What is lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation is an aesthetic procedure that can give you plumper, fuller lips. If your lips are smaller or thinner than desired, due to natural thinning or the aging process, this is the perfect treatment option for you. At Skin Medical Aesthetics, we use dermal filler injections to increase lip size, reduce fine lines, and to make the lips more proportioned. With a custom treatment plan in place, your lips will have the shape, structure, and volume you’ve always wanted, without surgery or downtime!
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are non-surgical, injectable treatments that add volume and smooth out wrinkles on the face and hands. Treatments are quick and involve local anesthesia for optimal comfort. At Skin Medical Aesthetics in Windham, Maine, we provide the following fillers:
These dermal filler brands are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance found in the body. Hyaluronic acid contributes to skin hydration and volume. Dermal filler lip augmentation allows you to replenish your body’s HA levels temporarily. As a result, you will have luscious, full lips.
Why use dermal fillers for lip augmentation?
We use dermal fillers for lip augmentation because treatments are non-surgical and come with little to no downtime. Fillers also allow for controlled filler placement, so you’ll end up with your desired lip size and shape. There is also less bruising compared to other treatment options. Although the results are not permanent, they are long-lasting. Dermal fillers often stay in the body for up to a year. Lastly, allergic reactions are uncommon with fillers.
What should I expect during treatments?
Our process starts with a consultation. During your initial appointment, we will have you point out specific areas where you’d like to add more fullness. We will then develop a custom treatment plan, and you’ll leave our Windham location knowing what your results will be. The actual treatments are performed in our practice. We will numb your lips before the injections so that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. Injections usually take 15-30 minutes to complete.
What can I expect from the results?
Lip fillers provide temporary results, and they often depend on how quickly your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. Most of our clients see results that last 4 months to a little over a year. The exact look and shape of your lips will be tailored to your personal preference. We will make sure you get the pout that makes you feel beautiful and confident.
Fillers require little to no downtime. Your lips may experience temporary bruising, so you may want to take the rest of the day off to let the bruising subside.
