We’re all familiar with how wrinkles and gray hair can make us look older. But have you ever thought about your lips? Thinning, flattening lips can betray your age just as much as crow’s feet or laugh lines. Thankfully, there are dermal fillers for lip augmentations available for you in Lafayette and Baton Rouge.
Why Choose Lip Augmentation?
As we age, our lips can become less full and voluptuous. Collagen helps give lips their shape, as this Good Housekeeping article reports. Unfortunately, collagen is one of the substances we produce less of as we get older—which explains the thinning. Sun exposure, hereditary factors, and lifestyle choices can also age and thin your lips.
Are you interested in a plumper pout, but worried about being a punchline? Today’s lip augmentations are a much more natural and lovely way to address thinning lips. Gone are the days of looking like you have innertubes plastered on your face. With dermal fillers, you can get the luscious, natural-looking lips of your dreams.
Which Dermal Filler Is Right For You?
When it comes to fillers for lip augmentation, you have two great choices: Juvederm® and Restylane®. Both use hyaluronic acid. The National Center for Biotechnology Information identifies hyaluronic acid as a key molecule in skin aging. It credits its ability to retain water and keep skin moisturized. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin and keeps it hydrated and plump. Injecting with one of these fillers can provide immediate results to get fuller, younger-looking lips.
The process is also similar for both fillers. Neither involves any surgeries or incisions, and expected side effects are minimal. You can expect just some slight bruising, swelling, and reddening at the injection sites. But all of that should fade within the first week. And the process is fairly straightforward. Trained professionals inject the fillers just below the skin. This process gives you immediate, natural-looking results. (Some numbing agents are an option to make it even more!) During your consultation, your medical team can help you decide which one is best for you. They can also let you know what to expect, as well as how to maintain your results.
