Plump, kissable lips are a sign of youth and beauty. If your lips have lost volume and contour as you’ve aged and you’re tired of strategically using lipstick and lip liner to create the illusion of a desirable pout, there is another option to consider. Injectable dermal fillers are the secret to volumizing and enhancing your lips to enhance your pout with a natural look and feel.
What Can Fillers Do for You?
Fillers such as Juvéderm® are gel-based products designed to plump, smooth, and lift targeted areas. Juvéderm’s primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the human body to attract and retain moisture.
Injectable fillers are one of the best ways to restore the volume, support, and structure that gradually disappears as we age. Though you may also opt to use fillers to minimize mild to moderate facial lines and contour your mid-face area, Juvéderm is ideal for subtly creating fuller lips as well.
At M Spa Face and Body, we understand how to customize your injectable filler results, allowing us to do more than merely enhancing the size of your lips. For example, depending on the results you would like to achieve, we can also give you a better-defined cupid’s bow, improve the symmetry between your top and bottom lips, and even create a more upturned appearance if the corners of your mouth are drooping.
The Lunchtime Lip Enhancement
Injectable fillers are non-surgical and minimally invasive, involving zero downtime, no incisions, and no sutures. Filler treatment for a beautiful pout takes mere minutes and consists of carefully injecting your lips in specific spots to produce your desired appearance. Our experienced injectors use a fine needle to administer the filler. Juvéderm XC is also formulated with a local anesthetic called lidocaine to provide you with additional comfort during the treatment, which will put your mind at ease if you are worried about your ability to tolerate the procedure.
The Juvéderm family of fillers comes in various thicknesses, allowing us to provide you with customized results. After consulting with you about your aesthetic goals and evaluating your pre-injection lip shape and anatomy, we can provide you with the picture-perfect results you’ve been looking for, creating fuller, sexier lips as well as minimizing the look of wrinkles around your mouth.
What to Expect After Lip Injections
Because of the non-surgical nature of the injectable filler treatments, most people who undergo lip injections experience little to no side effects after getting lip injections. Patients will experience some swelling, bruising, and tenderness, but these are temporary and should only last around one week or less. Once these side effects have faded, you’ll be able to enjoy showing the world the same gorgeous, pouty lips you’ve admired in the pages of celebrity magazines.
Though the results of lip injectables are long-lasting, they aren’t permanent. Your body will eventually absorb the hyaluronic acid over time. You can prolong your results by following all the directions you receive at your injectable appointment, as well as by getting touch-up treatments periodically.
