1. Dermabrasion And Light Peel

Dermabrasion is used as a beauty method that may not only eliminate acne, scars, and chickenpox but also decreases lines on and around your lips[8]. Peeling has the same function, but it may not be recommended for women who are vegetarians or on the Pill because they may heal badly.

With dermabrasion, you can use a hard round wheel or a rotating wire brush to remove the top layers of skin. And with peeling, you can care for your skin with cream daily in a month before operating and then apply a harsh chemical to peel off these top layers of skin.

Glycolic peel or chemical peel is quite scary by its name, but it is also a beauty treatment. It can remove your dead skin cells on your lips to make them smoother and softer. It may be milder than other kinds of products, but it can also be harmful if you use it for a long time.

Light peels are not to be confused with chemical peels because it is a beauty treatment, not a surgery procedure. You can use fruit acids to lighten cells on the top of the skin.  This method is often conducted in some beauty salon so it can have other bad effects besides.

If you want to use dermabrasion or peeling, you should take the advice from professional doctors to ensure the best results.

Besides facing problems related to lip skin, they are wondering about how to select one filler since there are many fillers introduced on the market nowadays. Everyone has their own problem and other solution, so the best way is to ask the experts for help before deciding what filler to proceed.

However, there are some cautions that need following. Firstly, you have to know clearly about your fillers for your wrinkles above your lips and why they are suitable for you. Secondly, if there is someone introducing a filler for you, ask her whether her technique would have other effects. And finally, you should remember that too many fillers or wrong fillers can cause some problems such as unnatural puffiness or even bumps.
