The lips tend to become narrower and lose their fullness as the years go by. They don’t retain as much moisture, and the effects of gravity pull down on the facial skin. An injection treatment is often the best way to plump the lips and give them back their youthful, curved appearance.
We suggest lip augmentation using lip injections as a simple outpatient treatment for the problem of thin, wrinkling lips. This procedure is non-invasive and can be completed in less than an hour.
It is also repeatable at regular intervals. If you are concerned about the shape of your lips and desire a greater amount of lip volume, consider a plumping treatment.
Types of Injectable Fillers
Collagen stimulators were more commonly used in decades past and are still offered at Pristine Med Spa and Laser Center.
Nowadays, injection fillers are most often made with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the surrounding tissues.
What to Expect
You don’t have to prepare for this procedure regarding diet or fluid intake. The acid will do the job using the moisture already present in the adjacent tissues.
In fact, the acid will attract moisture from your lymphatic system, as water you normally take in is drawn to the area where the acid is injected.
At Pristine Med Spa and Laser Center in Ridgecrest, we perform an examination of the lips when we consult with our clients. The amount of filler injection used depends on the shape of the lips and whether one or both lips are to be treated.
Benefits of the Treatment
Not only do the lips become fuller and begin to regain their youthful curve and shape, but they also smooth out. This is good news for those who notice a change in the lip texture when they smile, frown or purse their lips.
The amount of acid injected is easily controlled, so a client can see initial results and decide whether to undergo subsequent treatments using more or less of the filler.
Allergic reactions are very uncommon, and we ask about allergic history and any medications being taken before we perform any filler injection procedure.
