A smile is the woman’s most precious jewelry, and why shouldn’t be it?
I need not explain that when you put on a smile, you look more beautiful and charming. It is too obvious that your lips play a remarkable role in this segment.
As we grow in age, there is the thinness and sagging of our overall physic, but this thinning and sagging are dominantly noticeable on our face and lips. This above-mentioned phenomenon is because, as we age, we naturally lose collagen and fat content.
No need to worry if you are unsatisfied with shrunken lips and wish to have plumpy and soft lips. The article below will undoubtedly be your BFF.
Reasons Why There Is A Decline In Volume Of Lips?
As I mentioned earlier, depletion in the production of collagen is the primary reason for thinner lips. As collagen is the building block of the skin, we can notice a decline in the volume of lips in their absence.
When you are dehydrated for a long period of time, you experience shrunken and flaky lips.
Solution To Your Problem
You have to go through Lip augmentation or lip enhancement procedure; to have plumper, even, and glossy lips. Lip augmentation can be performed surgically or through injections.
Lip injections are considered better as they are minimally invasive and have quicker recovery time than lip surgery. Also, changes made by surgery are permanent and cannot be changed later, if you don’t like it. The Lip injection procedure involves injecting one of several types of filler into the lips. Lip filler replaces the lost collagen and fat content, giving you an enhanced lip. Lip fillers are the most favored technique to increase lip size.
What Is Lip Filler?
The substance that is injected into your lips is Hyaluronic acid, which is already present in the human body. Hyaluronic acid is synthesized from bacteria, and it works to plump and enhances your lip size. Hyaluronic acid does this by attaching itself to water molecules inside your lip skin, hence the appearance of thick lips.
Another reason why Hyaluronic acid is mostly preferred is; natural appearance and its ability to dissolve over a 6-7 month time period. Hyaluronic acid filler has 2 variants, namely Restylane and Juvederm.
Restylane is preferred for a more natural result whereas, Juvederm gives a more noticeable result, is more voluminous.
Best Lip Filler?
Lip filler comes in many variants depending on the thickness and how they look on the lips. Basically, all lip filler variants are derived from Hyaluronic acid. These variants are as follows: Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm volbella, Restylane, Restylane Silk.
Juvederm Volbella, and Restylane Silk are used more superficially for puffier lips. Younger patients are treated with Juvederm Volbella for enhanced volume.
Cost Of Treatment
The price per injection might range from $350 – $1500, depending upon the filler and the specialist you visit.
How Much Time It Last?
The answer to this particular question depends on Patient metabolism, the filler used, and the enhanced lip size, but on average it is expected to last 6 months to a year. The lip filler will be gradually absorbed back and the volume shall reduce eventually.
What Is To Avoid?
Avoid intake of VItamin E, Fish oil, Aspirin, Multivitamins, and prominently Motrin at least a week before your appointment. The above-mentioned kinds of stuff have a blood-thinning property which might contribute to bleeding inside your lip skin(bruising) post-treatment.
Avoid intake of hot liquid of any kind right after getting lip injection.
No alcohol intake, please, at least for a day or two after treatment.
What About Swelling & Bruising?
The occurrence of Slight bruising might be evident post-treatment but no need to worry, it is perfectly natural. You will experience this on the top of your lips. Applying ice to the swelling will help you deal with this situation. Don’t start crying, relax, You will do good after 3 to 4 hours of treatment.
