Certain patients consult a plastic surgeon to improve naturally thin lips, to correct disproportions between the upper and lower lips, asymmetries or to increase their volume. Thanks to continuous advances in the field of aesthetic medicine, reshaping and increasing lips volume is possible and highly customizable with hyaluronic based filler injections.
When to use hyaluronic for the lips ?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in abundance in lip skin. Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is what makes the lips soft and gives them a hydrated and plump appearance. However, over time, the amount of HA decreases, which causes a loss off elasticity and volume in lip skin. This is when wrinkles and folds start to become visible in the face. One of the first facial areas to show aging signs is the lips. Nowadays, a lot of dermal fillers can be injected in the lips and around the mouth. Any patient decided to go for filler injections should always favor hyaluronic based products, for volume increase purposes as well as reshaping and correcting lips defects. First of all, HA is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. Secondly, it attracts larger amounts of water, which contributes to a hydrated and plump effect. HA is naturally and slowly reabsorbed by the body, therefore the results are not permanent. HA is more safe, more predictable and lasts longer than other dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid injections is a simple procedure that offers multiple benefits. It also worth noting that the result is entirely reversible by injecting the treatment area with a substance that naturally induces resoption of the acid.
