What are kind of products are use for lip augmentation?
Fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Perlane are frequently used to volumize lips, as they are to fill marionette folds or smile lines around the nose. These are hyaluronic acid fillers, a substance naturally found in the body, and therefore do not stimulate a foreign body or allergic reaction by our bodies. These require retreatment about every three to six months to maintain a full appearance since the filler gel is reabsorbed by the body. Areas with frequent movement, such as the lips, require more frequent treatment because the constant movement of the area causes faster absorption of the filler.
Besides dermal fillers, your own fat, gathered from parts of your body with fat to spare, can be injected into the lips for augmentation. Known as fat transfer, fat grafting, fat injection this is a more permanent solution to lip augmentation because, while some of the injected fat disappears over time, a portion stays permanently.
For permanent lip enhancement, SurgiSil, an FDA approved soft silicone solid implant can be used. It comes in various sizes to best suit a person’s needs. While permanent, it is easily removable should that be desired.
