When patients have thin or asymmetrical lips, they may feel self-conscious about how they look. Fortunately, with the use of cosmetic injectables, California area patients can achieve a more desirable appearance to the upper, lower, or both lips. At the Skin and Beauty Center, we are here to educate patients on the various ways to improve their facial appearance, especially when they are thinking about lip augmentation services.
How can the lips be augmented?
While lip implants are available with plastic surgeons, they are often not necessary as there are less invasive ways to achieve the same results. At the Skin and Beauty Center, we encourage patients to ask about lip augmentation with the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected into specific areas of the face to smooth them out. They can also add volume where it is needed, including the lips. Our team utilizes popular fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane to achieve the desired results while ensuring a natural appearance. The dermatologist will strategically inject the fillers into the areas of the lips needing augmentation to improve volume and shape.
What can I expect from my lip augmentation procedure?
Patients can expect their augmentation treatment to take approximately fifteen minutes. Patients relax in the treatment chair while the doctor administers the injectable where it is needed. It is not unusual to experience mild swelling or bruising in the treated area for a few days after the treatment, and this will resolve on its own. Patients can then expect the results to last anywhere from six to 12 months before new injections are required. To maintain the results, patients can expect to see their dermatologist on a regular basis for touch-up injections with the team at the Skin and Beauty Center.
