Lip Augmentation: The Secrets
Big, beautiful, plump, and luscious lips are in. Make no mistake about it. If you were born with full lips, this article may not be for you. However, for those who wish to have full lips, there is good news. There are safe lip augmentation treatments available that are both temporary and permanent. Yes, I said permanent. Bet you didn’t know that, did you?
When it comes to temporary options for lip augmentation, the most common methods are the use of dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. The injections not only plump the lips, but if injected artistically, can reshape them, too. Beautiful lips are not just about size. They have very discrete units, that when in harmony, impart indescribable beauty!
The active ingredient in dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid, which incorporates safely with the tissues. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the body. The products lasts generally up to 6 or seven months. The injection process is rather quick and results are immediate. There are very little risks associated with lip fillers, but bruising and swelling can be common.
If you are looking for a permanent fix, there are indeed lip implants. These are made of silicone and are placed in the lips under local anesthesia in the office in about 30 minutes. The results are immediate one the swelling subsides. The good news is that they can be safely removed unlike their Gortex and silicone injection cousins that gave permanent lips a bad name for many, many years.
Lip implants come in 3 sizes of thickness: 3 mm, 4 mm, and 5 mm. The enhancement is equivalent to about 1 to 1.5 syringes of Juvederm. If you are interested in beautiful lips for a few months or a lifetime, look no further!
