Lip augmentation, when properly performed, is discreet and maintains the natural appearance of your lips. With injections, your lips can appear younger and fuller.
What is lip augmentation?
Thin lips, which are lacking in volume, are often a complex for both women and men. As such, lip augmentation is one of the most common treatments in cosmetic medicine. These types of complexes directly affect patients’ self-esteem and confidence. Fortunately, hyaluronic acid injections allow thousands of people to improve the appearance of their lips and gain confidence in their appearance.
While lip augmentation is a popular procedure, it requires a great deal of precision. This is why it is important to fully trust the doctor or practitioner performing the procedure. Dr. Morin’s qualified team focuses on offering personalized services, respecting client desires while advising them to preserve the natural beauty of their face.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in the human body. It plays an essential role in tissue hydration and in the maintenance of skin volume. As you age, the production of hyaluronic acid, like that of collagen and elastin, decreases. This partly explains the deterioration in the quality of our skin, its elasticity and its hydration. Hyaluronic acid injections make up for these shortcomings. The injections will give your face a youthful and fresh appearance. Used in lip augmentation treatments, hyaluronic acid injections will give lips the luscious effect so valued by current female and male beauty standards. Hyaluronic acid injections rejuvenate lips, thus giving you an instantly radiant appearance.
Often, lip augmentation patients want fuller lips, a more defined outline and a fleshier appearance. This will make the face look younger, without having to resort to surgical procedures. Hyaluronic acid injections can then be combined with botulinum toxin injections to the face to optimize the overall rejuvenation effect.
Do the effects of lip augmentation last?
Since the body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, it will gradually be absorbed by the body. Its effects are therefore not permanent, but they may last for almost a year, although touch-ups may be required after a few months. The advantage of using an absorbable substance is the reduced risk of forming granulomas in the long term. Normally, the desired effects persist longer when the injections are given at regular intervals.
How much does lip augmentation cost?
As in all medical aesthetic treatments, it is difficult to determine a precise price for a given treatment. Typically, lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid costs between $500 and $850. This price is, however, for information purposes only and may vary if the patient has a particular condition or if the procedure is combined with other treatments.
How do I maintain the beauty of my lips?
Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid injections is without a doubt an effective and safe way to get full lips. However, with or without lip augmentation, the appearance of the lips can be greatly improved by taking a few simple steps every day. In fact, there are certain lifestyle habits to adopt and others to avoid so that lips maintain their volume and slow down their natural aging. Contrary to popular belief, it is not only inheritance that determines the size and shape of the lips.
- Hydration is the most important factor when it comes to lips. Drinking lots of water and using a moisturizing balm is necessary to preserve their youth.
- Smoking is not recommended. In addition to being particularly harmful to overall and cutaneous health, it dries out the lips, discolours them and prematurely causes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth.
- Overexposure to the sun is harmful for the skin, especially for sensitive areas such as the lips. Limiting exposure and applying a balm with SPF are good habits to maintain the beauty of the lips.
- The bad habit of moistening the lips with the tongue is also harmful to the lips since it deposits acids, which attack and irritate the mucous membranes.
