If you have taken a look in the mirror lately and noticed that your lips are not as full as you would like them to be, you can solve the problem of thinning lips by choosing the right dermal filler. A dermal filler, otherwise known as an injectable wrinkle filler, can be used to plump up the skin in many areas of the body including multiple areas of the face. Remarkable results can be achieved in a fraction of the time and for much less than you would pay for a traditional plastic surgery procedure.
Dermal Fillers for Thinning Lips
Cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of the lips are known as lip augmentation procedures. A dermal filler can be injected into the lips in order to change the shape and/or size of your lips. There are a host of dermal fillers that can be used for this purpose. However, the most commonly used types are made from hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, making it one of the safest substances to use for creating dermal fillers. There is a very low risk of a patient experiencing an allergic reaction to it. It’s also absorbed very easily by the body, meaning the risk of bodily rejection of it is very low. In the past, collagen was used for most of these types of procedures. However, research shows that there is an even less chance of experiencing undesirable results if hyaluronic is used as a base material over collagen.
Key Benefits of Dermal Fillers
The results of a treatment with dermal fillers are not permanent. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, it’s absorbed by it very easily. This absorption is very safe, but it still takes time to occur because the other ingredients in the formula delay this absorption process. This is why the results from lip augmentation procedures can last up to twelve months before another treatment is necessary. Sometimes a treatment might be necessary after about six months to maintain the desired results.
The injections of dermal filler can be given over the course of multiple visits. This allows our professionals to give the lips time to recover and keep track of results. The shape and size of the lips can then be improved upon in subsequent visits until the desired results are achieved.
There is no need to employ the traditional forms of plastic surgery to give your lips more shape and volume.
