If you have even a passing interest in cosmetics, you have read about or heard about lip augmentation. This is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that promises to give you fuller, healthier, plumper lips.
The popularity of this treatment can be seen when you look at some of the more famous influencers throughout social media. Many of them rant and rave about how happy they are with their lips after having an augmentation treatment performed. There are a few popular dermal fillers on the market today for augmentation treatments.
What to Expect from Dermal Fillers
There are a number of types of dermal fillers that are available. In times past, collagen was the most popular dermal filler used in lip augmentation. With time, collagen fell out of favor and was replaced with treatments that use hyaluronic acid.
The reason why hyaluronic acid is used in fillers is because it is safe, effective, and produces natural-looking results. When properly injected, the results from hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers can last for many months.
What makes hyaluronic acid fillers so nice is that they not only add volume to your lips, but they can be used to improve the structure and the shape of your lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are not designed to be permanent. When they run their course, the hyaluronic acid is absorbed into your body and your lips go back to their pre-augmented size or shape.
Since hyaluronic acid is something that is naturally found in your body, there is little to no chance of you having a negative reaction to the substance. The results are natural, safe, and long-lasting.
Trust Your Lips to Professionals
In some areas, dermal fillers can be administered without the need for a prescription. This means that it is possible for those without the proper qualifications to administer the filler. You should only trust your lips to certified medical professionals, such as those you will find at Hubbell Dermatology and Aesthetics.
Even a minor distortion of your lips can throw your whole appearance off. This is why we strongly recommend only trusting professionals with a medical background and an eye for aesthetics to perform your lip augmentation.
What Should You Expect from the Results?
Your results should look natural. The goal is usually not to dramatically change your appearance, but to subtly enhance your features. The goal is to have lips that are soft to the touch. When administered correctly, our fillers will allow you to keep the same sensation in your lips that you had before the treatment.
