AGELESS BEAUTY THROUGH LIP AUGMENTATION by Lois W. Stern


Unhappy with the shape of your lips? Do your lips seem to lose volume as you age? Like many other parts of the body, lips lose their smooth, full appearance as we get older. Natural substances in our bodies decrease with age, causing our skin to sag, dry, wrinkle, and crease. The lips are no exception, but they can be especially bothersome because they are such a prominent feature on the face.

Well, modern science might have just the solution for you, and it doesn’t require surgery or anesthesia. It’s lip augmentation to the rescue, a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips.

Whereas years past, Collagen and fat injections were the most commonly used dermal fillers, they are used less often today because the newer options are both safer and offer longer  lasting results. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body. There are several hyaluronic acid fillers on the market today including various forms of Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane. These products all are injected the same way and give you similar results. Each product also contains lidocain, a local anesthetic that renders the procedure nearly painless.

Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips. The  physician has control over the amount of lip volume, and for the patient who prefers to see a gradual change, injections can be given during a series of appointments until the desired results are achieved. The effects typically last around six months to a year. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.

Are there any downsides to these hyaluronic acids? Actually very few.  Occasionally, movement of the lips creates lumps, but these can easily be dissolved. Allergic reactions are unlikely because hyaluronic acid fillers are replicated from substances similar to those found in the body. Of course these dermal fillers come at a price and as a cosmetic procedure, will not be covered by your medical insurance.

  1. So true.People tend to forget that these are MEDICAL procedures, even through they are for beauty. That’s why, in both my books, (Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery & Tick Tock, Stop the Clock ~ Getting Pretty on Your Lunch Hour) I stress the need for would-be patients to check on three things for starters: the training, experience and expertise of the doctor.
    Thanks for the reminder.
    Best,
    Lois
