Achieving fuller lips is a goal for people of all ages. Maybe you’d like to have larger, smoother lips, or maybe you’d like to combat signs of aging in your lips, which can include thinning, loss of shape and wrinkles around the mouth. Lux: A Medical Spa in Bluffton, SC offers a treatment aimed at revealing beautiful, natural lips in people of all ages through Restylane lip augmentation.
What Is Restylane Lip Augmentation?
Restylane, which produces a family of top-quality dermal fillers, has designed a filler specifically intended for your lips. Its base is injectable hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the human body, which has been engineered to last longer than regular hyaluronic acid. This clear gel has smaller, smoother particles than other augmentation gels and allows you to achieve a totally natural appearance while leaving your lips as soft as silk.
If you’re considering augmenting your natural lips, the first step is to sit down with your doctor and discuss your desired results. Your doctor will evaluate your current lips and explain how Restylane can fill, shape, or smooth problem areas. You’ll be able to ask questions and talk through a treatment plan that’s right for you.
During your treatment, your doctor injects Restylane with an ultrafine needle into your lips, and, if desired, into the fine lines around your mouth to smooth wrinkles. Your doctor follows the plan you created together, targeting the areas you wish to see improved.
This can involve filling your lips to achieve a plumper appearance, targeting the edges of your lips to restore your natural shape, or injecting Restylane into small lines around your lips which can appear as you age.
Once your treatment is complete, your doctor will recommend that you avoid touching the injection sites for 6 hours to avoid irritating the area. You should also plan to stay out of excessive heat or direct sunlight for 24 hours to promote optimal healing. Beyond this, you’re able to go about your daily routine as normal.
Restylane treatments can keep your lips looking their best for up to six months. Depending on the treatment plan you created with your doctor, you will likely return for continuing treatments every few months to maintain your ideal results. Most patients report a dramatic improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injections, and this treatment has an 89% satisfaction rate with augmentation results.
