Lip Injection Candidates
Many people are good candidates for lip augmentation. Motivations for the aesthetic treatment include:
- Being born with thin lips
- Lips that have thinned with age
- Lips with downturned, sagging corners because of age
- Vertical lip lines above the upper lip
Numerous women, and even men are unhappy with thin lips that virtually disappear when they smile. Others feel that growing older has changed their lips. Aging is accompanied by diminishing collagen and hyaluronic acid, both of which are the building blocks of smooth, plump skin associated with youth.
The fillers we use for lip augmentation contain hyaluronic acid. This substance also occurs naturally in your tissues and joints. When injected via a dermal filler, the HA binds with water molecules to produce hydrated, smooth skin.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are a great option for lips. The material produces predictable results, and it looks natural. It is also long-lasting. These benefits are an advantage over fat transfers to the lips and older-style collagen injections.
Juvederm Volbella XC
Juvederm is a favorite filler for lip augmentation. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid. The results last for up to a year! You may choose to have injections performed again once the results fade.
Restylane is not only great for filling wrinkles, but for plumping lips as well. Most patients continue to see great results for up to 18 months. Ask our team which filler is right for you.
Lip Augmentation at Facial Aesthetics
Injections can be completed in a single appointment. Using fine needles, our experienced Aesthetic Nurse Injectors will administer the filler to targeted areas of the lips. The injection areas depend on whether definition, volume, lip lines or a combination of these things is the goal. Your lips will be topically numbed before the injections.
There's no downtime after lip augmentation. You may have swelling and bruising, so you may decide not to return to work or other engagements that day. These things will subside in the day or two following your appointment. You will see immediate results, and they will keep improving as swelling goes away.
The cost of lip injections varies. A consultation with our experienced team is needed. We will communicate the costs to you and any financing options for which you may wish to apply.
Lip injections should be performed by experienced Aesthetic Nurse Injectors who provide them routinely. At Facial Aesthetics, these treatments, plus many other non-surgical cosmetic treatments, are what we do every day. Your results will look natural while achieving the style that you want.
