Lip Augmentation: It’s For Men, Too!

Lip augmentation, the process of injecting the lips to boost their shape and volume, has surged as one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for women – but we can’t forget about men!

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more men than ever before are seeking out procedures to achieve plumper, more attractive lips. In a selfie culture that emphasizes aesthetic appearance, it’s no wonder that men want to look their best as well.

What Is Lip Augmentation For Men?

Men can receive lip augmentation, also known as lip fillers, the same way that women do. The most popular lip treatments are hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers

Skin cells actually produce hyaluronic acid naturally, and it’s this hyaluronic acid that keeps your skin hydrated. However, just like the aging process slows collagen production to a crawl, it also affects hyaluronic acid production. Lip fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid because just one single gram of HA can hold up to 33 ounces of water! As soon as hyaluronic acid is injected into the lips, it creates soft, sexy, pillowy volume.

What Are the Best Lip Augmentation Products?

There are a few dermal fillers designed specifically for lip augmentation, and they work just as well on men as women.

Restylane Silk, for example, is the first FDA-approved product designed specifically for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth.  Hyaluronic acid makes it possible to deliver natural and subtle results that prevent lip thinning while enhancing shape and smoothing away vertical lines above the top lip.

Juvederm Volbella, on the other hand, uses a blend of high- and low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules for improved cross-linking efficiency. This gel can be used to correct asymmetry, diminish fine lines around the mouth, and plump the lips for up to 12 months.
