Some people have very smaller lips that are not proportionate with other facial elements. This causes an odd aesthetic appearance. To increase the shape and size of lips to have sufficiently fuller and plump lips, lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure suggested by most of the cosmetic surgeons.

Lip augmentation surgery involves injecting dermal filler to lips to add their volume sufficiently.  There are different types of dermal fillers that can be injected in patient’s lips and mouth for proper aesthetic appearance to lips. However hyaluronic acid is the most commonly used injectable dermal filler for lip augmentation these days. This is a natural substance derived from human body and can add sufficient volume to lips. These type of dermal fillers are usually called as hyaluronic dermal fillers.

Collagen was earlier popular dermal filler however the new fillers are better for long lasting results and thus are preferred by cosmetic surgeons. Fat injections were also a method used earlier for lip augmentation. But due to their reported side effects and varying results, surgeons avoid their use.

Hyaluronic dermal fillers can help in adding volume, giving proper shape and improving aesthetic appearance of lips. The amount of substance to be injected can be controlled and thus surgeons would have better control on addition of volume o lips. Instead of completing the whole treatment in one single instance, surgeons can schedule dosages of dermal fillers for gradually attaining results. These dermal fillers easily dissolve any bumps and dumps created by lip movement and thus provided an even look to lips. Compared to other dermal fillers these fillers cause less swelling of lips and thus add to comfort of patients during the treatment. Though the results by injecting these dermal fillers would not be permanent, however it would be long lasting for sure. Additionally allergic reactions due to these dermal fillers are almost none. Thus patients can feel safe to have them injected in their lips.

Are you considering Sculptra?


Are you considering Sculptra?

Sculptra is a cosmetic procedure which works subtly yet gradually over some time to give you a youthful appearance. It does not work like the Hyaluronic acid fillers, but stimulates the natural production of collagen in your skin. This helps to restore the inner structure of your skin and increases lost volume. This is a one time treatment which may include 4 injections given in sessions set 3 weeks apart.

What is Sculptra?

Approved by the FDA, Sculptra is made with biodegradable and synthetic material called Poly L Lactic acid. This is biocompatible which means it is naturally absorbed back into your body with time. Sculptra helps to rebuild the collagen your skin lost with age with the number of treatments you receive.

Facial aging happens owing to the decline in collagen in your skin and Sculptra helps restore it. The wrinkles and deep folds on your face are hence reduced with the treatment. It is a perfect procedure for the reduction of smile lines, marionette lines and wrinkles on the chin.

What is the Sculptra treatment like?

Collagen is found within the deeper dermis where it supports the structure of your body and this is where your trained doctor will inject the Sculptra. About 3 injections are given during one appointment and with time, Sculptra promotes the reproduction of lost collagen. Depending on the condition of your skin and the changes desired, your doctor will determine the number of injections and appointments you will require for your treatment. It depends on the amount of lost collagen that requires restoration.

What are some side effects of Sculptra treatment?

Getting Sculptra injections might leave some tiny lumps at the site of injection. This is not serious though and you will find that the lumps reduce on their own with time. You do not require an allergy test before you begin your treatment. However, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in Sculptra, you must avoid getting the treatment. If you have an active infection and skin inflammation, you must not opt for this treatment at this time. Some other side effects of your Sculptra include redness, pain on the site of injection, tenderness, itching, bleeding and bruising.
