Increase of lips with hyaluronic acid
Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid is an effective method of correcting individual and age-related changes in the shape of the lips. How to choose the right drug based on hyaluronic acid, recovery after the procedure and what the results depend on – about all this and much more in our material.
WHAT IS THE SECRET OF USING HYALURONIC ACID
Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid is a modern method of correcting the shape and size of the lips. He not only came to replace surgical interventions in cosmetology and aesthetic medicine but also practically supplanted surgical methods that help to increase the lips.
First, you need to understand what is hyaluronic acid. It is part of the intercellular substance and is its main component. With age, its amount decreases, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and dry skin.
But modern science does not stand still, so the deficit of this substance can be filled with the help of special drugs that contain hyaluron.
They are injected, that is, with injections. But you should not be afraid, because it is practically painless.
As for the lips, then by means of such drugs, it is possible to increase this area. But there is not only an increase but about rejuvenation, moisturizing.
Now, this procedure is at the peak of popularity, as plump lips have become fashionable, and many girls and women are inclined towards planimetric plastic (the so-called lip enhancement by hyaluronate). The fact is that it is much safer and less traumatic than a plastic surgery.
Hyaluronic acid effectively retains water molecules, which helps to smooth out skin folds and wrinkles as a result of increasing the volume of the intercellular substance.
An important advantage of the introduction of hyaluronic acid is the stimulation of restorative processes, which promotes rejuvenation of the cellular composition of the skin.
To apply the procedure of contour lip plasty it is necessary to resort to certain indications.
- Small or thin lips;
- You can see an obvious asymmetry of the lips;
- Dissatisfaction with one’s own appearance.
Often, they enlarge their lips with such 3 groups of clients:
- Young girls under 35 years. The purpose of this category is to increase the lips for their own attractiveness.
- Women of middle age from 35 to 50 years. Injections filler contribute to wrinkles and wrinkles, accentuate the insufficiently expressed lips, making them more sensual.
- Women over 50 years. It is important for these clients to remove sufficiently pronounced wrinkles and increase the overall tone of the skin of the lips. Much important is the fact that the skin is rejuvenated.
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE TO INCREASE THE LIPS
Continuous improvement of the contour plastic technique significantly reduced the risk of side effects from the procedure.
The lips are enlarged by means of a series of microinjections of special preparations. Means based on hyaluronic acid for this procedure are called fillers, from English “to fill” – fill.
The introduction of the drug on the basis of hyaluronan prevents the development of bruises in the zone of injection, which is an advantage in comparison with the use of synthetic fillers.
Two types of needles are used for injections:
- Small needles with laser sharpening, it helps to avoid skin injuries at the time of injection and also helps to eliminate discomfort and pain during the procedure.
- Cannulas, flexible tubes with a blunt tip for introducing fluids under the skin.
Cannulas for contour plastics reduce the rheum of edema and bruising more than 90%. This applies to zones that are maximally prone to the formation of bruises – eyes and lips.
The cannula cannot pierce the skin. To do this, anesthetic is applied, after which a sharp needle is made by only two punctures in each corner of the mouth (above the upper and lower lip).
Through a single input, a tube is inserted and the filler is distributed into the necessary layers of the skin. These same holes can be used to introduce the filler in the area around the mouth and even in the lower part of the cheeks.
Cannulas are less traumatic for tissues since they have a blunt tip. Flexibility ensures maneuverability without damaging the nerves and blood vessels, and therefore the chances of hematoma formation are minimal.
The introduction of the filler is carried out to a depth of 2-3 mm, in the space between the circular muscle of the mouth and the skin of the lips.
The injected filler is embedded in the areas of the skin where there is an insufficient amount of hyaluron.
Injections of the filler can be carried out as one-time and split the procedure into several stages.
Immediately after the introduction of the filler in the tissue, wrinkles and wrinkles are smoothed out, the skin acquires an increased tone.
They have the technique and have the right to carry out lip augmentation by such specialists as:
- plastic surgeon.
For contour plastics with hyaluronic acid, specialists must be trained with certification and obtaining an admission to the application of the technique.
THE CORRECT SELECTION OF HYALURONIC ACID (TYPES)
As already mentioned, a filler is found on the lips, which increases them and improves their condition. But not everyone understands what it is.
Fillers, which are based on hyaluronic, belong to the class of biodegradable fillers, that is, those that dissolve over time. They are most natural for tissues.
Biodegradable fillers are of two types:
- Monophasic filler – in the composition of hyaluronic acid with the same molecular size.
- Biphasic filler – the composition includes hyaluronic acid with different molecular size, which gives this filler a more dense consistency.
