Dermal fillers for Fuller lips

Open any fashion magazine or makeup website, you will discover that full or plump lips is a very desired look. There are many makeup tricks that can be employed to give the impression of fuller lips, but the results that they provide are short-term. In addition, the results can be too subtle or can be easily detected in a close encounter. The best dermatologists in Charlotte can offer you a long term solution for enhancement or augmentation of your lips.
Dermal fillers for your lips
Hyaluronic acid is an injectable filler that is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lip augmentation in patients 21 years of age and older. Lip augmentation is a procedure, best performed under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist, in which hyaluronic acid is injected into the lips to enlarge them or to subtly change their shape and appearance. Dermatologists and clinicians will work very closely with patients to ensure a subtle and natural look. It is very important that patients be realistic with their expectations. In other words, patients who are born with very thin lips should not attempt to get a dramatic change in the fullness of their lips from lip augmentation. The best dermatologists will recommend results that are going to be proportionate to other facial features. Whatever you and your dermatologist decide, on average, the results should last six months or longer.
Improving age-related changes
Although it was originally intended to treat moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles, hyaluronic acid has been used successfully to counteract or to reduce the signs of aging around the mouth. One of the most common signs of aging is wrinkling and hollowing around the corners of the mouth. Aging is not the only culprit; constant smoking and exposure to the sun can accelerate the aging process, and result in drooping, a decrease in volume, and/or exaggerated lip lines. On some level the aging process can be slowed down because hyaluronic acid fillers can stimulate collagen production. Lip augmentation is not recommended for patients who have experienced severe sun damage or deep wrinkles.
