The truth about lip augmentation.

If you’re unhappy with the size and shape of your lips, it has never been easier to improve them with lip injections.

The results can be transformative, as we have seen for the likes of Kylie Jenner; however, lip enhancement treatments can be subtle too.

What is involved with a lip augmentation treatment.

  • The treatment methods used today are highly refined in order to achieve a natural-looking result. A skilled injector will have a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the lip, and will be able to assess your unique physiological traits in order to perform a treatment that is suited to your face and natural lip shape.
  • Achieving symmetry and harmony are important factors that literally shape your lip enhancement, as most people have some degree of asymmetry to their natural lips that can be corrected with a lip filler treatment.
  • Many dermal filler treatments contain a dose of lidocaine to inhibit discomfort, and make use of cannula injection techniques to allow for fewer injections. These aspects of the treatment provide improved comfort and reduced risk of bruising over the course of the treatment, which can be as quick as 15 minutes.
  • The results of a lip enhancement treatment are immediate, with some mild swelling to be anticipated. In the days following the treatment, the filler substance settles more into the tissues of the lips and the final treatment result becomes clear.

Dermal filler treatments are long lasting and have been shown to activate the skin’s natural collagen production; this means that a filler treatment provides anti-aging benefits to the lips, which begin to lose their collagen reserves in our mid-twenties.

Taking all this into consideration, a lip enhancement treatment is an ideal option for patients who have noticed their lips thinning, are bothered by asymmetry, or who would simply like to have a plumper pucker.
