Lip Augmentation Through Dermal Filler Injections: Facts You Should Know

Lip augmentation is a simple procedure that can give you fuller, smoother lips, but there are many myths regarding the process. Following are a few things you should know if you are considering lip augmentation through dermal filler injections.

The Basics About Dermal Filler Injections

Hyaluronic acid fillers offer temporary lip enhancement. Common products used for this procedure include the Juvederm and Restylane brands. Depending on the product, these dermal filler injections can boost lip volume, enhance lip shape, and smooth vertical lines.

The results can last from four months to one year, with an average of about six months. To maintain the results, treatments must be repeated periodically.

Patients should look for a board-certified dermatologist to complete the treatments, and they should beware of obtaining such treatments from other sources. Highly trained professionals can enhance your natural smile while making your lips and the area around your lips smoother. It is a misconception that lip augmentation looks unnatural.  In experienced hands, lips will appear natural and appropriate for your facial structure.

It is also possible to treat the vertical lip lines and add structure to the lips for the mature patient who does not want a change in the size or shape of the lip.
