Lip Augmentation in Gilbert AZ
Lip Filler Treatment Near Tempe, Chandler AZ
Lip augmentation procedures add volume and fullness to your lips, giving you a more youthful-looking smile, in the most natural way possible. If you have small, thin, asymmetric, or disproportionate lips, a lip enhancement may be an excellent solution for you.
What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation, one of today’s most popular cosmetic treatments, transforms your smile in all the best ways, using aesthetic fillers. The procedure enhances your natural anatomy by adding fullness, symmetry, or shapeliness to your lips. Facial and Oral Surgeon Dr. Haralson uses lip fillers to accentuate your mouth, teeth, and gums.
Lip injections of gel-like hyaluronic acid are cost-effective, fast, and easy. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that our body produces, giving volume to our lips. But over time, production slows down which leads to wrinkles and shrunken lips. We see this happen most clearly in the way a baby starts life with plump skin that is soft with elasticity, but as he grows into an adult, his skin becomes saggy and deflated. During a lip augmentation, Dr. Haralson simply replaces the natural tissue that has been lost, by injecting new hyaluronic acid into the lips. This provides a youthful “pout” that gives your lips volume and definition.
How Long Does a Lip Enhancement Take?
Lip injections do not take long. Be sure to come to your appointment well hydrated and expect to stay about 30 minutes. During that time, we’ll discuss your medical history and any medications you’re taking and allergies you have before administering the lip injections. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, it is completely safe, and we rarely see any side effects.
Recovery: When Do You See Results of Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentations are in-office procedures that are minimally invasive. Quicky and easy, they require little downtime and discomfort. There’s the occasional swelling, but this won’t last more than a couple days, and most patients resume normal everyday activities immediately after the treatment. You may experience minimal bruising or redness that can last up to two weeks. Once any temporary side effects have subsided, your results should be visible.
How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?
Lip fillers are an alternative to the daily use of lipstick to draw in lip definition. The injectable material we use remains in the skin for up to 18 months.
