Beautiful lips, such as those seen in TV commercials where a woman kisses a flower or smooches at the camera, aren’t what most of us have. Many women do, however, dream of having full, pouty lips. Various methods are used for lip enhancement, but one of the best options out there involves the use of dermal fillers.
Lip enhancement procedures are becoming more and more popular due to the amazing results they can provide, as well as the simplicity of the procedures. We can’t assure you that a lip enhancement procedure will make you look like a magazine model, but we can certainly help you enhance the overall appearance of your lips and face.
Issues with the Lips
Most often, our clients ask us how to treat their lips so that their face will have a more youthful appearance. The lips often become stretched and thin as we age and mature. This can make us look stern or annoyed, and it can also create an unbalanced look to the face.
We have a substance called hyaluronic acid in our bodies. It’s a natural substance that holds water in place. We produce less and less of it as we age, and this is one of the reasons our lips no longer have a plumped appearance and a natural swoop shape along the perimeter. Lip enhancement via dermal fillers can help correct this problem.
About Dermal Fillers
Some filler compounds are used to add volume or structure to the cheeks and alongside the nose. Several of these fillers can also be used to enhance the appearance of the lips. The fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule that holds moisture in the lip tissues.
These fillers are skillfully injected around the lip perimeter and sometimes directly into the lip tissue. The effect of the fillers becomes apparent very quickly and lasts for quite a while. Lip enhancement procedures are repeatable at regular intervals in order to maintain the results.
