The shape and size of your lips can enhance or detract from your overall appearance. Youthful, plump, and shapely lips are every adult’s dream. However, the effects of aging can cause your lips to thin and stretch, and this makes you look stern or annoyed. It can also make others see you as looking older. Lip enhancement can help, but it’s important to consult with us before deciding which procedure will work for you. The most common types of lip enhancements these days are dermal fillers, and for good reason. These cosmetic treatments are simple to perform, and there is little risk of side effects.
When to Consider Lip Enhancement
If you have always had rather thin lips, it’s probably due to hereditary factors. This is important to understand because the structure of your lips is created by the position and strength of the surrounding tissues including muscles above and below the lip line. If you once enjoyed plump, full lips complete with an attractive dove swoop but are now experiencing some thinning, a plumping filler may be just the answer. This degenerative reshaping of the lips is common in middle-aged adults and can be treated with acid filler injections.
How Filler Injections Plump the Lips
A hyaluronic acid-based filler is injected into the lip area. This acid draws in and holds moisture. The acid stays in the affected area for quite a long time. During a consultation, we will examine the lips and design a treatment that involves injecting the solution in carefully chosen points around the lips. It’s important to understand that lip enhancement through the injection of filler compounds won’t bring about permanent results. Repeat injections will eventually be needed for ongoing benefits.
A typical filler treatment for lip enhancement takes just minutes to perform in the comfort of our office. There is no set downtime after the treatment, and positive results become noticeable very quickly. Treatments are designed to be quick and convenient.
