This treatment can also remove wrinkles above the upper lip or raise loose corners of the mouth. The trend of modern beauty dictates full and sensual lips. But not each of us was blessed with those. Not to mention that approximately after the age of 25, lips start narrowing due to gradual loss of their natural fat content.
The application of hyaluronic acid is a very simple and fast way to increase the volume of lips or reshape their contours. This treatment can also remove wrinkles above the upper lip or raise loose corners of the mouth. This technique can also correct distortions of the lips caused by accidents or congenital defects.
Hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally occurring in the body, is applied to the lips as a gel. The effect is apparent immediately and usually lasts 6 to 12 months.
Lip enhancement is provided as an outpatient service and takes approximately 30 minutes. The first step is local anaesthesia (similar to dental treatments). After numbing, the physician injects the hyaluronic acid gel directly into the lips with a very thin needle. The lips swell slightly during treatment. Clients can go home immediately afterwards.
The downtime from nonsurgical options is minimal. You may experience some bruising or swelling which will subside within 2 days. It is recommended that patients refrain from wearing make-up until the next day and should be restricted to a liquid-only diet for one or two days
