Lip augmentation is a non-surgical procedure that involves using cosmetic injections to enhance the volume, shape, and contours of the lips. Most people want full, shapely, and voluminous lips, but only a few people are graced with naturally full lips. And even those with naturally luscious lips eventually suffer from age-related loss of volume, leading to thin and dry lips. Skinology performs lip augmentation with specialized dermal fillers and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), helping you achieve fuller, softer, and more supple lips.
What is lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation does the following:
- Enhance the volume and fullness of lips
- Make the lips look fuller and more shapely
- Add volume to the contours of the lips
- Reduce the perioral lines around the lips
- Make the lips look redder and more luscious
If you opt for lip augmentation with PRP, the medical provider will draw a small sample of your blood and place the blood sample in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP serum is carefully injected into targeted areas on your lips using ultrafine needles, which will stimulate natural volume enhancement. The entire procedure concludes within 30 minutes.
We perform lip augmentation with
dermal fillers and PRP injections
We use hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to enhance the volume of your lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring and biodegradable sugar that binds up to 1,000x its own weight in water. When you’re young, your body has a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, making your skin look soft and supple, but your body’s ability to maintain hyaluronic acid is compromised with age. Injecting hyaluronic acid fillers into the lips enhances natural lip volume.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a natural component of the human blood with a high concentration of growth factors, the components responsible for most of the healing and growth activities in the human body. Growth factors can stimulate collagen production, skin cell regeneration, clot formation, and more. We draw a small sample of your blood, isolate the PRP, and inject it into targeted areas on your lips to stimulate natural lip augmentation.
What are the side effects of lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation involves minimal post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, irritation, and itching around the injection sites. The side effects usually dissipate within a few days.
Is there any downtime?
Lip augmentation doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately, but please avoid strenuous workouts for a few days.
When will I see the results?
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers produces instant results — your lips will look fuller and more luscious when you walk out of the medical spa. But lip fillers with PRP injections will produce gradual results over several weeks as your body stimulates natural growth.
How long do the results last?
The results of lip augmentation with fillers last for 6 to 12 months, depending on the chosen filler, your lifestyle, and how quickly your body metabolizes hyaluronic acid. And the results of PRP injections will last for several months or years with continued maintenance.
