Hyaluronic acids are naturally occurring molecules in the human body. Skin, cartilage, and nervous tissues are parts of the body that naturally contain Hyaluronic Acid.
The treatment consists of a series of injections of fillers to both the upper and lower lips, typically with a filler type called hyaluronic acids. Most commonly these filler injections are performed with a needle and several injections per lip.
Many of the Hyaluronic fillers, such as Juvederm, are pre-mixed with a numbing agent to reduce any discomfort that may occur during the injection.
Our practice pre-numbs the area with a local anesthetic, and additionally applies a high-intensity vibration device to distract from and reduce the feeling of pain.
The amount of swelling varies depending on both the individual and how the treatment is performed. To minimize swelling, an experienced injector may do things such as minimize the number of injection spots, inject at a medium depth, and administer the injections very slowly.
The amount of downtime is typically minimal. Most clients are able to resume normal social activity shortly after their treatment.
The results you get from filler lip enhancements and lip augmentation ar e 90% based on the provider, and only 10% based on the filler itself. It is important that you select an experienced injector for your lip filler treatment. An experienced provider will take into consideration not only your lips but the entire area around your lips. More than often, an over-plumped result is because the area around the face was not treated or related to the experience of the provider.
