Lip enhancement have become popular procedures in the past few years. Aging lips can give off many signals indicating a person’s health or even age. The current trend is driven by the rise of selfies on social media, along with celebrities who have undergone lip enhancement.

 

These enhancement procedures can help to improve a person’s self-confidence, attractiveness and reduce the signs of aging. These procedures are popular to correct wrinkles and other issues caused by aging and lifestyle choices. Over time, lips may develop lines and lack of definition, along with loss of volume. This is caused by a natural decrease in the amount of collagen and elastin due to aging. Lips also age from overexposure to sunlight, due to genetics, and excessive smoking.

What is Lip Enhancement?

Lip Enhancement is a cosmetic non-surgical procedure to improve the appearance of lips. It typically involves reduction of the fine lines and wrinkles around the lips with the use of biological products.

Lip procedures are also used to help improve facial symmetry and proportions. Symmetry and attractiveness may be hardwired into human genes. This means that the face—the eyes, nose, and mouth—are proportional, with no specific feature standing out.

In general, lips should be symmetrical; the top lip should not be too full, and should never be larger than the lower lip. The top lip should be about one to two thirds the volume of the lower lip. In addition, both sides should be exactly the same shape and size.

Who is a Good Candidate for Lip Enhancement?

A patient considering any cosmetic procedure should be in good health. In addition, they should have no previous medical conditions and should have a realistic expectation about post-procedure outcomes. Good candidates may feel self-conscious about their lips, or their lips are too thin or need to be reshaped to achieve proper symmetry and balance.

Pros Of Lip Enhancement

  • Increased self-confidence
  • Balance of the face; eyes, cheeks, nose and lips are harmonious
  • Fuller lips creates a healthier, more youthful appearance and may increase sexuality
  • Implants and surgical enhancements are typically more permanent
  • Recovery time for lip injections may be one day
  • Hyaluronic acid fillers can be “erased” with an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which dissolves the filler in about five minutes. Lips will go back to their original shape and size, with no trace of the injections.

Hyaluronic Acid Lip Injections

Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most popular substances used for lip injections. Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate (polysaccharide), which naturally occurs in the human body. It’s mainly found in eye fluids, joints, the skin and connective tissues, and it’s one of the most important substances for the support of elastin and collagen in the skin.

How Does Hyaluronic Acid Work?

The effectiveness of this ingredient comes from its ability to retain moisture. Hyaluronic acid increases hydration of cells in the body, rejuvenating and hydrating dry, wrinkled and sagging skin. It’s an ideal choice for creating fuller, natural looking lips. The end result is natural, supple lips.

Most Popular Lip Enhancement

Juvederm: is used to improve skin elasticity, and smoother, suppler skin. It comes in three different types: Juvederm Ultra (considered a “regular” filler and most recommended for lip enhancement), Juvederm Ultra Plus (for deeper facial wrinkles) and Juvederm Voluma (typically used on cheeks and chin). The gel is injected into the mid- to deep skin levels, and works by adding volume and lifting wrinkles. A treatment can last from six to nine months. 

Restylane: is most often used around the mouth and nose. This treatment can last six months or more, and be administered alone or with other treatments. Recovery time is typically two to three days, and normal activities can be resumed immediately. Patients may be advised to avoid the sun. The most common side effects of Restylane include headache, nausea, flu-like symptoms, redness and pain at injection sites.

Belotero: is one of the best treatments for fine lines, in addition to increasing lip plumpness. Belotero injections typically take from fifteen to thirty minutes. Recovery time is about one week. This treatment lasts from six to twelve months.
