Many people are confused about exactly how lip injections work. First of all lip injections can sometimes refer to as lip augmentation. Lip augmentation may include injections but also can include grafting of the skin to the lips area. We are mainly going to focus on the injection part as this is much cheaper and gives many women extremely good results.
Lip Injections involve filling the lip with a soft substance to create a fuller, plump appearance. Especially soft Collagen is the most widely used materials in connection with lip injections in Vancouver. Collagen is found in cow's skin and is great for temporarily augmenting the look of the lips. This is pure collagen but can cause some allergic reactions in some individuals.
Because of this possibility of an allergic reaction, it is suggested that a sensitivity test be performed at the lip injection clinic of your choice. Collagen is not the only thing that could be injected into the lips. Fat injections are another common method of achieving full, plump looking lips.
Fat is harvested from another area of your body, most often on the thigh or abdomen. The greatest thing about this type of injection is that you will not have the risk of any type of allergic reaction. Just as with collagen, the results are temporary and the procedure can be performed more than once to achieve the desired results.
