Lip Augmentation

Lips act as the guardian of the digestive system, and they also play a central role in the facial expressions. Aging, loss of facial fat, excessive use of cosmetics, leads to formation of wrinkles that matches the natural contours of the lips. Everyone desires to have fuller and plumper lips, and with lip augmentation, it is possible to improve the appearance of your lips, by adding volume, shape and structure. Lips enlargement is done with the help of injectable dermal fillers, and this procedure works by improving the dimension of the lips, with relation to the individual nose, and facial anatomy.

Dermal fillers can help to achieve the fuller lips, without any surgery. The fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is a natural material. The results offered by fillers are temporary, and one needs to repeat the treatment periodically to maintain the results. With increasing age, the body slows down the production of this acid and this makes the lips deflate and sag. Thin lips are a major concern for many. Hyaluronic acid fillers settle down in the intermolecular spaces of the skin and add volume to the lips. Dermaworld Skin Clinics can help you to achieve plump, natural-looking lips, by adding and restoring volume and smoothing the vertical lines around the mouth and lips.

  1. Those who have naturally thin lips and experienced age related decrease in the lip volume.
  2. Have a realistic expectation with the procedure.

Lip augmentation is a popular cosmetic treatment that helps one to achieve a natural, plumper, and fuller lips. Injectable dermal fillers are used in this treatment that is injected in the lips and around the mouth. The fillers contain hyaluronic acid that increases the lip volume, shape, and structure. The main benefit of using hyaluronic acid is that there is a control over lip volume, and the doctor has better control over how much lip volume is to be created. Another benefit of this treatment is that the results can be reversed, and one can attain the lip shape they desired for with fillers.

The results are immediately visible after the treatment. At first, the treated area or lips will be a little bit swollen and bruising can also occur. A majority of bruising and swelling usually improves after the first few days, and one can see the best results after two to three weeks when the swelling resolves.
