Lip filler treatments are becoming a popular way to add youth and shape to a face. Over time, lips naturally lose plumpness and volume, so lip enhancements are a great way to bring back these lost qualities naturally. This simple procedure is also done to minimize fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the mouth, adding to an even more youthful look.
What Are Lip Filler Injections?
Lip enhancements can be done by performing an injectable procedure. Dermal fillers are injected into strategically chosen areas of the lip or areas surrounding the lips. Often, injections into the lips can be just as important in creating volume as injections into the surrounding areas. For example, to decrease lines and wrinkles on the upper lip, one will sometimes want to fill in the lip lines and lift the corners of the mouth. Often if both aspects of lip enhancement are not completed, the lips can appear unbalanced. The vermilion border, cupids bow, the philtrum and the actual lip body are the parts commonly enhanced.
One of the highly demanded lip treatments is the Restylane Silk. This dermal filler treatment is an advanced formula of Restylane that recently gained FDA approval! This dermal filler treatment has proven to offer a lasting and effective solution to those who would like to restore shape and volume to their lips. Also, it is effective at erasing fine lines around the mouths to give you that robust and youthful appearance once again! Because of this, Restylane Silk has become quite popular and also highly demanded by people of all ages.
Before the dermal lip fillers are injected into the lips, an anesthetic is injected to numb the lips. Next, dermal fillers are injected into the pre-determined areas, either in the lips, around the lips, or a combination of both.
After the procedure is complete, some minor swelling and bruising may occur, but this will subside shortly. Generally, there is some swelling that begins immediately after the injections. Use an icepack to reduce this. Avoid strenuous exercise and softly massage any small lumps that you feel in your lips twice a day.
The cost of lip enhancements varies depending on the number of injections you receive and how many parts of the lips you have injected. Overall, lip enhancements are considered an affordable cosmetic procedure. For a lip augmentation procedure, you should always have the procedure performed by a trained physician.
It is always important when considering any treatment that you ensure you are speaking with professionals in a safe and friendly environment. Be sure to communicate your expectations and have your questions answered, it is your body and the outcomes should be as desired.
