What are Lip Injections?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the human body which aids our skin in hydration, volume and elasticity. However, as we age our bodies production of hyaluronic acid experiences a natural depletion, resulting in thin lips and vertical wrinkles, known as lip lines. Lip fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are injectable dermal fillers which contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. For this reason, lip fillers are known as a safe and effective method to enhancing the appearance and shape of the lips.
Once injected, the fillers provide support to the tissues of the lips, resulting in smoother, more volumized lips for up to 9 months, depending on the treatment received. In addition, lip fillers stimulate our bodies production of collagen, allowing for our lips to remain slightly full even after the hyaluronic acid has been broken down by the body. However, if you wish to reverse the effects of the fillers right away, this may also be accomplished.
