Both weight loss and aging can be really rough on your skin and lips. If you have lost weight, your overall health may benefit, but you also tend to be left with skin and lips that have lost volume and have started showing signs of lines and wrinkles. The aging process itself can also lead to the same results. A growing number of Annapolis residents are seeking safer, less risky alternatives to traditional surgical procedures that still offer results that are noticeable. Fortunately, we offer lip fillers at Adoro Medical Spa in Severna Park.
What are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are injectable gels that help restore volume to lips that have lost it due to aging, weight loss or other reasons. Since full, luscious lips are considered to be desirable, it becomes very noticeable when they grow thin and can have a significant negative impact on your appearance.
What Does Treatment with Lip Fillers Involve?
Lip filler treatments are performed in the comfort of our office near Annapolis. Most lip fillers supplement natural substances that have been lost due to the aging process. Hyaluronic acid, for example, is a material your own body makes in sufficient amounts when you are young. As you grow older, your body begins producing progressively less of this important skin component, which leads to thinner skin, particularly around your lips.
Hyaluronic acid is important because it attracts and binds water molecules, which has a plumping effect on your lips. As it becomes depleted, your lips grow thinner and develop vertical lines around them. By supplementing the lips with a hyaluronic acid lip filler, we are rectifying this deficiency, and the process actually reverses. You should notice an immediate plumping effect in your lips and a diminishment of lines around them.
