We all have a good idea of what make for attractive lips, and they rely on fullness, softness and smoothness. Researchers have determined that there's a scientific precedent for this, a 2006 issue of Dermatologic Therapy writing that one of the characteristics of a young, beautiful face is centred on a "soft, full appearance" (Soft tissue augmentation 2006: filler fantasy). Unfortunately, age takes away from the face's natural beauty, robbing the lips of their youthful vitality and leaving them thinner and wrinkled.
Edelstein Cosmetic can help you improve the appearance of your lips by providing you with a full range of highly effective lip enhancement treatments. As the study mentioned above goes on to say, since "the lip [is] the focal center of the lower face, subtle lip enhancement is here to stay, and is in fact, the number one indication for injectable fillers."
Juvéderm® and Restylane® Provide You with Natural-Looking Temporary Results in Lip Augmentation
Revitalizing your lips can be simple and relatively fast with lip plumping injections. Temporary dermal fillers provide you with the results you need without any of the discomfort and recovery times that come with older, invasive surgical techniques. They're the most popular choice in lip enhancement, offering you natural-looking, rejuvenating effects that drastically improve your appearance. A 2007 Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery article, Injectable Soft-Tissue Augmentation: The Present and the Future, determined that these dermal fillers delivered with lip injections are able to give you the kind of results you need, providing "safe, effective, and long-lasting" benefits.
Juvéderm® and Restylane® are the most popular lip correction options formulated with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally created by our bodies and is an essential ingredient in the kind of healthy, full lips most common in our youth. An Open-label, Pilot Study to Assess the Effectiveness and Safety of Hyaluronic Acid Gel in the Restoration of Soft Tissue Fullness of the Lips, a study that appeared in The Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, describes the beneficial properties of hyaluronic acid as including "space filling, lubrication [and] shock absorption." Unfortunately, as we get older, our lips become undesirably thin and wrinkled. Juvéderm and Restylane® work to compensate by introducing hyaluronic acid, a substance that binds to moisture to make your lips fuller and smoother.
Problems like the common "downturned mouth" can also be treated with fillers. Safety and Efficacy of Nonanimal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid for Improvement of Mouth Corners, a 2006 Dermatologic Surgery study, found that a sample group of 15 middle-aged women suffering from "mouth frown" saw lip injection therapy providing "effective, safe and well tolerated" results.
Both Juvéderm® and Restylane® are temporary dermal fillers, meaning that repeat injections are necessary for patients who wish to maintain the positive effects of their treatment. The improvements that come from a product designed to create natural-looking results, safely and easily, mean that hyaluronic acid has to absorb back into the body to provide the level of enhancement it offers.
