Why Consider Lip Augmentation?
Lips have a huge impact on the rest of the face. They move constantly when we talk, smile, or show expression. They can be covered and outlined by makeup but that can only do so much. Genetics gave us the lips that we’ve got and that’s it, right? Well, maybe back in 1916 we had to accept our lips the way they were but this is 2016! Lip augmentation has come a long way in the last 100 years.
Lip enhancements have been ubiquitous in tribal communities since antiquity. Right or wrong, there is something primal about lips that exude a sense of fertility, sensuality, and sexuality. Western cultures have tried to enhance the lips with bizarre concoctions of paraffin wax and other materials will little success.
It wasn’t until the 1980′s when people started modern techniques using collagen lip injections. The problem with collagen was that it didn’t last long and some people were allergic to it. When proper precautions were taken, the patient would have to wait about a month for the allergy test results to get back before her first injection. The world would have to wait several more decades before there was something better for lip augmentation.
Subsequent studies of molecular structures related to lip enhancement led to the use of hyaluronic acids that are still in use today. Hyaluronic acids are naturally occurring in the body so they can be used in patients even if they have allergies. Hyaluronic acids last anywhere from six months to a year so they are have outstanding longevity.
The success of hyaluronic acids have led to their wide spread use by unqualified medical personnel. This has led to horror stories freighting to the general public about lip injections. Caren, CMLT, a top injectable specialist at Arizona Facial Plastics, says that “Patients are consistently happy with the results they get with fillers in the lips. I’ve been in the industry for a long time and know all of the products. Understanding what patients want and how to maximize the lips they have is everything. Lip augmentation involves more than just injecting the lips with filler. The outer areas of the mouth must also be addressed ensure natural looking lips without causing an overdone look.”
Some patients want the best prices for Restylane or Juvederm in Arizona but you should let the provider determine which filler is best for you. Caren Kunda says, “I love working with new Juvederm XC Ultra Plus because it provides such consistently great results. It is interlaced with an anesthetic so patients don’t have the discomfort and movement during the procedure.” Because of Arizona Facial Plastics’s incredibly high volume use of Juvederm, Botox, and breast implants they are able to offer some of the best prices in the industry.
