Lip plumping, or lip augmentation, is a cosmetic procedure that people often receive to enhance the shape or size of their lips. Hyaluronic acid lip fillers are the most common way to increase volume in the lips. Cosmetic physicians can administer these injections using a needle or automatic needle systems like the Teosyal Pen, which was creatively designed specifically for lip injection with the Teosyal Kiss lip filler. People who prefer a subtle, gentle approach to lip filling versus lip injections with needles can also opt for a temporary laser lip-plumping treatment with Fotona laser.
Laser-assisted lip plumping is a revolutionary way to increase the volume in the lips with no injections, no pain, and no downtime!
Fotona SMOOTH Mode is the latest laser treatment that can increase the size of the lips and subsequently shrink and tighten the skin surrounding the lips in the same treatment, resulting in increased volume in the lips.
High-tech lips are surely a new trend in cosmetics!
As with all laser treatments, laser lip plumping is a temporary solution for patients who want to achieve a more youthful, fuller pout. As we age, the skin on our bodies begins to lose elasticity. The weakening of collagen and elastin fibres cause our skin to lose firmness and tightness. Fotona laser lip-plumping treatments target the skin tissue and the surrounding areas of the mouth. Below we answer some of the common questions when it comes to this advanced lip procedure.
Laser lip plumping works by delivering thermally induced laser heat energy to the lip area. Fotona Nd:YAG laser under Smooth Mode is a non-ablative, gentle laser treatment that targets the oral commissures, vermillion borders of the mouth, philtrum ridges, and cupid’s bow area of lips. It firms the skin around the lips to create a tighter, fuller appearance in the lips. The gentle lifting of the lips exposes more of the lip volume, and the laser heat energy stimulates the production of collagen by restoring stretch to the target tissue.
Laser lip-plumping treatments are quick and comfortable. Patients do not require any anaesthetic or numbing agents for the treatment. Laser energy is passed all around the lips and surrounding skin. Treatments can be completed in less than 30 minutes with no downtime. After laser lip plumping, patients may feel heat on the lips and around the mouth area, which will subside within an hour or so.
Laser lip-plumping sessions entail a quick appointment with your technician, who will treat the lips by using Fotona’s laser system to deliver target heat pulses into the mucosa of the lips. The laser induces the stimulation of collagen in the lips and surrounding area.
Laser lip-plumping treatments are required once a month for 3 months, followed by one session every 3 months to maintain the increased fullness in the lips.
If you are looking for a new way to add fullness to your lips without any needles, then laser lip-plumping treatments may be the answer you were looking for. Fotona is an advanced laser system that is indicated for innovative, non-invasive procedures for the face and body.
