Lip Injections History
Full lips with a bold border have often been associated with beauty and youth. Around 1900, surgeons attempted to inject paraffin into the lips without success. The next advancement was liquid silicone starting in the 1960’s but was abandoned thirty years later due to fears about the effects of silicone on the human body. In the 1980’s injectable bovine collagen was introduced and quickly became the standard in the cosmetic surgery industry. Skip ahead to the modern day and fillers have changed dramatically. Now we have more products on the market than ever before!
The most common procedure today is injecting dermal fillers. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected into your lips and around your mouth. However, the most common fillers these days are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. This acid is a natural substance found in the body and helps increase volume in your lips. These dermal fillers are often called hyaluronic acid fillers and have replaced the once popular Collagen. These new hyaluronic acid fillers are safer and the results are longer lasting. These fillers add shape, structure, and volume to produce luscious lips. The effects generally last approximately six months.
There are many hyluronic acid fillers on the market today including: Restylane®, Juvaderm®, Belotero®, and Hylaform® just to name a few. Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid that closely resembles the hyaluronic acid found in your own body. Because, the product is biocompatible with the human body, they are eventually broken down naturally. Restylane is the world’s most studied wrinkle filler with more than a decade of use and over 20 million treatments worldwide. Juvaderm is the #1 doctor recommended facial filler in Canada and worldwide. Belotero has a wide range of products to match each individual need and won the 2014 award for injectable product of the year. Hylaform is unique because of its source. It is harvested from the connective tissues in the fleshy portion of the top of a rooster’s head. Each rooster is specially bred for the purpose of making Hylaform® products.
The benefits of hyaluronic acid fillers are numerous. They control lip volume, bumps dissolve easily, the treatment is gradual, less bruising occurs, and the results are reasonably long lasting.
Getting lip injections is safe and relatively painless. With very few side effects, minimal downtime, and low maintenance, you can achieve natural looking lush lips in just minutes. The results are long lasting and drastic so why not enhance your natural beauty today!
