Lip Augmentation can help improve visible signs of aging by enhancing the appearance of the upper lip. Such indicators as a long upper lip, down-turned corner of the lip, covering of the upper teeth by the upper lip or smoker’s lines may cause unwelcome effects and an older appearance.

Sharkawy Clinics offer various types of lip lift procedures, including a central lip lift, which shortens the upper lip and uncovers the upper teeth.

Natural Lip Gloss

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can make your lips fuller and plumper.

An injectable dermal filler is the most common method. The fillers come in different types, but most widely used ones have substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips.

A lip lift procedure can also help to increase the show (or that red portion of the upper lip) by decreasing the distance between the nose and the upper lip. This type of cosmetic facial enhancement does not necessarily augment the lip, but helps to elevate the upper lip area to make it appear larger. The incision is easily hidden at the base of the nose.

Collagen, once the most common dermal filler, is used less often today. The newer options are safer and the effects last longer.

Fat injections and implants are other methods to plump lips. But they aren't used as much today because the results vary and there is a greater risk of side effects.

Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

  • Shape

  • Structure

  • Volume

The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.
