Your mouth is one of the prominent features of your face. So naturally, you want it to always look good. Unfortunately, time takes its toll on facial features, including lips. As we age, tiny lines can appear on and around the lips. Additionally, the lips can get thinner as volume is lost. Smokers can get deep lines creasing their lips. Facial fillers help to eliminate these problems, enhancing your lips and giving them a more attractive appearance.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to replenish volume, decrease the appearance of lines and improve the lips, providing a smooth, natural-looking appearance. Results are immediate and last for up to a year. This non-surgical procedure can give your lips a youthful, revitalized look in a matter of minutes.
Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement
Thin, aging lips can be enhanced and revitalized with dermal fillers like Juvederm® or Restylane®. Fillers smooth out the vertical lip lines associated with the aging process. If they are asymmetrical, they can be made to look balanced with improved symmetry between the upper and lower lips.
Lip enhancement can be achieved in as little as 15 minutes, and less than 30 depending on the process. There is no downtime, and you can resume your normal activities right away. You should, however, avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours after treatment. You will see complete final results within two weeks, and your treatment will last for up to 12 months. Periodic treatments are required to maintain the desired results.
Side effects are minimal and usually resolve within a week. They include temporary bruising, swelling or redness in the injection area. Rarely, a patient may experience an allergic reaction to ingredients in a filler. If side effects linger or increase, contact your provider.
