TIme may have a positive effect on many things. Unfortunately, our skin is not one of them. The gradual loss of hydrating properties within skin can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. However, the lips are another common area that can continue to lose its supple appearance overtime. Now more than ever, having supple and pump lips is a desire for many people. If you are unhappy with the current look and shape of your lips due to heredity, or the natural aging process, we here at Orchidia Medical Group can help. We offer lip augmentation treatments for providing supple and youthful lips that best compliment you.
What is Lip Augmentation?
With personalized lip augmentation treatments, Dr Young and Dr. Cuberos use a specialized dermal filler, Restylane, in order to gently plump up the lips for improved volume. Restylane is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is the naturally occurring substance in the body that is responsible for skin hydration and elasticity. This revitalizing injectable adds the desired youthful plumpness to lips.
PDO threads are also used during your lip augmentation. These specialized threads are effective at defining the lips for an improved shape. Exilis Ultra can also be incorporated in treatments for successfully improving the formation of collagen on the lips, and within the surrounding tissue. This is designed to give your lips a naturally hydrated appearance. Each treatment is tailored to address the specific concerns and desires of each patient to achieve the best possible look for them.
Treatment times typically last less than an hour, and although there may be mild swelling immediately after, there is no required downtime. You are free to enjoy the results of your supple and youthful lips.
Restylane allows for the results of your lip augmentation to last for up to 6 months. However, multiple treatments are often suggested to maintain results.
Who is a Candidate?
Anyone that wants a change in the appearance of their lips. This procedure can be done at early age in the 20’s for a fuller effect on the lips, or in patients that have had volume loss with age.
