Hyaluronic acid lip injection is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments in the world. This filling product has the advantage of being versatile and can be used for various needs with safety. Far from prejudices, the lip injection will not be overrated, quite the contrary: natural and refined effect at the rendezvous!
Why perform a lip injection?
Lips are often synonymous with fantasy! A pinch of lips or a beautiful heart-shaped mouth are as attractive as an intense look. For a long time, women have been afraid to increase the volume of their lips and take the plunge because it is a visible and sensual part that requires a truly natural result. Yet today, lip injection with hyaluronic acid has become a highly appreciated act of aesthetic medicine. Many women want a slightly plumped mouth for a glamorous effect.
Only hyaluronic acid is injected for a volumizing or moisturizing effect or both! The goal is to beautify and reshape the lips without changing the person's appearance. The lip injection intervenes to moisturize the lips, to sublimate the lip line or to increase the volume for a better symmetry. Hyaluronic acid is effective in redesigning the lip contour but also fills in facial hollows such as dark circles, cheekbones or cheeks.
Hyaluronic acid is a plumping molecule naturally present in our body. It helps to maintain a good level of hydration of the epidermis and thus preserve baby's skin! With age, the skin tends to lose its support and fine lines appear. Also, every decade, we lose 6% of our hyaluronic acid reserve. Injected hyaluronic acid is not perceived as a foreign body by the body. Unlike hyaluronic acid creams or capsules, injections penetrate the barrier of the dermis, making them much more effective.
Hyaluronic acid injections are given in the office and sometimes without anaesthesia, as the anaesthetic is already included in the product. Otherwise, the cosmetic doctor uses a conventional local anaesthetic or applies a lidocaine cream for this purpose. An injection with hyaluronic acid is not an insignificant gesture and requires the presence of the aesthetic doctor to be carried out in the best conditions.
At the end of the operation, the aesthetic doctor massages the treated areas to even out the distribution of the product. The assimilation by the body is progressive and the final result is optimal 10 days after the operation. Hyaluronic acid is a resorbable molecule, so it does not accumulate in the body and disintegrates over time. This is an advantage in case of a small risk of an allergic reaction of the patient, which when it happens only occurs during a transitional period.
Before you start, be sure to ask your aesthetic doctor for advice on your expectations and the result you want to achieve for a natural effect that will enhance your original beauty!
