Enhancing the shape of the lips is becoming a very popular cosmetic procedure. Today’s techniques for plumping and reshaping both the upper and lower lip are far in advance of what was available to consumers in years past. Lip enhancement via dermal fillers can create a truly youthful appearance.
Thinning lips, an unbalanced look to the lips, and wrinkling of the lip tissue can all be corrected via dermal filler injections. The type of filler used depends on the results expected by the client. Dr. Steven Dayan and his team are professional skin care specialists, and we highly recommend dermal fillers as a simple means to bring about a more youthful, healthy appearance to the lips. If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your lips and want to get back that youthful pout you enjoyed as a teen, we have good news for you.
What Dermal Fillers Correct
Lip enhancement includes various categories of treatment. Some of these involve implants, and others employ the technique of transferring fat or other tissue to the lips. Augmentation for the purpose of plumping the lips and adding volume in specified areas is often achieved with dermal fillers.
Filler injections can correct flattened lip surface, plump up thin lips, recreate pleasing lip contour, and even smooth away wrinkles on the lip skin. Dermal fillers can also straighten the lips, correcting the unwanted horizontal imbalance that can make your entire face look out of whack.
Acid-Based Filler Gels
These gels contain hyaluronic acid. This acid is a polysaccharide, and it is produced naturally by your body. However, as you age, the amount of acid in your system decreases. Hyaluronic acid helps maintain moisture balance in your skin and other tissues.
This gel is injected directly into specified areas of the lip tissue. At once, the acid attracts and binds with water molecules, and these molecules in turn bond with each other. The near-immediate result is a plumping effect. Most often, we recommend a hyaluronic-based filler gels if volume increase is the primary goal. Different densities of gel are available, and we’ll choose one of these based on our examination of your lip tissue during a consultation.
