A study by Gabriella Fabbrocini et al., published in 2012 (“Collagen induction therapy for the treatment of upper lip wrinkles,”Journal of Dermatological Treatment, Volume 23, Issue 2) concluded that micro-needling was an “effective and safe technique to improve upper lip wrinkles,” also referred to as “smoker’s lines”. Subjects of the study were all women between 50 and 65 years of age, and after just two weeks “the wrinkles’ severity grade in most patients was greatly reduced.” As a matter of fact, many practitioners are currently turning to Dermapen treatments to address this concern.
But what about the lips themselves? Can Dermapen Treatment give lips a plump, full look?
Many are saying YES! Practitioners and patients claim that a depth of .25mm is enough to create an appearance of fuller lips that can last up to a couple of weeks.* While the effects of the lip plumping treatment may not last as long as filler, many find it to be a quick, non-committal, and virtually painless way to give the lips just a little bit more “oomph!” – perfect for a big night out or a wedding weekend.
Some precautionary measures should always be taken – the doctor should always be aware of any medical conditions a patient may have, such as anemia, immune deficiencies, or proneness to cold sores. If the client is prone to cold sore outbreaks, a regimen of an antiviral drug, such as Valaciclovir should be followed to prevent a breakout.
