Lip augmentation, also known as lip plumping, can be achieved using injectable filler.The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip.
Some patients may notice a loss of fullness with age or the appearance of fine lines as time goes on. Various lifestyle patterns, such as alcohol use and smoking, can also contribute to decreased lip fullness and wrinkling. Many patients also choose lip plumping because it will correct some visual asymmetries in the lips. For most patients, lip augmentation gives very rewarding and natural results and provides a more pleasing, noticeable smile.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT LIP FILLER
When choosing the right dermal filler for patients, our doctors carry only the top, gold-standard injectable fillers available on the market today. In our Toronto Facial Cosmetic Clinic, patients can choose from the following injectable filler, specifically formulated for lip augmentation: Restylane, Teosyal Kiss, Juvederm, and Volbella. Each lip filler has its own unique qualities that could make it the best choice for you. All of them are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a safe and naturally-occurring substance already found in your body. A Hyaluronic Acid injectable Filler carries minimal risk and has a fantastic safety record. As long as patients are choosing an expert injector from a top facial plastic surgery clinic, the results should be very pleasing and natural-looking. Lip filler can last anywhere from 6 months to 18 months. Typically, dermal filler in the lips will be metabolized faster than in other areas of the face. This is because our lips are constantly in motion, eating, drinking, and speaking, which means the product will metabolize the fastest.
Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane®products.
