Do you wish to shape, enlarge or rejuvenate your lips?
Fuller and bigger lips are becoming a highly popular aesthetic procedure. The appearance of dermal fillers as non-invasive aesthetic treatments that give results – immediately has classified lip augmentation as one of the most common aesthetic treatments. The procedure is minimally invasive, lasts 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area that needs to be treated and patients are free to return to their daily responsibilities after treatment. Candidates for lip augmentation are adults of both sexes who have a desire to improve their aesthetic appearance.
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers
Hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in dermal fillers. It is a type of glycosaminoglycan and is abbreviated to HA.
It is also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, and today it is available in most cosmetic preparations (injection, cream, serum, ecc). HA is a molecule of gelatinous structure and its main property is water retention.
Its role is to fill the “gaps” between the tissues and serves as a kind of shock absorber, thus reducing their wear. HA hydrates the skin, hair and eyes. This very important molecule was discovered in 1934, but its application and popularity in the cosmetics industry occurs only in the last twenty years.
Although HA is present in our body, it is broken down and synthesized on a daily basis. With age, its concentration in the body decreases, and muscle tone simply relaxes, as a result wrinkles appear. Because HA hydrates the skin, stimulates collagen production in the skin, it serves as an antioxidant, maintains skin elasticity, and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. However, its concentration declines with age and it has become an imperative for the aesthetic medicine to find a way to make up for the loss. HA also increases skin moisture and is suitable for all skin types, so it is applicable to everyone!
The big deception of the cosmetics industry that sells HA in creams, serums and other cosmetic products is that the concentration of HA in the product is 99% or 75%, which technically isn’t true, it is actually a mixture of HA and water. In addition, creams and serums are applied to the surface of the skin and thus draw moisture from it, so you dry the skin faster and as a result reach for new creams or serums which ultimately drives you into vicious cycle without a concrete solution to the problem.
With the application injections, HA is injected directly into the skin and it fills the cavities on the skin, thus solving the problem for a longer period of time.
In Dental Center Ostojić we use Restilan and Restilan lift dermal fillers from the manufacturer GALDERMA. The first dermal filler based on hyaluronic acid was created in Sweden in the 1990s, and then aesthetic medicine hasn’t been the same since.
Dangerous silicone fillers were replaced by gels that could be modified much better, they aren’t permanent, so any possible negative aesthetic effect can be melted away and the entire procedure can be repeated. Thus, patients can be provided with a completely natural treatment that gives an entirely natural, soft and sensual look to the lips. Restilan is the first dermal filler to be produced based solely on hyaluronic acid and has since been used worldwide and has been ranked as the best possible choice.
Although there are thousands of dermal filler manufacturers and their production is growing day by day due to increasing demand, we have decided to use a safe product backed by decades of testing and investing in the perfect formula. In addition, Restilan, along with some other dermal fillers, contains the ingredient lidocaine as a local anesthetic that makes the treatment completely painless. The outcome of treatment with hyaluronic dermal fillers lasts between 6-9 months and then the procedure can be repeated depending on the wishes of patients. In most cases, only 1 ml of filler is needed, which is nicely distributed in the disputed areas under the expert hands of professionals, thus giving a completely natural and full look to the lips and achieving complete facial symmetry.
