Lip augmentation is a non-surgical procedure wherein dermal fillers are used to enhance your lip contours and appearance. You can opt for lip augmentation if you’re unhappy with the shape, size, symmetry, or general appearance of your lips. With the right fillers injected into the correct locations, you can achieve fuller, plumper, and luscious lips. Lip augmentation can reverse the signs of aging on your lips, such as thinning lips due to the loss of hyaluronic acid or enhance your natural lip contours.
What is Lip Augmentation?
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers for Lip Augmentation
Prejuvenation Aesthetics uses the most effective FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers for lip augmentation. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring gel that makes your skin and lips look smooth, soft, supple, and dewy. It increases your skin’s ability to retain moisture, making it look bright, red, and luscious. However, as you grow older, your body’s ability to retain hyaluronic acid is compromised, leading to thin and dry lips with wrinkles or creases.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, Versa, and RHA, inject hyaluronic acid gel into strategically chosen locations on your lips and around the mouth. The HA molecules make your lips look larger, suppler, and they smoothen out the lines on your upper lips. Some hyaluronic acid fillers also smoothen the perioral lines (aka lipstick lines) around the mouth. Each HA filler is unique, so your cosmetic provider must select the ideal filler for you.
Restylane Kysse is the most effective lip filler to make your lips look more voluminous and smoother. It also softens the perioral lines around the mouth. It’s made using XpresHAn technology to ensure natural results — you maintain a complete range of expressions.
Restylane Refyne is an incredibly gentle lip filler with small hyaluronic acid particles for subtle results. Your cosmetic provider may recommend Refyne if you’re looking for extremely soft and subtle results. This HA filler helps you avoid the “overfilled” look.
Revanesse Versa is an extremely gentle lip filler, made using small and spherical hyaluronic acid particles. It has a smooth consistency that ensures naturalized and subtle results. Furthermore, Versa causes 24% less swelling than other lip fillers.
RHA & RHA 3
RHA & RHA 3 are the only hyaluronic acid fillers capable of minimizing dynamic expression lines, such as lipstick lines around the mouth. They can also enhance lip volume while ensuring subtle, natural results. RHA fillers are produced with minimal chemical intervention, so the hyaluronic acid in RHA is close to the body’s natural HA. This ensures natural lip augmentation results — no overfilling or freezing.
Your Lip Augmentation Experience
After selecting the ideal lip filler for your specific needs, the cosmetic provider numbs your lips with ice or topical anesthesia. The chosen lip filler is drawn into a syringe and injected in strategically chosen areas on your lips.
You experience mild redness, swelling, irritation, and discomfort after the treatment, but you can resume your daily activities immediately. The side effects gradually dissipate within a week.
Hyaluronic acid fillers provide instant results — your lips will look brighter and plumper immediately. The results last for 6 to 12 months, depending on the specific formulation used.
