Thin lips can be dramatically improved with non-surgical lip augmentation procedures. Using state of the art dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm, lips can be enhanced to appear youthful and plump. Results can vary, but reception is generally very positive.
Unlike artificial fillers, Restylane and Juvederm are derived from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring material in the body. Because of their hydrophilic nature, these dermal fillers attract water to the lip area and tend to prevent sagginess and the lumpy appearance of artificial products. Consider your lip filler options; you have more to choose from than you might expect.
Chosen dermal fillers are injected into the lip area by a trained and experienced professional in an outpatient setting. Typically, a dental block is used to numb the lips and surrounding area. If a patient declines a dental block, a topical numbing agent is used in conjunction with ice to cut down on post-procedure swelling. Receive the filler treatment that will satisfy you completely.
It is recommended to have Restylane or Juvederm injections around the lip area to support the lips, and also to add to the overall appearance of the lower third of the face. Results tend to last anywhere from three months to a year. Non-surgical lip augmentation can be a safe, effective way to improve the fullness of thin lips.
