What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in many tissues and organs of the human body: epidermis, connective tissue, cartilage, synovial fluid, eyes, etc.
One of its most important properties is the ability to attract and retain water, which keeps those tissues in good condition.
However, it happens that during the aging process its presence in the body decreases progressively and, as a consequence, the skin loses hydration and, therefore, elasticity and firmness, becoming more flaccid and opening the door to the appearance of wrinkles. The same occurs in the joints, so that the cartilages become more rigid and can break and make you feel pain with every movement because of the friction between the bones. In fact, it should be noted that at age 50 only half of the body's hyaluronic acid remains in the body.
What is hyaluronic acid for?
Recover hydration levels.
Prevent and reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles.
Bring firmness and elasticity to the skin.
Promote the creation of collagen and elastin that support and sustain the skin
Advantages of Hyaluronic Acid Lip Filler
There are many advantages of this aesthetic treatment but without a doubt, the 3 main ones are the following:
1. With the lip filler that uses hyaluronic acid, a more hydrated and revitalized area is obtained. This is due to the properties that this substance has, since it offers and allows the treated area to have a better appearance and also a better texture. With this filling the lips will have a softer and more youthful appearance.
2.The second main advantage is the ability to have a better profile and natural lip augmentation without becoming excessive. Normally when other substances are used to make a lip filler the results obtained are not the most natural. This does not happen with hyaluronic acid, which gives lips more volume without being exaggerated or unnatural.
3. Finally, we must emphasize the possibility of eliminating corners with the filler hyaluronic acid lips. Being able to eliminate the corners of the mouth clearly improves the appearance, not only of this area but of the face in general. Lips with more volume, more projected, soft, hydrated and without lines or wrinkles around them without hesitation are much more attractive.
As you can see the advantages of filling lips with hyaluronic acid make this technique one of the most recommended that are made today.
Other advantages of the Hyaluronic Acid Lip Filler
For example, you must take into account that the Hyaluronic Acid Lip Filler is made using very thin micro-cannulas. This makes the procedure painless, which is obviously an undeniable advantage and also something that any patient would want. Likewise, the use of these thin needles allows the filling to be done quickly and without the appearance of bruises after the procedure. We can not fail to mention as an advantage the non-use of anesthesia to perform the procedure, which is also very appreciated by many people, since it minimizes all kinds of risks that may involve.
Finally and to conclude, we must point out as an advantage that the swelling of the lip after the treatment is minimal and with the passing of time it diminishes completely, showing the excellent results, which are really natural.
Thanks to the hyaluronic acid the structure of the lip can be improved: from correcting the asymmetries of the mouth, marking the Cupid's arch, reducing the gingival smile, to raising the corners, eliminating the bar code, rejuvenating the peribucal area or profiling the lip.
How long do the effects of Hyaluronic Acid on the lips last?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is reabsorbed by our body, therefore, the effects gradually diminish. Normally the results are seen in their initial state between a period of six months to a year.
Improve the hydration of the lip
What few people know is that this technique also serves to hydrate the lips and not only to increase their volume. Therefore it is highly recommended for those people who suffer from dehydrated or cut lips, especially in the colder months.
This treatment is minimally invasive.
The technique consists of injecting hyaluronic acid into the lips to increase their thickness, to highlight the profile and to elevate the corners of the mouth. This can be done with a cannula or with several injections using very fine needles depending on the patient.
If this is the first time you are going to have a lip filler, some experts recommend that it be done in two or three times, seeing little by little how the lip evolves. This way you can be shaped as you wish and until the desired result is obtained.
