Texas residents tend to be among the most demanding patients when it comes to anti-aging treatments and procedures. The field of minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedures has grown dramatically in recent years, and demand has increased along with it. If you are considering either surgical or non-surgical lip augmentation, you owe it to yourself to check out the latest innovations. Women’s lips are one of the most prominent aspects of their appearance, and most women in TX want to have luscious, pouty lips that increase their attractiveness. Unfortunately, the aging process is not kind to the skin and lips. Getting older tends to lead to thinning lips that increasingly display lines both on and around the mouth area.
Lip augmentation is a great way to enhance the volume and appearance of your lips to benefit your overall appearance. The most common type of lip augmentation uses something called dermal fillers or lip fillers to volumize the lips and reduce the appearance of lines caused by thinning lips.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance produced by your own body in large amounts until you grow older, at which point it begins to decline in both quantity and quality. Found in high concentrations in your eyes, joints, and skin tissue, hyaluronic acid has the unique ability to attract and bind water molecules within your skin cells. Since hyaluronic acid can become deficient in older people, you will likely notice a gradual thinning of your skin and lips that makes you more prone to the development of lines and wrinkles.
As you have probably guessed, hyaluronic acid lip fillers work by correcting the age-related deficiency of the special substance. They are injected into your lips to promote increased volume and smoothness. This helps reverse the aging process that led to the development of your thin lips and lines and wrinkles.
