With age, the lips lose their natural hyaluronic acid responsible for their hydration and providing them with volume. The lips become smaller, their colour changes, they become dry and less firm, and vertical wrinkles appear around them.
The changes associated with the aging of lips appear already around 30 years of age. The lip aging symptoms are an indication for the use of hyaluronic acid. Two types of therapy can be considered. On the one hand, one can use the non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid, which perfectly binds water, gives lips volume and moisturizes them, however the effect is relatively short. On the other hand, one can use the crosslinked hyaluronic acid in the form of a hydrogel, which, although it binds less water, it will provide a more natural effect that will last much longer.
The treatment is preceded by anaesthesia in the form of an anaesthetic cream. It is also possible to perform dental anaesthesia, which completely eliminates the sensation of pain within the mouth.
During the procedure, the acid is administered in the red zone of the lip. After the administration of the acid, a mouth massage is performed to evenly distribute the administered preparation. Immediately after the procedure the lips may be swollen, slightly painful and red. Small hematomas may appear within the mouth area. These symptoms usually disappear within a few days after the procedure.
The application of hyaluronic acid within the mouth is a safe method and the desired effect is achieved very quickly – the lips become full, sensual and well moisturized.
