Why are Lip Fillers so Painful?

Why are lip fillers so painful? With a skilled and properly trained medical professional, lip fillers are in fact not painful at all. In general, lip fillers are not usually considered a painful cosmetic procedure. However, the lips are one of the most sensitive parts of the body so many first-time filler patients are often worried about the pain level of the non-invasive procedure.

Lips are composed of over a million extremely sensitive nerve endings. This makes lips one of the most sensitive parts of the body, they are 100 times more sensitive than fingertips! Unlike most other parts of the body, lips have no defensive membrane to protect them, and have only six layers of cells. Most other parts of the body have on average sixteen layers of cells. As a result of the thin barrier of the lips, the blood vessels are also closer to the surface of the lips, which gives the lips their rent tint.

Lips are made of a muscle called the orbicularis orbis. The orbicularis orbis is a complex and multi layered muscle that surrounds the lips. When this muscle ages, sagging of the lips can occur. Thus, massaging this muscle can help prevent the physical appearance of wrinkles or sagging in the area. With age, the decrease in the body’s supply of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid is inevitable. All these compounds contribute to the often desired youthful and plump lip look. Thus, when our body produces less elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid our lips will show signs of aging. Other environmental factors such as sun damage and nutrition can accelerate the aging process of the lips as well. Whether an individual is wishing to restore their youthful lips, or just wish for a fuller look, lip fillers are a very popular, easy, and safe procedure to restore lip volume.

Although lip filler is injected into one of the most sensitive parts of the body, lip enhancement procedures at Scarless MedSpa with Dr. Deepak Dugar are generally not considered painful. Dr. Dugar sometimes chooses to use a topical numbing cream such as lidocaine before injecting anything into his patients, but this is not always necessary.
