Improving Lip Volume
Lips have a significant role in face aesthetic perception, and lip augmentation is one of the most commonly requested aesthetic procedures. Non-permanent dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid (HA), such as Juvederm, augment the lips to give you fuller, plumper lips. Several HA fillers are available today, a natural substance found in the body.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) is a type of temporary dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the joints, eyes, and skin. In the skin, hyaluronic acid attracts water, which allows the skin to become more hydrated. As we age, the fat, muscles, bone, and skin in our faces begin to thin. This loss of volume leads to either a sunken or sagging appearance of the face, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and thin lips. Injectable HA reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and facial folds and creates structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are seen immediately.
A female in her mid 30’s came in with concerns regarding her lips’ volume loss and shape. It was clear that she had lost volume in her lips, which gave her the appearance of thin lips. After carefully reviewing her options and keeping her medical history in mind, we decided to proceed with hyaluronic acid fillers by using a blunt cannula to allow the needle to pass through, requiring only one poke. This specific procedure was done in under 15 minutes, including the numbing cream application process. Click here for cases 1007
Lip fillers procedure
We used a blunt cannula to allow the needle to go through smoothly. You may feel a slight poke, almost like a pinch, during the injection of the fillers. To minimize bruising and swelling, the chiller was used after the procedure.
The cost of this procedure varies depending on how much filler is needed. One syringe of filler was used; therefore, the price was $650.00 plus tax.
The main side effects are bruising and swelling, which lasts up to 4-5 days but varies with each person, depending on their skin type.
