Noninvasive cosmetic treatments are very popular because they make the process of getting a procedure done more convenient and require far less recovery time. Lip augmentations are a cosmetic treatment on the rise, with nearly 30,000 of them done in a single year. People tend to think of getting this treatment just for fuller lips, but you can have the procedure done for a variety of reasons. Let’s spend some time exploring the types of lip augmentation, and the reasons for getting it.
Residents of the Houston, Texas area who want to get lip augmentation find quality treatment with Dr. Justina Taube at The Elite Wellness Resort. We offer a wide variety of aesthetic services and surgical procedures, with a focus on individualized care to provide a solution tailored to your needs.
Dermal fillers are a popular method for plumping up your lips, often using some type of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance found naturally in your body, specifically as a lubricant and cushion in your joints and other tissues. There are several types of hyaluronic acid fillers used for this procedure, including Restylane®, Juvederm®, Belotero Balance®, HylaForm®, Elevess®, and Prevelle Silk®.
Hyaluronic acid has other medical uses, including treatment for cataracts and osteoarthritis. Taken orally or applied to the skin, it can also help treat urinary tract infections (UTIs), acid reflux, and dry eyes.
Here are some common reasons for people to get lip augmentations:
There are subtle differences on both sides of your body which can be particularly noticeable on your face. If one side of your lips is slightly higher or lower than the other because of injury or just through genetics, this treatment can help correct that.
Lips have a specific shape unique to your face, and sometimes that shape is not well defined, often due to a weak Cupid’s Bow (the two points at the top of your upper lip). This means your lip border may blend into the surrounding skin on your face. If you want to have lips with more definition and a stronger Cupid’s Bow, lip augmentation can help.
Age and bad habits, like smoking, that can prematurely age your skin can cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop around your lips. This procedure minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
If you’ve had an injury that left a scar on your lips, we can use this method to smooth out the scar and reduce its impact on your smile.
If your lips are naturally thin and you want to fill them out, this method is perfect for you. We can customize the treatment to your face, giving you the look you’ve been seeking.
There are plenty of reasons to get the full lips you want, so if you’re ready to see a fuller smile contact Dr. Taube and The Elite Wellness Resort today to get started.
