What is hyaluronic acid used for on lips?

Lips full of life give youth to the face. They are one of the parts of the body that arouse the most emotions and almost the first that people look at when they meet. As the years go by, lips begin to lose their splendor. Fortunately, there are hyaluronic acid treatments to improve your appearance. What is it for? Keep reading.  

Benefits of hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is extremely beneficial. As you age, your skin produces less hyaluronic acid. Free radicals and oxidative damage can also drain hyaluronic acid from your skin and leave it looking dry and dull.

Therefore, it makes sense that complementary use of hyaluronic acid, whether internally or externally, is very important to help maintain healthy skin, hair, and lips. 

Lip fillers with hyaluronic acid

When looking for an effective lip filler, hyaluronic acid filler is a favorite of many people and possibly one of the safest options. 

Found naturally in the body, it is considered a clean ingredient and since it breaks down slowly over time, boosting lips with hyaluronic acid can help minimize the appearance of artificial lips that other types of fillers can give. Therefore, hyaluronic acid results in a more subtle and natural appearance.

Additionally, hyaluronic acid fillers are derived from natural sugar, meaning it has very few allergen risks associated with it, even for sensitive people. Plus, it can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it ideal for locking in moisture and hydrating the surface of your lips. Extra lip hydration helps give your lips a fuller appearance.  

In short, hyaluronic acid works very well for plumping lips, as it helps smooth wrinkles and keeps cells loaded with moisture. However, since it is natural and breaks down within the body over time, hyaluronic acid should be used every so often.

Other ways to use hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid can help not only improve the natural shape of your lips, but it can also be used to adjust any asymmetry, reshape your upper lip, and reduce or improve other aspects. Hyaluronic acid injections can even be used to treat areas around the mouth, such as wrinkles, nasolabial folds, drooping corners, and more.
