Lip enhancement treatment for thin or unbalanced lips
If you are unhappy with thin lips or an uneven lip line, it’s important that you know voluminous lips are just an appointment away! Dr. Margaret Summerville of Chevy Chase Dermatology is a dedicated professional who is here to assist patients in the area of Chevy Chase, MD with cosmetic solutions for the face and body, and encourages patients to ask about lip enhancement at her facility.
How does lip enhancement work?
Lip enhancement is achieved by our team with the use of specialized dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. However, several fillers are approved by the FDA for use in the lips to add volume and achieve proper balance and harmony between the upper and lower lips. Injectables are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that attracts water molecules, allowing for volume improvement where it is injected.
Is lip enhancement safe?
Absolutely! Dr. Margaret Summerville uses FDA-cleared injectables and a steady hand to ensure precision results, and has an aesthetic eye to ensure the results look as natural as possible. As with any procedure, it is important that patients ask about side effects and complications during their initial evaluation appointment. Patients who may experience side effects following injections often note swelling, tenderness, and discomfort at the injection site, though these often occur for a few days before resolving on their own. It is still essential that patients discuss this procedure thoroughly with a professional at Chevy Chase Dermatology to ensure it is right for their needs and can help them achieve realistic results. Patients who are a good candidate for lip enhancement are those who understand the risks of treatment and are in good overall health.
