Why Choose Dermal Fillers for Lip Augmentation?
As we age our lips begin to lose volume, and there are some people who have naturally thin lips. Lip augmentation is a treatment option that can effectively restore or simply provide volume to the lips. It can also smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth for a youthful appearance. Many individuals choose to have a lip augmentation with dermal fillers because it is a non-surgical way to plump the lips.
Lip Augmentation With Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers that are used for lip augmentation are made with hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies and can retain a much greater amount of its own weight in water. This is what causes the cells in your lips to expand, which causes fuller lips.
What are the Advantages of a Lip Augmentation With Dermal Fillers?
There are many benefits that hyaluronic acid dermal fillers offer. You have more control over desired lip volume than with traditional implants, and the injections can be administered during one appointment or gradually over several. In addition, dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid typically result in less bruising than other dermal fillers, and the results are long-lasting.
What is it Like to Have a Lip Augmentation via Dermal Fillers?
Lip injections are administered quickly in your doctor’s office, and the procedure doesn’t require downtime. Before the injections are administered, an anesthetic cream may be applied to the lip area to minimize discomfort. The results can last anywhere from six to twelve months depending on the individual; when the lips return to their original shape, they do so without taking on a saggy or deflated look.
