In today’s society, we all want fuller, plumper lips, which are made possible by getting a lip augmentation.
Lip augmentation has received a great deal of attention over the last few years, seeing a 35% increase since the millennium. Even though this procedure has increased in popularity, most of the feedback has been negative. This is largely due to the publicized cases where the lips are overfilled or a misunderstanding of what makes an attractive lip. Collagen and fat transfer were the most common procedures for lip augmentation for many years; however, the evolution of dermal fillers has created newer, safer and longer lasting solutions.
Dermal fillers have become the most commonly used method for lip augmentation and there are many types of fillers that are used around the mouth and for lips. However, aesthetic experts have found that hyaluronic acid fillers are the better option for lip enhancement of all dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance that is found in the body and dermal fillers made of HA have several benefits.
The doctor can control the amount of substance injected to create optimal results.
It is possible to create the desired results gradually, making separate appointments to achieve the best results.
Bumps Dissolve Away
With the movement of lips, it is possible for lumps and bumps to form. HA fillers dissolve very easily.
HA fillers are known to cause less bruising and swelling when injected into lips.
The results of using HA dermal fillers last much longer than collagen and other dermal fillers.
Lower Risk of Allergic Reactions
Since HA is a naturally occurring substance our bodies are less likely to produce an allergic reaction to the filler solution.
HA filler treatments have one major benefit that no other injectable does, which is that using a solution called hyaluronidase, the treatment is reversible.
HA filler results last around 6 to 8 months
HA dermal fillers are the most popular soft tissue filler of all the facial rejuvenation options available. Fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are the most common injectable used for lip augmentations because they have become the most popular solutions for increasing volume. Juvederm is known for its smooth-gel solution that fills lips to create soft, but also voluptuous, fuller lips. Restylane is a great option for lip augmentation because it can also be used to reverse the sad mouth corner, this makes your upper lip more balanced.
There are a few different reasons why dermal fillers are better than the other options, such as, collagen and fat transfer. Collagen is a dermal filler, however, there are a few negative aspects of using collagen for lips:
- It only lasts for 3 to 4 months
- There is a chance that your skin will have an allergic reaction to collagen
- This treatment costs more than 3 times collagen and dermal fillers
- The results vary and there are greater risks due to the fat extraction process
