The aging process is inevitable, we all go through it and our facial aesthetic changes in the process. One of the areas that gives away age is the lips. Lip lines (those fine lines surrounding the lips, also known as smokers’ lines), along with thinning lips, is common as we age and our skin loses essential elasticity. Just like all wrinkles and fine lines, these can be difficult to hide behind makeup. In this blog we’ll discuss the benefits of lip injections.
Look younger instantly
Results are stunning and instant. With injectable fillers, the skin surrounding your mouth is instantly plumped up, erasing fine lines and giving instant definition to the lip edges. There are creams and serums that promise rejuvenating results, but these work only on the surface of the skin, and so will not have the same drastic results that an injection will contain, and results from creams and serums take weeks to months to show.
Quick, easy, and painless
Lip injections take just minutes to administer. The process is fairly easy and straightforward. And because most injection formulations include lidocaine, an anesthetic, within the injection itself, the procedure is virtually painless. A topical anesthetic can be given if you wish.
In the hands of a good provider, injections around the lips result in natural-looking youthful lip area. Fine lines are erased, and the lip edges are more defined. What’s more, injections directly within the lips can replenish lost volume there. A small amount gives subtle yet noticeable results.
Lip injections contain natural hyaluronic acid, which our bodies naturally produce. However, as we age, our bodies produce less and less of this essential component. The hyaluronic acid in fillers is obtained by biofermentation of bacteria, and is not synthetic, so it’s accepted easily by the body. Hyaluronic acid (HA) injections work by filling in the spaces in which they’re placed, but also work by drawing in moisture to the areas as well. HA can hold 1000 times its weight in water.
Lasting results with consecutive treatments
For longer lasting and more noticeable results, get several consecutive treatments. Your healthcare provider can help you determine what the best course of action is for your particular case.
