Lip fillers Case # 1044
Lips are the most noticeable facial aspect, especially in females. Lip augmentation is a cosmetic treatment that may provide you with fuller lips. Nowadays, HA dermal filler injection is the most common lip augmentation treatment. Hyaluronic acid is our body’s natural filler.
Uses of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers in Lip Augmentation
HA fillers can be injected into the lips to modify the Shape, Structure, and Volume. The effect of fillers is not permanent, and they are expected to last around six months. Thicker fillers are made to last longer, but they do not feel smooth after injection
Several hyaluronic acid fillers are available on the market. Here are some of the most common used for lip injection:
- Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk
- Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella XC
A young female in her mid-twenties feels insecure about her upper lip. She wished to have a thicker and more defined lip. After taking her medical history and discussing the pros and cons of the HA fillers injection, we decided to go ahead with a full syringe between the upper and lower lip. Most of the syringe was injected via a blunt cannula; then, the final touch-ups were performed using a 30G sharp needle.
Our client was very satisfied with her upper lips’ natural, fuller look. She also was excited about the more defined vermilion border of the lips
