The full, luscious pout you enjoyed when you were younger may have become thin, stretched, and unbalanced. Tiny wrinkles on the lip skin may have become more prominent. Lip enhancement is performed as a means to reverse these signs of aging, and most of the treatments are simpler than you might think. Here at Ideal Weight and Skin, we are proud to offer you lip enhancement and encourage you to learn more about it.
Common Problems With Lip Shape
The appealing pout you had when you were a teen was possible thanks to the amount of moisture in the lip tissue and the strength of the muscles around the mouth. As you aged, the amount of moisture retention decreased, and the natural acids that drew in and held this moisture became far less abundant. This resulted in thinning lips and wrinkled lip skin. Lip augmentation can improve this.
Dermal Filler Injection
This is the most common form of lip augmentation. If plumping of the lips is desired, it can be achieved via the injecting of a gel containing hyaluronic acid. The acid binds with water molecules to produce the plumping effect. This type of treatment is popular because the dermatologist can customize the treatment by selecting a specific gel malleability and thickness as well as choosing a specific dosage. In other words, the amount of plumping is completely controlled, so there’s no risk of unwanted visual results.
