporary. Dermal fillers last multiple months, depending on the filler used. Multiple treatment sessions over the years are needed to maintain results. This is because the body will naturally metabolize the filler over time.
