Lip fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today, allowing individuals to reshape and add volume to their lips. Lip filler is an FDA-approved treatment for patients 21 years old and over, but patients 18 years and older may still be able to receive treatment. Patients under 18 years old will likely be turned away by reputable injectors. Texas Surgical Dermatology, led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Tri H. Nguyen, provides lip fillers to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations.
What are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are hyaluronic acid injectable treatments that increase the volume of the lips.
Lip Filler Procedure
Prior to treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the lips to minimize pain and discomfort. Once the lips are numbed, your injector will inject the filler areas of the lips that could benefit from treatment. Lip filler treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete, and you can resume your normal activities immediately after. Some swelling and bruising may occur but will resolve within a few days. Results are visible immediately and usually last about one to one and a half years.
Is it Safe To Get Dermal Fillers Before 21 Years Old?
Although the FDA only approves the use of dermal fillers for patients 21 years old and older, patients may still receive lip fillers before that age. The main concerns with treating a young patient with dermal fillers are their motive for treatment and whether they are mentally, physically, and emotionally mature enough to be receiving lip fillers.
Trust Your Injector
To achieve the results you want and avoid the possibility of negative outcomes, it is essential to seek treatment with a qualified provider for dermal filler injections. The best providers to visit for this kind of treatment are board-certified plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and any injectors who are working under their direct supervision. If your provider denies doing your lip fillers due to your age, do not look for treatment from someone who is not qualified to carry out the process. Texas Surgical Dermatology, led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Tri H. Nguyen, provides lip fillers to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations.
