What Are Lip Injections?
You would be surprised how much your lips say about you. After all, there is something about plump lips that give off that more youthful appearance. Of course, as we get older we often find that our lips begin to thin out. If you are looking for an easy yet effective way to restore your lips to those younger years, then we can certainly help make that dream a reality through lip augmentation.
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that will help give you fuller, shapelier lips. A very simple and easy way to do this is through dermal fillers, which are injected into the lips and around the mouth. These thin needles can either contain a natural or synthetic substance that will help boost and plump the lips. One very common dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that is already naturally occurring within the body and is responsible for maintaining a youthful appearance.
Unfortunately, as we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases. However, by getting dermal fillers by our specially trained cosmetic dermatologists we can ensure that you get natural, beautiful results and safe, effective care every time. Since hyaluronic acid is already found within the body there is virtually no chance of complications.
It only takes a few minutes to administer these injections, and if the idea of injections has you squeamish we can also apply a numbing ointment over the area prior to treatment. Of course, even without numbing the area most patients report feeling nothing more than a slight pinch. Dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid help to improve the overall shape and volume of your lips, giving you the natural look you want.
These results will last about six months, after which you can come back in for further injections to maintain your results. Popular hyaluronic acid dermal fillers include Restylane and Juvederm. When you choose this cosmetic treatment for improving the appearance of your lips you’ll enjoy natural results, minimal side effects and virtually no allergic reactions, and the ability to control the results so that changes are gradual and more realistic. These results also last longer than other dermal fillers.
