About Lip Augmentation and Lip Injections
The lips are one of the first facial features to show age. Brought on by sun damage, smoking, and genetics, fine lines can begin to form around the mouth. The lips can also thin and droop, becoming less prominent and taking away from facial balance. When the lips loose their youthful shape, the face will look older, and the appearance may seem grim or sad.
Lip Augmentation is a simple, noninvasive procedure that can be used to improve the look of the lips and restore a more youthful appearance. Using a Dermal Filler, such as Restylane or Juvederm, a Lip Augmentation is designed to smooth over the creases and lines around the mouth. Lip volume can be restored using a Dermal Filler, reviving a pucker that has long been diminished. Additionally, we have been using a patient’s own fat to fill in lines and add lost volume to the face and lips.
Dermal Fillers are comprised of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance naturally found in healthy skin and muscles; thus removing the likelihood of an allergic reaction. Not only do Dermal Fillers improve the visual appeal of the mouth and lips, they also encourage the body’s production of Collagen, which will further refine and improve the appearance. Used alone or in conjunction with other facial treatments, Lip Augmentation can dramatically improve the smile, brighten the face, and take years off the appearance.
The Lip Augmentation Procedure:
Before the procedure, computer imaging can be used to determine the exact look a patient desires. Dr. Chernoff will then have the lips iced, and place the tiny lip injections into predetermined target areas around the mouth. The Lip Augmentation takes only minutes in our offices in Indianapolis or Santa Rosa and requires no downtime. Patients can drive themselves back to work or school the same afternoon. Dr. Chernoff uses a very small needle to inject the Dermal Filler into the desired area around the lips. The Lip Augmentation procedure is relatively pain-free, so no anesthesia is required; most patients compare the sensation to that of a bug bite. While there may be some temporary bruising at the lip injection sites, this can easily be covered with makeup. The resulting gorgeous, plump lips will be immediately noticeable. After about 6-8 months, when the results begin to fade, a quick repeat treatment can extend the benefits.
