Do you wish your lips were more defined, larger, fuller and…more kissable? Lip augmentation, a non-surgical procedure, has become very popular – and not just with the “In Crowd.”
It’s easy to have the lips you desire with injectable dermal fillers, like JUVEDERM, which is sometimes used in combination with Botox injections. Dermal fillers work by filling your lip with volume and are gradually absorbed by your body. Botox injections (botulinum toxin) weaken the underlying muscles near wrinkles to decrease the muscle’s movement.
- JUVEDERM contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in your body, making it easily accepted and unlikely to cause a reaction. JUVEDERM does not contain any ingredients that do not naturally occur in your soft body tissues. It is FDA approved and is proven safe and effective. The lip enhancement procedure is done in our office using a nerve blocker anesthetic to numb your lips and ensure that you are calm and comfortable before the actual procedure begins. The injections last about 10 months when used on the lips and may last several years when used in other facial areas.
- Following your procedure, you can return to normal activities immediately. There may be some mild bruising that can last a few days and can easily be camouflaged. There is no down time.
- Good candidates for JUVEDERM are those patients who don’t smoke, are physically healthy and want to enhance the appearance and fullness of their lips.
If you decide lip augmentation is for you, be sure you have thought about your goals and expectations. It is important to talk to your surgeon before “plumping” to make sure you have communicated the look you want. A good rule of thumb is “less is more.” Subtle injections which maintain the normal anatomy of your lips can result in a very natural appearance.
