Are Dermal Filler Lip Injections The Next Trend Among Young Adults?

According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, cosmetic dermal filler treatments, or soft tissue fillers, increased by 8% last year. Dermal fillers are designed to add volume to certain areas of the face, like cheeks or lips. One celebrity who has been all over the media with her luscious lips is Kylie Jenner. It was recently confirmed that Jenner did receive cosmetic fillers in order to enhance her pout.

“I have temporary lip fillers, it’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do,” Jenner stated in a recent clip from the show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Could Jenner’s successful show spur more young adults like her to want to gain cosmetic lip fillers? Maybe. Unlike plastic surgery, dermal filler injections are temporary. They last anywhere from 6-12 months. There is no downtime to the treatment, and the results are almost immediate.

Dermal Filler Training

Medical professionals are the only ones who can perform these cosmetic injections once they’ve received training. But with the dermal filler trend on the rise, many doctors and nurses are looking into adding cosmetic injectables to their list of services. It’s not uncommon to see medical spas working alongside medical faculties and doctors offices. Some doctor’s offices even specialize in an array of cosmetic injectable services for clients. When a client builds trust with a medical professional, they’re more apt to want to go with them for these types of cosmetic treatments.

Our medical aesthetic courses include hands-on treatments with Botox, dermal fillers, and sclerotherapy. Medical professionals can also learn other in-demand nonsurgical cosmetic services like laser hair removal, radiofrequency skin tightening, BHRT, chemical peels, and more.
