Lip Augmentation and Enhancement For Natural Looking Lips
Lip enhancement is a popular procedure yet produces hesitation or even fear in many patients. Lip enhancement requires an artistic eye, a caring touch, and the right product(s) to produce pleasing an natural-looking results. The lips, like any other part of our face, has beautiful proportions. Overfilling, or placing filler without respect for important anatomic guides should absolutely be avoided. Beautifully-enhanced lip filler procedures yield spectacular and appropriate results that never look overdone.
Many fillers can be used to enhance the lips. Individual patient needs determine if fine lip lines, lip projection, lip fullness, or lip hydration is the intended result. Injectable hyaluronic acid fillers commonly used for lip augmentation and enhancement include Juvederm, Restylane, Volbella, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, Belotero, and Vollure.
The delicate tissue around the lips is at higher risk of swelling or bruising after lip enhancement than other filler procedures. It is important that patients avoid medications and supplements that thin the blood prior to the procedure. Special techniques utilized at Art of Skin MD including use of a blunt-tipped cannula for the filler procedure may reduce bruising or swelling after lip enhancement. Treatment should be comfortable. Lip augmentation and lip enhancement are performed with the aid of several pain-reducing strategies including topical numbing, ice, dental numbing blocks, and numbing contained within the fillers themselves.
