Lip Augmentation (Filling)
Due to their dense vascular structure and their being moveable, lips react more naturally to hyaluronic acid enhanced specially for filling. Enhancing contours with volume increasing injectable dermal fillers is an extremely popular and aesthetic innovation. Lip augmentation is a filling treatment requiring a small injection.
It is new formula developed for the treatment of the sensitive area around lips. Anesthetic cream is applied to lip area before filling lips. Dermal fillers are injected through very thin needles into lips and contours. The treatment lasts about 15 to 20 minutes. Recommended time period for the next injection is 6 to 9 months. It is possible to increase the volume of lips, reshape lips by filling the contours and make them be moistened. The person may get back to his/her social life just after the treatment.
What is Lip Filling?
Upper lip is anatomically 1-2mm ahead of lower lip, and the lower lip is thicker than the upper lip. With hyaluronic acid fillers, his natural ratio might be ensured easily and safely. If your lips are already plump, it is unnecessary to increase their volume, but the ratio needs to be maintained. One of the reasons for the thinning of the lips is the loss of oestrogen. With a trace of filler, it may be possible to make lips rounder, fuller and contoured by increasing their volume. This is a procedure where hyaluronic acid having a high capacity to absorb water into the skin is injected into lip region under local anesthesia.
