Hyaluronic Acid on the Lips
Lip filler is a medical-aesthetic procedure in which, using hyaluronic acid, it’s possible to improve the appearance of the lips.
Other substances such as autologous fat, for example, can be applied to the lips. However, the use of hyaluronic acid makes lip fillers a safer procedure, with less risk of adverse effects, as well as allowing for a more natural result.
This type of lip filler should be performed in a safe place by doctors. This is the case at the Dermage Clinic, which performs this increasingly popular application. Since it’s a great solution for lip enhancement.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Mostly present in the skin, hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by our body. It’s responsible for retaining water in order to keep the body’s tissues well hydrated, lubricated and, in this way, maintain their proper functioning. Basically, it contributes to a youthful looking skin.
As the years pass, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases. Therefore, a synthetic version of it’s administered to the face. This application to the lip restores the volume that is lost with age, while also accentuating it’s contour.
Besides being used in aesthetic medicine, hyaluronic acid is also used as a treatment for joint diseases, dry eye syndrome and other clinical cases.
How is Lip Filling Performed?
The injectable lip filling techniques can be performed in approximately 30 minutes.
After marking the areas to be injected, using very thin needles, the hyaluronic acid is applied in the lips. And we repeat the procedure.
Usually, it’s not a painful application, since it’s performed under anesthesia, applied locally to ensure maximum comfort.
There is also another application format, through cannulas. However, the most effective way is through intradermal injection in gel form.
Does Hyaluronic Acid Really Work?
All lip fillers with the acid are temporary. They may vary due to a number of factors related to the product, the technique and the patient, as well as the type of hyaluronic acid and the amount to be used.
Despite this variability, it’s estimated to last between 6 to 12 months. After these periods a new application can be performed.
