Lip AugmentationPublished on September 22, 2015 by Raymond Lee
Fuller, plumper lips have grown in popularity over the last decade and there are several options available to those seeking to improve the look of their lips. In addition, the vertical lip lines acquired over a lifetime can be nicely diminished with these fillers as well.
Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid are the most commonly used methods of lip augmentation and wrinkle reduction. They can be safely injected in and around the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body and is a safe method for increasing volume in the lips.
The newer options available today are safer than collagen, last longer and offer more natural results.
Benefits of Utilizing Dermal Fillers
- Decrease vertical lip lines
- Improved Shape
- Improved Structure
- Added Volume
The effects typically last 6 months, and then re-treatment will be needed.
There are several dermal fillers including:
Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips.
Control over lip volume. The amount of substance injected can be moderated, so the Dr. Lee has better control over how much lip volume is created.
Gradual results. The injections can be given over several appointments until the desired results are achieved.
Bumps are dissolvable. Any lumps and bumps can be dissolved easily.
Less bruising. There can be reduced bruising and swelling in comparison to other dermal fillers.
Lasting results. The results are reasonably long-lasting and natural.
