Can Dermal Fillers Help Heal and Prevent Chapped Lips?

If you regularly experience dry or chapped lips, chances are you are constantly using an ointment or salve to heal them. While this can help, it usually takes some time and can be frustrating. Chapped lips can be both painful and unsightly, and once the dryness and damage begin, it can be quite difficult to rehydrate and heal your lips. What you may not know is that certain dermal fillers, made with hyaluronic acid and used to enhance the shape of the lips, can also help to hydrate and heal your lips.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced by the body and found in the skin and joints. It functions to cushion the joints and hydrate the skin because it attracts and holds on to water molecules (moisture). In fact, it holds on to more than its own weight in water, which is why it makes a great dermal filler.
Your body’s natural production of HA wanes as you age, which contributes to your skin feeling thinner and dryer as you get older. Over time, you may notice fine lines and wrinkles as well. By injecting HA dermal fillers into certain parts of the skin, you can replace the body’s lost HA and enhance the smoothness and fullness of the skin.
Dermal fillers are appropriate to treat for many different conditions. For instance, they can be used to fill in areas that have become “hollowed out,” plump skin that has become thin and demonstrates fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the shape and size of facial features like the cheeks and lips.

Many women feel as though their lips could use additional fullness and suppleness. HA fillers are perfect for lip enhancement, as they last quite a while, look natural, and bring the added benefit of enhancing moisture in the skin. In fact, many patients who have HA dermal fillers for lip enhancement describe not having to use lip balms as much as before their treatments.
After careful observation of the natural shape and texture of your lips, we can make recommendations about the best approach to your lip enhancement. There are several different dermal fillers that have been proved safe and effective, and we will be able to determine which filler to use and the best placements and injection volumes to give you smoother, fuller lips for stunning results.

An added benefit of dermal fillers for lip enhancement is increased moisture in the lips. If you are ready for smoother, fuller lips contact Hudson Face and Eye at 347.788.1841 to schedule your dermal filler treatment today.
