If you are unhappy with the shape of your lips, you are not alone. Many people are either born with thin lips or find that they lose shape and volume with age. Lip augmentation is an incredibly popular type of non-surgical cosmetic procedure. It can give you plumper, fuller lips that make you want to smile.
What Is Lip Augmentation?
The most popular type of lip augmentation involves injecting fillers into and/or around the mouth. In the past, collagen and fat injections were common. These days most procedures use hyaluronic acid in order to accomplish lip plumping. It is safer than the older options while still giving you dramatic results.
Hyaluronic acid is something that is naturally found in the body, making it easy for these fillers to bond and be effective. Once injected, the water that is drawn to the filler gives you instant results. The hyaluronic acid also attracts more water to the area over time.
Using these fillers for lip augmentation allows us to improve the shape, structure, and volume of your lips. On top of adding plumpness, certain fillers are great at getting rid of vertical lines.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for Lip Augmentation
There are many reasons why people love their results with this type of cosmetic procedure. Some of the highlights include:
- Results are easily customizable. You can have your injections done over a few different appointments so we can gradually approach the look you are going for.
- There is little chance of an allergic reaction. Since these fillers are made based on a substance naturally in your body, it is likely your body will have a bad reaction to it.
- Results are reasonably long-lasting. Although they are not permanent, your improvements will last you for months before worrying about maintenance treatments.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Lip Augmentation?
Nearly anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their lips can benefit from one of these procedures. Good candidates will be in good general health and have realistic expectations about their results. Certain medical conditions may make these procedures a bad choice. Your medical history is something that we can discuss at a consultation.
