Everything You Need to Know About Lip Augmentation

A woman with natural beauty and lips
How well do your lips frame your smile? Is your upper lip thinner than you would like? Do your lips seem to have lost their volume over the years? Lip augmentation, creating fuller, more youthful-looking lips with fillers, has become one of today’s most popular cosmetic procedures.

Why Lips Matter

Your smile tells a lot about you and can convey a message before you even start to speak. An attractive smile draws people in and exudes confidence, kindness, and optimism. On the other hand, a smile you are not proud of can send a message of insecurity, timidity, and shame. How do you feel about yours? In what ways would you like to transform the way in which your lips frame your pearly whites? Enhancing or restoring your natural anatomy by adding fullness, symmetry, or shapeliness will accentuate your mouth, teeth, and gums.

Why Aesthetic Fillers Are Popular

Fillers made of hyaluronic acid have become the working woman’s cosmetic enhancement of choice. Affordable, easy, and quick, the gel-like injectable material that we use for lip augmentation is a temporary improvement that replaces the natural human tissue and remains in the skin for up to 18 months. Our patients love the youthful “pout” that the fillers give their lips, a simple, more permanent fix than having to daily use lipstick to draw in lip definition.

Why Hyaluronic Acid Is Important and Safe

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally present substance in the human body. As time passes, its production decreases, leading to dehydration, wrinkles, and loss of volume in our skin. This is most evident in the way a baby’s plump skin has soft elasticity compared to the way in which an adult’s skin becomes saggy and deflated. We use hyaluronic acid fillers to add volume to your lips in the most natural way possible.

What to Expect

The procedure itself is quite quick, maybe 30 minutes. We begin by discussing your medical history, allergies, medications, etc. We will instruct you ahead of time to make sure you are hydrated when you come in for the procedure. You’ll want to avoid the beach, saunas, and anything that might dehydrate your body. Hyaluronic acid is completely safe as it is a natural substance, so side effects are minimal and rare.

Have additional questions?

Lip augmentation is one of the least invasive cosmetic procedures available. Our fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, and they add volume, smooth lines, and plumpness to your lips.
