What You Must Know About Collagen Lip Injections (Part I) CandyLipz September 2, 2014 Collagen Lip Injections Collagen lip injections… are you thinking about getting your lips done? There are sensible questions you must ask yourself before you decide to spend a fortune on lip injections. * How large do you want your lips to be? Collagen lip injections can be quite expensive. The charges are about $500 per syringe. Do not be disappointed if the result of 1 syringe is barely noticeable after the swelling goes down and your lips won’t look much different than before. To get really the huge lips that you expected to see, the charges may run up to $2000! This may include the reshaping and contouring of the Cupid’s bow, philtrum, and your overall lip definition and projection. In some cases, collagen is injected into the inside of the upper lip to recreate these effects. As a warning, your results may not look natural because fillers are viscous. Many have reported to have developed the “duck bill” look. * How physically active are you? It is a factor that you must consider because movements may cause the body to eat up your collagen quicker! This is why many people said that their collagen lip injections only lasted a few weeks! The more you move or talk, the more likely that your lips will deflate more quickly. * How old are you? Your age is important if you decide to get collagen lip injections. The best age to get collagen lip injections ranges between 30 to 55 years old. It has to do with your immune system. If you have a strong immune system, your body will absorb the collagen very quickly and if you have a weak immune system, you might develop nodules and lumps because your body cannot get rid of it. * Are you willing to take a risk of injecting collagen from cowhide into your body? A few things to think about- Is there anything that is 100% pure? How will you know if that 0.0001 % of cowhide impurities will not affect your body’s immunological response down the road? In the 90s, people were injecting cowhide collagen into the face to remove wrinkles and the Texas Department of Health showed that collagen injections may be linked to a rare connective-tissue disorder. You be the judge. * Collagen lip fillers have weight. A 1 cc collagen injection weighs 1 gram. One gram is about the weight of a cap to a pen. As we age, the lips lengthen and the philtrum gets longer- the philtrum is the distance between the upper lip and the area under the nose. The perfect golden ratio for the philtrum is the width of the eye of your iris. A longer philtrum is not desirable. Since, collagen lip injections are a lifetime habit, if you have the money to splurge, you must know that weight will eventually affect the length of your lips.
