What Dermal Fillers Can Do for Your Lips

BOTOX® & Dermal Fillers Rancho Mirage & Palm Springs, CAOur admiration for full, luscious lips can lead to frustration if our own lips do not fit the model adored by society. Many people have lips that are naturally thin. The aging process only exacerbates this problem because the drop in facial structure that occurs with age leads the upper lip to elongate out to the sides. In most situations, thin and deflated lips can be remedied with dermal fillers. In fact, some of the latest dermal fillers to become available are manufactured specially for the lips.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, lip augmentation is one of the leading cosmetic procedures performed today. The FDA has approved several hyaluronic acid fillers for use in the lip area, and these products have consistently achieved results that look and feel natural.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers

You may have seen the fantastic ways that dermal fillers can transform the lips. So many celebrities have dramatically altered their mouth that some people are hesitant to obtain fillers for a fuller pout. There is nothing to fear. One of the primary benefits of getting lip augmentation with an appropriate injectable is that your provider can start out slow. Many of our patients who want to enhance naturally-thin lips do so gradually. Injections can always be spread out over time to give you a chance to see subtler changes in your appearance.

The dermal fillers that are used to augment the lips, including Juvéderm Volbella and Restylane Silk, are made with hyaluronic acid. This is another beneficial aspect of treatment because hyaluronic acid is an organic ingredient. The body produces it naturally. Therefore, when we introduce this ingredient into the skin, the body will not reject it.

An obvious benefit of lip augmentation with dermal fillers is that the shape and fullness of the lips improve. On a larger scale, this improvement has a positive effect on the youthfulness of the entire face. The thin consistency of lip fillers is ideal for adding volume in the central areas of the lips and also for reducing the appearance of the tiny lines that develop around the lip line.

Lip augmentation using dermal fillers is fast, painless, and has no downtime. The effects of filler treatment can last three to four months and can be adjusted based on your needs at each treatment session.
