Lip Augmentation Treatment – Charleston, SC

Why do my lips become thinner with age?  What can I do to stop this sign of aging? 

 

Lip Augmentation Treatment - Charleston, SCAre you considering lip augmentation?  The reason lips become thinner with age is because as you grow older, your body produces less collagen. Collagen is a protein that supports the body’s soft tissue and is what makes your lips full. Though it was once common to inject collagen into lips to replace what was lost over time, scientists have now discovered other methods that are safer and have longer lasting effects. But, no matter what is in the injections, the process is known as lip augmentation.

 

Lip Augmentation Treatment – Charleston, SC

 

Lip Augmentation is a procedure that gives you fuller, plumper lips. Though fat injections and implants are sometimes used, an injectable dermal filler is now the most common and effective method of lip augmentation. Typically, fillers today contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. It may sound scary, but hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body and is responsible for increasing volume in your lips. Once it is in injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes your lips.

 

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC

 

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is one such hyaluronic acid-based filler for plumping lips. This filler effectively improves the shape, structure, and volume of your lips for up to 1 year. There are several benefits to having lip augmentation. First, your doctor has total control over how much your lip volume is increased. Additionally, with JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, there is less bruising and swelling compared to other dermal fillers. The length of time your lips remain full and plumped is also a plus, as other fillers may not last as long. Any lumps or bumps formed by your moving lips can be dissolved easily, too. Lastly, because hyaluronic acid fillers are similar to those that naturally exist in your body, it is unlikely you will have an allergic reaction.
