A person’s lips have such a big impact in changing the way a person looks. It’s natural for our lips to lose their natural volume as we age. And because of their big impact on our appearance, I am not surprised that many of my patients become concerned about their lips and ask for ways to improve their appearance. One of the most common solutions that I recommend is lip enhancement or lip augmentations.
Lip enhancement is a procedure that will involve the use of dermal fillers to achieve plumper and fuller lips. Patients can choose from a variety of dermal fillers that can be used for lip enhancement and each type has its own advantages. The most common dermal filler that I use for lip enhancements are fillers that contain hyaluronic acid. Patients prefer this type of dermal filler because hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body which makes it safe to use.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers instantly improve the shape, the structure and add volume to the lips. The effect will last for as long as 6 months, after which another treatment will be needed in order to maintain the result. The good thing about this type of filler is that it gives us better control on how much dermal filler we can inject so that we can achieve the patient’s desired result. The whole procedure has very minimal swelling and bruising and the results last longer than other treatment options. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally in our system, this eliminates chances of allergic reactions to the active ingredient.
