The lips are extremely important when considering facial beauty and have been highlighted since the beginning of time. The number of women (and men) opting for rejuvenating therapy to obtain luscious looking lips has been on the rise lately. This is because the therapy has become very safe and when performed by a skilled cosmetic physician can give a very natural appearance. It is not just about increasing the size of the lips, but about creating symmetry and proportion between the upper and lower lips. With advancing age, your lips also tend to lose definition which is noticeable at the cupid’s bow in the middle part of the upper lip and the lip border.
A lip injection with a dermal filler such as hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring moisturizer can make up for the lost lip volume and give you shapely and fuller appearing lips. The entire process should take no more than 30-45 minutes. Your lip area will first be cleaned and then a numbing cream will be applied. It may take about 15 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect. The cosmetic physician will then use her experience and expertise to determine which areas of the lip should be injected for the most desirable outcome.If your lips have good volume, injecting the white margins can highlight them. Injection below the muscle can improve the pout. Genetically thin lips can be augmented by deep placement of filler and superficial volume correction. For purely cosmetic enhancement, a superficially placed filler will be sufficient.
Any swelling can be massaged within 24 hours at the doctor’s office. There will be hardly any downtime after the procedure. You should be able to apply lipstick on the evening of the same day as the procedure.
