What Is a ‘Lift Edge’ Filler?



What Is a ‘Lift Edge’ Filler?

The truth is that some of us just are not as naturally smiley as others. We do not seem to radiant constant joy as much as other people and might have even been told that we are intimidating or unapproachable because of our resting face. It’s not that we want to look as if we are unhappy all of the time, but we just can’t help it.

What Is a ‘Lift Edge’ Filler

Thankfully, there’s a solution to this problem that many of us have to deal with—and it comes in the form of a lip filler.

Newest Lip Filler Trend

It is not a secret that lip fillers have seen an increase in popularity in recent years due to the influence of many celebrities such as Kylie Jenner. For years now, women have been using them to achieve a fuller, more plump look to their lips. Simply referred to as ‘lift edge filler’, this is only the latest installment in a long line of lip filler trends.

The same kind of fillers that are most commonly used to fill out the lips are now being injected into the corners of your lips at an upward angle. Doing so allows for your mouth to appear as if it droops less in the corners and that you have a soft, natural smile at all times instead. Think Leonardo da Vinci’s, Mona Lisa.

It is not surprising that this cosmetic procedure has become so popular; you can now quite literally turn your frown upside down. Who wouldn’t want to look happy all the time?

Where Lift Edge Filler Started

It might not surprise you to learn that this trending cosmetic procedure started in Seoul. South Korea is well known for being the home to some of the world’s most innovative beauty trends and the lift edge filler is among them. Its name comes from the direct Korean-to-English translation, which means “lifting of the smiling.”

What Results Can You Expect from Lift Edge Filler?

The lift edge filler treatment will raise the edge of your lips, giving you a more defined cupid’s bow. This will make your lips appear more prominent.

Following the procedure, you can expect to experience the same side effects as any other lip filler technique. This includes slight swelling, soreness, and maybe even bruising at your injection sites that can last for about 2 to 3 days. However, in some cases, it is even possible to apply lip gloss or lipstick to your lips 24 hours after your procedure, unless otherwise specified by your doctor.

Typically, the standard amount of time you can expect the results of the lift edge filler to last is around 6 months. However, this amount of time can fluctuate anywhere between as short as 3 months and up to a year. This is because we use our lips so much throughout the day while talking, chewing, and actually smiling. It is for this reason that our bodies will breakdown the injectable much more quickly than other facial filler treatments, requiring more treatments in the future to maintain the same results.

Other Reasons to Get Lift Edge Filler

While looking happier and friendlier without much effort is a considerable benefit of the lift edge filler, it is not the only reason someone might choose to have the procedure done. As we age, gravity takes hold of our bodies and many of us can begin to develop downward lip corners. For this reason, many mature women decide to have it done in order to correct the look of sagging lips, giving them a more youthful, natural appearance.

Lift edge filler is also a great complementary procedure to ‘cherry lips’—another popular Korean lip filler trend. Its name references the shape this particular lip filler technique creates. This is one that slightly differs from the plumping lip fillers that you may be more familiar with, instead of focusing on filling out only the middle areas of the upper and lower lips for a more natural aesthetic.
