LIP AUGMENTATION OVERVIEW
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. These days, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected into your lips and around your mouth.
Fillers made from natural or synthetic biocompatible material act as a fat substitute to plump up the lip. One treatment is usually sufficient to produce the desired result. The results, however, may be temporary and require repeat injections.
These fillers are usually based in hyaluronic acid. Such fillers include Restylane, Belotero, Juvederm, HylaForm and Elevesse.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH LIP AUGMENTATION
A consultation with a qualified practitioner who will assess your face, in particular, your lips and the way you smile. You may or may not be a suitable candidate for a lip filler.
The actual treatment takes under 30 minutes. The filler is carefully injected into the lips and the practitioner will be looking to achieve a natural, symmetrical look.
BENEFITS OF LIP AUGMENTATION
If carried out expertly the result can be very aesthetically pleasing, giving you a fuller lip and a more attractive pout!
This is not suitable for everyone, and can look very unnatural and "done".
