But with the passage of time, lip shape and volume begins to deteriorate which might be due to hereditary factors, photodamage, smoking, or diseases. This issue can be dealt with by lip augmentation.
However, if you are considering lip treatment, it’s important to keep safety in mind- before you reach for over-the-counter plumping products or at DIY. A cosmetic dermatologist is your best go-to area for safe and natural-looking lip augmentation to achieve the best result.
Lip augmentation is a simple and fast procedure that can give you smoother and fuller lips, which is achieved by injectable dermal fillers.
As we grow in age, skin loses essential fat and protein such as elastin and collagen – which give structure to the skin and make it look plumping, bouncing, and youthful. Well, fortunately for you, there’s a treatment that can help with this, a treatment known as dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are injectable products containing 100% hyaluronic acid to boost lip volume, smooth vertical lines, and enhance lip shape. During the treatment procedure, the common dermal fillers product used are Juvederm and Restylane. The injectable fillers stimulate the production of collagen, so there will be permanent collagen production from each treatment. These injections last about six months; for a better result, the treatment must be periodically repeated.
If you choose to go forward with lip injection to get your desired fuller lip, be sure to expect a quick procedure, which includes:
During the injection, taking place at your dermatologist’s office, the doctor will use a substance to numb the area. This is done to prevent any feeling of pain and stop the occurrence of side effects after treatment.
Then a marker will be used to mark the injection area and inject the area with a thin needle containing hyaluronic acid fillers.
After injection, the fillers stimulate collagen production which pumps the lips from the inside out and works to replace worn-out fats and protein to smoothen lines and wrinkles around the lips thereby adding volume to hollow areas. And also attract and draw in water. Well, the water it attracts and holds underneath the lip skin helps to create the perfect plump.
So, that’s how dermal fillers work to enhance your lip. If you’re thinking of going for this treatment, be assured that as long as the treatment is performed by a qualified dermatologist, serious complications will be extremely rare. With your lip volume, shape, and lines boosted, you should be able to see results immediately as you stay in the glow with your full confidence back.