There is a wide range of fillers from different manufacturers. The choice of filler is based on such parameters as:
- The consistency of the preparation, the degree of smoothing of the skin folds and wrinkles depends on it;
- Excipients in the formulation, for example, local anesthetics, as well as collagen;
- Persistence of the effect of the use of filler.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, and others, are great for lip augmentation, but are temporary and usually need to be repeated every 12-18 months.
By the widespread and proven drugs on the positive side are Restylane (Sweden), Radiesse (Germany), Artefill (USA), Filorga and Juvederm (France).
These drugs have passed all phases of clinical trials and are licensed by the Food and Drug Administration of the FDA.
In the presence of an allergic reaction to ice medicine and other anesthetics, do not forget to choose a filler, based on which there is no analgesic component.
RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS
The technique of contour correction has contraindications. To protect yourself from unwanted effects of the procedure, it is necessary to familiarize yourself with the list of standard contraindications and limitations.
- Presence of chronic diseases of infectious-inflammatory nature;
- Weighed allergic anamnesis;
- Disorders from the hemostasis system (blood coagulability);
- Skin diseases of any localization;
- The use of antiaggregants and anticoagulants in the last two months;
- Diseases of hormonal nature;
- Presence of permanent (silicone) fillers in the zone of contour correction.
t is not recommended to give injections during pregnancy and lactation.
Recovery after lip augmentation
The skin of the lips has its own unique features of the structure. Dermis and epidermis are several times thinner than the skin in other places. In addition, there are many sensitive nerve fibers.
In the first days after the administration of the hyaluronic acid, a noticeable increase in the number of lips can be observed due to the local reaction from the side of immunity. In other words, a person will face edema.
This should not be feared, as swelling quickly passes without treatment.
The process of renormalization – skin rejuvenation – continues at the site of hyaluron administration during the first 7-10 days.
At this time, in order to achieve the most effective and lasting result, it is necessary to refrain from using other cosmetic procedures and taking food products capable of provoking allergic reactions, for example, sweet or citrus.
LIMITATIONS AFTER LIP AUGMENTATION
To maximize the effect of hyaluronic acid injections, to obtain beautiful chubby sponges, you must follow simple rules.
On average, the recovery process takes from 3 to 7 days. After that, the process of renormalization ends, and the lips acquire the final excellent appearance.
Do not use too cold or hot drinks, you need to maintain the optimum temperature regime. Visiting a sauna, a bath or a swimming pool should be postponed for several days to achieve a stable result of a contour correction.
In the first 3-5 days, you must stop using any cosmetic products and face masks. The same applies to the use of any lipsticks and balms. Do not exercise mechanical and tactile effects.
To ensure that the hyaluronic acid is embedded in the skin, during the recovery, you must give up facial massage!
The result consists of several components, the most important are:
- The quality of possession of the technique of a specialist performing the procedure.
- Individual features from the client.
- The conscientiousness of following the recommendations of a specialist in the early period after the injection.
- The use of proven and clinically recommended drugs.
Compliance with the above parameters significantly reduces the risk of developing undesirable or unsatisfactory results after the procedure for the administration of hyaluronic acid.
If you follow the recommendations, the lips acquire distinct outlines and are well contoured. The size of the magnification can be controlled directly at the time of the procedure, which allows you to choose the optimal volume and shape of the lips for the client
WHAT DETERMINES THE STABILITY OF THE EFFECT
Preparations based on hyaluronic acid have a great opportunity to bind water, which ultimately makes it possible to effectively capture water molecules in the intercellular substance.
All this increases the elasticity of the skin, helps eliminate wrinkles and wrinkles. This is especially true for the deficiency of its own hyaluronic acid.
Since fillers, which are based on hyaluronic, are biodegradable, that is, resorbable, then the effect from them will hold for a certain time. Resistance filler depends on the composition of the drug.
For example, the drug Restylane has a persistent effect for 5-6 months, after which there is a smooth decrease in lip volume due to biodegradation of the filler molecules.
But the composition of the filler Artifill is collagen, which helps to slow the resorption of hyaluronic acid. Such fillers retain the lasting effect of contour plastics for 8-10 months.
Fillers based on biphasic hyaluron have a more persistent effect, however, are distributed less evenly than monophasic fillers.
The use of injections of hyaluronic acid to correct the shape of the lips and increase them is certainly a safer method of all possible at the present time. Contouring plastic requires a competent approach from the specialist, his aesthetic taste, which coincides with the vision of the client, as well as the use of only high-quality drugs.
The effect of the procedure does not make you wait long and in a few days, you can see on your face the final result from the introduced filler. For the time of recovery, which takes from 3 to 5 days, it is worth to give up additional cosmetic procedures, and as a result, you will get the perfect result!
