Lip problems and solutions
Women in the Vancouver, British Columbia area unhappy with their lip’s shape, size, or symmetry may incorrectly believe that lip augmentation surgery is the only way to make changes. Fortunately, Dr. Rose Wong of Hush Beauty may recommend alternative options for patients to consider, including dermal fillers and medical-grade skincare products.
Common lip problems and solutions
For many women, thin lips are a concern and can be affected as time goes on due to the increased loss of collagen and natural fat. To combat this, many women will consider plastic surgery to augment the lips and improve lip contours. Some women may also be self-conscious about an undesirable shape of the upper or lower lips or asymmetry that impacts the harmony and balance of the facial elements. These issues are often caused by natural genetics and the process of aging.
Prevention and treatment of lip contours and concerns
Dr. Rose Wong will recommend dermal fillers as a lip contour treatment in most situations. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive and are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in the skin. HA helps to add volume and improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Results from dermal fillers typically last for six to twelve months, so touch-ups may be required to maintain optimal results.
In some cases, medical-grade skincare products may also be recommended by Dr. Wong to improve lip contour and prevent future issues. Skincare products containing retinol or peptides can help increase collagen production, which can help to plump up the lips over time. Additionally, using sunscreen daily will help to protect the delicate lip tissue from sun damage and premature aging. Some lip balms include SPF sun protection and can be used daily to protect the skin.
