Fuller lips for the holidays and new year
Have you been considering treatment with dermal fillers for fuller, more defined lips? If you want to make a subtle and flattering enhancement of your appearance, you can achieve your goal through the application of FDA approved injectable fillers. There are some makeup tricks that many women employ to give the impression of fuller lips, but the results can be inconsistent and short-term. Typically, the results from makeup can be too subtle, or can be easily detected in a close encounter. Charlotte dermatologists can offer you a long-term solution for enhancement or augmentation of your lips.
Hyaluronic acid is an injectable filler that is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), specifically for lip augmentation in patients who are 21 years of age and older. Lip augmentation is a procedure that is most successful when performed under the supervision of a board-certified dermatologist. Hyaluronic acid is injected into the lips to enlarge them or to subtly change their appearance. It is imperative that patients be realistic with their expectations. For example, patients who are born with very thin lips should not attempt to achieve a dramatic change in the fullness of their lips. Your dermatologist will recommend results that are going to be proportionate to your other facial features. The results should last six months or longer. Lip augmentation with dermal fillers is not recommended for patients who have experienced severe sun damage or deep wrinkles.
Help for aging skin
Hyaluronic acid was originally intended to treat moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles. However, it has also been used to successfully counteract or reduce the signs of aging around the mouth, such as wrinkling and hollowing around the corners of the mouth. Smoking and exposure to the sun can also accelerate the aging of your skin. Common issues are drooping, a decrease in volume, and/or exaggerated lip lines. Hyaluronic acid fillers can stimulate collagen production.
