Why you should not use more filler per treatment

What is the maximum amount of dermal filler you can add in one session?

Do not use more than 1 ml of filler in the lips per treatment.

Here is why:

- There is a chance of inverting the wet-dry border

- There is a chance of vascular occlusion

- There is a chance of getting lumps.

And of course less is always better! Otherwise the aesthetic result might be very different from what you wanted.

Injection within the wetdry border is optional if more volume is desired. Unlike the conventional cannula technique, this new technique offers artistry in accentuating the cupid's bow and redrawing the lips. That is why the injector has to be experienced enough to perform this technique. When done right, the result is beautiful!

How do I know if I have vascular occlusion on my lips?

Blanching is the whitening of the skin due to a lack of blood flow and is usually the first indication vascular occlusion has occurred.

This can be easily avoided if you visit a well-known, trusted aesthetician with the good knowledge of anatomy and who performs a slow injection technique.
